Newbie needs help with Ignore List

Recommended Posts

I just registered mbam. I have been using the free version over the last 2 years just to remove bad stuff and decided to get the full one today.

In looking at the Ignore List, I do not see any way to exclude files ending in .ISO or .NRG. Many of these are blu-ray movie images and it would be a waste of resources to scan them. It does appear I can exclude the directory or disk they are on so that is a fall back.

Greetings :)

You should be able to add the files individually, just expand the folder in the browse window and you should be able to ignore the files individually. It is correct that you cannot exclude individual filetypes, however, also keep in mind that if a file is not an executable (i.e. the file header does not begin with MZ), then it will generally not be scanned as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not a raw file scanner like traditional antivirus programs are.
