    "found 68 threats and Quarantined them!!!"

    September 5, 2014  |   By killianred

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    Installed Norton 360 and it did not find the problems. A Java Update pop up on a Gardening site I frequent said I needed to Update Java to view the Bug Files. I updated. Hence, it downloaded 4 Software Programs Plus Java. Web Protect for Windows, an Instant Weather Software, Trovi, and another I can't remember now. This happened yesterday, and cost me nearly 6 hours of Research to get rid of them. Web Protect would not and could not be deleted via ANY means. It is set up like that. Malwarebytes found all of the bits and pieces of all of them, and an old one I thought I had deleted called My ScrapNook. All are gone now so I rate this high. From the other Reviews, I hope it continues to work well and protect my "puter" against all the crapola out there. We shall see. For now Malwarebytes is Awesome.

    Cons

    None that I can find so far.

    Summary

    So far I am glad to find this Program, it did what it said it would in my case. But I just downloaded it this morning and it found and cleaned my "puter" up very nicely.

    "Good program, but!"

    August 28, 2014  |   By rangerbob65

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    Easy download, easy operation.

    Cons

    Will not automatically update. Will get a message once a week that program needs to be fixed, then must go into site and download a new version. Does not have an online chat or contact phone number. Must submit a request ticket, you will then get an email reply that stays because of heavy request, response may take a couple of days. Have waited as much as a week for response. When received, and you respond to that message, you will wait a few more days. They need an online chat or contact phone number. Helpful forums are usually of no help.

    Summary

    Have used the program for a year, and just might look somewhere else if they don't provide better help.

    "Very good program although not 100% protection"

    August 25, 2014  |   By katherinegeorge

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    The portable version is very good, no need for installation.
    Very good for malware and spyware but not all of them.

    Cons

    No 100% protective against threat.

    Summary

    in general can be a very good program to support anti spyware and have protection.

    "Does not work against webssearches."

    August 23, 2014  |   By bellamahop

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    Like TSA, it helps to feed a delusional sense of security, where none exists.

    Cons

    DOES NOT WORK against recent threats. The paid version is completely owned by istart.webssearches. Unless you enjoy paying good money for something that doesn't work, find an alternative.

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    it seemed to block incoming stuff as indicated by pop ups

    Cons

    1 day after the update it is not working..Going to the site to install tells me I have it already..Going to try and un-install and it won't let me saying Their are missing files..So 1 day after update my Malwarebytes is not working (and my computer restarts every few minutes to hours too)

    Summary

    Not sure if I trust something that according to other sites that can be disabled by the very things its supposed to stop..

    "Been having problems with this software since Version 2"

    August 10, 2014  |   By DakotaSpirit

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    Use to be good, but something went wrong in version 2 creation, updater keeps corrupting etc etc...

    Cons

    I see by their forum many are having problems with this software since version 2 came out. Most of which are it does not want to update, freezes up, false positives and other things. I myself have had some of these problems including it not liking games or at least some games. I have fussed with it till I am turning blue and now I am about to remove it entirely from my computer as it still is not working as it did in version 1. Such as shame, but I am not the only one having these problems now and they have known of them for some months now.

    Summary

    For some it might work alright, but for many it does not. Try at your own risk, I am now tired of fussing with it for over 3 months now trying to get it to work correctly. One of the big problems is, the updater keeps corrupting and it happens with many people, among from what I see on their forum there are many varried problems with this new version 2. Don't fix it, if it is not broken, version 1 was fine!
