Review detected threats on previous scan

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I was wondering if there is a way to review the results of a previous scan, and remove the threats based on those results.

The reason I ask this, is I work on computers for a living, and often run Malware Bytes to find threats.  However, some times the scan takes several hours, to the point that it won't finish until I get back in the morning, and then Windows restarts for updates.  Another example, which happened a little while ago, is that a scan finished, I went to document the results, and came back to find it started scanning again of its own volition.

In these cases, is there any way to open the results of a scan, and decide how to process detected threats?

Thanks in advance.

Hello and Welcome to Malwarebytes.

I do not believe there is a way to bring back the results from a previous scan, you would have to rescan again if the computer restarted.

That being said, it should not be taking several hours to complete a scan, are you doing a Custom Scan (Full)?  If so, that is really not needed, a Threat Scan is really all that is needed and will catch all active malware on the system, this will reduce your scan times.
