I HAVE INSTALLED THE FREE MALWAREBYTES ANTI-MALWARE SOFTWARE ON MY NEW HP THE OTHER DAY. IT WAS PUT ON BY A COMPUTER GUY, ALONG WITH THE TREND MICRO I ALREADY HAD.

THE FIRST TWO BOXES ARE CHECKED FOR C, AND D DRIVES TO BE SCANNED. I WAS TOLD BY A FRIEND THAT SCANNING THE PARTITIONED D DRIVE MIGHT CORRUPT IT. IS THERE ANY TRUTH TO THAT, AND IF NOT IS THERE ANY REASON I SOULD NOT CHECK ALL THE BOXES TO SCAN EVERYTHING OTHER THAN JUST THE C, AND D DRIVES. :rolleyes: THANK'S, PITH

Hi pith and welcome to malwarebytes'!

Scanning a partitioned drive will not corrupt it. You should check every area that has data in it.

THANK'S BUTTONS, WOULD THAT INCLUDE E, F, DRIVES, AND EVERY BOX THAT CAN BE CHECKED? THE REASON I'M A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT THIS IS THAT THE FRIEND I MENTIONED IS A TECH SUPPORT GUY FOR A COMPUTER COMPANY, SO I WOULD APPRECIATE ANYONE ELSE THAT COULD WEIGH IN ON THE SUBJECT. I'VE RECENTLY HAD PROBLEMS WITH MALWARE THREE TIMES, AT SUPPOSEDLY REPUTIBLE SITES SO I'M A LITTLE GUN SHY AT THIS POINT. THE MALWAREBYTES HAS ALREADY CAPTURED ONE LITTLE SOB, SO I'M PRETTY CONFIDENT THAT ITS VERY GOOD. :rolleyes: PITH

It's possible if something was found on the D recovery partition that was a false positive. In general all you should need to run is a Quick Scan. As long as this is the free version without the protection module you should not have an issue but if you do buy the Pro version you'll need to make sure you setup file exclusions with TREND MICRO as it will conflict with the PM and cause freezing.

On another note please do not use all upper case characters when typing, it's considered shouting.

Thanks.
