update and error occurred

Recommended Posts

I don't think anything is actually wrong but since this is new I wanted to check.

Usually Malwarebytes will notify user that there is an update available and you can either do it then or ignore and do later.

Today I was on PC and I just got a notification that I needed to restart PC (WIN10) to complete an upgrade of Mbytes but I was never shown that one was even available.

When I was done with what I was doing I restarted and had a pop up on the screen after restart that said "an error occurred malware cannot be installed" or something similar. I checked and Mbytes was running fine, says everything is ok but it has definitely been updated as the interface is different.

Since it seems fine I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Version of Mbytes now shows as Premium 4.0.4

I'm not running any other AV.

It just seemed kind of strange.

I am glad that things are fine at the time.   That is good.   I would simply just advise for a follow-up to be sure the pc has the latest definitions.

Start Malwarebytes 4 ,  click on the Settings icon, then navigate to the About tab. There you'll find a Check for updates button that will check for all available updates. If you don't have Malwarebytes 4 open, you can right-click on the "M" logo in your system tray, then select Check for Updates from the slide-out menu.
