Thanks. I'm a bit confused though - I am running the free version of Malwarebytes but the log states:

Malware Protection: Disabled
Malicious Website Protection: Disabled
Chameleon: Disabled


"Malware Protection: Disabled" - disabled??? Am I doing something wrong please?

:-o

free version does not have protection.....only on-demand scan   :-\

Thanks guys, that must be a new development? - often used the free version in the past. Silly question perhaps but, if the free ware offers no protection then what is its purpose please?

 ???

Its used as an On-Demand Scanner to detect Adware and other junk.
Its also used by the malware experts here. :)

Its often used as an second layer protection together with another AV.

it is very good at removing the type of malware it target.....

if you browse any malware removal help forum, you will see that MBAM is the first tool they run.....then if still problems they continue with advanced tool you need training to use

OK thanks to all - how do I activate the 'on demand' feature please ~ that last scan I made seems to show all the detective features were disabled?

You just open it up and run a scan if you want, thats it then.

On-Demand is when you tell it that you want it to scan something.

On-Access is realtime protection.
