Why running MBAM manually requires UAC??


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've been curious from day one concerning MBAM - Why if I do a manually scan or update do I have to use UAC approval? If I update or run Vipre 4.0 Antivirus, ONline Armor, or SuperAntiSpyware I don't have to use UAC - it runs the program immediately.

Just curiously yellow hiding behind the green door. (Post 100 - *FINALLY*!)

The scheduled task does not. The reason is you're running it under your own credentials and not under the system account like the paid version does with the scheduler.

That is actually the correct way to do it in my opinion, as it does not allow you to make a change to the entire system without first verifying it.

Thanks for the info.. Curiosity satisfied.
