    "Lab Tested as the BEST of all of the malware fighters."

    April 15, 2015  |   By fredg06

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.1.4.1028

    Pros

    Pcmag.com says this free program "Excellent results in malware removal tests"...gives it a rating of 4.5 out of 5. Pcmag does their own testing of programs.
    Easy to use interface, takes about 2 hrs on my pc for a complete scan. Last time it removed a Trojan in the registry.
    Easy to update the virus definitions, takes a few seconds.

    Cons

    One cannot schedule scans with the free version.,,,but, it's free.

    Summary

    The IOBit Malware Fighter has quite a reputation for not having any good tests performed on it's claims of being the best! Another review mentioned this also.
    Pcmag.com says it has not been tested by independent labs, had a terrible score on their on hands-on malware blocking testing, (1.3 out of 10), and zero-percent protection in malicious URL testing.
    majorgeeks.com says it's very good, but does NOT offer any testing of their own.
    Softpedia.com says it's just another free malware program that does not provide what they claim, by it's own testing.
    Thanks to the person who mentioned part of the above, which got me interested in doing my own research, before downloading IOBit Malware......the wrong one!

    "Not for Netbooks"

    April 4, 2015  |   By Wijono

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.1.4.1028

    Pros

    Used to work great in the previous versions.

    Cons

    Version 2.1.4 requires 1024x768 or greater screen resolution, meaning many netbook with screen resolution of 1024x600 will not be able to update to this latest version, SAD!!!
