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?

Set up Malwarebytes PRO
How often should I setup MBAM PRO to scan and how often should I change my antivirus to scan? I scan using my antivirus every day since I am delusional that I might get a infection. Side note: I finally will get to start using the software that I reccomend but don't use. Yippee!!
