Malwarebytes and security center

Recommended Posts

Hello

Why if Malwarebytes doesn't do a weekly scan, at least the security center puts a yellow warning?
 Is Malwarebytes the cause of that? It happens to me on my two pcs

The yellow warning on the WINDOWS security center is because Defender has not done its regular scans. Are you using Defender with Malwarebytes?

No, I used it before, and now I have Mcafee, but in all cases, it's the same.

When I open the security center, the problem puts it in malwarebytes, not the antivirus you use.

As soon as I put malwarebytes to do the analysis, the warning disappears, and if it does every 7 days it doesn't come out either

Try setting MB not to never register in the windows security center.

Hi @miguelgrado,

This is expected behaviour.

If Malwarebytes is registered with the Windows Security Center and a recent (or any) scan has not been performed, a warning will be displayed. You can see the warning by opening up the Windows Security Center.

Yes, I understand that, but what I do not understand is because Malwarebytes warns that it did not have an analysis, with little space... I mean, if it were more than a month, ... but it commands us to do it weekly, which is unnecessary in many cases.

Antiviruses installed, even if you don't get a scan so regularly, don't warn

Hello,

For the typical Malwarebytes user, we believe that running a weekly scan is a good method to help main the overall security of the computer.

As mentioned above, you can certainly configure Malwarebytes not to register in the Windows Security Center if you do not wish to see the warning.

it is not necessarily to have Windows Defender to not yet performed the first scan/or the regular scans ! in my case I have the same yellow warning sometime because I haven’t make an Outlook account so Microsoft will set this yellow warning for most of users anyway :)

me too here I’m using Malwarebytes with Windows defender !
