Hello,

If you have the latest update, restart the program and if that does not resolve the issue go ahead and do a reboot.

Hello,

Thanks for replying. I have restarted my computer 3 times and clicked the check for updates button for Malewarebytes in the system tray. I am still at package version 1.0.11788 when I hear there is a new version 1.0.11789 out that I do not have...

I have figured this out. I hope the staff on this site can also use this to help others.
You have to click "install application updates" clicking update like for me doesn't do the trick.

You can go to the dashboard tab, and at the bottom right click the "current" where it says Updates: current to manually check for updates.

Holy freakin' gods! Heart attack city: I was in the midst of posting on facebook this afternoon about, of all things, Russian hacking of the election -- and suddenly mbam goes berserk with alerts about malware connections from firefox. Well over 100 of them, many of them looking like legit sites (google ads) but many domains I'd never heard of. Srsly, I'm posting about Russian hacking and what, they're hacking my PC as I type?!? Sheeeee-it!

I did restart firefox and check mbam for an update, which there just happened to be one, and that stopped the flood of alerts. Whew, glad to see it wasn't just me. Really bad timing to have a freak out, mbam guys! :)

However, it did point out a feature that would be useful: Ability to view and especially export ALL event reports at once. Trying to look through each individually is super tedious. Thx.

OMG Guys! I saw these posts after running a plethora of adware removal programs. I thought a Chinese company that I had been corresponding with via email had given me a nice little "present". Talk about a heart attack!🤪

But as usual, Malwarebytes was quick off the mark and provides an actual fix within hours!

Constantly impresses with you guys! You should be proud of yourselves! 👍
