True. I always delay reboots required by updates until I have wrapped up whatever else I have going on and close most of the running programs.

With one exception, I always run scans while other programs and my browser is open (the one exception is when checking Immunization in Spybot S&D; it doesn't like open browsers so I shut IE down for the minute it takes to run). I've yet to have a problem doing so (keep in mind I have a pretty powerful system that can handle the load). Of course, there is something to be said for caution.

Well I do believe I have enough computer to run many things at one time. I just choose to run security scans with things closed. I don't have any proof it is better. It is probable all in my paranoid mind. Because my system is quick it really doesn't take long.

Well not sure if the original poster will return or not but I'll go ahead and give some feedback.

MoxieMomma is correct in that currently you cannot disable the alert. True that I also would not recommend a full scan daily (more wear and tear on your drive than is needed) but what I find odd is that a daily scan would find something and need a reboot. Once yes, but not daily unless there is something there it cannot remove or something that keeps coming back. Probably best to have someone with training in malware detection and removal assist you with looking into what is infecting your computer and see about getting it removed.

AdvancedSetup -- I run scheduled scans through-out the week, whether other programs and browsers are running or not. While LaybackBear has a great point, there are times I have to get some things finished, scan or no scan

Hi RolandJS

With regards to a required reboot or not I can tell you that there is malware that if you don't reboot immediately after removal then you're wasting your time as it will respawn a new process and continue living on. There are certainly somethings that don't require a reboot to remove and some of those have been fixed but not all. There are many items though that cannot be safely removed without rebooting. I personally find Kaspersky antivirus to be one of the most sophisticated antivirus products at removal and it too has to reboot for many type of infections to fully remove it and they too ask to reboot.

My main reply is in reference to marios1441 about why it finds something over and over which it should not.

Okay folks you heard for the man.
My 3 brain cells tells me the man is correct.
Their is nothing when computing more important than a clean computer.
If a security program including Malwarebytes wants you to reboot do it when requested.

Remember some thing can't be removed when in use and a reboot is just necessary to clean the rest of the infection.

If the same infection keeps coming back it could be the owner/operator is doing the same bad thing over and over or one needs to do a deeper search with other programs to find the problem.

Remember no one program does it all.

I'm a fan boy of Malwarebytes. I wouldn't go computing without it.

Guys, you're correct, reboot as quickly as one is able; hence save work swiftly and reboot.

I am not agree with this.
why Malwarebytes is able to detect threats in each scan.
Please check the List of Installed Programms in Computer I am sure you would certainly find some Unwanted programms there.

also check your startup Items run>> msconfig>>startup and disable all the Unwanted startup.

Most of the time Antimalware programms report some cookies as threats. Adwares use these cookies to trace your browsing history.
So please delete all of your cookies using C cleaner.
Run a temp scan using hitman pro (one time scan) and reboot.
now you should not be asked for repeatative reboots as Makwarebytes wont found any threats.
