MBAM Issues

Recommended Posts

There is an issue with the option "Check for updates before scanning" that causes a delay in running the threat scan.

It is documented in the FAQ - but you have to know it is there or it is easy to miss - Check item 3 in the previous post:

3. NOTE: There is an FAQ section with valuable information located here: - Common Questions, Issues, and their Solutions


It says:

The new option: "Check for updates before scanning" will randomize +/- 15 minutes not only the database update check, but also the subsequent scan time. Users who want their scheduled scan to occur at the exact scheduled time need to leave this feature disabled and setup more frequent checks for database updates.


There are a number of problems with the scheduler in v2 - I dare says they will get fixed soon


Scheduled Update - "Recover if missed by" - not working? Started by me DougCuk

Especially Laptops and other systems that go into Standby mode and miss scheduled updates


MBAM is not performing database update at Power-on (after being OFF overnight) Started by DSperber
