  1. Hey TechSpot,

    Just wondering, what is (if any) the difference between mbam rules and mbam setup? I want the latest version of Malwarebytes anti-malware and I've come across both of the aforementioned. Not sure which one to pick. Any advice would be most appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    jag

    Looks like the 'rules' are the updates auto vs manual offline.

    Setup is the download of the program.

    You can find additional info in Google search..

    To run current:

    My Guidelines: please read and follow:
    • Be patient. Malware cleaning takes time and I am also working with other members while I am helping you.
    • Read my instructions carefully. If you don't understand or have a problem, ask me.
    • If you have questions, or if a program doesn't work, stop and tell me about it. Don't try to get around it yourself.
    • Follow the order of the tasks I give you. Order is crucial in cleaning process.
    • File sharing programs should be uninstalled or disabled during the cleaning process..
    • Observe these:
      [o] Don't use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you.
      [o] Don't use a Registry cleaner or make any changes in the Registry.
      [o] Don't download and install new programs- except those I give you.
    • Please let me know if there is any change in the system.
    If I don't get a reply from you in 5 days, the thread will be closed. If your problem persist, you can send a PM to reopen it.
