After the release of Malwarebytes 3.0 and the merging of the company’s products into a single app, the company has dealt with various issues such as stability problems, high memory usage, and functionality issues. The Malwarebytes 3.2 beta was recently released and promises a few improvements such as better memory usage, but in the end it just wasn’t enough.
Malwarebytes 3.2 improvements
With this beta version, memory usage has been improved. For instance, MBAMSrvice.exe drops below the 200,000 K mark on 64-bit versions of Windows. Still, Malwarebytes remains a large program since it runs three operations on Windows devices.
The software’s developers have managed to fix a few stability issues in this new version as well, including hangups and crashes related to the service, tray app, and the UI.
Automatically receive the beta versions of the app
Malwarebytes added the option to download and install the beta versions automatically. Until now, interested users had to download and install these updates manually.
While it’s not always the greatest idea to install beta software on production systems, if you’re really interested in the cutting edge and if you don’t mind running into a bug or two every once in a while, this is a good option. It is also useful to test the new versions of security software early before deploying them on the production systems.
The new option can be found under Settings – Application – Beta Application Updates. Click on the Install application updates button in the UI and the download will begin. You will then be able to install all the new components.
