Malwarebytes crashes on update

Recommended Posts


I posted a topic asking for help with an issue I was having on July 17th.  Every time I try to update MBAM it crashes.  At the time a moderator told me I may have a possible infection.  I have posted to the malware removal forum an have been cleared of any possible infections.  I am still experiencing the issue of MBAM crashing every time I try to update.  Please advise me on what I need to do next.


Thank You!

Sorry you are still having issues... lets see if we can get to the bottom of it...

Create a Full Crash Dump using Sysinternals Process Explorer:

  • Please download Sysinternals Process Explorer from here and save it to your desktop.
    • Note: If using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then you also need to do the following:
      • Right-click on ProcExp.exe and select Properties
      • Click on the Compatibility tab
      • Under Privilege Level check the box next to Run this program as an administrator
      • Click on Apply then click OK
  • Double-click ProcExp.exe to run it.
  • Once the crash happens, leave the error window open and find mbam.exe in the process list in Process Explorer and right-click on it and hover your mouse over Create Dump and select Create Full Dump...
  • Save the mbam.dmp file to your desktop and close Process Explorer
  • Right-click on the mbam.dmp file you just created and hover your mouse over Send To and select Compressed (zipped) Folder
  • Attach the ZIP file you just created to your next reply if it is small enough. If it isn't then please upload it to a file sharing service such as WeTransfer and provide the download link for the file in your next reply
