    "Malware Bytes is a no frills, no fuss, malware killer."

    December 10, 2012  |   By marto6912


    Great features, simple to use, antivirus scanner.
    File assasin tool gets the job done with no fuss at all.
    Flash scan in pro version scans memory, and auto run objects quickly,for example, two hundred thousand files in under ten seconds.
    Chameleon feature provides protected path to update centre, before running a very aggressive known malicious processes killer. Will get you out of sticky situations fast, without any fuss.
    Blocks malicious web sites coming in, and going out.
    Designed to run along side other anti virus programs without conflict.


    No cons here. Malware Bytes does what it says it is going to do.


    Malware Bytes is a great anti malware program, and has some excellent features, however, the program is not yet complete enough to use as the only source of anti malware detection on your machine, for example, Malware Bytes does not detect, and remove tracking cookies. Malware Bytes is a great second line of defence anti malware program.

    Go the licensed Pro Version, for a few dollars this anti malware program gives a big bang for it's buck.
