Recommended Posts

Hi, New member to this forum. My problem is that l am unable to update Malwarebytes, and it keeps popping up with the message error code: 732 (12029,0). can anyone help me please.

I HAVE THE SAME EXACT PROBLEM!..I was going to make a new thread but to save time/eyeballs I will add it here.

I have re-installed, re-started my PC, all to no avail, and keep getting the same message when I want to install.

Initially I had the AntiVirus Pro Malware virus then got rid of it, then when I re-installed Malwarebytes, the Above error code kept appearing.

How can We fix this Problem and get it Working again?! Please help US!!

Thank you. Here's my message when I try to run it:

"An error occurred. Please report the following error code to the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Support team: Error Code: 732 (12029,0)

Please Help!!

This post by AdvancedSetup seems to cover many of the issues that you mention -

Please read it and take the actions stated in the post #4 - You will find that this repairs many problems with reinstalling -

There is also a FAQ over the top of this section that may help -

Please post back if the problems persist - :)

Hi exile360, Thank you for your response, l have followed #8 of the FAQ but still no joy, and have excluded Malwarebytes from AVG and windows xp firewall. The link you gave me regarding changing the Automatically detect settings l have tried this last night still no joy on this. :)

Hi All,

Just wanted to say thank you for all your help and support l have managed to fix the problem, ir seems that this was a problem with IE8, because use FireFox most of the time l hadn't notice that IE8 was not connecting to the web, but for some strange reason FireFox was ok. Anyway l got IE8 up and running again and was able to download updates for Malwarebytes and no error message. :)

Merit if you are having the same problem as l described l suggest you do a full rest of IE8. This is was done it for me.

exile,

I have attempted to follow the instructions in that post #4 that you linked to, but to no avail, after re-installing mbabm.exe and first completely removing all components, the same error code shows when I want to update:

732 (12029, 0)

Firstly, am I infected by some sort of hidden virus that my PC isn't catching? AVG scanned my machine and said it was fine, and I did an hijack this, analyzed it, said no dangerous items.

Or is this just some program malfunction that needs to be fixed?

Either way, please help me if you get a chance to do so, I am really disheartened that the program isn't working and bugged at the moment.. thank you

By the way, I read that I should disable my AVG from blocking Malware Antibytes..in so doing they said it might correct the problem...problem is that I don't know how to do that as I'm not very functioning in these types of operations...how would I attempt to unblock it if my AVG is doing so? Anyone care to guide me through?

Please open Internet Explorer if that's not the browser you're already using, and make sure that it connects to the internet. To check, you can navigate to www.microsoft.com.

If it does connect and you can access microsoft.com but still cannot download updates for Malwarebytes' then please contact support@malwarebytes.org as they will have to assist you with more advanced troubleshooting to correct the issue for you.

Thanks :)

Hi, thanks for the reply. Apparently, my MS Internet Explorer does not connect, as there are trouble-shooting problems as well as "add-ons" that are causing commotion. I currently use Firefox.

What can I do from here then? Also, my Firefox has been crashing endlessly as I keep getting the message "We're sorry but Firefox crashed unexpectedly.....restore your tabs..." or something similar to that.

I have AVG, and that seems to be blocking everything, I don't know how to work with this. I can't even do TrendMicro free Housecall Online Virus Scan because of it.

What seems to be the problem? I still cannot update Malwarebytes as that 732 message still shows up.

PLEASE help, this is painfully bugging me for almost 2 weeks now.

Unfortunately it sounds like either the infection messed something up or there is some other issue. If Internet Explorer can't connect to the internet then neither can Malwarebytes' because they use the same settings, meaning if IE is broken, so is MBAM.

Please send an email to support@malwarebytes.org and they will assist you quickly to get your issues resolved. I'd also recommend that in your email to them, that you provide them with a link to this thread so that they can see the steps we've already tried as it will make the troubleshooting process quicker for you.

regarding error code: 732 while trying to update Malwarebytes

This fixed it for me. Go to the proxy settings in IE and remove the checkmark the one of the maliciouswares placedin it !! This will allow both IE to connect again and then Malwarebytes will then update normally.

To get to IE's proxy settings, launch IE, go under the tools menu, select Internet Options, click the Connections Tab, click Lan Settings button, remove checkmark out of "use a proxy server for your lan....."

This should show how to allow MBAM to bypass AVG - Hope it helps - :(

Greetings AJC9 and welcome to Malwarebytes :huh:

If the button is greyed out that means the program is running on a Standard user account and requires administrative privelages. To get the update to work please exit Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and then righ-click the shortcut to Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware located on your desktop or under Start vista-7-start.png>All Programs>Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and select Run as administrator. You should then be able to click on the Check for Updates button and retrieve the latest definitions.

Should you require anything further please post.

Thanks :)

Unable to update.

When I click on Update tab, the "Check for Updates" box is grayed out.

I have both Firefox and IE open.

Using Windows 7.

What's the secret to getting the Check for Updates feature active?

Ok I really hope that people read this far down the forum because I found an answer! So I was pretty happy.

I was not able to browse the web with internet explorer after a virus hit my system. I couldn't figure out why. I clicked on "Diagnose Connection Problems" in internet explorer to run network diagnostics for for win XP and here is what it said:

HTTP: Error 12029 connecting to www.microsoft.com

If you check here:

http://forums.techarena.in/windows-xp-support/1105155.htm

It says:

Open Internet Options, Connections tab, click "Lan Settings" button,

deselect all.

This is what worked for me! So now malwarebytes updates just fine. No longer the error code: 732 (12029, 0)
