Without the MBAM Swiss Army Knife the effectiveness of the application is in doubt and could also violate Malwarebytes' license.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware was not designed to work in a bootable environment, like Hiren and is actually quite unsafe to run it like this at this time as it may render the system unbootable.

In addition, as David noted, it is against our EULA (End User License Agreement) for our product to be used in this way. Also note that the version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware being used is quite out of date, meaning it would be likely to be far less effective anyway as nearly every release we have includes new detection and removal capabilities that did not exist in previous versions.

There's a bigger issue here. MBAM's system file protection (that is, the safeguards that prevent it from deleting system files) may not work from a bootable disk. Also, the heuristics may not work properly from a bootable disk, and either cause more false positives, or cause MBAM to miss real threats. Unless there have been some major changes in the last year or two, then running from a bootable disk is not normally recommended.

Edit: I see Samuel beat me to it. ;)

In that case it is something that should be addressed.

I do believe there are legitimate reasons for it being against the EULA, however that is a discussion best suited for another time and another place. ;)
