Editors' Review

IObit's latest version release brings Malware Fighter to 2.0 and showcases a much more eye-popping design that is more consistent with the modern look and feel of Windows 8.

You'll be greeted with four basic options: Scan, Protect, Update, and Action Center. Since version 1.7, IObit's latest design feels much cleaner and certainly more intuitive for the average user. The original overview graph that the previous version opened with is now tucked away.

Previously included features like cloud scanning and quarantine lists are still present, but reside in a more modernized settings panel to the right, labeled by monochromatic icons. Scanning settings and options exist as on/off switches, similar to those in Windows 8. Make no mistake: Version 2.0 is undoubtedly developed for touch screens.

Though this version is free, that also means it's ad supported. However, IObit has opted to remove all the extraneous social-sharing options, with the exception of a Like button on the bottom right; again, we've never used it but if you're really into it, then the option is there.

We ran a full scan to first test for any bogus claims of "threats" that come from detecting the usual temp files cached by your browser, as well as other common false alerts. IObit came out clean, which was a good sign. Scan speeds were also respectable given the state of our file system. You can also set custom scans and isolate Malware Fighter to look for threats just within your memory processes or select drives.

One minor issue we had with Malware Fighter was that it classifies the absence of Advanced SystemCare and Smart Defrag as "problems." There's no option to clear out these warnings, and choosing to fix them results in an automatic download and installation of IObit's other product offerings.

Compared to its previous version, IObit Version 2.0 is a step in the right direction despite its questionable labeling of ASC and Smart Defrag. But if you're looking for an easy-to-use, lightweight malware scanner, then Malware Fighter does the job.

"Above and Beyond the Others"

February 18, 2015  |  By dvdstone04

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.0.2.25

Pros

Having tried a couple other Malware programs the IObit Malware Fighter is the best.
The graphics along with the simplicity of information provided allowed me to learn what was being done in a speedy process.
The number of items scanned and cleaned are a definite +.

Cons

Not really a con but it does make you learn a lot about your computer

Summary

Having trusted CNET to try a couple different Malware programs you need go no further than IObit.
But I say this as an amateur computer user. I started in 1985 and have grown with experience and knowledge to be able to say that IObit is the best !!!

"Does what it says it will"

February 09, 2015  |  By AWM_Mars

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.0.2.25

Pros

Modern sleek programme that works fast and is very thorough. It often finds Malware left behind by other programs, which I now no longer use.
I use the IObit Malware Fighter as part of the Advanced SystemCare 8 Suite. The modern design and sleekness is shared with the many other useful programmes that can be found in this suite. As a standalone programme, it is worth having it on your system and will soon become an asset.

Cons

None that I have discovered in the past month I have been using it.

Summary

Modern, sleek and very thorough programme. You only need one, this should be your choice.
