Malwarebytes Antimalware

I have configured the latest version of Malwarebytes Antimalware program to make full
scan of my pc every day and when the scan finishes, a message appears saying i must restart
my pc for the cleaning process to finish. Can i disable this message? If yes then how?

Hello:

The reboot process is necessary to finish the cleaning process for certain types of malware.
That's simply how the tool works.
AFAIK, no, you cannot disable that particular message.
More granular user control of notifications will be added to a future release.
However, critical notifications, like the one you mention, likely will not be able to be turned off.
That would render ineffective the program's ability to clean.

Also, routine, "Full"/"Custom" scans of the entire system are neither necessary nor recommended.
It is a task better suited to your anti-virus. Regular Threat scans are all that are needed under most conditions, especially with safe computing practices, MBAM Premium and a robust AV.

Here are links to the User Guide for version 2.1:

If Malwarebytes request a reboot just do it. It would not ask you to do that if it wasn't necessary to do a complete clean.

Yep full/ custom scan once a day is a bit much any real reason you scan that way :/

Besides doing it after first download and after activating with or without scanning for rootkits activated might be applicable but once a day is overkill.

I up date Malwarebytes and other things several times a day.
I do normal scans with Malwarebytes manually about once a week.
I do SAS cookie scans manually several times a day.

Now if I think something possibly has attacked my computer like what happened yesterday.
Malwarebytes blocked a hyperlink I ticked on. It should be okay because it was blocked.
Don't care I'm still going to run scans with different programs to be sure nothing got in.

I don't do any auto updates or scans. Everything is done manually.
That way I know what is done, when it's done and how it is done.

Keep in mind you have to pay attention to your computer and what is going on if you want to do things manually.

I think there is no problem with delaying the reboot until you're finished with any open task[s] and have saved the work.

It's not unreasonable to briefly postpone the reboot until work can be saved, but I don't think that was the OP's question:

Moreover, the malware removal will not be completed until the system is rebooted.

According to the User Guide, one may be able to at least temporarily close the notification popup (see attached screen shot).
But, AFAIK, there is no way currently for the user to disable such a notification from appearing or to disable the notification process for critical notifications.

Thank you,

I think one just clicks the notification popup itself (that's what the text next to the picture says)?

Having said that, if you have a technical question about MBAM, there is an active support forum HERE.

And if you have suggestions for product improvement, there is a specific sub-forum for "Comments and Suggestions" HERE.
Posting there would be a more direct, efficient means of providing feedback to the product team.
They aren't likely to see suggestions made here or out on the world wide intertubes.

Thank you,

I don't run security scans with programs open and that includes browsers.
