Automatic Updates


Recommended Posts

Hello Forum:

Does any body knows how should I configure the antimalware tool to get it Auto Updated??? I have the full version for test and the real time protection works great, but I have to do the update manually.

Thanks..regards!!

Has there been an update to the scheduler manual. I could use some instructions on the advanced portion of this module. Specifically, I need to know whether or not the "wake computer from sleep" function will start a computer that is off or just wake a computer up from hibernation or sleep mode.

This feature may not work on all computers as we can not control how the computers WOL feature works.

The only thing that will wake the computer from off is your finger on the on/off switch!

Hello and :)

How To Use The New Scheduler

Once you register your full version make sure you schedule your program for automatic updates and scans.....

Have a look at How To Use The New Scheduler

Hello,

This new schedule is different from the "Automatic" feature of previous versions. I am finding that current users of MBAM who purchased this at my direction, are finding their computer unprotected due to the fact that the automatic updates/scanning are not happening. Every install needs to be touched and updated to allow for "automatic Updates" ?

Please advise.

@ - Heavus - This is a bit confusing ?

Once installed (on each H/Drive) there should not be any major problem -

@ - Kidd - your system is always on unless the mini battery is dead or removed - Otherwise there would be no continuing time/date operation etc -

Let see if I can explain this more clearly.

User 1 has the paid version of MBAM. It does autoscan and updates once a day on older versions. New version comes out and the update and the scan must be manually scheduled. If this is not done the software works, blocks IP addresses but does not update or scan automatically. So, every installation before the new scheduling method is not updating or scanning.

This issue is only happening when users update from v1.43 or lower. 1.44 introduced a new scheduler.

So, I have the same problem as described by the user above. I still don't understand what to do about it. Please instruct me.

Thanks.
