Malewarebytes won't launch

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

I'm having trouble with my software

I've had it for quite a while and I have to admit, I've only used it once lol

I need to get it running though as I think it may help sort my computer problems out

when I click to launch it, I get the errornumbers 0 and 440 which I believe to mean that it needs an update. However, I have been told this shouldn't affect whether it launches or not! I don't have the Internet either as it won't work right now but this is being fixed right now; I'm using my iPod to do this lol

could anybody please tell me whether the best thing to do would be to reinstall it? I have done this before and it worked for a short time until now. And also, if possible, tell me any ways to prevent it from doing this? Thankyou

I just wanted this question answered, I've been looking everywhere and noone seems to know :rolleyes:

Hi YancyB,

Please see Section A, ISSUE 15 of the FAQ here for a possible fix for the 0 and 440 runtime errors.

If this gets MBAM to run, please run a database update before running a Quick Scan. If the update wants to install a new version of MBAM, please let it do so. Then after rebooting, run a database update before running a Quick Scan.
