Stop Batch file deletions


Recommended Posts

In windows XP a Malwarebytes scan deletes all batch Files in the "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\" folder.

I tested this by creating a test batch file in the Documents and Settings folder and then ran Malwarebytes scan and found the test batch file erased. I am unsure of the extent (what folders are targeted) of batch files that are deleted but Malwarebytes does not delete all batch files in all folders.

The reason I do not want batch files deleted is that I wrote the batch files myself. Also, the "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\" folder is a very convenient place for batch files that are run as a "cmd" opens directly to this folder.
