Error 404104 + Account help


Recommended Posts


1.  Since today I cannot use Privacy VPN, since upon connecting it gives error code: 404104.

2. I try to submit a support ticket, but I think something is wrong. Both possible subscription email adresses, which I tried upon creating a support ticket, both come back  to 1 email adress. The ticket immediately gets closed and I am unable to contact you through a ticket.

I hope you can both help me getting Privacy VPN back working again and resolve the account issue, where trying 2 emailadresses get answered to 1 and the same email adress stating that there is no subscription known and tickets get closed.
(when logging in on the website, I can see my subscription active).

Kind regards.

Ps. I runned the Support Tool and tried to repair the software with this tool too. It didn't help. 

Please do the following so that we may take a closer look at your installation for troubleshooting:

  • In the User Account Control pop-up window, click Yes to continue the installation

  • In the Advanced Options, click Gather Logs. A status diagram displays the tool is Getting logs from your machine

We don't need the logs. What you posted shows some type of license issue. Please open a support ticket and someone will assist you further. @PietK

Thank you


Thank you for the quick look! Apreciated!

The point is tho, I can not make a support ticket. When I do this, I get the following email:



Thank you for contacting Malwarebytes support, we're unable to locate a subscription with the email provided. If another email address was used to purchase your subscription, please submit a new ticket with that email address.


I am using the email adress that works on the website and shows my active subscription when logged in. 

Although, I think there has been a mix-up of some sort, where I bought a new subscripting using my 2nd email adress, and then merged the license in the 1st email adress account.


Bottom line; I cannot make a new support ticket, it gets automatically closed immediately. There is no way for me to contact support, other than this forum thread.


Maybe a member of support can DM me here, or use the public license key to manually start a ticket with me? I am not able to start anything at this moment.
