    Can't update MalawareBytes malware detector..?

      I've been using Malwarebytes Anti Malware flawlessly until recently when I went to download the latest malware info. from their site and NOW McAfee VS says that there a "Generic.dx" Trojan and won't let me download the latest updates?!

      A code 2 error message box comes up simultaneously along with the McAfee warning window about the "Generic.dx" trojan it has detected.

      "An error occured while trying to rename a file in the destination directory: Movefilefailed; code 2 The system cannot find the file specified"


      This is the first time this has happend. I deleted the Malwarebyte Anti-Malware program to do a clean download, which apparently isn't the problem here, and NOW I can't even download it because VS thinks there's a "Generic.dx" virus involved.

      Malwarebytes said that they have contacted McAfee regarding this and said that the "MBAM" module IS NOT a virus, but until then I can't download the program...?

      Any suggestions or is something being done?
