Malwarebytes doesnt scan
Malwarebytes 3 – full custom scans for rootkits
MBAM 3.05 can not search. When I press “scan now,” it appears that it will search for updates, but it does not. A planned scan operates in the same way. This has been going on for about a week. The task bar alerted me that there was a problem (sorry, I don’t recall the exact wording). It revealed that malware security had been disabled. I tried but failed to turn it on. That problem was eventually resolved, but I still can’t start a scan. “Cancelled” is all that is written on it. This is on Windows 10 Pro with Windows Defender installed. There are no problems after a full Defender check. I had MBAM registered on another PC previously, but that machine went up in flames, literally, and I was never able to unregister it.
The issue is with Windows Defender. MBAM scans were properly disabled while Defender was temporarily disabled. Now I’ll try to figure out which files or processes to block in Defender. If someone has already found it out, I’d appreciate it if you could share your results! Thank you.
Unfortunately, I had a new set of problems: My PC started restarting every hour or so after I added those exceptions! This problem was resolved by uninstalling MBAM 3. I think I’ll go without it for a while and then try again with a later release. It may be a combination of Defender and MBAM, but I can’t have my computer doing unpredictable stuff… the people for whom I do design work won’t be happy if I lose their data! But, once again, thank you for your assistance!

I installed rkill and the Sophos virus removal tool and received an alert from Windows that Smartscreen could not be reached.

That’s the first time I’ve ever received a message like that, and it happened again when I downloaded the farbar tool.

Sophos didn’t find anything, so I decided to run another search on Windows. However, when I tried to open Windows’ security center, it wouldn’t load, and when I tried to open it via the settings app, everything else worked fine except the security center.
Hi, and thank you for your assistance! Natalie is my given name. So the rkill’s “Reparse Point/Junctions Found” didn’t really mean anything? Thank you, I was concerned it might have been something serious. I also ran an offline search and was unable to locate the log, but the security center states that no action is required. And right before the scan began, I was looking at event viewer and saw this:
Malware bytes won’t scan
I recently got a free copy of MB for a friend’s latest (Windows 10) PC, and it’s terrible! It doesn’t look anything like the MB I’m actually using. For eg, on my premium MB, I can decide which drive I want to scan, but this is not the case on the free MB I downloaded. I can’t seem to find a way to search a specific drive or folder, for example. And it doesn’t even mention (on either the list or the ‘advanced’) what drives are screened on the “Scan summary”…
The question that concerns me the most is if the ‘fresh’ MB I’m looking at would resemble the premium MB if I download an update for the two premium copies I currently use (or a new copy in October 2020). If that’s the case, I’m not going to bother renewing my subscription.
(People download free copies to get a sense of what the paid version would do; thus, if the free MB is completely different from the premium MB, it’s hardly a good idea, since it will almost certainly only act as a deterrent?)
If you need a flat file scanner to search archived data/drives, I suggest using one of the many free antivirus scanners available, such as Kaspersky’s Virus Removal Tool, ESET’s Free Virus Scan, or even Windows Defender, which comes preinstalled on Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10. Below are links to the first two scanners I mentioned:

Finally, because your tech support people have been useless (when they’ve responded at all), I de-encrypted my SD Card in an attempt to troubleshoot on my own. My unencrypted SD Card should now be flagged as a concern by the Security Audit, but it comes up clean — another question.
I WOULD THINK MY PHONE WAS Hacked IF IT WASN’T FOR THE FACT THAT I HAD BOOTED INTO SAFE MODE AND CHECKED MY DEVICE ADMINISTRATIVE APP LIST. Now it seems that your software is malfunctioning. You should investigate the seriousness of the issue as soon as possible to see whether there is any new malware stopping your software from scanning files or if it is, hopefully, just a software flaw. But don’t tell us it’s scanning files because your logs prove it isn’t.
I’ve found the same thing with the software as you have. Since the progress bar stops half way and a full deep scan only takes 30 to 40 seconds, it is clear that it is not scanning files. Something is preventing the software from running correctly. Thank you for taking the time to create an account and post. I was beginning to believe I was the only one experiencing this problem. Your private message has also received a response from me.
