Malwarebytes updates and ShadowDefender


Recommended Posts


I am new to Malwarebytes,I have the free version,and would like to use it as a on-demand scanner,for those files

I commit to my disk from inside ShadowDefender ShadowMode.

With the scanner I used before,I was able to exclude the entire C\Program folder for it,and updates were retained.

I canr seem to do this with Malwarebytes.

Is it possible to have a list of the locations where Malwarebytes stories update,so I can add the to the exclusion list?

thank you

ShadowDefender DefenceWall 256 HitManPro (on demand)

Hi gameahpoker? and welcome to malwarebytes'!

Malwarebytes' currently does not have an exclusion list to allow files /folders to be ignored. However it does have an ignore list which allows detected items to be excluded. If malwarebytes' were to pick up files in shadowdefender's directory it could be ignored. To make sure they are added right click shadowdefender's directory and select "Scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" then add whatever is picked up to the ignore list.

Thanks Buttons!!

I did not write very clearly,I need to exclude Malwarebytes folders from ShadowDefender,

so I can update and retain the malwarebytes updates across ShadowMode reboots.

I just cant find what folders Malewarebytes uses to store its updates.

Sorry for the confusion.

Here's a list of all the folders.

Program Files/Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Documents and Settings

Username(whatever you username is)

Application data


Also note that application data is hidden by default and must be unhidden. To do so go to control panel, folder options, view tab. Scroll down and you should see a section titled "Hidden Files and Folders" now click show hidden files and folders. Now you should be able to locate the folder.

Ps: The picture is of windows vista,but the folder options is exactly the same but with a new look.
