Recommended Posts

This download link has apparently not yet been whitelisted.

Download blocked:


VirusTotal scan for file in question,


came up clean. Previous version downloads were unaffected. Their user forum recommended contacting/informing Malwarebytes for a remedy. Was able to ultimately, successfully download by temporarily disabling both Malwarebytes app and Firefox extension. Further scanning with Windows Defender/Malwarebytes on the executable file also gave it a green light.

Windows 10 Pro Version 1903, Build 18362.592, 16GB DDR4, Intel HD Graphics 530.

Malwarebytes' FireFox extension is current. Installed Malwarebytes version is, Update package version 1.0.20902, Component package version 1.0.835

The first one has now been whitelisted.  Sorry for the delay.  Give it a few minutes to propagate out, and please let us know if you continue to have issues.  I was as unsure of what to whitelist as you were to report.  I went for #1.
