    You have much to learn in the antimalware community if you think my
    "mouthing" off causes people not to view me as an expert. Fact is, I
    *am* exactly what I said I was, and I believe you owe me an apology for
    the janitor comment.
    I didn't do any interview for malwarebytes. They shot me an email one
    afternoon, it progressed from there.
    Again, I didn't provide malwarebytes any resume. I didn't even know a
    job was available. :)
    I found the real comedy in you suggesting that an engine update wasn't
    necessary, just continue updating definitions only. I found that so
    funny because I actually know whats involved in the definitions and
    that some stuff just isn't made public in so far as engine updates.

    You at that point got all cheeky with me. Wasn't necessary. You were
    talking from your ass. You're an end user. I was with the company.
    My delivery method has nothing to do with my expertise. Fact is, I am
    an expert in this field. Your dislike of me due to the way I come
    across on usenet has no bearing.
    Not professed, as you've been educated. You owe me an apology for your
    smartass banter.
    You didn't prick my ego, You attempted to talk down to me or otherwise
    belittle what I wrote to you initially. Hence your MID wiseass remark
    with regard to the client I use. You just really fucked up there.

    You started the insults, not me. Who started the insulting isn't lost
    on anyone else reading this now way off-topic subthread. You got in
    return the attitude you gave. If you don't like getting it tossed back
    at you then don't toss it in the first place. Excuses of "that is who I
    am" means "that's what you'll get back".

    At this point, and to save your serentity, it's best we not participate
    in the same [sub]thread by ignoring each other and to eliminate the
    noise ensued by use of your "style" in your replies.

    Bye bye.

    You miss the point, I suspect. You were giving bad advice. While you
    certainly did come back at me with a snarky attitude, it still didn't
    make any difference. The real point, or issue isn't an attitude. It's
    information, or in your case, inaccurate information.
    I'd suggest next time you decide to ask someone to prove their
    "claims", you pick targets who are unable to do so. I typically do
    ignore you, as most of the time, you are talking from your ass on
    technical matters. You have a general concept, but you lose the plot
    from there. I'm just not that great with ignoring people who give bad
    advice which could place a false sense of security in someones head, or

    If you wish to refrain from further discussions with me, either don't
    post on things you aren't 100% sure on, or do and take your chances.

    Please excuse my hijack, but I was under the impression that clicking
    the MBAM update tab options was enough to fully update MBAM. Your
    response implies that an engine update and definition update are
    separate tasks. Should I be downloading and installing MBAM anew with
    each version update?

    Hello M.L.

    Do you have the paid PRO version or the freeware version?

    MBAM can tell you a new version is available and ask for permission to
    get it. You can tell it no and get the updates only. This shouldn't be
    confused as Vanguard did as to imply nor mean that ignoring engine
    updates is okay.

    "Since the vast majority (almost all) of the updates apply only against the Pro (paid)
    version, there isn't much point in updating if you're using the free version."

    Which was WRONG. :-(

    Quick question about MBAM. I've been using it for a while, but don't always
    go to download the newest version. Should I be doing that every time I get
    ready to run MBAM? thanks.

  10. Not unless the program notifies you of a nedw version OR you use it so infrequently that
    what is on the PC is out-of-date.

    Freeware version.

    Still, I'd do a "Check for Updates" anyway because you are bound to
    download a new database file. Yes?
