    "Okay, but installs software without permission"

    July 28, 2015  |  

    Version: IObit Malware Fighter 1.0

    Pros

    Covers the bases, but there are better options with much higher reviews by both pros and general customer base.

    Cons

    INSTALLS SOFTWARE WITHOUT ASKING. I - no joke - had to uninstall their idiotic start menu replacement app over a dozen times. I never told it to install, and yet it kept both re-installing itself and activating, without any sort of permission to do so. This, in and of itself, is unforgivable, especially for security software.

    Summary

    Don't waste your money. There are several other better options.

    July 16, 2015  |   By pikkis13

    Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.2.0.9

    Pros

    Very good browsing protection and malware detection program. The one-click 'fix-all' feature is great. Goes well with Advanced SystemCare.

    Haven't found anything wrong.

    Summary

    Malware Fighter and Advanced SystemCare are worth the cost.

    "The best free anti-malware program that I know of..."

    July 16, 2015  |   By TimPett

    Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.2.0.9

    Pros

    Easy to install and use (very user friendly) | Does not require much memory (never saw it use more than 50MB) | .Excellent browser (browser protect) and security (security guard) protection | I love the one-click 'fix-all' feature | Integrates well with Advanced SystemCare Ultimate

    Cons

    Would be nice if it were bundled with ASU.

    Summary

    I am not accustomed to paying for my system security software but after a few disasters with NU and MIS, IObit Driver Booster, Malware Fighter and Advanced SystemCare Ultimate are worth the cost.

    "IOBit Malware Fighter"

    June 27, 2015  |   By dantdors

    Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.2.0.9

    Pros

    I have used IOBit Products before and found them to be very easy to use, fast and thorough. When using Malware Fighter, I came across an issue with Norton saying that this product was infected with a "Suspicious.Cloud.9 threat". I contacted IOBit and they in turn promptly contacted Norton to have this false positive removed. I have found their customer Service to be phenominal!

    Cons

    Have not found any yet

    "DO NOT try to download per Norton."

    June 25, 2015  |   By charliejh

    Version: IObit Malware Fighter 3.2.0.9

    Pros

    Use to be good but is now unsafe per Norton.

    Cons

    I have Norton Security Suite from Comcast and when I tried to update iobit malware fighter Norton would not let it install and removed download as a very high risk. Chatted with Norton and they have stopped all iobit downloads as highly bad software. Norton rep told me that I do not need any extra antivirus software as it slows down the computer. Even WOT does not give iobit a very favorable rating. Norton comes with Comcast internet so I will test the waters. Also the only time that I have ever had a warning it was from Norton. I have used iobit products for years but they SNEAK in unwanted software but I was able to remove them but some were very hard.
