Hi, metalmania31.

If at all possible, it is best to run anti-malware programs in normal mode. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, is intended to run in normal mode rather than safe mode as it gives it a chance to catch malware while it is active.

Wouldn't it depend on the circumstance, because sometimes viruses will block anti-malware programs from running at all. I had this happen on my parents computer when it was infected with one of those fake anti virus programs.
