Unable to access update server Malwarebytes Free 2.1.8.1057


Recommended Posts

Windows 7, SP1.

For the past 2 days, when I try to update Malwarebytes, the Database Version blue bar activates but I get message "unable to access update server". Then message changes to v.2015.12.19.04, suggesting that I now have all the current updates. But do I really have the updates?

 

I  saw a similar post where the reply to the user was asked to check system time, reboot, and, if that did not resolve the problem, download and run 2 diagnostic programs and attach the 3 generated files to his reply. I did all this and am attaching the three files hereto. 

 

I hope someone can help resolve this update issue.

Hi:

 

A quick check of your logs shows a TON of items in MBAM quarantine and it looks as if MBAM was last installed back in August.

 

There are some other problems, as well, such as broken Windows Search Service and possible hard disk errors, and some other anomalies:

So, for starters, you may wish to try a clean reinstall/upgrade of MBAM, as per the steps here: MBAM Clean Removal Process 2x.

That might get MBAM back up and running.

Be sure to reboot when prompted by the removal tool, and it's not a bad idea to reboot again after the reinstall, for good measure.

>>>I would definitely do this, though, because you are NOT running the current program version, which is 2.2.0.1024.

 

However, cleanly reinstalling/upgrading MBAM will not fix the other issues with the system.

So, even if MBAM does seem to be working OK after the clean reinstall, you might want to head over to another area of the forum for a deeper look at the system.

The tools needed cannot be used here in this section of the forum.

So, although it's not clear that you are or may have been infected, the other forum is the best place to get some free, expert help checking to be sure.

The helper there can assist with running a check disk, repairing the Windows Search Service, and other problems.

To start the process, I suggest following the steps here: Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers and then posting a FRESH, NEW set of FRST logs in the other forum area.

(When you run FRST again, please place a checkmark in the "Addition.txt" option before running it, so that it will produce both logs.)

 

Thanks,
