Greetings,

I would suggest first making certain that you copy and paste your ID and Key into the fields provided rather than typing them if you haven't tried that already.  Also be aware that now that Malwarebytes 3 is available and is using the new license key format, you will need to enter your ID and Key in reverse order with the first field provided being for the longer Key string and the second field below it being for the first/shorter ID string.

If that didn't resolve the issue then please contact Malwarebytes Support directly and they will assist you further with this.  You may contact them via the options available on this page.

If there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

Yes have used Mbam for many years. Apparently switching the longer Key in the top for ID and the ID below for Key doesn't work as this does not envoke the green check marks so the Avtivate Box is greyed outl

THis is the first time I've had trouble activating product after reinstall.

It could be an issue with the license validation system.  The Malwarebytes Support team has direct access to that system so they should be able to determine what's going on with your license and get the problem corrected.

Even our support tool is being blocked from network access. My guess is that the firewall or process engine from your Trend Micro Maximum Security is blocking Malwarebytes.

Can you please temporarily disable Trend Micro Maximum Security including Firewall and then run Malwarebytes again and check for updates. Then see if you're able to activate too.

?Thanks for your time, I had suspicions....those buggers

 

No Luck. Even exiting Trend completely doesn't resolve issue. Don't see how Tech support will be able to help

Okay, let me have you run the following and post back the logs

 

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.
You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply as well.

Different ways to try and address the issues. Though a little time consuming, if it were my computer I'd start with fully uninstalling Trend Micro temporarily. Reboot. Then check Event Logs and see if any of these errors are still happening.

  1. I uninstalled, cleaned everything up and installed Avast (Been with Avast since 2002). TM was an investigation/Trial

No issues now.

Thanks again
