states latest database, doesnt check


Recommended Posts

I installed malware bytes and when you try to update it states that you have the latest database version

though other folks have a newer one, and as verified with wireshark, it doesn't reach out to verify that

turned off windows firewall and still nothing

what does anyone think?

thanks

Hello walt007: :welcome:

Please do a MBAM clean re-install by doing the following:

  • Download and run the latest mbam-clean.exe.
  • Restart your computer, please allow it to do so - VERY IMPORTANT!
  • Disable your Anti-Virus and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here.
  • Reactivate the PRO version of the program using the license within the boxed version or was sent via email.
  • Launch the program and set the Protection and Registration. Then go to the UPDATE tab if not done during installation and check for updates.
  • Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the task tray if using the PRO version.
  • Setup any process/folder/file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications and restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications. You may use the guides posted in the FAQ's here or ask and we'll explain how to do it.

Please let us know how it goes. :)
