 :o Clear as mud!
Since I only touched the Advanced settings on one of the 5 computers, my husband's Win 7 Pro desktop, I'll let checked/ticked what is currently shown.
For some reason I couldn't determine, his MBAM wasn't appearing in the tray so not updating nor protecting. When looking, I discovered that nothing was selected! I made sure it was set to update and protect and then I ran a scan to be sure something hadn't gotten in and disabled MBAM.

I'll double check what settings are enabled after I get the new version of MBAM sometime in the coming week.

I must apologize, clearly my memory is bad. After talking to someone at another forum, who showed me the default setting page for MBAM
https://www.malwarebytes.org/support/guides/mbam/AdvancedSettings.html

I got out my notes.  :-[ Right there, black on white, 2/3/16 enabled self protection mode in Settings/Advanced Settings because of bugs found and will take awhile to fix.
I changed the setting and promptly forget I did so.

There you have it. Check or uncheck, whatever your preference.

If I  set malwarebytes to  self protection.
In Windows computer management I get all these in System event logs. (see attachment)
Turn of Self protection they go away.

Just curious if anyone else gets these.

If memory serves, enabling the self-protection module (Advanced Settings) will result in Event ID 61703 flooding the Windows System Log because Chameleon is checking the digital signatures/certificates of processes in memory, and logs an Information Event when it is unable to verify. 

I've seen some threads at the MBAM forum discussing incompatibility between the self-protection driver and some other piece of software on the computer, due to the ver nature of a self-protection driver it can have compatibility issues.  Turning the self protection off would stop your information logs since it isn't running ...

Meant to add this morning that I updated the http://www.landzdown.com/anti-spyware-software/malwarebytes-anti-malware/ thread for version 3.0 (actually a copy/paste from my blog post but . . . ;) )

I have had to remove version 3 and go back to v2.
Apart from all the various shut down problems it is now causing IE11 to freeze, mostly on the Mbam forum, go figure.

I installed V3 last night, updating from V2, using Corrine's link provided in Security Garden, on my Windows 10 Pro. (Thank you Corrine  ;) )
Installation went without a hitch, and programme seems to be working very well.
It seems to be fully compatible with NOD32 AV9 which I will probably keep till license renewal date in April 2017. I will then probably uninstall NOD32 and just use MBAM 3.
I am using it with its default settings.
The installation did not prompt for a computer restart, but it is absolutely necessary.

Pleasantly surprised by the speed of the scan. Scanning time with V2, was about 10 min. With V3, it is 55 seconds!  :o
So far, so good! Fingers crossed  :)

Contrary to popular belief and some of the download sites, the latest version of Malwarebytes is not free. It is, at best, a trial version in which many crucial features--like real-time protection and anti-ransomware--become disabled after a certain period of time.

If you don't want the paid version, stick with 2.21 version and use Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit which are still free.  I see a little slight of hand going on here with the so-called "free" version of Malwarebytes. ::) ???

No, darksurfer, it is free.  Merely UNcheck the option for the trial just as always been the case.  If that isn't unchecked at the time of installation, the option to revert to the free version will be provided at the end of the trial period.

Confused about this new version 3 of Malwarebytes.  I have a Windows 7 Dell desktop and use Chrome all of the time.  The Facebook Page for Malwarebytes reply to my question about it was that I had to uninstall my current 2.2.1.1043 version (which is premium for me) and then install the new 3.0 version.  I also am using NOD32 antivirus and the Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit free on my computer. 

So, I access a link they provide me about this and I read:

Also, in the link you shared about the annoucement it states in the Q&A section:

"I have a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware lifetime license. Will it work for Malwarebytes 3.0?

Yes! Simply install Malwarebytes 3.0 on top of your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and your lifetime license will automatically apply to Malwarebytes 3.0."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, which is it; uninstall and then install new 3.0?
What about NOD32 antivirus, how will that act?
And, do I go in and uninstall the free Anti-exploit as well? 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If what I do causes problems will doing a system restore resolve them? 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.   Thank you.
