How to Add to the Ignore List in Malwarebytes


From time to time, anti-virus and anti-malware software can incorrectly flag a legitimate program as malicious. For this reason, one feature to look for in an anti-malware scanner is the ability to add programs to an ignore list. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has this feature, so you can prevent a program that you know is safe from being flagged by the scanner.

  • Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware using the desktop or Start menu shortcut.

  • Click the "Ignore List" tab at the top of the window.

  • Click the "Add" button in the lower-left corner. A new window titled "Browse for Folder" appears.

  • Use the folder browser to locate and click the program that you would like to add to the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware ignore list.

  • Click "OK."
