  1. It worked! After the restart, Malwarebytes successfully downloaded all definition updates. Thanks!
  2. Okay. AVG just popped up a "restart required" notice. So I'm restarting...
  3. Okay. I opened AVG Firewall and reset it from "auto-decide" to "always ask" with regard to Malwarebytes. This should help alleviate the problem.
  4. I do, in fact, use a virtual private network (VPN) to access the internet. This is due to the fact that my local ISP is an open, unsecured Wi-Fi network that is highly vulnerable to all kinds of security breaches, so I use a VPN to encrypt my online traffic. In addition, I have HTTPS Everywhere installed in two of my three web browsers (Google Chrome and Firefox; Microsoft Edge for some reason won't allow me to install it). How do I enter my VPN's credentials into Malwarebytes?
  5. So what are the most common causes of the program not downloading and installing definitions updates? I have AVG Internet Security and PCMatic (with its SuperShield disabled to prevent interference) on my computer.
  6. I already have Malwarebytes Premium Version 3.3.1.2183 on my Lenovo X200 laptop, but for the past two days, it has failed to download and install any updates to its malware definitions. This is an old problem that has cropped numerous times in the past -- usually just after Malwarebytes releases an updated version of the program. Has a new version of Malwarebytes Premium been released since Version 3.3.1.2183? Or do I have to perform a U&R of my existing program? The "Check for Updates" button doesn't specify whether the check includes one for newer versions of the program itself.
  7. I have Malwarebytes Premium Version 3.3.1 on my Lenovo ThinkPad X220 laptop. I have the same issue with Real-Time Protection, with one difference: When I click to turn RTP on, it shows "Starting" then almost immediately turns itself off. No matter how many times I click on RTP to turn it on, it turns itself off almost immediately. I have no idea why this keeps happening, but it's annoying me to no end. In addition to Malwarebytes Premium, I have AVG Internet Securtity and, of course, Windows 10's built-in Windows Defender. But neither should interfere with MB. This problem has cropp
  8. Did that several times, to no avail. Now I have the added problem of Malwarebytes not downloading updates.
  9. This appears to be a fairly widespread problem among users of Malwarebytes Premium, irrespective of which version they're using. In the Version 3.2.2 that I have loaded on my computer, it's the same old problem: The Real-Time Web protection feature will not start. This problem cropped up after I updated to the latest version of Windows 10. In addition to Malwarebytes, I have AVG Internet Security Version 17.7.3032 and Webroot SecureAnywhere Version 9.0.18.38, as well as the built-in Windows Defender Antivirus. I am well aware of the fact that many computer experts say one should not have
  10. Unfortunately, I had to reinstall Windows 10 in order to replace the corrupt file that kept triggering my laptop's repeated BSOD crashes. The file was in the OS itself, but I was unable to identify it -- let alone isolate and fix it.
  11. I'm not that tech-savvy. I don't know how to zip files, so the the following info gathered by the Sysnative BSOD Collection App has been loaded as individual .txt files. My apologies. Hopefully, this will not be a problem for you.

  12. I'm having a problem when I try to install the latest updated version of Malwarebytes 3. Every time I try to install it -- even in Safe Mode -- it triggers a BSOD crash (Kernel Security Check Failure). I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Tablet, with Windows 10 Professional 64-bit. Here is the relevant crash info, as compiled by WhoCrashed: * * * Crash dump directory: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump Crash dumps are enabled on your computer.

  14. I'm having an issue with installing the latest Malwarebytes 3 update. Every time I attempt to install it, my laptop -- a Lenovo ThinkPad X220 which runs on Windows 10 -- displays the dreaded "blue screen of death," with the explanation, "Kernel Security Check Failure" before it automatically reboots. I am baffled by this. How to I fix this problem?
