  1. There is no corporate 3.0 at this time, it is only for home/consumers. The corporate next gen build is slated for later in the year, no release date has been announced. The current business version of Anti-Malware is
  2. If you have a next gen firewall, content filter, proxies, etc, those URL's need to be explicitly whitelisted on them. It is not the resolution of the address that is usually blocked, it is usually because of SSL packet inspection. Additionally, you are not using the correct software for a business environment, you are using a consumer product. This makes it quite difficult to manage thousands of installs as the consumer product has no provisions in it to be remotely or centrally managed like the proper business versions. Not to mention using the consumer product in a business environment is a violation of the EULA.
  3. Hi ajwh, I went to post the link but the download behind it is changing, a new console release just happened during our conversation. Console - What you need to know about upgrading to console -
  4. Open services.msc on the endpoint and scroll to the M's for MEEClientService, try and start it up, once running the machine should check-in.
  5. We're not able to share just yet, but hang tight! It will be coming up soon here. If you want to see what's upcoming for the next gen console first hand, you can sign up for the Incident Response beta here:
  6. I will need information from the computer. From this machine, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Managed Client and run the tool CollectClientLog.exe. Attach the folder it generates.
  7. I got you, here's a more detailed breakdown. Managed installs communicate to the server via a service called MEEClientService in services.msc. The process associated with that is called sccomm.exe. If this is not running, client/server communication is not possible. If sccomm.exe's actions are being blocked by one of your other security program's realtime engine, the symptoms can be similar but the service will actually still be running. Anti-Malware realtime is "MBAMService" via mbamservice.exe, its scheduler function runs using "MBAMScheduler" / mbamscheduler.exe. Anti-Exploit realtime is "Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit service" via mbae-svc.exe. Anti-Ransomware runs using the MB3Service, the MBARW product is unmanaged at this time and is inconsequential to server/client communication. Here's a screenshot from one of my vm's, compare this to your running processes/services.
  8. Is your MEEClientService running on those endpoints?
  9. The registration failure error is not a show stopper, your install should be fine. The client did not check back into the server within a set hardcoded timeframe. It could be because of firewall, network speed and another security product interfering with our communication. Check on that endpoint to see if MEEClientService is running, if not, start it. Workgroup machines also need to have the installation done through the default Windows Administrator account, make sure that is the credentials you are using to deploy to those machines, not a domain account.
  10. Hi Brent, for stubborn browser hijack pups, use ADWCleaner.
  11. You're welcome James, I'm happy to help!
  12. Make sure the ignore path for mbam.exe and mbamservice.exe in your Microsoft product is pointing to the correct location on all endpoints. The fix is whitelisting Malwarebytes' processes in your Microsoft product, there is nothing we can change within our application to stop MsMpEng.exe's interference.
  13. It does not work this way for Anti-Malware or the Managed Client communicator, unfortunately. When there are updates for those portions of the agent software, they'll be paired with a console upgrade, and from there, available within the built-in push tool or the offline package creator for use with third party deployment, like your PDQ. For including upgrade steps in the Admin guide, I'll bring that request to the technical writers and see if we can get that in there!
  14. Console upgrade instructions can be found on our KB portal:
  15. The MBAE package that the console pushes out gets updated when new console versions are released. Right now for console, the highest MBAE installer is To upgrade MBAE outside of that you would use the auto-upgrade MBAE option in your policy, which is what would normally get you to the latest, You can also complete this by forcing it on those machines using the newer unmanaged MBAE installer (it'll still be console managed after installing), to do so, you can leverage one of the following options: Using the MBAE Standalone MSI Installer to upgrade specific endpoints via Active Directory GPO. Command to execute: “msiexec /i mbae-setup-1.xx.2.xxxx.msi /quiet”. This has the benefit of only upgrading the MBAE agent without having to re-deploy the communications agent and MBAM agents. Using the MBAE Standalone EXE Installer to upgrade specific endpoints Manually: By running the MBAE EXE installer locally on the endpoint (i.e. double-click). Remotely: By running the MBAE EXE installer silently over the network using command-line options and relying on existing deployment tools like SCCM, psexec, etc. (for ex “psexec \\targetcomputer -u DOMAIN\administrator -p mypassword -d\\FILESERVER\Installers\mbae-setup-1.xx.2.xxxx.exe /log /SP- /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES”).TIP: The command "psexec \\*" will execute the installer command on all workstations belonging to the Domain. You can get a hold of the latest MBAE installer by grabbing a new package here: It'll be located in Unmanaged \ Windows \ mbae-setup- in exe or msi.
