I have been beta testing from the beginning of this series, including this full release without any problems at all. As Corrine said the most stable release of the 3 series.

We haven't been offered the update on any computer - yet. Three of ours are on almost daily. The fourth got turned on by me yesterday to update Palemoon. Otherwise, it isn't used too hard.

I keep expecting it to be offered but so far, none of the four Windows 7 computers in the house has been offered it. Even if I manually check, it says I'm up to date.

Info on the latest patch:  Malwarebytes 3.4.5 - patch release. I obtained the update via Settings > Application > "Install Application Updates".  Note:  the update requires a restart.

I was just about to update my post.  :)  An update wasn't required on Windows 10, version 1709 but it was on the latest Insider Build.

I just got another 2 week free trial of the premium version.
Two in a row, this close together, is unusual.

No Not unusual, you will always get a free trial on major updates.

I understand that, but this one is still in the 3.4 series, was released in the same month as the last "Major update", and was described as a "Patch".

I'm not complaining, just surprised...

I was just offered an update to MalwareBytes premium.  to 3.4.5

After the update installed, my Windows Defender Virus and Threat protection is now showing a red X and is off.

In the panel,   it says "threat detection has stopped. Restart it now:

I clicked the button to restart it but it seems to be in a loading loop.  I'm getting an error message Same result when I retry.
ERROR Message: Unexpected error. Sorry we ran into a problem. Please try again.

So what do I do next?

(If I put this in the wrong place, please move.)

I made a change when first installing that was recommended.  I have it set to:
* Never register Malwarebytes in the Windows Action Center.

Could that be a problem now?

I'm assuming this is not a critical problem and I can keep browsing, since MBAM is on watch.  Is that right?

OK, so I just tried again  (without changing anything) and  apparently it worked this time.  I'm back to the Defender green checkmark on the taskbar shield and on the Virus and Threat protection page.

I wonder what happened.  That was a little disconcerting, to say the least.

Also, I was not asked to restart anything.  I clicked "Install Application Updates" just now as mentioned above.  I got a message that no further updates are needed.

(Guess I need to update my computer specs now. )

You may want to launch Malwarebytes and on the Settings screen click "Application".  Scroll down to Windows Action Center and change the setting to "Never register Malwarebytes in the Windows Action Center".

Thanks. That is the option that is marked already.  But I checked to make sure.
