Additional information to my reply #11 above.
It seems that doesn't always work.

The first computer I tried it on downloaded the latest application version. The next two I tried, I was told there were no updates. So apparently MBAM decided when it is ready to send the update.

Yes, due to the number of users and the impact on the servers, updates are staggered.  That is why they provide a download on the website for those who don't wish to wait.

The issue seems to be resolved by TURNING OFF the DNS Service in Hostsman.  I will do some reading at that site to see what he does, but it is back to working at the speed it should be.
Thanks to all.
