If from my standard account i right click Malwarebytes, run it as administrator and do a full scan, will it scan the files of both my accounts, or only the administrator account? The same question about MSE.
Thank you in advance!
Yes for MSE, and i do believe MB will also, but not 100%

Win7 Pro 64-bit

I recently discovered the Tenga.A worm on my PC and NAS infecting exe files. Free version of Avast, Avira, etc. do not allow scanning NAS. I used MalwareBytes that scanned both PC & NAS but it only wanted to delete the infected files. Then, I installed MSE that scanned my PC & NAS and cleaned the infected files without deleting them. So, I'm sticking with MSE for now. Besides, I paid a million $$ for my authentic version of Win7 so why shouldn't I get a little protection from Uncle Gates?

I presently have the free version of Malwarebyes installed and run a full scan about once a month. The reason I don't run it more often is that it takes about 2 hours for the full scan on just one of my hard drives. Double that if I have both hard drives connected. My question is: I have...
