I am running Malwarebytes Premium version 3.7.1. On a Windows 10 Pro desktop machine. Windows update says Windows is up to date.I have a small SSD drive that includes my operating system and my Malwarebytes Premium program folder. There are many ".tmp" in the C:\Program File\Malewarebytes\Anti-Malware folder adding up to more than 15 MB. I am unable to delete any of these files even though none of these files have been accessed since May 2017 according to Windows File Explorer. When I try to delete any of them I get a message that I need administrator permission to delete the files. I am logged on as an administrator yet every time I try to delete any of them I get the same message denying me permission to delete these tmp file from 2017.
I can confirm that the 3.4 beta fixes the update failure which was occurring when Windows TEMP/TMP is on a RAM Drive. (As previously reported in the topic "Update Failure IS because of TEMP on RAM Drive" in Malwarebytes 3, Malwarebytes Forums at https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/206678-update-failure-is-because-of-temp-on-ram-drive/) During installation, the initial "Runtime Error (at ...): Could not call proc" error message still appears but, after that is acknowledged, installation continues with a request for a Windows re-start so that installation can be completed. After restarting, a prompt is issued asking if the user wishes to run a file from an address in the TEMP directory (on RAM drive). When this is agreed to, installation proper begins and proceeds as would have been expected. For me, the process appears to have completed successfully and resulted in an on-top update from MBAM 126.96.36.1993 to MBAM 188.8.131.520 Beta. The process was straightforward and I did not need to tamper with any environment variables at all. My previous settings were all preserved apart from the currently usual need to restore the 'Display Language' to my required value. Thank you for the fix.
