Malwarebytes 3 is a whole new program that incorporates both out home consumer offerings, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. It has the abilities to do remediation and also gives Exploit protection. Both of those are combined are a strong combo but we also added in our latest technology Anti-Ransomware. This makes for a very powerful tool for protecting your computer. With all these new features, did the scans change?  No, the scan types are the same Threat Scan, Custom Scan, and Hyper Scan.



  • Threat Scan - A comprehensive scan searching for malware in the Registry, Startup, Memory, and in the File System.
  • Custom Scan - Just like the Comprehensive scan, but you can configure it to how you want. Which drive, where to scan, what to do with detections, and How deep you would like to scan.
  • Hyper Scan - A quick scan of the Memory and Startup Objects for any active Malware threats.
