I'm sorry, but neither of the settings in that screen shot is the default.

The default setting for update checks is NOT "realtime", it is "hourly".
(Such "hourly" scheduled update checks are randomized +/- 15 minutes, to balance server load. That is why this is the default setting.)

Selecting "Realtime" is an end-user change to the configuration and settings.
And, yes, there is a drop-down menu of frequency options for realtime updates, but those are not default, either.
That is another end-user configuration change.

Here are links to the User Guide for version 2.1:

Thank you,

Not for mine it's the default after install and it's the default for a new scheduled task.

The frequent updates we are referring to are database updates, not program updates. I've never heard of a bad database update.

Okay :/
This is a non specific thread covering mbam 2.0 in general which you've said many times to be flawed
But it's all good,

I was simply pointing the default update task after activation and it's still the default task for a new task for updating "If" not manually changed which has been questioned by Moxie...

Can anyone else verify ? Task New/ Update/ RealTime is already pre-selected = 5 minutes as a default.

It was a database update in April 2013 that disabled thousands of computers worldwide.

That is why there is some concern about the auto-quarantine feature (especially when it kicks in after 40 seconds even if you have it disabled), as it was the auto-quarantine of multiple operating system files following a routine database update that brought down so many computers in the short time before MBAM realised there was a problem and pulled the update.

I stand...er...sit corrected. Apparently, I lucked out and didn't get affected by that.

Personally i never had the default as 5 minutes, but i have read many posts where people see this.
I think it's a quirk/bug that affects different PC's differently.
I believe both opinions are true depending on the PC ...

I have seen where my settings don't get carried forward correctly when doing a program update.
I've learned to go though all settings after a program update and make sure they are what they were, and what i want.

Yes, I've done the mbam-clean drill more times than i can count, and have sent info to MBAM support...

Clean is useless I've done it seems a hundred times with the same negative results or the same bugs.
1.75... was flawless.
2.0... not at all.

Regarding the "Auto-Quarantine" question/confusion, here is my understanding.

A Manual scan will never auto quarantine. This applies to the FREE and PAID version.

For Scheduled Scans, auto quarantine can be disabled in settings. Scheduled Scans are only in the PAID version.

With real-time protection, an auto-update of bad virus definitions can brick a PC immediately or within 40 seconds.
Real-time protection and auto updates are only in the PAID version.

These "rules" apply to all versions: 1.* and 2.*
If I'm wrong, let me know so i can edit this post and remove or correct bad info

True. That's why I waited quite a while before updating to 2.x. So far, I haven't had any problems other than getting familiar with the new UI. I will also wait a while before updating to the newest version to recently come out.

Malwarebytes Database Version
