Malwarebytes 3.0.5 Patch Release - Unable to upgrade

Recommended Posts

Try going to the Protection submenu and then disable both "Enabled self-protection module early start" and "Enabled self-protection module" and then run the 3.0.5 installer again.

If that doesn't help, you could try renaming MWACControllerImpl.dll (shown in your screenshot) to MWACControllerImpl.old. The dll file is located in C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware. The self-protection module will need to be disabled for that too.

The error shown in your screenshot is similar to the one shown in the following article where Mbam 3.0 couldn't be installed due to mbae64.sys causing an "Access Denied" error. http://techdows.com/2016/12/fix-malwarebytes-3-0-installation-mbae64-sys-error.html

Hopefully MBAM developers will solve this in one of their next releases..?

Suppose that "Install Applications Updates" should work wtihout this 'workaround'.

MBAM v3.04 Free - "no updates are available"




Try using the Dashboard to check for updates by clicking the icon I've indicated with the red arrow in the screenshot.
