Malwarebytes 3.0.6 Rootkit Scan Hangs

Recommended Posts

Installed Malwarebytes 3.0.6. No problem turning on all protections. The programs seems to run fine. When I do a scan without checking for rootkits everything runs fine. However when I do a scan checking for rootkits, progression stops consistently after a bit.  I let it run for 4.5 hours and it never progressed so assume it was hung up on something.  I have to quit Malwarebytes and do a forced reboot (hangs during shutdown). I disabled Malwarebytes, downloaded and ran Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit Beta (most recent). The scan runs with no issues. Anyone else experience this issue or have any suggestions?

I'm running W10 with Norton Security which are all up-to-date. I saw that others have had different issues with Macrium Reflect which I use as well. I skimmed the Event Log (definitely not clear what everything means) but I did see that at the point the rootkit scanner runs, failures when it reads Macrium Reflect image files.
