"Does the job"

October 17, 2011  |  By rocky

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 1.11

Pros

The main thing I've noticed with this is the ability to prevent programs from adding themselves to startup which is quite useful. There has been the odd times where it has picked up malware but in general it hasn't been required to detect them.

Cons

Has an yellow exclamation mark which is a bit annoying. Can only be fixed by upgrading to pro and enabling all the features.

"Hangs Up Firefox"

October 16, 2011  |  By JSM1963

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 1.11

Pros

Quick scan.

Cons

Doesn't seem to catch much. Ad-aware catches more. The question is whether what Ad-aware is catching is worthless. In other words, is iObit catching nothing because there is nothing worth catching.

Summary

Dogged by my Firefox browser hanging up on certain website and video all summer. The only way to get the browser working in the end was to reboot the computer manually using the power button. In the end it was this software causing the problem. May try it again and see if I can run it without "live" monitoring features. Malewarebytes gives me a black IM icon in the system tray and Ad-ware takes about 5-6 hours to do a full scan, so I may try this again and check the settings.

"detected and removed trojan"

October 15, 2011  |  By maribee

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 1.11

Pros

after several unsuccessful detection by other software IObit removed trojan

Cons

so far no cons

Summary

I knew there was a problem on my NoteBook as some software won't open. I HAVE a PAID ASC PRO version, Avast, CCleaner, glary, SuperAntiSpyware, none detected the trojan even in safe mode. Eventually I used IObit Malware Fighter,and bingo, it worked and removed 10 trjans: dropper, generic, downloade and agent!! Great, great free software

"runs smooth"

October 09, 2011  |  By adorabull

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 1.11

Pros

caught trojan.gen that other virus software missed

Cons

Some complained that it used a lot of memory no problem using xp pro 1 gig of memory So I guess that ( suggestion) if your pc is straddling the minimal amount it would run slow because of it during scan .. Also could be other reasons .. just my 2

Summary

I have been using free version fore about 6 days and am debating whether to go pro.. I mean you can not go wrong with the price . Especially when packaged together with ASC 4 . I will probably give it some more comparison test before I make a final decision

"Still not sure what is does"

October 05, 2011  |  By TonyBeGoode

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 1.11

Pros

Still looking for them

Cons

So called "real-time protection" seems to produce system drag. Some of the protection modes are vague and unverifiable. Doesn't update as often as a good security program should.

Summary

The only thing this program has done on my system is to block programs from making registry threads, etc., yet that module is turned off. (I already have a fine program called Threatfire that takes care of that). It has yet to catch anything; it has a module called "cookie guard", but I still get get cookies. So what is this program really for? My guess would be data-mining. My guess would be data-mining.(it wouldn't be the first time IObit as well as several other companies have used free software for this purpose) So the question is, is it worth keeping ? I think not, There are other anti-malware programs that do a much better job. It's kind of a shame: IObit is capable of good quality software development. Their Smart Defrag 2 and 64 bit Uninstaller (beta) are both excellent utilities. IObit should get out of the security program business, focus on what they do best , and clean up their act in the area of, shall we say, "unscrupulous activities". But that's just my opinion......

"Loved it so much I bought the Pro version"

October 04, 2011  |  By chezza777

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 1.11

Pros

Light on system resources, simple to use & finds malware others miss.

Cons

Free version's ads can be annoying and it also doesn't offer the real-time scanning, scheduling, etc that the Pro version offers

Summary

Work with computers cleaning up viruses all the time. The free version was so impressive that I took advantage of a sale on this and Iobit's Advanced SystemCare Pro and bought the Pro versions of both! Previously found Malwarebytes the best for malware missed by my antivirus, but when I started to find malware that Malwarebytes missed I was sold! I now recommend it to my friends & clients. Note: I also found that if u buy both you get 25% off.

"Doesn't seem to work with me"

October 02, 2011  |  By ZombieKing_54

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 1.11

Pros

Looks like a great security product with cloud based protection

Cons

It freezes my computer on startup (90% of the time). Can't seem to use it and the only way to get out of it is to manually shut down your system by pressing the power on/off button (ctrl +alt+ delete doesn't help), that can't be good for my computer.

Summary

Overall I am pretty wary of trying out this program because when I do, I can expect my computer to freeze. And the only way to stop my computer from freezing in start up is to boot my computer in safe mode and uninstall it from there. Even though this version is not working out for me I still hope I can use this program in the future as virus and malware are growing every second and every computer needs some sort of protection against them. Can't wait until Iobit update their Malware fighter version program

"Great product."

September 29, 2011  |  By CajunBilly

 |  Version: IObit Malware Fighter 1.11

Pros

I have found several trojans on my system that other software missed. It is easy to use and works great.

Cons

The Pro version of this should be in the Advanced System Care Pro.

Summary

Well worth your time to keep your system clean.
