Database Update Fail

Recommended Posts

I have database updates scheduled for once a week and they never work.  I get a pop up above the tray with a button to 'Fix' which does nothing when clicked.  If I open Mbam I cannot find a way to update.  See the screenshot and note that 'Fix Now' and 'Update Now' do nothing.  


How do I fix database updates?




PC info: Win8.1 x64 with Mbam Premium

Hello and :welcome: ,

The most common cause of seeing the update button grayed out is being logged in to Windows from a limited user account (LUA).
See here: I'm trying to update but the 'Check for Updates' button is grayed out or unable to be clicked, why?
(The KB topic is for the 1.x version, but the principle still applies to version 2.)
As for the other problems, let's try this first -- please be sure you are logged in to Windows with an Admin account for the MBAM reinstall:
