Suggestion: UI to create scheduled update & scan


Recommended Posts

It would be useful for "ordinary" users (i.e., not power-users) to be able to use the Malwarebytes user interface to create a Scheduled Task in which Malwarebytes (1) downloads the latest updates, (2) performs a full scan on a hard drive, and (3) terminates if there are no errors.

I know this is easy to do for savvy users (as long as you remember to split /runupdate and /fullscanterminate into separate tasks because the update won't execute on the same command line as the full scan), but "ordinary" users, those who need this most, are unlikely to be able to do it.

PS: yes, I know that the MANUAL solution, for a savvy user, is to create 2 Scheduled Tasks as follows:

1) "C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe" /minimized /runupdate

And then 2 minutes later...

2) "C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe" /minimized /fullscanterminate
