Bought program and installed it. Not working

Recommended Posts

I have used malwarebytes before and today paid for the premium version. I downloaded the program and installed it. When I try to run it, it prompts me to update database or skip (the most current databae is installed). I click skip (or update) and nothing happens. Then I get a message the program is not responding. And that is as far as I get.


Any suggestions?

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh - found a fix on this site. Installed a newer version. Tried downloading the newer version - and got message saying download failed - try again or cancel. Tried again with same result. clicked cancel. Then chose "run" rather than save the download. That seems to work and scan is running now.
