I have a Fast Win10 64bit desktop computer, with MBAM free on-demand only-

If I just click Scan, it only takes 37 seconds.

 

If I then click Advanced Scan..., and tick Rootkit/ C: drive/Scan   it is Very Slow (only 2/3 done in 27 minutes, and MBAM is whitelisted in my TM IS active AV !). I finally Cancel/reboot...

Then I get a "Buy MBAM" pop-up Nag (how do I Stop this?).

How do I configure to get a Faster Rootkit scan?

Enable rootkit scan in the following section and do a regular "Threat" scan. It will do the rootkit section of the scan and the important areas that is the preferred/recommended scan.

Buy Malwarebytes is the only way to stop that.

I had MBAM Premium paid, and Trend Micro Internet Security both active/installed.-

I started having strange issues with TM- their support informed me that MBAM active is not compatible with TM, and had me uninstall/reinstall with it free/on-demand.

BTW- I had similar MBAM active incompatibility problems with Norton IS!- I mistakenly let their pesky techs log onto my computer, and really goof up my system!

I don't know if there are any compatibility issues/conflicts with Malwarebytes and Trend Micro, however I do definitely recommend using the default Threat scan by clicking the Scan in the main dashboard of the Malwarebytes UI as it will look in all known locations where threats are known to install along with checking the drive for rootkits and checking all loading points, running processes, as well as modules/components loaded into memory/into other processes to look for threats and any time a new location is discovered being used by malware that location is immediately added to the areas checked in the detection databases by the Malwarebytes Research team so that as long as Malwarebytes' definitions are up to date, it will check all known locations for malware using the default Threat scan.
