Pausing/Stopping Scan?

Recommended Posts

Hi - MWB is currently scanning my whole computer. Earlier in the scan it found 7 infected objects and nothing since in over an hour. I am soon to leave. Can I safely "abort scan" at this point and then go ahead and quarantine the infected objects so that I can get on with my life - or does MWB automatically quarantine objects as it finds them? I'm afraid if I abort scan it will lose those 7 items and I will have to start all over again. Any advice?

Hello Chenmei and Welcome to Malwarebytes.org

I have done this in the past and never had a problem.

When using the Abort Scan option just follow the prompts to continue, also you can follow up with a Quick scan if you wish.

  • Click the Abort Scan button and then click Yes.
    Are you sure you want to Abort the scan?
  • Click OK
    The scan was abort
  • Click Show Results
    to show all found objects.
  • Click Remove Seleted
  • Click Yes to reboot/restart computer.
