I'm at work right now using my work computer and I didn't have time to get on the forum site from home. I always have to close the pop up box that is always on my screen every morning letting me know a new version of Malwarebytes is available (it pops up all the time and I hate it! does this while I'm using my computer and wish it would stop!) I click it off and another box pops up to let me know that a scan has been run and no threats. This morning the scan box wasn't there for me to click off which worried me. I then try to open Malwarebytes and it won't open no matter how many times I click onto it. I assume I've gotten some virus that is now affecting Malwarebytes which shouldn't happen but has. So why am I paying for Malwarebytes anti-virus that clearly isn't stopping the virus and has now prevented Malwarebytes to open? Isn't this what Malwarebytes if for? How can I get it to open on my home computer so that I can run a scan and get rid of the virus? Oh, and is there a way to keep that annoying "new version" of Malwarebytes pop up box from popping up every 20 minutes?

Hello and Welcome...

I am assuming your asking about your home computer, is so continue on with the instructions below (if this is your work computer contact your admin for an upgrade)

The popup is asking you to update to the latest version... Are you not wanting to update to the latest version?  Since your Malwarebytes is having problems opening, then I suggest you go and simply download the latest version and install it right over the top of the existing version.  This should correct the issue with it not opening and getting rid of the New Version message (at least till another version comes out).

Download the Latest MB3 v3.5.1.2522 CU 1.0.391 from ->>RIGHT HERE<<-
