Pay for incremental updates?  What a rip off! :-(

    I believe they mean the non-free version updates itself, the
free version you have to manually download the installer, when a new
version comes out.
    They are not referring to the signature files. These update in
both versions.

    Now I'm confused. It's much more expensive for a company to
offer full signature files than incremental files, it eats up much
more bandwidth.
    So I interpreted it as referring to the program (as in Avira,
which updates both the program and signatures automatically, but
offers an enormous update file for PCs without internet connectivity,
for "manually" updating).
    The bottom line is, Malwarebytes is a very good program, with
a freeware option. I'm happy with it.

No, I do not think this is it.

Yes. However, in the paid for version you only get the sigs which you do
not already have (small download). In the free version, you get the
whole set (currently > 7MB, used to be 3 MB when I started using MBAM)

Yes, we are in agreement there.

Maybe you can look at ALL differences between free and paid versions

Who's crying Wolf?  I see a new feature that says "incremental"
(something that they have promising to institute for at least the last
6-7 years) and I"m thinking, at last and then see you have pay for it.
As in my reply to David, It appears that they are talking about "auto
schedule".  How is that incremental,when the size of the downloads are
just about the size of the application. (Ask the dial up customers and
see if they consider those downloads incremental?)

You.

You can get a very good product for free, but all you do is complaining
that the product is not perfect for you.
If you don't like it, don't use it.

Your reply deserves no answer.  You haven't a clue..............

Hey my freeware version get's updated automatically daily at 5:00 PM
followed by an auto scan and it doesn't cost me a cent or the click of
a button and NO I haven't altered the program in any way.  Now why
would I want to pay for something that I already get for FREE?  Like I
said, you haven't a clue..........

I see


Thank you for your information.
I will try Spyware Terminator.
(and my MBAM is updated every two hours.)

For your information, Avira is doing incremental updates.

By the way, your use of the term "rip off" is indeed remarkable.

Re: Malwarebytes v1.60 released

It happens that FredW formulated :
Quoted text here. Click to load it

You didn't say whether your MBAM is free or pay, if it's the freeware,
good for you for discovering on how to get to update every two hours.
I had mine set for twice a day, but decided one time is more than
enough.  As I type this the updater is now downloading a 5.85MB
download. Oh wait, here comes another one 10.35MB (must be the new
version), oh wait, here comes another download, this one is 5.98MB
(normal update)now imagine that on a dial up connection.
Quoted text here. Click to load it

I know that, they were doing incremental updates when I was using it
too.  But at the time I was on dialup and every time an update was more
than 2MB in size, the server would hang or just stop and I would then
have to get my "incremental" update by manually downloading a 29+ MB
download.
Quoted text here. Click to load it

It makes more sense than the example given. How are you being "ripped
off" if the author decides to eliminate a feature for something that is
being offered at no cost to you?  You may not like it, but being
"ripped off", I hardly think so, you move on and try to find something
better.

Have a nice evening Fred.

Where I live there is no dial-up connection anymore.
Of course you can download a new version yourself as I do
and install and update at a convenient time.

Mozilla (Google subsidiary releasing Firefox and Thunderbird) is now
changing features almost at random at a rapid rate.
I do not like that, so I move on and try to find an alternative.
I do not call it an "rip off", because in my opinion that is accusing
someone of a criminal act like fraud.

Mozilla a Google subsidiary ?

While Google is finacially subsidizing Mozilla for another 3 years, they are not
a
"subsidiary" in that they are not subordinate organization under the Google
corporate
banner.

I know, but where Zo uses "rip off", I use this description.

I read that Google pays 1 billion dollars (1.000 million dollars) over
three years to Mozilla (three times as much as before).
And as Asa Dotzler is speaking in very admiring terms on the advertising
policy of Google, I wonder how independent he is nowadays:
http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/asa/archives/2011/12/firefox_and_google_-.html
(you don't have to be under the same banner to be subordinate.)

Another of those many changes of policy (and attitude) at Mozilla?
I have already found a replacement for Firefox.
I am now looking for a replacement for Thunderbird, without hurry.

Asa Dotzler is a d!ckhead.

I think the amount is more like 300 Million USD over 3 years.

    It's small, fast, and I can't find a "geo" in about:config.
    ;)
    The learning curve happened years ago. All the privacy tweaks
included.
    I use the same profile in all my OS (debian wheezy, Ubuntu
10.04 and win XP SP3)
    And it sends and receives mail, and supports the spell
checkers I use. What more do I need ? I'd still be using Mailwarrior
if it was multi-platform and I didn't have to setup a ssl service to
access my accounts.
    They say it's insecure. Maybe you could send me something
malicious as a test ? I would not mind. Maybe I'm being stubborn about
upgrading.
