licence activation network adaptor error

Recommended Posts

Hi I purchased malwarebytes premium but when i try to activate the liscence key automatically it does not load,

and when i try to do it manually with my code then i get an error saying i must check my adaptor network settings.

help because i cannot use malware bytes.

i read a similar complaint and the reply said to edit the hosts file.

i think i found the host file but i cant seem to open it with wordpad or notepad.

when i click on "open with" nothing loads.

what do i do?

Greetings,

Please do the following so that we may take a look at what's going on with your Malwarebytes installation and hopefully it will reveal what the cause of the problem is so that we may provide instructions on how to fix it:

  1. Download and run the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Accept the EULA and click Advanced tab on the left (not Start Repair)
  3. Click the Gather Logs button, and once it completes, attach the zip file it creates on your desktop to your next reply

Thanks

Did you click the Gather Logs button?  If so then it should have created a new ZIP folder/file on your desktop called mbst-grab-results.zip.  Please attach that to your next reply so that we can take a look.

Thanks

Thanks for the logs.  The only items I saw that might be related are Spyshelter, some remnants of AVG as well as Bitdefender.  Any of those could be responsible for preventing access to the Malwarebytes license activation servers so either exclusions should be created or they should be disabled or removed, at least temporarily to see if Malwarebytes is then allowed to activate.

OK, please run the support tool again and use the repair option to see if that corrects it, if not, then please run it once more and collect a fresh set of logs and attach the resulting ZIP file so that we may take a look at what's going on.

Thanks
