As of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware version 2.2.1, the right-click context menu option to scan is enabled by default.


If you do not wish to have this option enabled, follow these steps:

  1. Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click General Settings
  4. Change Explorer context menu entry: to No


Once you have disabled this feature, it should remain disabled for any future updates to the program. If you uninstall and reinstall the application, you may need to change this setting again.
