Free version crashes when doing FULL SCAN

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I am new to this forum and have a question.  Everytime I try and do a full scan after downloading the free version (, it crashed about 3 mintues in.  The quick scan works fine.


Is this a common issue?  It is on a brand new hard drive, yet it did this as well on my old hard drive.


Any suggestions?


Thanks so much!

Hello and :welcome:

Sorry to hear your having issues scanning your computer, this could be due to several things, so please provide the logs below so that we can try and isolate the issue....

Please create an mbam-check log:

  • Download mbam-check.exe from here and save it to your desktop
  • Double-click on mbam-check.exe to run it, it should then open a log file

Hello, davemsc: :)


Please follow Trusted Advisor Firefox's advice to post back with the requested logs.

They will provide the staff with a bit of info to help them pinpoint the cause and the solution for you.




Hi,  solaris: :)


Sorry you are still having trouble with the full scan, as you reported earlier here: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=129544

The advice was/is the same.

However, as each computer is unique, it would be best if you would post the requested information back in your own topic, or in a help desk ticket >>HERE<<, rather than cross-posting in another member's thread. :)


The staff & expert members will be more than happy to assist you, but they will need some additional information in order to do that.


Thanks very much for your understanding,
