    "The Malware Slapdown"

    February 15, 2010  |   By tigerkitty2

    Pros

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, MBAM for short, kills 99.9% of all the badware on your computer.
    When nothing else works, MBAM will get it.

    Cons

    MBAM is so successful at removing malware, that malware writers blacklist it from running.
    Often you have to run a lesser known software like rkill to stop the malware process before you can run MBAM to remove the nasty software.

    Summary

    MBAM is an excellent product, but it is sometimes a victim of it's own success.
    The only suggestion i have for the people at MBAM is to do a once a week release of a product that when it runs, doesn't identify itself as MBAM.
    The already have a randomly named .exe you can run, but the processes started still refer to themselves as MBAM.
