[Suggestion] Where did the full scan go?


Recommended Posts

Hi MBAM Community / Staff.

I would like to make a suggestion to MBAM Premium 2.0.

First off: If this has already been suggested and answered, I'm sorry for reposting. But when searching for topics, I couldn't find anything related.

Since MBAM 2.0 was released, I liked almost all the changes, and the interface is ok, i guess. But what bothers me, is that there doesn't seem to be a full scan option anymore, and going via the custom scan isn't handy. The Threat Scan just goes through C:, but not through other partitons, so I want to suggest to reimplement the full scan option into MBAM 2.0.

I know that this is not a big deal, since its not much work selecting all drives in a custom scan, but i.m.o it would still be nice to have a "Full Scan" button in the scan-tab, or to schedule a full scan.

Thank you for reading,

Hello and :welcome: :


The different types of scans were renamed in version 2, and it has caused a bit of confusion.

"Flash" is now "Hyper"
"Quick" is now "Threat"
"Full" is now "Custom"

Hyper scan is available only to paid, PREMIUM users and is not routinely needed or recommended -- if anything is found, a subsequent Threat scan will be needed anyway.
THREAT scan is the most important and most useful scan -- it is the one that ought be run on a regular basis (daily is the default setting now in 2.0).
Custom depends on what drives, folders and files are selected -- routine use of a "full" system scan is neither necessary nor recommended, as it's a task better suited to your antivirus.

ALSO, for additional information:
There is an FAQ Section here: Common Questions, Issues, and their Solutions
And here are links to the MBAM 2.0 User Guide: Online and PDF
And there are many useful KB topics and videos at the helpdesk support page


Thank you,
