Posting this in hopes it will help someone out who experiences updating problems using MBAM:

Such a great Malware detector, yet so many issues with users not being able to get the signatures file updated. IMO, they have a problem with their encrypt/decrypt of the rules.ref file.

I have found on a couple of occassions when it happened to me, that if I deleted the hidden file rules.ref, then rebooted, then MBAM on startup recognizes the file is missing and prompts you to update it. Doing so solves the problem. But it may occur later on, which leads me to believe the encrypt/decrypt cause. (Of course, I have been told it is something on my computer corrupting the file.....don't think so ! )

:hello:

Neither did I until recently. And the symptoms go back to previous releases as evidenced by posts in their forums. Of course, lots of the probs are caused by people not having exclusions set in AV & MBAM, and possible firewall, but still, people have to jump thru hoops to get it solved.
