Far less risk of a bad update toasting your windows installation if you  
don't use MBAM RT module. See here for an example:

http://preview.tinyurl.com/cek4lrd

This isn't the first time it's happened. It's possible it can happen again.  
I really don't know HOW an update like that was ever released to be honest.  
I thought the definition testing issue had already been updated when  
cdrom.sys got nailed by accident years prior to that bad def update.

The RT module will also block "malicious websites", but, sometimes, it's  
got sites on a badlist that shouldn't be; Having them removed individually  
is like asking congress to do something, quickly.

Just use v1.75 until v2.0x series is more stable for an ondemand  
scan/cleanup task. The licensing cost for what you're actually getting  
isn't a good deal at all. Malwarebytes is NOT an AV product and cannot  
compete with them. As they're willingly misleading potential customers now  
with the checkmark certification (it lists antivirus, but Malwarebytes has  
no antivirus abilities)- I really must advice against purchasing the new  
licensing (subscription based) for two reasons:

1) They're allowing clients to be mislead into thinking their application  
has been antivirus certified; I've seen people asking if they really need  
both AV and MBAM since MBAM is antivirus certified according to the  
checkmark certification image on their homepage. I've seen MBAM moderators  
and site admins who fully understand that MBAM is NOT an av product  
COMPLETELY ignore the question concerning viruses. That's shady in my  
opinion. You should be totally honest with regard and tell people flat out,  
your product does NOTHING with an actual virus.

2) The cost of the license is on par with an Antivirus application that has  
millions more definitions, a larger research team that can actually  
read/write code, and is actually able to reverse some of the actual  
viruses/patchers one could come across today. MBAM can only offer you  
detection and deletion. It has no ability to fix a patched file, nor can it  
remove even a simple appending/prepending virus from any infected files.

If you want to spend money to support a company for their hard work,  
Support your favorite AV company; they've got alot more time, experience  
and knowledge in on the subject. Malwarebytes has been playing catchup for  
years and taking advantage of the general stupidity of joe public  
concerning the finer details.

On a smaller scale, yes. It's happened prior to that as well.

since that was introduced.

A borked registry key and/or corrupted file could have done it. Did your  
system incorrectly power down recently?

Says the admitted hacker, admitted copyright pirate, admitted wanted person of interest, admitted person with violent tendencies.

So, if you want to take the advice of a bad man, by all means listen to what "Dustin" says and disable Malwarebytes v2.0.1.  As for me, Dustin is like the fly in Karl Shapiro's poem:  his 'peace' is my 'disaster'.

nothing wrong with being a hacker. Millions of people are proud to be labeled  
pirates. Join us Ray, the force is strong! Wanted person of interest? In what  
fashion? By whom?

violent tendencies? Self defense is a sign of violent tendencies?

You don't need to take my advice at face value; feel free to checkout the  
forums at malwarebytes and view many others opinions/bug reports. I've  
nothing to gain either way by lieing about the product.
