Unable to access update server

Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue with updating my database. I keep getting the error "unable to access update server". I'm currently running windows 10 and I use ESET NOD32 antivirus. I have been using these to in conjunction for a very long time and have never had this issue until now. Can someone please assist on how to get this fixed?

Hello Reaper82:

Thank you for the good news update.


However, is this going to be a continuing thing? If so, am I going to have to uninstall and re-install every time?

If malware has successfully evaded self-protection defenses and altered or corrupted any applications, a re-install is usually the most efficient path to resolution and you would likely wish to re-evaluate your system's protections.  In the case of an MBAM install, you may wish to consider enabling the self-protection module.

Thank you.
