"Check For Update" button doesn't work

Recommended Posts

I upgraded one machine to the new Malwarebytes Premium 3.2.2 software, but the "Check For Update" button does not work.

However, I did not upgrade on a different machine still using the older version of Malwarebytes, and the "Check For Update" button works ok.

How can I get the "Check for Update" button working on the newer Malwarebyte 3.2.2 version?

That is not the current version.

Let us get a clean install of the current version. 3.3.1

 

We have another tool called MB-Clean which will automate the whole process for you.

 

The clean removal tool will backup your license information and then re-enter the license to the new install.

  Tool can be found at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb_clean

 

1. After downloading the tool run the tool.

2. The tool will automatically clean up the older possibly damaged installation and will ask you for a restart.

3. Restart your system and then the MB-Clean tool will prompt you to re-install the latest product.

4. Click on "Yes" to reinstall MB 3.×.

5. Now you will have the latest product installed.

 If it does not offer the new install after the reboot you can download and install from here.

Thank you Porthos.

The version was definitely 3.2.2.

With a large button in the middle of the page.

I followed your instruction and the program re-loaded at 3.2.1

The large click button is now gone, but the smaller check update language on the right seems to work.

I think the update works now.

But have now developed another problem, Exploit Protection will not check on.

I saw other's are also having this same problem, with switching on the Exploit Protection, so I added my entry to an already existing subject.

Hello Porthos

I excluded the first 14 from the list under the Norton Sonar Protection.

Works perfect now.

I didn't need to do anything, the Exploit Protect checked on by it's self.

Didn't need to exclude the last 2.

Everything seems to be back at 100% now.

Thank you so very much, , ,
