  1. I'm referring to manual full system scans which on my computer take around a half hour (or less). I have the free version of Malwarebytes.
  2. When Malwarebytes scans it uses 100% of the CPU. Could that cause damage if done too often (such as on a weekly or monthly basis)?
  3. Sorry, wasn't able to get to it yet. If I post the logs next week, would you be able to look at it?
  4. Sure. But first just take a look at this two logs, the first is when "Custom scan" was selected {with C and E drives clicked), while the second was the regular "full" scan. Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Scan Date: 6/28/17 Scan Time: 9:52 PM Log File: Administrator: No -Software Information- Version: Components Version: 1.0.141 Update Package Version: 1.0.2251 License: Trial -System Information- OS: Windows 10 CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: PC\Main -Scan Summary- Scan Type: Custom Scan Result: C
  5. Just did a custom scan on a SD card but included the C drive to enable rootkit scanning as well. This scan took 45 minutes. Apparently my suspicion that the first "regular" scan didn't scan anything was correct.
  6. Just installed Malwarebytes on a new Windows 10 laptop. 1) The first scan took 1 minute, a subsequent scan (with rootkit detection turned on) took 2 and a half minutes. I like fast scanning, but is that fast even possible to scan a drive with 40GB on it (of Windows files and Asus bloat)? 2) Why did it use 100% of the CPU (of a 7th i5)?
  7. I know that. I didn't direct that question at you personally and no offense was intended . I just meant to ask if you were aware why Malwarebytes is having trouble since the release of version 3. Too true. Nonetheless, MBAM 2 was relatively stable and reliable, while MB3 has been one big mess for many.
  8. Do you know why for months following the release of version 3 there's still one bug after another, and one issue following the next? (Earlier versions never had these problems.) This program used to be reliable.
  9. Since MB3 was released I re-installed the latest version (or mini version 3.x) several times, each time another issue comes up. Am I going to have to keep on re-installing the latest mini version each time for it to work, otherwise one thing or another will go wrong? This kind of thing never happened with MBAM 2, when I had it older (mini) versions worked fine. When I buy a new computer with a more recent OS can I expect similar issues to keep on coming up with MB3 as well?
  10. As it relates to FRST, I assume these are false positives? Thanks.
  11. After trying to do a full scan twice, this was the result after two plus minutes and three plus minutes respectively.
  12. I already uninstalled the initial version of Malwarebytes 3.0 and waited for some time before doing a clean install of version 3.0.5 but I guess I could try it again for 3.0.6. Thank you very much
