I am unable to schedule scans in Malwarebytes Premium. I generally schedule scans for 2:00 AM but no matter how many times I schedule the scan the schedule doesn't save properly.

Hi,

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes for Windows Help forum.

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following:

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance
  • For use when you don't need or want to create a ticket with Malwarebytes
  • For use when you want to perform local troubleshooting on your own

How to use the Advanced Options:

Spoiler
  1. Download Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Double-click mb-support-X.X.X.XXXX.exe to run the program
    • You may be prompted by User Account Control (UAC) to allow changes to be made to your computer. Click Yes to consent.
  3. Place a checkmark next to Accept License Agreement and click Next
  4. Navigate to the Advanced tab
  5. The Advanced menu page contains four categories:
    • Gather Logs: Collects troubleshooting information from the computer. As part of this process, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) is run to perform a complete diagnosis. The information is saved to a file on the Desktop named mbst-grab-results.zip and can be added as an email attachment or uploaded to a forum post to assist with troubleshooting the issue at hand.
    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.
  6. To provide logs for review click the Gather Logs button
  7. Upon completion, click OK
  8. A file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your Desktop
  9. Please attach the file in your next reply.
  10. To uninstall all Malwarebytes Products, click the Clean button.
  11. Click the Yes button to proceed. 
  12. Save all your work and click OK when you are ready to reboot.
  13. After the reboot, you will have the option to re-install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows.
  14. Select Yes to install Malwarebytes.
  15. Malwarebytes for Windows will open once the installation completes successfully.

Good morning, @Don12 and :welcome:

Let try a different approach with setting up scans with Malwarebytes  and I would advise to setup your scans when you are most likely using your computer even though Malwarebytes will scan the time even if it has been missed. First click on Advanced and you will see a picture like I have below and it is okay to select all advanced option however I have mind setup not to Quarantine or restart in case of a false positive which every blue moon that may occur but that is your choice and click save when finished saving your time.

Also after you finish doing that you may consider making this change too below in the second picture. Uncheck Automatic Quarantine. Malwarebytes will still alert you to anything and you can share your log if needed be. Below Automatic Quarantine you can click on advanced and set your setting like I have but this is also up to you too.

First lets fix the scan time that you want to set in my first picture below. Leave the date alone and then just change the time to what time you would like it to start. Example 6:00AM or 6:00PM and click save. You can also schedule a quick scan to that take only seconds by clicking on Schedule Scan in the 3rd picture. Set the time just like you did in the first picture. If you need further assistance feel free to ask.

The final post with the schedule shows it was still at 2 am with scan at next opportunity enabled. Just wanted to reinforce the fact that Malwarebytes will not wake the computer to run a scan.

I leave my computer on 24/7. If not, MBP will scan when I boot up.

Some complain about the scan at wake/boot slowing things down, That is why I mentioned it.
