Pros:  New interface looks good, detection is good, regular updates.

Cons:  New interface will also drive you insane with pop ups, website protection is all over the place, big red boxy alerts, getting a little heavier on resources, new interface is badly lacking in options you need.

Other Thoughts:  Malwarebytes is a classic example of a simple effective program being ruined by its developers ! In this version 2.01 ?(I am running the premium version) they redesigned the interface, it looks good and that's the only good thing I have to say about it.

One thing I cannot stand is security programs that flash up with big red warnings for something that's not that important. It looks like Malwarebytes have taken a leaf from Super Anti Spyware regarding this. Malwarebytes comes with website protection that seems obsessed with flashing a big red box all f****** day long, what's the big deal that demands so much attention ? Its telling me its blocked a IP number, , Its not caught Malware, I am not infected in anyway , its just blocked a IP number. So why is it flashing with all bells and whistles like someone has just hit the nuke button for, can you turn off these stupid warnings? well kind off !

You can turn them off but by doing so you turn off "all" alerts, that's handy, way to go Malwarebytes. Why in Gods name is it to much to ask to be able to switch website warnings off but please alert me if being attacked or infected. How did that ever get passed testing ?

Malwarebytes seems heavier, its certainly buggier and has froze sometimes or not started correctly, updates seem to be pretty hairy as well. I have also noticed my network slowing down on some sites and Skype is nearly crippled, it may have something to do with programs that use P2P I suspect. The only improvement I can see is that the scan in the background doesn't bog the PC down so much.

Overall I hate the new version that resembles a bad/early beta , it needs more decent options, less eye candy and please, if its the last thing you ever do at MB , kill the f****** pop ups, kill them today..
