  3. Posted Yesterday, 01:59 PM I'm a completely novice computer user. Recently, I have been having some malware issues on my PC which is Windows 10. I already have an antivirus, Quick Heal Total Security, and recently, it detected a Coinhive mining malware on my computer, plus, it keeps showing pop up windows that it has blocked access to multiple harmful websites even when I'm accessing reliable websites like Amazon and others. I researched a bit on the Coinhive virus and found out some serious things, and so I'm currently scanning my computer for all kinds of malware, spyware, adware, ro

  7. Although I've turned Rootkits on, I get the following message in my reports: Memory: Enabled, Startup: Enabled, Filesystem: Enabled, Archives: Enabled, Rootkits: Disabled, Heuristics: Enabled, PUP: Enabled, PUM: Enabled. I would like to know why Malwarebytes Premium is not scanning Rootkits on my computer. Any suggestions?
  8. I just purchased a second license for Malwarebytes Premium 3.0 so I have it on both of my computers. But I'm having a problem with the new computer when scanning with Rootkits enabled. I was running a scan today for about 8 hours and it just wouldn't finish. The screenshot tells the story better than my writing. Does anyone have any suggestions?

However when i look inside the reports, it says that the Scanning for rootkits disbaled . I have repeated this many times now and get the result same. Do you have any idea how this happens ? I also see a file
