MBAM - Error code 714

MJ..

With a 714 error code, reinstalling Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is the recommended "way to go". Go to Programs and Features and remove it from there. Restart your system. Then download and run their clean-up utility: mbam-clean.exe. You'll be asked to restart. Do so.

Just prior to reinstalling (below link) MBAM, temporarily disable your A/V. (Don't forget to re-enable your A/V, when the process is complete) It should eliminate the error code and allow you to scan. If it doesn't, please let us know.

Best of luck..

How To Disable AVG 9

I don't use AVG as my A/V ..... BUT......

According their FAQ #1311: How to disable AVG Free temporarily

To disable the Resident Shield, please:

* Open AVG User Interface.
* Double-click on the Resident Shield.
* Un-tick the option Resident Shield active.
* Save the changes.

Please do not forget to activate the Resident Shield again once you performed the tasks requiring its deactivation.


Additionally, "If you're having issues with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware freezing when scanning or when enabling the Protection Module or Updates being blocked", you might want to read this.

Try disablling AVG and re-installing it, before reading the above. Re-installing it should "cure what ails you". If it doesn't, read the above.

Your'e welcome...

Sounds Good!. :)

MJ..

I'm presuming (if you were able to scan) you're no longer seeing the error message. In answer to your question about the scanning times, it varies depending on how many files need to be scanned. With that said, the last time I ran a "Full Scan", it also took around an hour. You might want to consider keeping MBAM. Update it frequently, and run a Quick Scan every now and then.

It looks as though, you've ruled out "malware", as the cause of the problem. Or at least in my opinion you did.

Not knowing much about Vista, I tried to find out if your "wake up" issue, is a common one. It's more than common! Does it make you feel any better to know, you're FAR from alone? (I didn't think so. Devil )

Bob hit the nail on the head when he wrote, "Sadly for most there is NO step by step cure since the cause and cure for this one has some thousand causes and cure".

The best I can offer is some of those "causes and cures". With a little bit of luck, you might find a cure.

Thank you

Carol,
as I posted above it found no threats at all, I thank you and Bob for all your help.
I just liked the feature of putting my machine to sleep/hybernate not sure which and shaking my mouse and bring it back up to the desktop,I just think leaving the machine on 24/7 is not good for it,just my thoughts. Thanks for the link and the trouble you went to find it.

Have a nice nite!
