    MBAM 3 "Scan for Rootkits" Off or On?

    The Default setting in MBAM 3 is "Scan for Rootkits" is off.
    Is it OK to use defaults or should the Rootkits be turned on for the daily scheduled scan?

    Hi. I turn it on, always, for all scans.

    Two locations exist for controlling MB3's optional rootkit scans. Each individual MB3 Premium scheduled scan can optionally scan for rootkits. Manual scans may also optionally search for rootkits. Although all of MB3's scan times have been dramatically decreased, optionally scanning for rootkits will cause any scan time to significantly increase.

    Some MB3 Premium users run daily scheduled scans without optionally scanning for rootkits while running a separate weekly/monthly scan with rootkit optionally selected.

    OK. I think I'll turn mine on. Because of the daily scan time and the fact I have a fast i7 6700 CPU it won't really impact me.
