For those using MB all you have to do is click on update and it'll get it and install it.
I'm off to do a scan with this new version.
Thanks WildCat. purr purr

ESET NOD32 is a Anti Virus application, Malwarebytes is a Anti-Malware application (you could download Malwarebytes (free) and use it as a second opinion ... thats what I do

It is fine to use MBAM.

As WildCat pointed, the two programs target different things (viruses and malware). The data base or definitions for the programs are different.

I also use both programs.
