I ran a test scan this morning with the new version of SUPERAntiSpyware.

As soon as the scan started, it displayed this registry threat:

System.BrokenFileAssociation

The scan finished with no additional threats found.

Suspecting it to be a false positive, I didn't remove this threat.

I checked the SAS forums and discovered that others are having the same problem.

This is what my scan log looks like:

I learned about these updates through the update functions of each app. :)

Has anyone had an issue with the Malwarebytes update closing the running Malwarebytes instance so the new version can be installed and then not doing the actual installation? Twice now, I've run into that and when I double-click the Malwarebytes icon to run it again, it says it will kill the running app and install the new version. On the second attempt, the upgrade was installed and all is well.

Has anyone else run into this? I hit this on a Windows XP Home Edition (SP3) machine and my Windows 2000 test environment.

Peace...

Restart your computer after installing the MBAM update, and you should be okay. I had the same problem with XP SP3 and Vista SP2.

I actually did restart the computer after updating both SAS and MBAM but not because I was instructed to do so. :)

Glad to hear my experience wasn't unique. I don't like being "alone" when experiencing things like this. :D

On a side note, while I haven't scanned the Windows XP system I updated yesterday with either app, I'm scanning my Windows 2000 environment now with the updated SAS and I didn't hit the registry issue you mention above. Either that key didn't exist in the Win2k registry or the key was deemed to be "ok" by SAS. I ran the SAS update on Win2k this morning and ran a definitions update after doing the SAS upgrade and I'm scanning the system now.

Peace...

Ok, I've scanned the Windows XP Home Edition (SP3) system on which I upgraded to SAS 4.36.1006 and this registry key was NOT detected as being infected. I looked at it in regedit on this system and in my Windows 2000 test environment and the keys were the same and had the same values.

Have you looked at the key in regedit to see what it contains?

Peace...

Tom:

Here is screenshot of what the .exe section of the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT menu looks like in my Windows XP computer.

YU3 is associated with Your Uninstaller 2010 that I have.

My .exe key contains the same information that yours does.

Maybe the "Your Uninstaller" entry is what is causing SAS to detect that key as having an issue. The registry keys I've seen on systems that don't have the issue don't have the "YU3" elements.

Looks like a false positive by SAS. I ran into another false positive by SAS about a month ago where GnuPG was being flagged as some kind of malware. :)

I've updated my last reply.

I'm going to assume it's a false positive from YU2010 and not remove it.

I had the same issue with MBAM.
Dear phantom010,
I am having an MBAM issue alright, but a different one and it is"MBAM_ERROR_UPDATING(12007,0,WinHttpSendRequest)". I was away for the day and will be contacting the MBAM support.com with this error message. If any one has a clue as to what this is, kindly share! I always reboot when i remove or when i install a software!:rolleyes:
PS: SAS upgrade worked fine!
