  1. I get these daily scans and I noticed sometimes my PC's performance would sometimes drop and that is due to the daily scheduled scan. I want to turn off that Automatic Scan. I only want Malwarebytes to catch malwares and viruses only when I load suspicious websites, downloads, or execute suspicious files or programs. I do not want to run it 24/7. How do I do that in version 4.3 as of April 24, 2021? I've seen other articles with this solutions but that was on the much older UI (user interface). How do I do that with this new UI? Every time I try turning off "If missed, scan at next opportunity", the toggle button turns itself back on whenever I return to these Schedule Scan options.

  2. Hello, I am a premium user of Malwarebytes. Please will you advice how I can set my automatic updates to take place every day when I turn on my computer instead of at a designated time. I turn off my computer when not in use, and never reboot. Many thanks
