Annoying Malwarebytes Anti-malware. [SOLVED]

Post by BlackAndWhit3 on Sun 28 Feb 2016, 11:03

I've downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-malware from the download page,installed it and everything's working fine,except one thing:it keeps asking for installing the new version of it every 10 mins,no matter what I'm doing and it's getting really annoying,since I can't watch a movie or play a game without that window popping up.I've disabled the notifications and update options in the settings,but it didn't fix my problem.I'd really appreciate some help,please!

Hello,


I'll have to ask someone else to have a look at this question, so please wait for a reply from @Admin or @Carlos.

Hello,

Have you tried updating to a newer program version then ? See this topic here, but I'm unsure if it still works:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t20862-malwarebytes-anti-malware-can-t-update-database-without-breaking-license-fix

Did you also do a scan recently with the program, and are there any pending "actions" to be taken, such as detected items ? If so, please take the appropriate actions, such as delete/quarantine or ignore.

I used to use the program, because it was highly effective (back then) against malware, but as of recently, things like these annoying notifications are one reason I stopped using the program. Feel free to wait for Admin's opinion on this too, here.
