Hi RV, forgive me but for what reason to alert new updates.

MBAM updates so many times a day is already at data base 6091 at this time of posting 4pm cst.

Paid version and always about 6MB would hurt dial up users, my Hughes FAP is 475MB in 24 hours, exceed then I suffer 24 hours at dial up.

Please help me with e-mails to MBAM for updates to be only what's new in this crazy world.

Why the entire data base of 6MB when only less than 100KB was needed for an update.

NIS (Norton) and Spyware Doctor has done that for a couple years.
