Select All items found

When Malwarebytes finds certain malware it has the malware files, registry items, and other items show up in the list but they are not selected. Sometimes there may be as many as 200 or more items. There is not "select all" button. Each item has to be selected individually. That's a big pain.

 

Can you include a "Select All" button to check mark all items found? That would certainly be a help.

 

Thanks.

Hello JOlderdude -

There is a setting (and even I missed it at first)

 

1 / Open your copy of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

2 / On the Top line click Settings and Click Scanner Settings

3 / Make sure all boxes are ticked and go to the Drop-down boxes below these

4 / From the Drop-down Menus, select "Show in results and Check for removal" (repeat for the box below)

 

There is a FAQ item, but I wanted to answer you personally, just if you had any other questions.

 

Thank You -

In addition to noknojon's expert advice ;)  to change the settings (which is the easiest way to do this - and then you can rescan)....

The default action for PUP detections is 'Show in results list and do not check for removal."

So if you want Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to remove these PUP detections reported after a scan, each item must be checked.

  • To do so quickly, you can highlight one of the detections by left clicking on it.
  • Then, right click on the highlighted detection, and select 'Check All Items'.
  • Next, click 'Remove Selected'. That should address the PUP entries.

This blog post >>HERE<< explains in a bit more detail, with screenshots. :)

That was exactly what I needed, as well! Thanks for the info, daledoc1 and noknojon!
