    Any info would be appreciated. A friend asked me and I have no idea. How do you set up MBAM to start a Threat Scan 10 minutes or so after start up with out manually doing it? Thank you

    "Automated scheduling" in MBAM's "Settings" menu, but that is unavailable in MBAM free.

    Thanks but this is pro and I understand you can schedule but if you miss a scheduled scan it does not do one to make up for it on start up.

    CowboyPhil, I have MBAMpro, you're correct! So, what I did was to schedule another scan later in the day:
    MBAM-Prmm, Rltme updts, Updts/ThrtScn, 0500, Dly, IfMssdNoScn
    [if I boot later, Threat Scan will not run until next day's 4:30am coldboot/startup]
    MBAM-Prmm, Rltme updts, Updts/FllScn, 1700, Dly, IfMssdNoScn
    [this 5pm scan normally get run about 3-5 times a week]

    Correction/Addition: RetiredGeek's post is correct! One can schedule either a hourly, daily, weekly, monthly scan[s].

    12/28: After reading RetiredGeek's later post, I redacted my earlier comments concerning finetuning MBAB's scheduling.
    [I'll experiment with MBAB and set schedules...

    Select Daily then Set Recurrence to 2 days should get you Mon-Wed-Fri-Sun-Tue, etc based on the day you set it up. HTH
