MBAM is designed to remove malware with a Quick Scan that looks at the most prevalent places for active malware so scanning every single file on the drive isn't always necessary. Both do full heuristics, memory, load points and multiple other malware checks. However, MBAM stores each configuration in the current user's key so each user can configure it to operate differently. For comprehensive cleaning its best to do a Quick Scan on each user account so everyone's registry gets scanned for malware as well.
