sounds good to me.congratulations.
You said you just got the pro, right? The lifetime lic will be good with the new v2.o when it comes out. I'm still testing it and it looks good. You know that the Pro doesn't block URL's, just IP's and that makes it great for P2P.. Even tho it don't block url's, if they get downloaded, the realtime file scanner grabs them. HiHo
looking at the beta as we speak.so to speak.
If you play with it, you must uninstall your 1.x version. they conflict.
done and done.
If you're going to test it and play like I do, don't be a hammerhead, use a virtual machine or have an image backup so you don't get in trouble. lol
Today I turned off all my protection and downloaded some zeroday threats, well one of them ran in my desktop screen and I couldn't find or get rid of it with anything I tried. Finally had to boot back into my real computer to get rid of it.. Sure hurts my pride to have to give up..
got my hdd clone to fall back on.hammerhead you say?im the origional mule there.getting better with old age tho.
Be glad you have that fall back. there's a major bug that came out in the last update, ver 2.00.0.0503
You might best step back.....
Yeah, it went south on me today:
Well here's the work around but, I think I will let them get a little more of their shit together before running it on my "real" machine again. I'll stay in my VM with it. lol
Just a little follow up. did you get the database up date that corrected mbam 2?
seems to be working ok now...
I'm a glutton for punishment, I'm still using it in my real machine. LOL
no i uninstalled as soon as you warned me.went back to the old version.think its safe now??
Yeah, they fixed the update bug and seems like all ok. been running it and no problems so far. I like MBAM because it blocks bad ip addresses and gets the bad trackers when using utorrent. Avast also has a p2p filter.
one thing i couldnt get used to was k-9.it was a little to over by shoulder.its kind of like when you get told you have to wear a bicycle helmet after 50yrs of not wearing one.i think i will just make sure i have an up to date clone of my drive waiting to bail me out.lol
Oh haha, yeah k9 can be a little confusing, but it's the best dam blocker that has came along since a host file. host files have to have hundreds of thousands of addresses to block and they are always way behind the times. k9 does it in real time. most of the time when i am checking zeroday threats, k9 is the first to catch them. when i disable k9, avast is the next. FF is always in there and MBAM is the backup. if it misses them and allows them to download then it will catch them with the scanner when opened. Layered protection, I have worked on it for years and it works!
Guess you got the update for mbam 2. I think it's a pre release of the final. The Beta key will not work but if you had a key for the 1.75 ver it should pick it up from the reg. If it doesn't, you can insert your 1.75 key and you are good for life....
yep,got it.seamless transfer.
What are your thoughts on the ver 2? I see a few things that could be changed for my liking but nothing I can't live with.. maybe cut the size of the popup notifications.
