Clicking Recommended Settings under Advanced Settings in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) v.2.x will automatically change the settings to suggested settings which will provide optimal protection of your computer without causing any unforeseen issues. These include:

  1. Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware with Windows
  2. Enable Malware Protection when Malwarebytes Anti-Malware starts
  3. Enable Malicious Website Protection when Malwarebytes Anti-Malware starts
  4. Automatically quarantine detected items

You can always change these by checking or unchecking boxes inside the Advanced Options.

Note: If you uncheck Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware with Windows, by default the two boxes below will be grayed out as you cannot start the protection module portions of MBAM without having the program running with it.
