AboutBuster Database corrupted or missing?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've downloaded AboutBuster from the malwarebytes.org site, and am attempting to launch it, but I keep getting a message stating that the Database is corrupted or missing. Any ideas? Is this related to the virus (Coolwwwsearch) I am trying to rid my computer of?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

SRM

Hello jwbirdsong

Thank you for your response. I have done what you've suggested but I am still getting the same error popup.

I have just clicked on the EXE file for another try and got this file added into the same folder - AboutBuster.exe.manifest. ???

Have you tried a fresh download?? It's possible something was corrupted during download. I suguest you delete everything in the BUSTER (or whatever name you chose) folder and grab a fresh download and try again. Sometimes it's just stubborn. :D

PS I will be out of town till Sun..if you are still having probs someone else will pick up this thread I'm sure. (AHEM...)

The error started from the first download which was not into a specific folder. I moved the files according to your suggestion. I then deleted the files for redownloading and tried. Did this process a few times. All this while I never reached the scan mode!

My OS is in English though I have checked for other Asian languages as well.

Yes, the error 5 popped up everything I clicked on the EXE file.

I hava actually downloaded from your site as well and with the same result and I have done it again as you've just suggested, once on desktop and other in drive C. Same error.
