Scan folder or file


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Sometimes I have the option when I right click a file or folder in explorer to scan with malware bytes... sometimes its not there... Not sure what is causing this... Can anyone please clarify?

I have done a search on the forums and can't find anything relevant.

Greetings and welcome :P .

Are you running a 64 bit version of Windows? If so, then that explains it. You won't have that option if you're browsing using a 64 bit program (like explorer.exe), but if you use the file menu in Internet Explorer 7 or 8 you'll see it there because for the sake of compatibility with browser plugins like Flash Player etc, the 32 bit version of Internet explorer is the default.
