    "Enormously effective despite the Malware kept trying"

    June 23, 2009  |   By Ziks511

    Pros

    I ran it 3 times, not because the program was inefficient, but because the Malware interfered with the first run. I was able to delete 5 items from the *partial* first scan, and on the next Quick Scan got all the rest. A CompleteScan found no more.

    Cons

    None that I've found

    Summary

    In the face of a very difficult piece of Malware that took over my computer and wouldn't let me do anything (not even exit) MalwareBytes caught the worst trouble on the aborted first scan (5 items), then caught all the rest (178 items) in Quick Scan Mode after I'd restarted the computer. Then I ran a Complete Scan which found nothing. I continue to scan using MalwareBytes, and find it quick, thorough and effective. Highly reccommended
