Does Malwarebytes Automatically Remove Infections

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I downloaded Malwarebytes…ran it, but was wondering, does it automatically rid the computer of malware if it finds it is infected? My understanding is it does.

Thank you for the good article on this program and for the link.

Appreciate your newsletters! Ellen

Dear Ellen,

When you run a scan with Malwarebytes, it will display a list of infected files and registry entries when the scan is finished.

What I usually do at that point is select all the infections, and then click the button that says, Remove selected” and Malwarebytes will automatically remove the infections.
