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.

"Does it's job well!"

August 23, 2015  |  By joeylin70

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.3.0.8

Pros

IT works and its simple to use.

Cons

Not really a con since this lets you know it is active but you constantly have to click update on it. Suppose this could actually be a pro as it also means it is constantly fighting junk.

Summary

I have used many different virus/ malware fighters in the past and this whole collection is simply the easiest to use, control and actively understand.

"Never Again"

August 22, 2015  |  By Robert4732

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.3.0.8

Pros

Fast running. Nice GUI interface.

Cons

I had this and ran it and it said I had no infections. I knew I did because I kept getting 3 pop up ads everytime I went to aol, yahoo, or msn home pages. I downloaded Malwarebytes and it found 27 infections in one scan and got rid of them. Also I used Panda AV and it found them, when Ad-Ware AV did not. I'd stick with Malwarebytes and Panda AV, they are the best in my opinion.

Summary

See above please.

"A useful program to have running in the background"

August 08, 2015  |  By advisor0007

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.3.0.8

Pros

It has found a few malware problems since I have used it.
The interface is easy to use.
Offers many useful options to turn on or off
Getting auto updates

Cons

No way to disable it temporary apart from closing it down.

Summary

I use IO Malware flighter an extra protection in addition to using Advanced SystemCcare.
I know IO Malware fighter is working as it has alerted me to some malware a few times.
I like the easy to follow interface and being able to custom it to my needs by turning the many options off and on as needed. I set it to auto update itself so it never gets out of date.
I also liked the photos in the manual, making it easier to understand.
