I'm not absolutely sure on that as I have the paid version on all my systems.
The free version doesn't run automatic scans or updates so you would have to manually do something to detect any malware.
If you start a scan and walk away, it might auto quarantine if you're not there when items are detected ???

When i got bricked it was caused by an auto update of the virus definitions.
The PC just immediately bricked as real-time protection quarantined valid OS system files.

Maybe someone else here knows and will reply, or you could ask on the MBAM forum.
I would like to know as well. I've posted the question over at Malwarebytes forms. I'll post the response here or you can check it directly here: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/inde...arantine-v214/

I did some searching and found a thread about the "Auto quarantine confusion".
I think you are OK, it seems scans don't use the "40 second rule" that real-time protection uses.

Items detected by a manual scan will never be automatically quarantined (The 40 second rule does not apply!).

David,

I'm trying to find out about the Premium version. I don't think it's been changed but it never hurts to confirm it.

It was my error to quote as I didn't notice that Seffrid was referencing the free version. Getting old isn't easy, at least that's what I'm going to blame it on. I apologize.

Stan

I received a response that confirmed there has been no change to the Auto Quarantine procedure in the latest release of the Premium version.

It's more scheduled scanning from what I'm getting from it :/
The default update timing has always intrigued me a bit
Once a day or a few times a day shouldn't be such a big deal to accomplish

MBAM is specifically designed to target zero-hour and zero-day threats often missed by the AVs, some of whom update their database only once a day.
As such, the MBAM database is updated several times daily (8-15 times/24 hour) precisely for that purpose.
That is why the default settings for update checks are frequent (hourly).
There may or may not be a new database available at each and every hourly check -- in fact, it's very unlikely that there would be.

However, hourly checks (or a similar, frequent schedule) increase the chances that the user would have the most current database at all times.

Here are links to the User Guide for version 2.1:

Thanks I believe the crazy default I was referring to is checking for updates every 10 minutes,

But the default your referring to just increases insures the chances of getting a bad update

There never was or has been a "default" setting to check for updates every 10 minutes with any version of MBAM.

That would have been an end-user modification of the scheduler settings.
And such a modification to every-10-minute checks is neither necessary nor recommended, in the User Guide referenced in my earlier reply.

Thank you,
