Can't install MBAM3


Recommended Posts

Same as last time, gets to the end of the Install and I get the following error message:

 

HKEY_Classes_Root/malwarebytes

RegCreateKeyEx failed; code 1450.

 

What is wrong with the install, please. I had Firefox close. It should install the Free version so I can put in my license key.

Can you try installing the latest 3.2.2.2029 over your existing product and let me know if that worked.

Just download the latest installer from : https://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mb3

Run the installer on top of your existing product. No need to uninstall.

Previous product has been uninstalled. Chameleon spat the dummy with the same error message. I believe it is something in the Install process. Using Regedit appears to be the only way I know of to fix this issue. I have to wait till Wed next week for my ISP Support to have a go, I'm not gunna play with Regedit. I have the details on how it's done but don't feel confident enough to try it w/o damaging my Registry.

I called Telstra Platinum (subscriber) here in Australia and they fixed the problem. They gave me the following notes:

Got a registry error when installing Malwarebytes.
Insufficient system resources.
Can't boot in safemode via MSCONFIG due to insufficient system resources.
http://www.migrate2iaas.com/node/10683 << attempting fix.
Worked.
Installed Malwarebytes.
Will not open now.
Running Malwarebytes Chameleon to try to fix the issue.
Insufficient system resources again.
Regedit - changed value from 60 to 90.
Booted into safe mode.
Still not working - same error.
Changed value from 90 to 120.
Booted into normal mode.
Issue now fixed.

The link there details how and where to change the setting using Regedit.....)

I have a solution to the problems I experienced trying to activate MBAM.

The Microsoft technical person said it is most likely Windows 7 that has been corrupted on my PC and thus the error msgs (as above). He said that the solution was to install a new copy of Windows 7, a clean copy and THEN try to activate MBAM (Premium).

I came up with another solution.

I had been unable to successfully install Windows Updates automatically, no matter when I tried it. Then, I hit on the idea of choosing to install ONE update at a time manually. I did this several times over the past week as new Updates appeared. Each time these individual Updates were successfully installed. I got to the point where no new Updates were available...and then yesterday decided,  ok,  maybe I can install MBAM now.

It worked. MBAM successfully installed.

I ran a full scan and it picked up 2 threats (PUPs) that it placed in Quarantine. The Windows anti-viral software could not see these.

So now.....it's all good! :)
