Advanced scheduled scan option details

  • Wake computer from sleep to perform task: allows a computer to be awoken from sleep mode if the client computer is equipped with Wake-on-LAN hardware capability.

  • Perform scheduled scan silently from system account: when checked means that scans will occur in the background, with no user interaction required. When unchecked, the scan is executed in the foreground by the logged-in user account.

  • Terminate program when scan completes successfully: checkbox determines whether the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware user interface remains present on the user’s screen if no threats were detected during a scan.

  • Restart the computer if required for threat removal: will automatically restart the client computer if necessary to remove threats. As this can be disruptive for your end-users, this setting is not enabled by default.
