Unable to change advanced sheduled scan settings on small screen size.

Recommended Posts

As the title states I am unable to change advanced sheduled scan settings on small screen size.

I have a customers 10inch laptop with a max screen resolution of 1024x600px.

Due to this height restriction (600px) it is technically impossible to change and save advanced settings on because of the height of the screen.

Is it possible to change the advanced settings of a scheduled scan via the registry since it is impossible to do this via the UI on a small screen?

Hello and welcome aboard Malwarebytes forum.


You just may need to ( temporarily) lower the screen resolution setting  and then try the change.

Please try that first   ( and or using Safe mode for that purpose).

While a registry tweak is possible, it should be reserved for just a measure of last resort.


Unrelated and as an aside --- the above setting for "Check for updates before scanning"  may result in the task being off +/- 15 minutes from the set time of run.

It is better to leave that off, and instead, have the separate Update task in the scheduler take sole care of Updates.

What brand / model is this laptop?

What other options are there in the Windows display ( screen resolution)  setting for this box?   Can you make me a list.


For example, what I am poking at is that one needs to try to test with all other possible settings ( like smaller text sizes) or no more than 96 dpi setting ( for resolution).


And can you test with any other resolution near or nearest to  800x600

I have the same problem on a Toshiba Net Book Windows 7. Resolution is 1024x600 and cannot be adjusted above 600. There is no driver update to change resolution. A registry hack would help a lot.

Hello KenW:

We are disappointed to read your system is having issues. Each computer is unique. Problems that seem "the same" most often are not.

The same is true for solutions. They most often need to be individualized.

It is less confusing for everyone if we adhere to the "one user per topic" forum policy.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. :)

1PW, It has nothing to do with a different computer and nothing to do with MB. My Asus net book 10 inch screen has more than two screen resolutions. Davywavy has the same, only two screen resolutions, problem that my Toshiba has.


What I was trying to tell him, is that there may be  registry hack for his display adapter and he has to search for it.

I found it for my Toshiba and was able to "fix" the problem.

Connecting an external monitor was one of the first things I tried, the laptop is too small to have integrated graphics strong enough to adjust to bigger screens and will still only output at a 600px maximum height.


Instead of having to build a new GUI perhaps a web based UI would be much quicker for them to knock up?
