Somehow, we missed the announcement of the release of Malwarebytes 4.1.  I just received the "Upgrade Available" notice on my PC and discovered that 4.1 was released on February 27.  See Malwarebytes 4.1 - Malwarebytes for Windows Support Forum (https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/257102-malwarebytes-41/).

Post questions, comments, etc. about the update in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Update Discussions (https://www.landzdown.com/anti-spyware-software/malwarebytes-anti-malware-updates-55632/).
