Update through GUI


Recommended Posts

Updating 1.44 through the GUI....

---------------------------

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam-setup.exe

---------------------------

Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

---------------------------

OK

---------------------------

I went to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and tried to run the .exe from there.

I got the same message even though I ran as Adminstrator.

I then copied the setup.exe to my Desktop and was able to run from there, successfully.(Reboot now or reboot later...I chose later, and ran the a quick scan....see below).

P.S. This was in a snapshot where I was still running version 1.44, and not the RC 1.45 version that I was testing, also.

Hi Tarnak -

There are times when it is better to download to the desktop (although it is usually to Documents) - This gives you more access to items in the operating system and a better chance to alter .exe etc. when removing some infections - (such as 2010 infections) -

Thanks - :)
