The download of Malwarebytes does not complete and leaves a message to resume the update.  This happened before and after many times and still has not completed.   Now I have had to do a reset because of a SSD problem and I am having the same problem.  If this is not unique to me maybe someone else has found a solution.   That would be nice although I am definitely open to other suggestions.  It is becoming very frustrating. 
Thanks very much,
zbuckone

Sometimes if you have Malware it prevents you from installing malware and virus software.

Internet connectivity interruptions [via modem/router] can also ruin download attempts.  I'm going to watch and learn from the BC regulars.

The official direct download link is:
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/

https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/

Currently the downloaded name will be: mbam-setup-2.1.8.1057.exe
The Size: 24345872 bytes (23 MB)
The downloaded file should match one of these hashes (as of this writing 09/21/2015)

 

CRC32: 85379D80
SHA1: 7783C2A681393DBAE743E830C255420483A38F7D

MD5: d3b6fa14cb7e12b7fbc0b3aa26235898


There is no difference between the Free and Premium downloaded files. If you decide to purchase then you're provided a license that will then activate the product and enable the Premium features.

Not really sure why Bleepingcomputer is not currently hosting our latest version of the product. If anything I'd think they would offer the latest as well as one or two of the previous versions if wanted.

I have asked Grinler to look into it.

This is the version MBAM sent me. Will see if I can get an updated version.
