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.

"dont do it!!! still trying to correct its mistakes"

January 28, 2016  |  By leschal

2016-01-28 16:16:36  |  By leschal

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.4.0.9

Pros

fast download. that is a PRO, but that is the only one!!

Cons

It said, some of my drivers were out of date. STUPID ME. i said fix it. I dont know what happened, but my printer driver waas one of them. Now my printer wont work at all. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. re-booted a dozen times. And the computer wont recognize the printer. says it is offline. When i try to reinstall, it goes through the whole install process up to 99% and then says ERROR,could not install, reboot and retry. It has been 3 hours and it still wont work. Trust me... i tried everything a thinking person could think of. Unplugging everything, letting windows try to install the printer by itself. NOthing works. I called my friendly computer repair shop, who said bring in the printer and computer. HOLY CRAP

ALSO... my regular virus software, AVG PRO, seems to have been removed too. WHY.....
anyway.... if i see you click the download button, and going to find you, and hurt you.....!!!

Summary

Dont get it, dont buy it, dont try it.

"Malware Fighter 4 Beta"

December 10, 2015  |  By SisSnot

2015-12-10 13:36:34  |  By SisSnot

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.4.0.9

Pros

Found spyware that Avast and Superanti Spyware missed. As far as I am concerned its every bit as good as all of 10bit products

Cons

I cant find any at all, Superanti Spyware uninstalled,

Summary

10bit just gets better, ASC9 is a vast improvement over ASC8. Keep up the good work

"Bad - installs malware"

December 01, 2015

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.4.0.9

Pros

none vs free alternatives

Cons

doesn't work as well, google iobit and you'll find tons of people complaining about this company, and it installs other programs without your permission

Summary

go with one of the other alternatives, and if you've made the mistake of going with this one, good luck getting all of the malware off of your computer.
