Thanks for the directions. I did as you directed. You wrote very clear instructions, BUT, after trying to update the dataset, I get a Mbyte error message that says:


An error occurred. Please report the following error code to the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware support team.
Error code: 732(12029, 0)

There's some digital storm on my machine that began yesterday by shutting down Avira and then won't let Malwarebytes update, so am keeping it offline. I ran a full scan from a very old update. It found two items, a trojan and an ad and quarantined them. But the above prevents updating.

Since this machine I am writing you on is current with its updates and apparently healthy, can I move the dataset by flash drive from this machine to the infected one and then run Malwarebytes with the current dataset? If so what's the name of the file and where do I find it? Is it Rules.Ref

Yes you can, and it is rules.ref I'd suggest you should start your own topic in General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, even if you have identical problem(s), This way you'll receive reply pertinent to your problem and will not mix-up with balakrishnarao (topic starter)

Please also list your OS, all installed Security Product(s), and firewall. Should you have any other question(s) please post back
