2. RAM usage. Just 40MB (idle) when you not open up the GUI. and + GUI you'll get mbam.exe with 81MB ram usage.

Updated, Thanks for the notice.

Restored to an image, Had issues on my PC. So I don't have VMWare installed, A pitty since I wanted to start a video purely testing Chameleon technology against many malicious programs.

Chances are I'm not the only one that planned on doing so or most of you will privately test it. Good luck I hope it goes well. If you have feedback, Let us hear it! :)

Updates are smaller for non-paid versions too. Good job.

I just enter "mbam.exe /update" from the Run.

Update mine earlier. I'm not using the PRO version for RT Protection but I tested it and Chameleon works flawlessly.

With small updates it made really easier especially some users who were having not so good connection.

I managed to try out Chameleon. The results are good. I installed Win 7 Security 2012 rogue aswell as some other malware. The rogue blocked mbam from opening. After running "mbam-chameleon.pif" mbam did it's thing and nuked the rogue and other malware.

I must say that the .exe and .com files in this case were of no use. They were blocked outright by the malware and if it wasn't for the .PIF and .SCR files, Chameleon wouldn't have been able to do it's job.

Anyone got any information on how Chameleon Technology actually works?

I haven't been able to find a definitive source of info but I imagine it's similar to Hitman Pro's "Force Breach" mode. It may terminate all un-needed processes on the system, which include malicious processes. Some clarification would be appreciated.
