Windows 7: No confirmation that Malwarebytes has actually been scanning

19 Nov 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
No confirmation that Malwarebytes has actually been scanning

I am running the trial version and will probably buy the full version. I have set Notifications to remain for 12 secs but haven't noticed any notifications, probably because I haven't been at the computer at 15:00 when Malwarebytes runs. I can see in the Dashboard that the next scan will be at the scheduled time, but there is no evidence demonstrating the it has actually run, at least for the immediately previous scheduled time or, I would generally expect with such critical software, a running log confirming.

>>How can I check that it has actually done the last scheduled run?

If you have set up scheduled, automatic scans properly in the Trial or Premium versions (having installed MBAM from a Windows Admin account), these scans will run silently from the system account, as long as they are "clean".
There will be no popup or other notification, UNLESS the scan detects something (assuming you have the scan settings & notification settings correctly configured).

You can verify that they have run on schedule by opening the dashboard (either from the system tray icon, the desktop shortcut or the Windows start menu), then click HISTORY, then click APPLICATION LOGS.

You should see both the SCAN logs and the daily PROTECTION logs listed.
You can open any log by double-clicking it to view it; you can export it to a *.txt file by clicking the EXPORT button.
