Malwarebytes fails to scan.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

When I try to run a Malwarebytes scan, it continues to fail with error code "SDKDatabaseLoadDefaults failed with code:1812". The scan always fail after the "Pre-Scan Operations" has completed.

I have tried running the Malwarebytes cleaner and reinstalling the program, but that does not help.

The computer is running Windows 7 64-Bit.


Thank you for your help!
