Scan Logs

Recommended Posts

I'm using the free version of Malwarebytes 1.45, when I run a scan from the console I get a log saved (full + quick).

When I run a cli:

C:\PROGRA~1\MALWAR~1\mbam.exe /scan -quick -log -terminate

No logfile


C:\PROGRA~1\MALWAR~1\mbam.exe /scan -quick

Produces a log file.

Before the 1.45 update a log was always produced from both console & cli.

The save log is selected in preferences.

It's possible that it's overriding the existing setting, thus reversing whatever it's set to. The following is from the help file:

-log: overrides the save log checkmark on the settings tab.
So I'm guessing that since you have it set to save logs in the settings, the -log parameter is telling it not to save a log, but if it was unchecked in settings, the -log parameter would tell it to override that setting and save a log.
