Malwarebytes ''Unable to access update server''

Recommended Posts

Okay, I have un-installed malwarebytes using mbam-clean multiple times but after a few hours it would give me this message of ''unable to access update server'' and give me pop ups all the time, im getting a bit annoyed by this because malwarebytes didnt give me any trouble before...  :(

Hello and :welcome: , Mochine:

A couple of easy things to check:

First, please be sure your system date/time are correct.

Also check that your AV and firewall both give MBAM full permissions. It's possible that your AV or firewall might be treating the new build as a new program and may be blocking it -- the files that need to be excluded can be found HERE. Please post back if you need help with that.
Also, please check to be sure there are no "Detected Threats" that need to be dealt with first, as this can prevent the program from updating: Click the "Scan" button at the top of the dashboard and verify that there are no detected threats (especially PUPs or PUMs) awaiting your action.

If those suggestions don't resolve your issue -- if you have already reinstalled using the recommended method, then you might just want to skip to step #2 and post back the logs:
