The definitions can be easily updated using the dedicated section of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, but this operation requires Internet connection.Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Database comes in handy for those who are using this antivirus application to protect their PC without having an active Internet connection.An updated signature database results in a higher detection rate and improved system protection.During the setup process, you are advised to temporarily disable the antivirus and firewall protection, so that the new virus fingerprints are installed properly.We have seen the new version kind of Malwarebytes to be a little finicky when it comes to updates (continually says “Databases Out of Date”) Upgrading to the newest version, and updating the database may only provide a temporary fix, and then the next day you get the same message again: “Databases Out of Date”: Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the task tray if using the Pro version.Now setup any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications and restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications.As I mentioned previously, sometimes programs won't install or operate properly due to access permissions, or if parts of Windows are corrupted - or there may be another reason.
If it does not start properly after rebooting the system, then you are welcome to contact me for additional support, described next.

Today I tried to launch Malwarebytes Antimalware Free ("MBAM") and it gives me an error, stating that it is 'Unable to start' and 'Unable to connect to service', with an option to click 'OK' and nothing else. I asked Rachel if she would like me to connect to her system using my remote desktop support service to have a closer look, and she agreed.
