Windows 7: Latest Version of Malwarebytes

I note this peculiarity:

The "scan" tab says my last scan was today at 12:09:45, about 4 hours ago. I'll assume that's correct. I didn't notice it at the time.

The "dashboard" tab says "next scheduled scan 3/6/2015 11:57:56 AM". That's also about 4 hours in the past. Clearly wrong, whether or not I was actually scanned at or around that time.

A bug?

Intentional behavior to say my next scan will be 4 hours ago?

Any others seeing this?

That's a bug that has been complained about and reported.
I'm not sure if they should have it fixed yet with the latest beta.

Thank you, David.

Rootkit scan seems to add very little time to my scans, so I'll leave it checked.

Kinda sorta. Right now, I'm showing last scan was 14 hours ago and the next scheduled scan is 3/4/2014 1:51:23 AM. Time travel?

If speed is more important to you, a separate Threat Scan can be scheduled, in the Premium version, where a less frequent, and less stringent, scanning schedule has been chosen.

Try a few Threat Scans with everything enabled and see if this is what you like.

Cheers.

I've been running my scheduled scans with rootkit enabled since v2 came out.
It hasn't caused me issues.

Run a manual scan with rootkit enabled and see if you have problems.
My scans are set to run once a day in the wee hours so I'm not concerned with how long it takes. I just enabled it so we will see if there is a problem or not.

You're welcome, but just checked and they say it's fixed in the BETA...

Quote:
What’s new:
  • Brand new UI design! Much cleaner look with a toned-down color scheme.
  • Improved scan flow – all scans now automatically check for and apply the latest database updates so you're always scanning with the latest protection. (Exception: this will not occur with Scheduled Scans if you have the option to “check for updates before scanning” disabled.)
  • You’ll automatically be prompted to download new program updates for the beta whenever they’re available. You can check back to this thread for details on the latest changes included in the new versions.
  • Simplified Quarantine flow – threats detected are pre-selected for removal and users are presented with a single “Remove Selected” button. Clicking “Remove Selected” quarantines all checked items. If you uncheck any threats you will see a new dialog asking what action should be taken on the unselected items: Ignore Once, Ignore Always, Cancel.
  • Improved malware protection capabilities, including enhanced rootkit detection and removal.
  • The Minimize button now minimizes the main program window to the taskbar instead of the tray.
  • Addressed numerous issues with Scheduled Scans, including showing the correct date for “Next schedule scan” on the dashboard.

It takes so little time I do all my updates and scans manually.
That might be a reason I'm not having any problems with Malwarebytes.
I don't auto update or scan anything.

I too scan manually, run one scanner after the other (running them now). Then tomorrow I make system images. Then I run various cleaners (all tested over time, but notice after new system images ).

I have always ticked the rootkit scan when I scan. All these scanners run in the background while I surf. Never notice they are running until they pop up results. A Guy

New 2.1.2.1016 Release Candidate 1 version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware released.
It will be offered through Updates.

https://forums.malwarebytes.org/inde...e-candidate-1/

What's New since Beta 2:

  • Fixed the scan hang that some users reported
  • Windows XP users with admin privileges should no longer get the "Run as" prompt to install an MBAM update
  • Reduced the width of the UI for some languages where it was way too wide (Note: there is a known issue where the UI size gets stuck and does not always “snap” back to the default size when you switch back to English, even if you try to manually resize. The fix for this is to Exit MBAM by right-clicking, choosing Exit and then re-launch the program.)
  • Final Change log has been updated and is now included in the installer
  • Tables throughout the program have been improved for better usability
  • The majority of updated translations are now included – thank you to all our community volunteers for your help with this!
  • Minor copy edits

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?
