Interesting read from the MB forum. I especially liked the penultimate paragraph.

Are you not aware that MS has had to pull the Oct. update ?

Norton Security has occasionally popped up to warn me that a website was unsafe and in the 8yrs that I've been online, I have yet to be infected.

The 1809 October upgrade was not an automatic update. Those that got affected had manually updated.

Where did you get your info from that it wasn't going to be generally rolled out ?

I got my 1809 after doing a manual check for updates where it came down the line, so I think it was safe to assume that I would have gotten it naturally at some point in time had it not been found to be defective and pulled.

Am I missing Cantrel`s point here?

I updated to 1809 via a manual check, download and installation which caused no problems on my laptop whatsoever.

My interpretation of Cantrel`s comment is that Windwos10 is saying "MB is not all it`s cracked up to be" or does he mean the Windows 10 upgrade. Fine for me, however.

What do you mean by stating the above in regard to the context of this thread?

Perhaps I misinterpreted this post as regards Win 10 updates ?

At last. Light at the end of the tunnel with nothing to do with MB then.

So from the posts so far, the majority of replies are from owners of paid for versions of MWB, and a thumbs up.

I found the info interesting that this was a gentleman who decided to write some software to solve a problem he was having problems with and like Topsy it grew into MWB. I think it was very laudable that he didn't go straight to a paid for version and gives everyone the chance to try out at least the workings of tracking c--p that's got into your computer.
Perhaps I should support that largesse, by giving an annual subscription, or maybe a full paid for version, seeing as I use ad blockers. How much is it annually?

Have a look at https://www.malwarebytes.com/pricing/ where you can see it costs 29.99 for MB Premium for You.

This one replaces antivirus albeit I run MB Premium alongside Avast Free Antivirus without any problems or conflicts.
