Upgrade to Malwarebytes 3 from Malwarebytes 2.2.1

Its high-time for Malwarebytes 2.2.1 users to upgrade to Malwarebytes 3.x as latter’s GA date already passed 7 months, Malwarebytes made it clear they won’t guarantee to deliver protection updates when product reaches End of Life which is the case with MBAM  2.2.1.
