    "Malwarebytes Is A Whole Lot Of Hype"

    September 12, 2012  |   By Several9920

    Pros

    This is a good software for beginners on a budget since its free.

    Cons

    This software is only great to those that are starting out unaware of anything better to use.

    Summary

    I got caught up in the hype of Malwarebytes. I thought it was so great in the beginning, But soon realized there was better software around. It never found anything which seems good at first, But when you know your computer is not acting right you want a program that will find a solution. Not one that will trick you into believing your system is clean when it is not. Also, when ever i would open Malwarebytes to scan, My firewall and peerblock software would show me where i was being UDP and TCP flooded. They were IP addresses from china flooding me, so Malwarebytes is obviously a way for hackers from China to have a direct link or access to your computer. The minute i uninstalled Malwarebytes the flooding stopped. Malwarebytes should only be used for maybe a month, then once your eyes adjust to the dark uninstall and move on to better programs so to speak.

    I realized after posting that this is the pro version not the freeware version. So maybe the experience is different when paid for i'm not sure. But i still say there are better software's around, I wouldn't dare pay for Malwarebytes.
