Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Business offers three different scan types for our customers:

 

Quick Scan

Quick Scans will scan the most common areas where malware is detected, including the following items:

 

  • Startup Objects: Executable files and/or modifications which will be initiated at computer startup.
  • Registry Objects: Configuration changes which may have been made to the Windows registry.
  • File System Objects: Files stored on your computer's local disk drives which may contain malicious programs or code snippets.
  • Heuristic Analysis: Analysis methods which we employ in the previously-mentioned objects — as well as in other areas — which are instrumental in detection of and protection against threats, as well as the ability to assure that the threats cannot reassemble themselves.

 

Full Scan

Full Scans allow you to scan an entire drive using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

 

Flash Scan

Flash Scans are a faster scan that will search for threats that are currently active on your computer. Flash Scans will scan these items:

  • Memory Objects: Memory which has been allocated by operating system processes, drivers, and other applications.
  • Startup Objects: Executable files and/or modifications which will be initiated at computer startup.
  • Heuristic Analysis: Analysis methods which we employ in the previously-mentioned objects — as well as in other areas — which are instrumental in detection of and protection against threats, as well as the ability to assure that the threats cannot reassemble themselves
