I am using Windows 7 64... ultimate I think with Security Essentials as my antivirus. I checked MS Security Essentials history and it showed my computer had allowed two trojans and deleted them. I ran a quick scan which showed nothing and am currently running a full scan which should be done by the end of the day. Can you please help me verify I do not have a virus?

Thanks

Supplement your anti-virus by performing scans with trustworthy security tools like:You can also get a second opinion by performing an Online Virus Scan.

I have attempted to install and run Malwarebytes several times but I keep getting the same error which states that this "Version is not compatible with the current database. Please download and install the latest version."
I uninstalled Malwarebytes, used the clean utility offered to completely remove the program and restarted. Then I downloaded Malwarebytes again through the you provided, reinstalled and followed the install steps as outlined. I got the same error.
I have tried this multiple times. Please help.

What other security tools are you using? Did you disable them prior to attempting the install? Malwarebytes uses a "run once" load registry value for the installer to complete the installation. Other security tools which monitor startups may be prohibiting the "run once" from executing and allowing the installer to complete on reboot.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware uses Inno Setup instead of the Windows Installer Service to install the program. As such, you can also try installing in "safe mode".

If that still does not resolve the problem, try the SUPERAntispyware scan.
