• MBAM ERROR 732 : Unable to Update

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware will not update and you continually receive the 732 ERROR!!! The cause of this issue is not the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Program itself. This error can occur if your internet connection settings have been changed by software such as a Web accelerator, proxy software, or even security software that uses proxy settings.


    To fix the error, you need to ensure that the internet options settings are configured correctly as I have found in the article below:

    And if you are using a web accelerator such as NetZero Accelerator, turn off the 3G accelerator as outlined on the Netzero help page:

    Malware infections on your PC can also cause modifications in the internet options settings or not allow you to even access any sites for the removal of these infections.

    Please note that error code 732 was retired after version 1.44, and as of version 1.45 we now use a new error code system. If you are receiving error code 732 then it means that your version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is out of date.
