The SCAN FOR ROOTKITS in Anti-Malware 2.x is the same as is available separately in the Anti-Rootkit product.

 

Anti-Exploit is a totally separate entity.  Anti-Malware blocks the "what" that you need to worry about, while Anti-Exploit blocks "how" it works.

 

Here's an explanation of the scans.  You can read it yourself.

 

The guide for the full product is available online here

EDIT: OOPS!!! I apologize, @gonzo. I didn't notice that you were posting. :(

That is explained very nicely by @exile360 here: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/170229-anti-root-kit-beta/#entry974836

Bottom line: MBAR Beta is a special tool designed only for use with expert assistance on a badly infected system, not for routine use by home computer users.

Entirely different means of protection in 2 different, complementary products.

MBAM protects against the "what", while MBAE protects against the "how" (with thanks to @gonzo for that most helpful nugget).

 

How are Threat Scan, Custom Scan, and Hyper Scan in the Automatic Scheduling settings different from each other?

The different scans are explained in these resources, especially HERE

Threat scan is the recommended scan for most conditions.

Hyper (available only in Trial and Premium) would need to be followed by a Threat scan, if it were to detect anything.

Custom: a task better suited to your AV.

See above.
