Is current item what it is scanning or what it is scanning for?

Recommended Posts

So, I have recently started trying out malware bytes and I am a tad confused about this.

When scanning with malware bytes it says "Current Item: 'malware/adware name'"

Is it saying that it is scanning an item by that name or it is looking for any items that match the database for that adware, spyware, malware, etc?

I am especially confused because when the scan is done it says "Congratulations, you are clean!" which makes me think that it was just scanning for something that matched that item in the database, but I'm not entirely sure.

forgot to add a line which provided new information (admittedly, it probably wasn't needed)

It's looking for any items in that category that match the database. When the scan is done you will either get a list of what was found or the Congratulations... message.
