Thanks.  That wasn't there when I checked about an hour ago.

"Message updated at 21:45 PST. Users should now be getting updates." I updated - no problem.

Hmmm, when I checked for updates, it said I was current and at 3.4.5.

But when I opened Malwarebytes and told it to check, it said there was an update available. Okay.

So I installed the update and was disappointed it wanted me to reboot. Okay, I can live with that, just not this moment, so I said not now.

I was VERY disappointed to see Malwarebytes then just exited.  :( Why? So now, if I want my protection back, I am forced to reboot now anyway. Not happy about that.

Hmmm, back from the reboots and now another oddity. I have SUPERAntiSpyware installed on this system too (mainly because I got a bargain lifetime license offer several years ago).

After applying this 3.5.1 Malwarebytes update and rebooting, SAS was not sitting in my System Tray. Why? I manually started it, checked preferences and I see that now SAS is no longer set to start with Windows. I know it was as I am in the habit of looking at my System Tray after every boot to see when my computer has completely booted.

So I set SAS to start with Windows again and after a second reboot, all is good, but not happy Malwarebytes messed with my SAS settings.

Occasionally, Malwarebytes hasn't shown in the SysTray after a restart (usually when installing a new build).  Rather than restart, all I've had to do was go to Program Files to launch mbam.exe.

It was not in the System Tray after this update either. But it was hidden so I just dragged it down and now it stays there. That is a common issue after upgrades of this, and other programs too.
