We have now disabled the previous beta test key, however you may now use your existing 1.x license keys with this version or you may use the trial.

To download the latest version, please click CHECK FOR UPDATES in the application. We would love if most of you upgraded this way to test the upgrade path. If you would like to install it for the first time, you may download it here.

If the upgrade is successful, you'll see version 2.00.0.504 in your title bar and under the Settings->About tab.

I think it is still BETA-
OOPS!

The MBAM 2.00 team would prefer that all issues/problems with 2.00 beta be reported in a special section of the forum >>HERE<<.

(The mod team will probably move this post to that section.)



Having said that, it seems that others are also reporting the same issue >>HERE<<.

So you might want to follow that post, as well.



Other than that, we'll need to wait for the staff/devs to reply about the password issue.

EDIT: It appears that .504 may be an RTM/release version that requires use of one's previous, paid MBAM PRO consumer license ID & key for version 1.xx, not the temporary beta key.

So, you might want to try to activate beta .504 with your paid ID/key from version 1.xx and see if that works?



Thanks!

On their site they are still giving the 1.75 version, even so they must be close to the final release. I really like the new interface is so much better. Now MBAM looks like it can protect a computer by itself. :p
lol... yea MBAM looks way better now. btw I think its the RC build. I've activated it with my v1 key.

Source please. Only one person has published this before as you.
Why ask for a source when you posted it on another forum with the same screenshot as above and the same download link provided by Myna?

Scan results for mbam-setup-2.00.0.0504.exe provided by Myna

mbam-setup-2.00.0.0504.exe VirusTotal Results

100% Clean MBAM 1.75.0.1300 & Emsisoft Antimalware

It appears to be either an RTM or out of beta stable release,from what I can gather on their forums

I downloaded 2.00.0.504 and installed it right over the top of 1.75 Pro and had no problems.Activated automatically on install and did not have to enter my 1.75 key

Im impressed with it so far. My girlfriends laptop, is an older single core, not much power, it has ESS on it, and placed this along side ESS, can not even feel it is there...

I think they should have a portable version for the free one.

it still uses 200+ MB ram on my machine, so the memory usage reduction that is highlighted in the changelog does not apply.

I've got the premium version using my earlier version key but I'm seeing an annoying blue bar at the bottom of the interface,
How can I get rid of this?Is there a setting somewhere?:confused:
Thanks!!:)


Below is the bar I'm talking about:

Maybe they will remove this in the final release but I have it only when scanning though so maybe they figure you want to read something while your scanning :D Maybe it will end up on the free version only.If it stays just where its at only in scanning I can deal with it.I like the new look but that did kind of kill it for me

Same here, I like the new interface, but that "blue bar" is actually an eyesore:mad:

While I'm scanning I'm reading the wonderfull posts here on MalwareTips!!!:D;)

Cheers!!

I like how in version 1.75 you can disable real time protection to use it as a on demand, and the main UI is not affected by this, like it is in this newer version, where it lights up the red bar across the UI telling you that you need to "fix it".. Not so sure im digging this change.
