s There Something Weird w/ MBAM Site?

by tobeach / April 5, 2009 2:55 PM PDT

Having just tried 3 times in 10 minutes to update my MBAM v1.35 site was not found (or actually: Timed out at 60 seconds).

Went to the home noted "the blog is down" on front page. The GT500
link for latest defs (manual) show update #1893 when I currently have #1940!!! Also noted no FREE version only "free trial". Clicked the Maj. Geeks link for exe and it ONLY shows V.1.35 as "shareware at $24.95"??

Are they down by DOS attack? Decided to go pay only & not uppdating free versions?? Very confused! All this in the last 20 minutes before this post! Confused Sandy

as of now. MBAM popped up error code #706 (0,9) & "data base missing" but search at their site didn't return anything for this code. proceeded to update to #1944 and seems ok now. All scans come up clean (MBAM/SAS/Spybot/Blacklight/Avira anti-rootkit/AVG AV. Weird!! Sandy Grin

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
