"Bad Length" error

Recommended Posts

I have been using Malwarebytes successfully for some time, but today when I attempted to update, I got this error:

PROGRAM_ERROR_LOAD_DATABASE (-2146893820, -2146893820, CreateSDK) Bad Length

I get the same error whenever I try to run the program now, including in Safe Mode. Any help appreciated!
