Files scanned


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Been using malwarebytes for a while and have noted two issues, I would love some feedback on.

I have searched the forum for an answer for these, however it does not seem to be addressed.

- It appears as if there is a limit to the nunber of files malwarebytes can scan in one 'on demand' scan. This limit appears to be between 12 and 20 files however varies strangely. why would this be so, and how does one fix this?

- secondly and most interestingly, recently even if the number files scanned is as little as one (1) malwarebytes repeatedly will come back with objects scanned '0', objects infected '0'...and the notepad detail supports this.

this is not happening with any one particular type of file...and does not seem to change.

This later one goes to the applications reliability and trustworthness.

If anyone has some feedback or guide as to how to prevent etc it would be most appreciated.

thanks

Hello lethal1: :welcome:

There is nothing wrong with the application, it may be the way you are trying to scan or perhaps some setting(s). Pictures speak more than words

The first set indicates a total of 31 (greater than 20) randomly selected files (a mix of .jpg, .flv, .wmv, .txt, .pdf...) were scanned along with scan log

The second set indicates a total of 10 (fewer than 12) randomly selected files (a mix of .jpg, .flv, .wmv, .txt, .pdf...) were scanned along with scan log

Hi all,

Thanks for the responses.

Noknojon, I do mean to confuse. what part of my statement (or two issues) did you not understand?

With my 'on demand' scans, I was selecting and highlighting the relevant files to scan and malwarebytes was coming back (consistently) with 0 scanned and 0 infected.

Further, In was sure initially if I could attach screen prints to this forum. I shall do upon reocurrence.

I have followed your initial advise with the removal, clean and reinstallation and will monitor. Thank you

Haider, this is indeed how i was running the scans I called 'on demand' and coming back with that described above. Not sure apart from disclosing the basics of this process, what you were expecting me to do, therefore.

Again, many thanks to you both.

regards

I am sorry if both Haider and misunderstood the post , but we both have answered in relation to the quote above -

You can copy and paste details into any post , as I have done above with your quote , or if you use the ADD REPLY Tab , not just the Fast reply there is a function to upload screen shots that you save -

Also my scan was an On Demand Scan and the result is the notepad item produced - (Cut and pasted as it showed up) -

Thank You -
