Manually update Malwarebytes leads to time-out

Recommended Posts

As can be seen from the log, does the automatic update is not reliable.

With a manual update comes following message:

"An error has occurred, please pass on the problem of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware support team, including all error messages and error codes.


The error seems to occur even longer through the automatic update but I noticed he was only yesterday when I tried a manual update.

In addition, the automatic updates work even, but not, unfortunately, as it should be.

Thank you in advance for help.
