Database update required - Virus?

Recommended Posts



I recently removed my virus protection and tried an alternative and then switched back.  Following this point I keep receiving a pop up from malware bytes telling me to update my database and the pop up is extremely persistent and seems out of the norm.  When I open the software an update request dominates the console but if I run a scan on the software the pop up disappears for a while as does the console message.  


I have run the FRST64 scan and attached the files.


Could you look at the files please and advise?

Hello Mbeal44 and welcome to Malwarebytes forum.


This tool will collect some information on the installation of Malwarebytes and create a report I need to review:
Download mbam-check.exe and save it to your desktop    from  http://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbam_check
On Vista/Windows 7, 8, Right-click on mbam-check.exe & select Run as Administrator & allow to Run.
On XP,Double-click on mbam-check.exe to run it.
It should then open a log file CheckResults.txt
You should attach the CheckResults.txt file located on your desktop so that I can review.
