This program has been running for 12 hours without interruption, and it is still chunking away but slower. That is it seems to pause 5-10 seconds before flashing up the next file. I don't think my data is unusually large at just over 1 million files, and my hard drives total 2,946 GB with each well under 50% used capacity. All other programs can run smoothly and Windows Task Manager Shows no program is stuck.

But if I need to wait for 1+ million files to be examined at 5 seconds each, it won't be done in my lifetime! What do I need to do differently?

Hi,
I'll put it this way, I ran it yesterday to see how it was. It only took 20 minutes +/- .

I will confess however to having a decent computer, I7 and a SSD C: which greatly helps with scans. I would concur with stopping it. As was mentioned it is a beta program and as with any Beta program it may fly on one computer and crawl or crash on a different computer. That is what Beta testing is for.

If you suspect an infection why not get some help with checking that system out. We have forums for that here in the Security section.

Good Luck
Roger

At about 18 hours Malwarebytes has run its course, finding 32 gotchas.

As to why I'm running a Beta copy, that's the only one I see. If there's a later version, I'd be happy to use it.
Where do I find it?
Or should I just go ahead and use what I got?

BTW, my machine is not yet ready to be a boat anchor. It is an HP Pavillian H8-1200c with 6 core and 3300 Mhz and 6 GB RAM, so processes most stuff reasonably promptly.

There is no non beta copy. The program is still in beta so......

18 hours for Mbam?

Since you did find things, it may pay to go to the Am I infected? What do I do? forum. Start a new message and put a link to here in that message.
If/When you do that let me know so I can close this message while they work there. We can always reopen here.

Good Luck
Roger

I think it was 18 hours for MBAR!! not MBAM !!
If you're having issues with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (MBAR) not covered on the "How to" Guide, you can always contact their Technical Support first, or report it in the Malwarebytes General Forum.
Also follow the post above from rotor123 -

Thank You -

You have posted here and you are already receiving assistance.

Please refrain from asking for help from others while you are being instructed by someone helping you.. Any modifications you make can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, following advice outside of that post may cause confusion for the Helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

If you followed any other advice already, please ensure you inform the Helper when they respond to assist you. This will help them know what has been done and they probably will ask for an updated log.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please start a new topic. If you have any questions, please PM me or another moderator.

Thanks for your cooperation.
Roger
