  1. I have exact same problem. I have "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)" located on another drive using symbolic link. Those are the two symbolic links that I have created. Malwarebytes was working fine using these symbolic links until I upgraded to 2.0. The upgrade processes was successful, but afterwards Malwarebytes fails exactly like described in the first post. As a professional tester who's worked at MS for over a decade, it would be nice if Malwarebytes could repro the issue by creating a symbolic link to another drive for "C:\Program Files (x86)" and "C:\Program Files" so they have a better technical understanding why this is failing after a successful installation of Malwarebytes 2.0. I could speculate why I think its failing, but I think it best for the dev & test team to investigate the failure, and either fix it, or officially state that symbolic links are not supported. A good justification for understanding why Malwarebytes is failing is so dev teams knows there is no security risk involving symbolic links. Since Malwarebytes is failing for reasons unknown related to symbolic links, its opportunity for an exploit to be discovered.
  2. Several of those errors have already been resolved and are nolonger a concern, and were not a result of virus infection. At this time I am only concerned with any error that preventing Malwarebyes from operating. What does malwarebye error 1812 mean? Thanks
  3. Thanks I will do that What does error 1812 mean? If I have a basic understanding of what might be wrong, I might be able to figure out why its not working on my system.
  4. Thanks, I followed the directions but, unfortunately I am now getting a similar error with a different error code: 1812
  5. Today I purchased the premium edition and I am getting this error: --------------------------- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware --------------------------- SDKDatabaseLoadDefaults failed with code: 2 --------------------------- OK --------------------------- See attached image Version (downloaded today) I've noticed that it keeps downloading the database because it thinks there is no database installed. It downloads the database without errors, but continues report a scan error "SDKDatabaseLoadDefaults failed". Plus the website protection is disabled. I found this topic, but its closed as having been resolved as fixed: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=142302 I've uninstalled\re-installed, Rebooted, and tried various other trouble shooting efforts, but have yet to find a solution. Win7 Ultimate with all required updates. No other malware or virus protection installed. System very clean, recently installed OS less than a week ago.
