earlier i decided to uninstall then reinstall the malwarebytes antimalware second opinion scanner i have on my system. this is the free version so offers no real time stuff only the ability to scan individual files or the whole computer. the uninstall-reinstall process went a bit badly, i tried the latest version of MBAM(2.0.something) but it didn't work well and seemed to have lost some of the features i use, the scan outputs were more confusing, the interface worse (in my opinion). i then, as i had the old installer exe file for the previous mbam version, uninstalled this new mbam and reinstalled Malwarebytes Anti-Malware version 220.127.116.110 (Version: 18.104.22.1680). i ran into some weird trouble there but after clearing temp files and a restart i was able to reinstall the old mbam version then update it's definitions under the "update" tab-->"check for updates". it seems to be working but i wanted to know if there was a way top verify it is scanning properly because after the bother involved in the reinstall process it's easy to imagine something going wrong. is there anything i can do just to check it is functioning correctly?
