yesterday I had a warning from a fake Antispyware program telling me i was infected and to download and run the program . it was displayed like the 'my computer' window showing a couple of folder icons and disk icons and a list of infections. I thought this wasn't correct so searched for a solution. I realised I already had malwarebytes installed, so tried to update and got an error code 732(12029,0). Did the scan anyway, it didn't find anthing and it took 4 hours!
today I have uninstalled Malwarebytes and reinstalled it ( twice and still get the error when updating. ( also, when i look in the quarantine tab it shows files already in there . surely if it has been removed and I am downloading and installing again it shouldnt have anything quarantined) I know theres a lot of questions here, but am I right in thinking I need to sort out the Malwarebytes issue so it can find and remove. the fake anti spyware.
thanks for all your replies, I'm not sure that it is Anti spy 2010, as there has been a name on the display. i still don't really know what to do, so many options. this program is not a nuisance ...I have only seen it 3 times, but laptop has been slow for a while. I'm off out to work but will try a few of the suggestions when I get in about 9.30( I suppose another late night for me then!)
any more thoughts about the update error would be appreciated.
