Can't download/run malwarebytes

Here is the link to my original post...


I have an old version of malwarebytes on my computer but I couldn't update it, nor successfully download the program. I got an error message after running the setup and going through almost the entire setup process. I tried downloading it off another computer onto a flashdrive and when I ran it on this computer I got the same error message:

"An error occurred while trying to copy this file: the source file is corrupted"

Oddly, I get the same message trying to install the program on the other computer (which is networked to this one)

I did successfully run ERUNT since I already had that program on my computer. But after running the cleaner I had a difficult time rebooting, total freeze up where I had to cut the power at the switch.

Any new advice? Much obliged...

Edited to say that I suspect the router may be the problem. I saw on iTunes forums (one of the updates I can't download) that people with the same router (Netgear WNDR3300 WangeMax Duo Wireless-N) have been having the same problems. This would explain why I can't download anything on either of my computers, which share the router, and seem to be malware free. There is a firmware download but I am not sure how to go about it and don't want to screw up my computer. If this sounds logical can anyone help walk me through this? http://kb.netgear.co...tail/a_id/12689
