    Iv been getting this lately when closing malwarebytes after a quick scan.

    This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Association control panel.

    Iv never seen this kind of error it would be helpful to know what this is for the next time around.

    Is Malwarebytes finding any problems during a quick scan, and are you allowing them to be fixed?

    What version are you using? 1.40 is the current version.

    Nope ,nothing out of the norm except this error ,i haven't been seeing anything popping up in any scans for the last month or so and this version is 1.40.

    I also have a fresh vista

    i did get a little something i forgot to delete in quarantine ,it deleted fine.


    I always update before scanning and i haven't reinstalled or moved and deleted any of the malwarebytes files that i can recall.

    Are you getting the error message when closing Malwarebytes or when closing its scan log?

    I use Malwarebytes and have installed and used it in numerous computers and have never had that problem with it.

    Actually i was a off on my part ,it pops up right after the no malicious items detected message and then i have to X it to close the program.

    I never started seeing this intill recently and iv also used malwarebytes for a year or so on all computers i touch and never seen this error. Although the error doesn't seem to have any effect from what i can see and what my experiences tell me ,im thinking if i should download it again?

    I don't know how this will effect malwarebytes performance like updates as of now and starting over.

    If you need to uninstall it and then reinstall it again, that's fine.

    Just run its update function afterwards to get it up-to-date with the latest definition files.

    You're doing something wrong somewhere, but I'm not there to see what it is, so I can't offer any further advice about the error message.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Are you trying to view the contents of the C:\Users\(Username)\AppData\Local\Temp folder?

    yes ,i am trying to view C:\Users\(Username)\AppData\Local\Temp

    Im not very familiar with these folders or why i cant see them in the first place but now i have to be because allot of my downloads mistakenly end up there and i cant see or edit them due not knowing enough.

    Create a folder right on your desktop, then name it Downloads or My Downloads.

    When you start to download a file from a website and you choose "Save", direct it to be saved in that folder.

    You'll then always know where your downloaded files are and will have quick and easy access to them. (y)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    You probably can't find that temp folder because the default Windows settings conceals certain files and folders from easy view.

    Open the MY COMPUTER main window, then click Tools - Folder Options - View(tab).

    Select "Show hidden files and folders".

    Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".

    Click Apply - OK and ignore any warning that appears.

    You should be able to find and acess that temp folder now. (y)

    You can access these files just by copying the path into your explorer window address bar.
