I cold boot daily. I don't let the computers on at the end of the day, I always turn them off.
Turn them off, how? If you don't unplug them from the wall or flip the master power switch on the back of the power supply (if it has one), that is NOT a cold boot. Shutting down via Windows Start menu or using the case's front panel power button simply puts the computer into standby. There is still +5Vsb standby voltage distributed across many points on the motherboard (hence "live" or still "hot", not "cold"). Only unplugging from the wall or flipping that switch removes even the standby voltage and only then is it "cold".

The lines between those are very fuzzy. Standby is a sleep mode.

Hibernate (typically only for notebooks) can mean a "cold" state, or a standby mode because the hiberfil.sys file is still created and can load almost instantly from standby or take a little longer from a cold start. In either case, you restart where you left off.

Note for PCs, there is Hybrid Sleep and is probably what you are doing on your PCs as this is the default mode.

Well it did it again this morning. It's the only computer that has the problem. (All 4 computers are plugged in and shut down nightly so whatever you want to call it, all 4 computers start from the same state in the morning when they are powered up.)

Not wanting to hijack this thread but at this point, all I can suggest is uninstalling, rebooting and reinstalling the latest version - then see what happens.

Truthfully, it isn't worth it to me. I'll just reboot when it happens simply because I want to see the tray icon. MBAM is running and I am protected as evidenced by the Task Manager.
