Much of today's malware gets served up from a server that checks what
you are running and decides from there what to serve you. IOW, you're
using the wrong bait. :o)

I use Mozilla Thunderbird 3.1.15 portable
http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/thunderbird_portable/localization#legacy
I can use all my preferred add-ons.
I see no reason to join the race for higher version numbers.

    Out of curiosity, type "geo" in the about:config searchbar. If
it exists , and is "on", have you ever been warned about tracking ?

    Wonder how this "feature" helps me when posting or receiving
an email message ? Maybe it searches for the cheapest ISP in the block
?

    PS Not sure which version of Thunderbird started using it. You
might be "malware" free. Ooops:

    Well, maybe you built the feature "out" when you compiled your
portable version.

geo.enabled - now changed from (default) "true" to (user set) "false"

I did not make the portable version myself.
(see above link)

Thank you for the warning.

Thunderchicken I found, when retrieving Gmail, is very very slow and
sluggish but to its credit it does get the job done.  But it's
terrible on my Multi-core Pentium machine running Windows 7.  Still,
it's free and I use it just to check Gmail (I will not swtich from
Outlook for my regular business POP3 mail account).

Malwarebytes anti malware has not existed that long and incremental updates was
never
promised.

BTW:  Don't forget, I was a Malwarebytes' paid employee.

Why did they fire you?  Incompetence maybe?

For the record, my free Malwarebytes updates every 2 weeks the entire
database (takes about 30 seconds) so I don't see what the fuss is all
about...I guess incremental is smaller downloads.  In any event
Malwarebytes does find some stuff other programs don't.  At some point
I might upgrade to the non-free version.  On one of my machines I
don't get downloads from Microsoft for Windows 7 since it's a Thai
(free) version, so I have to make sure that machine is more secure by
perhaps adding a paid program to it--but for now I have not noticed
anything amiss (if I have a trojan it sure is slick because I've not
seen any damage to my bank accounts or any usual traffic to indicate
my machine is owned as a zombie).

Can you cite proof that David was fired? Perhaps you should be more
careful what you type? A simple comma between 'why' and 'did' would
change the whole flavor of your query to something less libelous.

Speculation like this on its own may be okay, but coupled with the
above, this question just gives more credence to the idea that you are
committing libel with your first statement.

How is that a rip-off when the free version works the same way as it always had.

Re: Malwarebytes v1.60 released


David H. Lipman laid this down on his screen :

Maybe I'm wrong, but I was with understanding that "incremental
updates" were minute ones that updated the database only and not what
amounts to downloading something that is the size of the entire program
for each update. (and by the way, they have been promising to institute
it for only the last 6-7 years, so that is what I thought this addition
was. But from what I see per the demonstration on the site, what they
are talking about is really auto scheduling, that is only available in
the pay version. Maybe you can explain the difference between "auto
scheduleing" and "incremental"?

And why pay for something that you can do for free  by using the
windows scheduler and a little freeware app by the name of PTFB (push
the freakin button).

And for your information, the OT program that I use, does have real
"incremental" updates, you know, minute ones that download so fast that
you barely notice it,  together with auto scheduling and real time
protection.

Incremental updates means you only download new, changed or delta, updates.
Auto updaing means there is a facility withing the stub application that will
automatically periodically obtain updates.

Since upon updating the both the paid-for and the free versions of MBAM can
remove the
same malware, that is not even near being a rip-off.

The fact that Malwarebytes reserves their incremental updates fopr the
Professional
version isn't a rip-off.  It is making sure their is extra value in purchasing a
license.
Those Professional version payments allow Malwarebytes to keep a free version as
a viable
option.

What would be a rip-off is if Malwarebytes took a capability away from the free
version.

What is an "OT program" ?

That's a very general definition. But most associate incremental as one
that is small in size. In fact, someone ask about the "new incremental"
feature in their forum; wanted to know the size of the downloads now.

 I used to have a real problem with Avira when I was using it on dial
up, because of your definition method, everytime the auto updater was a
size of over 2MB, the server would become overloaded and I would then
have to manually download a 29+MB update.  You can imagine what a pita
that was.

Have had no such problems since switching to Avast 2years ago.

It is when you can do the same with the windows scheduler and another
freeware app to push the buttons for you.

Why would that be a rip-off?  They don't have to provide anything for

 Spyware Terminator, I've been using it since it came off the Spyware
Alert list. Updates daily, scans automatically and provides real time
protection, and as far as the ads go, I never see one unless I open the
program for some reason; otherwise I don't even know it's there until
some app attempts a strange behavior that it blocks. I have the Hips
turned off because it became very anoying with the frequent popups.

Hi Zo...

Malwarebytes hasn't been around for 6 or 7 years yet. Just speaking as
another former employee.
