Thank You Otherwise in windows, to scan a single file or folder, Rt. mouse click on the file/folder and drop down to Scan with Malwarebytes.... regards..

1. I cannot access

Firefox cannot access this page.

2. I would like to see how to scan a single file/folder using MBAM commandline, similar to its context menu.

I am surprised that there is no documentation on this basic capability.

Good, that means your protection in MBAM is working :).

While not documented, I just figured out a way to do this. Simply call mbam.exe from the command line followed by the path to the file or folder you wish to scan.

For example, if MBAM is installed in C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and the folder I want to scan is C:\Test, then I would input the following:

"C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe" "C:\Test"
