  1. Hi buttons; Thanks for the reply. I do remember that link via your website and have used it before when I had trouble with 1.39. I still am wondering why (after a year+) is it not updated? If Mbam has this rules updated regularly(say, daily) then whenever some user has problems updating then he/she could always download it and paste it in the appropriate mbam-folder.... An updated-alternative to auto-updates would not surely hurt but rather would enhance more services(ease pressure/paranoia of not getting updated,etc..). Some people when they get updated-updates (whether direct or downloaded-separately/manually-installed) will not whine as long as they are up-to-date.
  2. Hi noknojon; I'm sorry I must have confused you on my post. What I meant was "...for Mbam to provide a means for users to download mbam-updates via a link/associate link in/via the mbam website. If the auto-update or manual update (updating via the Update>Check for Updates) doesn't work it will be a great help/alternative to stay updated even if you get update errors. "....Isn't it the time to offer users an alternative-updated-manual mbam rules update? There was a link I remember but it was not an updated one. Some AV companies do this..(Kaspersyky, Avira, FSecure, BitDefender, Superantispyware.. to name a few)..." Pardon I must've confused you on this. Thank you and regards:-)
  3. Time to Reconsider offering Manual Update download? Hi; Every now and then when Mbam upgrades to a new version we all hear about the updating problem errors. You'll have to go through a ton of testing/fixes..some who have not solved his/her problem with updates have either stopped or just turned their back away up until it's okay. Some go and find another malware solution. Isn't it the time to offer users an alternative-updated-manual mbam rules update? There was a link I remember but it was not an updated one. Some AV companies do this I am wondering why can't mbam offer that alternative? Why is it not being considered?
  4. Hi exile360; Sorry for the late reply. My updates are intermittent...sometimes I get to download updates..sometimes I cannot...I followed all suggestions and it seems that my connection or isp is the culprit or something. I just have to accept that my MBAM will not be up-to-date always... Anyway thanks for the help and hope that an "UP-TO-DATE manual database updates download" is being considered ( I sincerely hope and pray for this....) atop solutions being given here. Regards!
  5. Hi exile360 ; The set-up that you have identified in Steps 1 and 3 are okay. I don't use IE though..(I use Google Chrome and Firefox but setup is okay and even excluded: http://mbam-cdn.malwarebytes.org/database/rules.ref http://mbam-cdn.malwarebytes.org/database/....check.database in both of them the same as with my AV and firewall. Still haven't updated until now. :)
  6. Hi guys; Again I am back with the problem of th same Error 732..... I am speechless to know that all my security software will update itself normally without exclusion in the firewall, but following all the guide in excluding mbam in my firewall and in my AV the problem is still persisting. It's been 6 days now. I did the complete uninstall via the use of the mbam-removal tool and re-installing it again but did not work. Have tried it again and did a clean install but it's the same. I did that for the past few days for more than 3-4x per day. :) All my security softwares even when not excluded in the firewall update themselves normally..I wonder why is this so ieven if the firewall says that mbam is connected... Can someone enlighten me on this...
  7. Hi exile360; Thanks for the reply. Okay, very well said. So now I know that I don't need to download a separate file for re-installation purposes. Thanks guys you rock!
  8. Hi guys; Hi exile360 ; Thanks for the reply. I have no problems updating now. Have updated 2 times and it was good. I also observed that it updates fast even though my connection speed is low..seems the version 1.44 is much faster in updating.... Will get back to you on this.
  9. Hi mountaintree16; Okay. I will try it out to see, and will remember to use the "add reply" button next time. Thanks!
  10. Greetings exile360; Nice to hear from you! Well I verified again and it's included in the exclusions list of OA Premium and Avira 9. For Windows XP: C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys I seem to remember that it was adviced to me when I had problems updating before and found out that it was Comodo whose blocking it..(and was eating up my resources so I switched) afterwards it was Avira 9 so I excluded it all. Seems the problem of updating is fixeed right now. I haven't done anythin though...it just updated successfully the past 2 days. Now I'm in version 1.44. I'll check a little later if I'll have the problem again. Thank you for helping me out guys! I'll get back to you when I try it again a little later. Regards!
  11. Hi; Just a simple question during the Mbam update. Every update when there is a new version, mbam downloads the new version first before updating. I see an mbam-setup.exe in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, my question: Is this the setup.exe that I can save/use to install mbam to another pc? It seems to be the same as that of the downloaded new version of mbam (version 1.44 4.996kb)... I do want to keep back-ups of my software so when I need to re-install it it's a breeze and for this I download the updated version separately. If what I see in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is the same set-up.exe for mbam then I don't have to download the updated version separately. Is it? Thanks very much.
  12. Hi AdvancedSetup; I am using Avira Premium version 9 and I have excluded C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware inlcuding the system32 files of mbam. I have temporarily disabled the firewall as you suggested. I had updated yesterday with the OA firewall "on" and "off" but not today. It's the same error.... Are there any suggestions that I can check further? Regards!
  13. ---- Hi; When I did a clean uninstall via the mbam-clean removal tool I had the opportunity to update mbam. Settings remained the same for OA Premium and Avira 9 for me. But yesterday it was all the same story again. Same error message. I had to uninstall mbam again and reinstall it again to have the updates? When I take a look at the firewall log it says connected but I still get the error message. Help...
  14. Hi ; Very well said! It has been a very motional issue with this event and I believe those who are thrustworthy will prevail! All security eagrer people will always trust the reputation of someone who is honest and is bale to proove that wjhat they have been working on is "their work" and will defend it with all their honest effort. Kudos to the team and all the avd and loyal supporters! Be all you can be! Kind regards!
  15. --- Just to add: I place MBAM in the OA Premium Exclusion list and now I am getting an error 732(12031,0). I have uninstalled and re-installed mbam and still cannot update. In the meantime I have placed a copy of the 12/21 rules I made in the Mbam folder Application Data.
