  1. Is there a way or an option to shut down the PC if the scan finds no problems? I would like to run a scan every night before I go to bed. I currently have a scan scheduled for 3 am, but I don't like leaving my computer on 24x7. If I don't leave it on all night, it takes 20-30 minutes to run a threat scan when I boot it up in the morning, which is a pain. If there IS no way to do this currently, I would like to suggest that such an option be added in some future release. Thanks!
  2. Malwarebytes (MWB) threat scan is driving my PC into 100% utilisation and shutdown, often when I'm away from my desk. It's affecting my work and general computer use big time. There may have been external manipulation of my machine as I've been hacked numerous times, and MWB's settings have been hacked and manipulated numerous times, mainly involving turning off layers of security. I've set a user password in MWB now which has helped me get control of MWB, and now this overheating overutilisation of CPU has started. Even with my fan settings changed to Turbo, my CPU's are overheating and shutting down PC at times. I'm disappointed how easy it is to hack MWB and I've had 2 trojan intrusions recently which I've removed. Rather than data destruction, these trojans seemed to be focussed on monitoring my activity , data mining and getting identity data assumedly for banking access. Windows defender picked up these trojans- not MWB. any help with CPU overload would be appreciated.
