MBAM can't update and can't DL the full installer file


Recommended Posts

can't update with either old systems or

3 Fresh OS Installs on New HDDs

2 fresh installs are mine,

and I just rebuilt a system for a friend whose HDD had bombed

no system here can DL the 1.5 installer in any browser

so I used the 1.46 installer

and tried check for updates

but that hasn't worked for a long time on any system

I can update everything else

ie.

- WinUpdates come down

- the winupdate site works

what happens with the MBAM updater is

the first 5.5MB file completes,

but when the 7.27 (V 1.5) update starts to DL it fails in less than 3 seconds

when I try to DL the full installer I get one of two things

> the first 50KB comes down and then it quits

or

> the DL never starts

- the TechSpot page never asks if I want to save the file and it never starts

- the CNET page pops the dialog for "save file" but never starts or gives the first 50KB and then fails

Eset says I'm Clean

the last sig. update I have for MBAM says I'm clean

SpyBot S&D says I'm Clean

I installed MSE, SpyBot S&D and MBAM 1.46

on my Friends system and it says he's clean

and it should be it's a fresh install

and so should my 2 fresh installs

I don't use the S&D Teatimer

nor have I "Immunized" the fresh installs

You may have a conflict of some security software .. try closing SpyBot and update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

.. Also, make sure the system time ..

Try the following:

Remove Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and reboot the computer. This is an older version. And have to use the latest version to avoid problems . To download the new version from here .

For Windows XP

Are you using Firefox? If there is a problem downloading with Firefox. Tried updated to the latest version. Or try download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware with Internet Explorer.

Thanks for the continued help

here's the status

I now have the 1.5 full installer

I had a friend email it to my GMail

I forwarded it to my Yahoo email

I Can DL it from the GMail Servers

- but not from the Yahoo Mail Servers

it gives only the first 40KB and then quits saying the DL is complete

or freezes and never starts (I could leave the DL Window open for the next 26 years and it wouldn't start)

it seems some servers don't like my connection (WiMax)

which is crappy at best

most days slower than dial-up

never less than 3% packet loss

and on some days, up to 30%+ packet loss

on those days nothing works
