program_error_updating (12152, 0, WinHttpReceiveResponse)
Posted 01 March 2011 - 12:35 AM
I cannot get Malwarebytes Anit-Malware program to update. I get error program_error_updating (12152, 0, WinHttpReceiveResponse)
Current database version is 5363. I was able to download and update the program on another PC, which is now at database version 5910 so it appears an update is necessary
I'm currently booted in Safe Mode with Networking. However, I cannot get to the Internet with IE, iTunes, the Malwarebytes update, etc. so Networking doesn't appear to be working. I know the network itself is working because I'm posting this message on my 2nd computer connected to the same wireless network.
I am very much a novice at this, so any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Note: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware database definitions file (mbam-rules.exe) is not updated daily. Another way to get the most current definitions if you're having problems updating through the program's interface or have already manually downloaded the latest definitions, is to do the following:
Install MBAM on a clean computer, launch the program and update through MBAM's interface. Copy this definitions file (rules.ref) to a USB stick or CD and transfer that file to the infected machine. Copy rules.ref to the location indicated for your operating system. If you cannot see the folder, then you may have to Reconfigure Windows to show it.
