Custom Scan (C drive) over 2 hours??


Recommended Posts


This can be pretty typical as Malwarebytes was designed primarily to rely on its default Threat scan which looks in all known locations where infections and PUPs like to install themselves in addition to scanning all system loading points in the registry, startup folders, services, drivers and task scheduler as well as all active processes, threads and modules loaded into memory so even if an active threat were running from an unusual location it should still be detected.  I would suggest trying a normal Threat scan and seeing how long that takes and if it is an unusually long time definitely let us know.

With that said, I would recommend enabling rootkit scanning for your scans located under settings in the Security tab under Scan Options that way it will check your device for any rootkits in addition to other threats.
