I hope it helps. I can't run the support tool because 3 of the 4 Windows 7 computers don't have NET 4 and I was unwilling to install it.

I did find this when someone complained about the notification of updates in the free version.

If you right click on the MB system tray icon, you will see "Start with Windows" with a check mark next to it. Click it to remove the check then click quit Malwarebytes.
That should stop the popups. If you scan, you do have to remember to turn MBAM off again.

Since last night (after 11 pm) one of my computers keeps telling me there is a new version waiting to be installed.
I was just at the forum and haven't seen anything about it so I'm holding off installing until I find out what version and if there are problems. So as of now, I have an annoying popup on my laptop! All the computers have v 4.4.4 from the end of July.

False alarm. User error!  It turns out I did not update my laptop; even though my notes indicated all were up to date. It was still running 4.4.3. I don't know how I missed that one. I usually update my two before tackling my husband's two computers. His are up to date and so was my desktop.

I've set my Malwarebytes to default and it still show network error even when I'm not online. This is very frustrating and I wonder if I my time with Malwarebytes may be coming to an end.  ::) :-\ ???

Try uninstalling it, rebooting, then installing it again.

Can I suggest you visit the MB forum and seek help there. I am sure they will sort it out for you.

The forum's advice is to try the so-called repair tool. I did disable all uprating items on Malwarebytes--automatic and otherwise. Maybe that's the problem. The repair tool reinstalled Malwarebytes. Let's see if these things help. :-\
