"A great anti-spyware product"

May 01, 2008  |  By lazy_ninja

 |  Version: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.11

Pros

Extremely on top of bleeding edge hostile software. Very effective at killing new Zlob variants and other nasties.

Fast scan*. Particularly compared to how slow Ad-Aware 2007 has become.

Doesnt give you the 200+ "cookies found" results. These are usually just found to boost numbers and make people feel better (in programs like SuperAntispyware, Ad-Aware 2007, Ewido, Spysweeper). They are removed by CCleaner or other temp file remover anyways.

Good update process, fast responding team if you post issues to the forums.

Cons

They arnt as solid on some of the older stuff, like CWWWsearch, etc. I find that also running scans with Spybot S&D is a good idea. But this is because I regularly clean machines that have old infections. For most systems the new stuff is whats relevant.

*Scan runs a LOT slower if you dont clear out temp files first. They should have a button to just do this.

"An average Antispyware"

April 23, 2008  |  By hogmeister

 |  Version: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.11

Pros

No problems downloading.Very easy to use.Similar to Superantispyware.

I tried the pro version.If you want a run of the mill antispyware,then this will do to add to your arsenal.

Cons

Scan took 50 minutes.A bit too long for my liking.

The scan found nothing, not even a tracking cooking.It is still in beta though.

"Really Great Program!"

April 20, 2008  |  By AcidBladeWar

 |  Version: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.11

Pros

I already use CounterSpy, a-squared Free, SpywareCatcher and AVG anti-spyware, but this program finds things that even these miss (although CounterSpy and SpyCatcher did get ones that Malware Bytes Anti-Malware missed). This is a great addition to my security applications.

Cons

No real-time shield, but SpyCatcher and CounterSpy already have this.

"Better than SpyBot - Actually removed SmitFraud"

April 19, 2008  |  By c674980

 |  Version: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.11

Pros

Cleaned up all the nasties left behind after I killed off SmitFraud - Spybot Search and destroy detected them and said it removed them, but they kept coming back. Malware bytes cleaned them off for good.

"The best way to find and fix Malware - "

"Doesn't stack up against others such as SUPERAntiSpyware, AVG, etc."

April 16, 2008  |  By Jeff_Wilson2005

 |  Version: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.11

Pros

It seemed to scan fast, but I don't know if that's a pro or not - it really detected nothing on a fully infected (neighbor's) system.

Cons

Missed 289 items that SUPERAntiSpyware Free found. E-Mailed Malwarebites support and never heard back so I scanned with SUPERAntiSpyware and my old reliable cleared up the infection!
