Files corrupted

6 posts in this topic

Hello.

I've been using Malwarebytes' for years now, and I'm very pleased with how it works. But now, my sister has gave me her computer, and one of the first things I did was tried to install Malwarebytes' on it. I was able to donwload the program but when I tried to install it, it gave me the next message:

The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program.

And I did. Several times.

It only worked when I used Softonic to donwloaded it, but then it didn't let me update it.

Help please?

Hello and :)

Is the MBAM you are trying to install cracked? Where are you installing MBAM from? Are you installing it from http://malwarebytes.org/? If not install it from there. ;)

Thank you guys. Both for the warm welcome and the help.

The problem seems to be solve now. Just one thing, before when I tried to install the program I tried it from the Malwarebytes site, and later I even folow a link provided in this forum and in both cases it didn't direct me to MajorGeek page. It directed me to a downloaded page inside malwarebytes.org! I just cheked both ways and now it sends me directly to MajorGeek :) I'm really confuse. Maybe I have a virus or something??

I'll see how everthing works from now.

Thanks!!!

MajorGeeks is also a site that Mbam uses for downloading their program. It is safe, not to worry :)

Softonic has been a 'suspect' site from Spain for some time now -

Please follow the directions from AdvancedSetup to have our experts review your problems -

Major Geeks and Cnet are 2 of our main distributors of the program , but there are several others also -

Thank You -
