I feel there is,
Please don't use it,
It's an unnecessary scanning option,

Dennis everyone gets lucky sometimes
Can't say anything was really wrong until I used the rootkit non-sense option,
Cheers.

What's up with that , is there an issue with the rootkit detection component?
@jonnyhillow,
Please see the videos and info in this post:

I did not discover the root kit issue; I only attempted to document it.

So I went ahead and upgraded, I gave myself some "Nasty's" in the forms of PUPs, Keygens and Trojan's! (Dont Judge Me...lol)
Ran full scan(custom W/rootkit) It took just shy of 4hrs (Damn thats long)(*over 3TB of space on 5 Disks). It did find everything, with NO freezes/lockups or BSOD's.

Edit:Just over 2TB of Data on 5 HDD's (3.5TB of space)....Not 3TB/space....

I don't think that is a long time with 3 tb to scan.
I do believe that looking for rootkits with any program does take longer.

How much data was there Jeepmann? If 3TB space has 300GB of data, it doesn't make nay difference the size of the drive, it scan only data.

Your much braver than I am that's for sure , Softpedia said Mbam premium's (in their testing) ability to remove all the malware it finds (and according to them it finds roughly 60% ) is very poor and that's scary.

That's encouraging that you say it's gone but I'm still worried and a bit disappointed for people who don't have great computer know how (like me).

But what is there to compare their 60% to ?
If they also showed test results for MBAM V 1.75, or other competing products, things might look different...
And then, what did they really test...?

I put a edit to my above post clarifying what I should have typed in the first place...

"Just over 2TB of Data on 5 HDD's (3.5TB of space)....Not 3TB/space...."

Brave and Dumb ride a fine line together...

I made a System Image before I tested (All my HDDs have a clone)!!
The "Nasty's" I gave to myself were run of the mill common (for a P2P user) that I removed from a laptop I worked on. I knew what I was dealing with and where they were hiding. Safe-ish way to test..
Don't think for a minute that I didn't run a battery of scans and test after the fact!

Yes I know I could have ran a V-Box to test(and I did) but I wanted to see how Mbam would run on MY system with all the data and disk.

Malwarebytes Database Version
I just ran the updater in Malwarebytes, and was surprised at the change in version numbers, as can be seen in the screenshot. I suppose they may just have decided to use a different system, but I'm wondering if it might indicate something more nefarious, like someone else slipping into the picture?
