error code 12029,0,winhttpsendrequest

Recommended Posts

I have uninstalled, restarted, cleaned, restarted, reinstalled. I have also added the appropriate files to the exclusion list of the firewall. I am running Windows 7 with Avira, MS security, and IOBit. My other computer running Windows XP updates fine. This is the error I get no matter what I do. I have noticed other people with this problem, but none of the solutions given to them has worked for me.

My database is 4052, date 4/29/10, even after clean reinstall.

Hope I didn't leave any info out.

Hello and :welcome:

First things first.... Are you running Avira and MS Security Essentials at the same time. Having more than one anti-virus software running at the same time will cause issues.....

I am running them at the same time, but I have also tried disabling all of them and it still didn't work. i thought it was best to have more than one anti-virus. Should I not? It was never a problem in Windows XP.

Hi -

You will find your MS Security is always running and is always active - If you have Avira as a scheduled running Anti virus this Will cause problems -

If you mix IoBit , also with an active A/V then you will have a very bad setup - Select Avira or Microsoft Security Essentials and stay with one only - :(

I find MSE runs very well , very quiet , and has very low usage -

Fully Delete the ones you do not want , not just disable them and keep Malwarebytes then you will have a happier computer - :)

Version 4147 is current as I type this - IoBit causes a clash with Malwarebytes due to its general make up - :welcome:

Post back after you sort out the Antivirus part and we can help a lot more -

Thank You - :(

Ok now enter the file exceptions from MBAM into MS Security Essentials like the example LOCATED HERE

Please exclude the following files from your antivirus:

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude them from it as well

For Windows Vista or Windows 7:

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
  • C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

For 64 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
  • C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
  • C:\Windows\SysWoW64\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude MBAM.EXE from it as well

Note: Once that's done, please make sure that if either of those programs has any sort of web filter, that you add the following as a trusted site:


The FAQ contains examples of setting file exclusions for some known AV products

Please post back and let us know how it went.

I already had the files and folders excluded and I added the processes. But that still didn't change anything. I used to have McAfee as my AV and found that it still had a few things running, but I have deleted them all and still no change. I've already excluded it from the Firewall, also. I didn't find any web filter. I tried disabling the real time monitoring from MSE, but that didn't work either. :welcome:
