I asked before I posted here and they said screenshots were fine as long as no download link was provided and no license information.

Some people just find it impossible to keep there mouths shut ::)

Yep, quite sad. :(

And that children is why avast went straight to a public beta and not a pre-public beta as in the past.  ;D

Ahhh...but you did mention license information in your first post.  ::)

Now you say Pro license is for lifetime but, craigb says it will be annual.
Which is it?  ???

The license information meant username and password for the trial.

Malwarebytes 2.0 license will be annual from now BUT

... Malwarebytes will continue to honor existing lifetime licenses, meaning any users that already have a lifetime license for 1.x will continue to have a lifetime license for 2.x. On top of all of that, new subscription licenses will be valid for 3 PCs, not just 1. (v2.0)

Something else is that the new website scanning technology will only work on Vista SP1 and above, the technology used in 1.75 ( current version ) is used on earlier systems.

Links were only supplied to honorary and above members but I don't think it will take long before public access is given.

However, can you install v2 on XP?

I don't like what I have seen so far of the interface, that's one thing I liked about Malwarebytes was it was easy to understand especially for those not as tech savvy such as my parents.

It's still simple to understand, I think it's actually easier.

Vaguely like the old avast 8 interface, Tabs/Menu item areas and a Left column for detail headings. That was pretty easy to navigate, unlike the avast 9 UI.
