Hi,

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes for Windows Help forum.

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following:

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance
  • For use when you don't need or want to create a ticket with Malwarebytes
  • For use when you want to perform local troubleshooting on your own

How to use the Advanced Options:

Spoiler
  1. Download Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Double-click mb-support-X.X.X.XXXX.exe to run the program
    • You may be prompted by User Account Control (UAC) to allow changes to be made to your computer. Click Yes to consent.
  3. Place a checkmark next to Accept License Agreement and click Next
  4. Navigate to the Advanced tab
  5. The Advanced menu page contains four categories:
    • Gather Logs: Collects troubleshooting information from the computer. As part of this process, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) is run to perform a complete diagnosis. The information is saved to a file on the Desktop named mbst-grab-results.zip and can be added as an email attachment or uploaded to a forum post to assist with troubleshooting the issue at hand.
    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.
  6. To provide logs for review click the Gather Logs button
  7. Upon completion, click OK
  8. A file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your Desktop
  9. Please attach the file in your next reply.
  10. To uninstall all Malwarebytes Products, click the Clean button.
  11. Click the Yes button to proceed. 
  12. Save all your work and click OK when you are ready to reboot.
  13. After the reboot, you will have the option to re-install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows.
  14. Select Yes to install Malwarebytes.
  15. Malwarebytes for Windows will open once the installation completes successfully.

Please try changing your DNS temporarily to Google Public DNS

https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using

 

Are you still using the Nord VPN? I'm not sure if it's their driver that put it in but the network connection for WireGuard is quite old at this point.

 

Please do a Clean Removal of both products using our MBST tool.

Uninstall and reinstall Malwarebytes using the Malwarebytes Support Tool

The tool will not automatically reinstall Privacy VPN so once you have MB4 up and running and working, then go ahead and download and reinstall Malwarebytes Privacy

Malwarebytes Privacy offline installer
https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mbprivacy-offline

Then one Malwarebytes Privacy is running go to the Settings and check for updates

Let me know if that corrects the issue or not

Thanks @Ben2

I changed my DNS, but still had an issue activating my license for the reinstall. After I restarted my computer, the error did not show up. I have attached the log file and a screenshot of what happened.

I believe ultimately it is/was due to your DNS entry not finding our license server or finding it but only having partial IPv6 support.

If all is working well now then you shouldn't experience the issue anymore I wouldn't think, but if you do let us know and we can dig in further.

Thank you and have a great week. Stay safe out there @Ben2

Cheers
