    Glad yours is working. Mine, no go. Think I'm going to disable it for just manual use.

    BTW, how many Mb of memory is yours using? I'm around 300 most of the time.

    I had the same problem in the beginning, but then I chose weekly scan and that works okay:



    @CWGilley: According to Process Explorer: Working set around 400, Private bytes around 370.

    That's about right. After a re-boot it drops to 275 but increases up to 365, then it randomly drops down again. If I see that the total computer memory usage is above 20% (8.5% MalwareBytes alone) then I re-boot and it all drops to 13% (5.0% MalwareBytes alone).

    We both have 12Gb so I wonder how much is used by machines with 4Gb, 8Gb or 16Gb.

    At 321.9 Mb and Memory 30% right now. Gayle's hp laptop with 6 Gb runs at over 40% Memory when I have it run on there. It's a hog.

    From MalwareBytes User Guide I found this in the scheduled scan section:

    "Recovery Options allow you to recover from a missed task (e.g. your computer was off at the time a scan was to take place). A scheduled task if missed will run at its next opportunity as long as it is within the duration specified by the Recover if missed by selector and the Recover missed tasks checkbox is checked."

    It does not mention wake when Off (nor sleep) I think. My scheduled settings have been during awake time during the morning. I set it for a daily scan during sleep mode tonight.

    Do you have your schedule scan set to occur during sleep time? Could this be the reason why your daily did not work?

    This thing goes to sleep after 30 minutes idle time. Like me, it naps a lot. Probably won't change anything right now. Like I'd said earlier, I'm starting to question a need for it anyway. So manually keeping up with it may be just what I need to keep me busy.

    Looks like a benefit of CU update is MB runs on schedule now, nightly at 01:00. I'm going to say this is fixed.

    Thanks to all that contributed.
