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.

"Great product thats protected my family PCs for years!"

March 26, 2015  |  By matthewstabile

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.0.2.30

Pros

Great support, I have always been contacted in less than 2 hours.

Doesn't waste system resources, can be set to only scan the computer when It is idling.

I have never been a victom of a threat while this program was running.

Cons

It notifies you a lot when installing new thing but after a while it learns what to allow and what to block

"adds nothing but false sense of security"

March 21, 2015  |  By ChoiceVoice

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.0.2.30

Pros

-pretty interface.

Cons

-is untested by any of the independent testing labs. how do you know something works, you check the many testing labs that have checked it for consumers and verified it does something. this product has never submitted itself for evaluation to prove that it works.
-pc mag does do their own testing and evaluation. here's what they said:

"Malware Fighter detected just 14 percent of the samples and scored 1.3 of 10 possible points, ...The lowest score among products tested"

meaning, it is proven to not work. use something that does.

Summary

pc mag rates it 1/2 star out of 5 and calls it dismal. here's their conclusion statement on this product:

"Forget This Product
As attractive as its user interface may be, IObit Malware Fighter 3 Pro is without a doubt the worst anti-malware solution I've seen."

"Installs other programmes from same developer"

March 11, 2015  |  By LischenM

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.0.2.29

Pros

Might work, cannot judge if it kept malware at bay.

Cons

Installs other programmes from same developer through asking sneaky questions. (Along the lines of "detected 5 problems, do you want to solve them" >> "solve" then means you agree that a whole bunch of other programmes are installed, not that malware is removed...)
