Showing Out of Date for Updates

Recommended Posts


I am still having issues updating my MalwareBytes. I have attempted the fix posted by dcollins to no avail.

I also downloaded the installer from dbudrow's post and did an uninstall/reinstall.

My dashboard is still showing that it is out of date and needs updated.

Malwarebytes version:

Component package version: 1.0.96

Update package version: 1.0.1622


Attached are the logs after the reinstall.
