Editors' Review

+

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a surprisingly effective freeware antimalware tool. It's a relatively speedy malware remover, with the quick scan taking about 8 minutes even with other high-resource programs running. The heuristics engine proved on multiple computers during empirical testing that it was capable of determining the difference between false positives and dangerous apps.

The app has some nice features rolled in, too. It supports multiple drive scanning including networked drives, context menu options including a scan-on-demand for individual files, and the FileAssassin option under the More Tools section for removing locked files. The interface is simple, but pleasant-looking and well-organized. Tabs live just below the oversized logo, with few options per tab to keep down the clutter. The installation process was fast enough, but interestingly offered up the well-kept changelog and an instant definition file update.

Do note that the real-time protection is restricted to the paid version, as is the scheduler for updates and scans. Overall, though, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a responsive malware remover that does what it should with a minimum of fuss.

"REALLY GREAT!!"

April 08, 2012  |  By theroger021

 |  Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.60.1

Pros

this is by far one of best program of anti-malware ever; and people don't give credit to it as they should, because it is really one of the best anti-malware programs out there.

Cons

none what so ever!

Summary

people don't know many things about the program, and they still would say "it is an okay program": it is a great program and it probably is better than what people think, because again people don't know how to properly use the program.
well people if you are infected with a virus or malware use this program and if you think that it wasn't enough use the chameleon program from malwarebytes because it could be helping you a bunch. learn how to use it than judge it you NOOBS out there.
here is a link for a youtube video that will help you understand better.

like this review and i will be posting more reviews like this to help you on understanding what programs can really do for you.
