Scheduled Tasks Deleted

Recommended Posts

I am running Malwarebytes (MB) Premium on Windows 8.1 Professional in a domain environment.


Initially after I installed MB there were two scheduled tasks (installed by default):  Hourly Check for Updates, and Daily Threat Scan


After a couple of weeks, the user started getting message that no update had been done for several days.


I checked in MB > Settings > Automated Scheduling and there were no (zero) tasks listed.  Something had removed them both.


I used the app to re-define the two default tasks and they now appear to be OK.


I wonder what deleted them and if it will do it again?

Greetings and welcome,

It's possible that either a user removed them by mistake or that the settings configuration file which stores the settings for scheduled tasks got deleted or corrupted somehow. Hopefully it will not happen again, but if it does please do not hesitate to let us know.

Are you noticing anything else in the application's settings that appear to be configured differently than you had them previously?
