malwarebytes and firewall

Recommended Posts

There is an interesting issue with one of the update mirrors that we are trying to get worked out. Since MBAM randomly choses which mirror to use, 50% of the time it's using the broken one.

Version 1.32 will allow you to save a default mirror in MBAM, so that it only updates from the mirror of your choice.

I found that MBAM would not properly on a restricted user account; it says "updated", but the database version and virus sigs stay the same.

Run it with admin priv.

Correct, because the folder location where the definitions install is protected by default, so you must either run the program with Administrative user privelages, which is recommended, or change the permissions on the folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes to allow all users (including non admins) to have read and write access.
