An error has occurred. Please report this error code to our support team.

What other Security software are you using? Firewall? AV program, It may be you need to put some Malwarebytes files in trust with your other software? regards...

Just running Windows Firewall which I turned off and then rebooted PC with it turned off thinking this could be a source of the error. Unfortunately, this did not do the trick.

You should be running a Anti Virus program, example: Avira, Avast, are both free.. Or Microsoft Security Essentials which provide real time AV protection... regards....

Let me rephrase, was running Norton but had turned it off as well.

Uninstalling and reinstalling did the trick, however it is disappointing that this was required.

Just for giggles and the desire to find better anti-virus protection, I looked into Avast. THIS PRODUCT SHOULD NOT BE RECOMMENDED BY ANYONE WHO IS SERIOUS ABOUT INTERNET SECURITY AND I AM APPALLED IT WAS RECOMMENDED ON THIS SITE BY SUPPORT PERSONNEL. The 'free" download asked for my email address and could only be completed if I participated in any of a variety of scams. Such crap is the best way to get identy theft, viruses, malware, etc. What a joke!

I would like to let you know that there are lots of users using 1 out of 3 of those programs... asking for an email, is for notification of a major update. - or some news of a trojan out there. If you look back in the forums, you will find the three I listed, are RECOMMENDED by Malwarebytes....

It may look simple, but it is a strong program, This site will post no scams... At any rate, Glad your all fixed up. Feel free to browse the forum. Let us know if we can do anything else for you..... best regards.... ;)
