Sorry, I should have "bumped" the thread with announcement about the update which more information (done now, better late than never).  That topic has a direct download link for the update:  Malwarebytes.

Anyway, Linda, first, launch MBAM and go to "My Account".  Although it shouldn't be needed, make a note of your license information.  Then complete a system restore point (my recommendation before installing new programs/updates).

Version 3.0 will install over the top of version 2.x.  It will also remove the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.  As to working well with NOD32, as Basil pointed out above, it is working just fine with NOD32.

Hi Corrine,

Thank you.  I appreciate your help.  I have a lifetime license and didn't like the idea of doing the uninstall if I didn't have to; just an extra step.  Yes, I will create a restore point.  So, here is hoping that it all works out okay on my computer.

H Corrine, thank you.  I've been holding off installing the new Malwarebytes until next week.  I don't like to do major changes over a weekend where there isn't much for help directly from the company (like Malwarebytes) if you need support.  I did my system restore, so hopefully if I have to I can go back to the version of Malwarebytes I am currently running - 2.2.1.1043.  I am assuming that the version I have is still properly working.

Yes, version 2.x is still working properly.  You can go ahead and install version 3 when ready or wait until it is offered for update.  That will be done in batches, likely after a couple of weeks when the activity slows down from those updating manually.

Hi Corrine,

Thank you for your suggestions and help, so much appreciated.  I'm waiting at this point.  I do not like to have to do manual updates; so I am waiting at this point.  Good to know that my current version will continue to work as it has.

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.

Does that mean you won't get the anti-ransomware and realtime protection, right. If that's so, then I better update ASAP, and keep my anti-ransomware.

Only subscribers of the premium version will get MBAM, MBAE and MBAR (Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware) included.  Users of the FREE version will only get MBAM.  However, the Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware programs will remain as FREE stand-alone programs.

Being it was patch Tuesday, I updated to v3 on Win7 32-bit. Had to enter lifetime license info in again, but it kept my 'Exclusions' settings. No problems running realtime so far on that PC. If I have issues I will first suspect Anti-Exploit and disable.

Version 3.06 installed over version 2. So far no problems other than a small slow down at start up and shut down. Seems to be working with Nod 32 OK.

I find it odd checking for updates in MBAM Premium V2.2.2.1043 still does not notify users V3.x is available. The word was, V3.x won't be pushed to 2.x users until a more stable version 3.x is released. Does this suggest even the folks at MB are not confident in this latest release?   :-\

It does say its a preview version, so perhaps not. They admit it still has some bugs yet to be sorted.

Won't even update the 3.05 version to 3.06 when manually checking for update. Had a popup yesterday saying database was out of date, so looks like an update delivery problem, at least on my end.
