Currently, I have a HJTlog in the appropriate section, and this post in neither a bump of that post, nor an additional request for help regarding spyware/malware/adware/crapware issues, because I have the feeling that the problem is related to something else.
So I updated the database succesfully to version 1795, then started scanning with MBAM..
It quarantined nfr.dll. (it was infected with a trojan)
I restarted to have the files removed.
I tried and update the MBAM database, again, and it wouldn't connect, saying "Update failed. Make sure you are connected to the internet and your firewall is allowed to .. etc"
I am connected to the internet (can browse with Wyzo browser), MBAM is fully trusted in my McAfee firewall, I have made exceptions for port 7070 which seems to be MBAM's favourite port to update through, and the adress MBAM.org is not among blocked IP's. Also, I cannot view pages with ie, which I could before nfr.dll was removed.
Why can't it update it's database? Was nfr.dll perhaps needed, and if so, where can I get a clean copy?
