Malwarebytes 3.1 Now Available



This is Malwarebytes 3 the way it should have been released. Way more light on resources, no bugs and very useful options such as the possibility to disable warnings when a real-time component is off.

Let's be honest, Malwarebytes might have screwed up their initial launch of version 3.0, but they have made real efforts to repair their mistakes and improve their products, making it now what i consider a top notch security software.

Also their support on the forums are excellent and they seem to really have listened to what their customers wanted. Add to that their very honest licensing policy (you can use your old anti-malware or anti-exploit license with their new product, even the old lifetime subscriptions) and i think that it's fair to say that they have made up to their mistakes.
