    "Great if not used alone"

    June 7, 2014  |   By enscoosne

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    A combination of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot S&D, and SuperAntiSpyware keeps me safe and happy. I've never had trouble running all three together except that they run a bit slower that way.

    Cons

    I've not found an anti-malware, anti-virus, or anti-spyware that is completely effective on it's own.

    "v2.0 is a downgrade over original version DONT UPGRADE!"

    June 4, 2014  |   By tightdog1

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    -Still free
    -Good at finding adware/PUPS
    -Did I say its still free

    Cons

    Product has gone downhill, even from older 2.0 version. It crashes about 75% of the time when you try to clean after scan, and then you lose results and have to rescan and waste hours of your time. Doesnt really find any viruses or problems only, PUPS/adware. Full scan takes many more hours than it used to.

    Summary

    As I have stated before they are falling in the ranks now that people realize the software is going downhill. I am no longer a fan of the software and it is no longer in my tool bag of tricks to remove viruses. Use Emsisoft, Superantispyware and Avast instead.

    "Review for new version 2.0 only"

    June 2, 2014  |   By TECHCRZY

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    Unsure as of yet keeps bugging out.

    Cons

    I am running 8.1 retail x64.
    current problem is i keep getting orange warning icon in taskbar
    telling data bases are out of date so i click fix now and it acts like it going thru update process but doesn't so i exit program to shut it down but to my amazement it starts all by itself over and over again?

    Summary

    I was lucky enough to purchase malwarebytes original disk from amazon for $19.99 with a lifetime license. I'm sure the college kids are working on this after all they are some brilliant people.
    So for now im running version 1.75

    "Good Program, but..."

    May 31, 2014  |   By djdude1327

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    Program finds all malware and displays in the task bar.

    Cons

    Program finds the same "PUP" file every morning. When I sit down at my computer for the first time, Malware Bytes is displaying the warning on the right side of the task bar. Another issue concerns updating of the data base. Every two days, a task bar message pops up with "...data base files are out of date". When I click on "Update", nothing happens; when I click the red "x", the message disappears and then immmediately reappears again and again.

    Summary

    I still have the program, but I don't care for the above listed Cons....

    "Stopped working after 3 months"

    May 30, 2014  |   By FGSoule

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    Nice interface.

    Cons

    Not stable product. Slow email support.

    Summary

    I used the older version and it worked just fine. The new Pro version stopped working after a couple of months. No matter what I did I kept getting Windows "nasty grams" stating program stopped working and that was it. I uninstalled per MB instructions. Installed the latest version. Wha-Bam same error. Disappointed. Can not recommend until MB stability issues have been resolved.
