    "Trial version started automatically with no permission."

    October 31, 2014  |  

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.3.1025

    Pros

    Works well.

    Cons

    Downloaded free version because I don't want to try the trial version. They force you onto the trial version by automatically activating it.

    "Year after year has caught and removed nasties"

    October 31, 2014  |  

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.3.1025

    Pros

    Removes even what the big name antivirus companies left behind.. and not just malware.. some real nasties messing things up royally.

    Cons

    They aren't considered to be a complete antivirus although there has yet to be something it missed.

    Summary

    I rate it far above AVG, Norton or Mcafee.. It has caught and corrected computer disabling malware that those others have missed year after year.

    "Saved my behind!"

    October 30, 2014  |   By sldrennan1

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.36

    Pros

    Had a nasty, nasty malware infection - tried everything else out there and was about to give up and do a full wipe. Tried Malwarebytes as a last resort. Reboot - problem solved! Worth every penny,

    Cons

    Honestly have no cons to report.

    Summary

    Outstanding product!

    "Still crashes"

    October 30, 2014  |   By howardferns

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.3.1025

    Pros

    It is capable of finding bad stuff, and sometimes picks up things that Super Anti-Spyware doesn't - but only if you have the patience to get it working.

    Cons

    A long time user of MBAM, I have it installed on a desktop pc and a netbook. The latest update has not fixed the problems I was experiencing before. It still crashes during updating. If I start the program again it will then carry on - if I am lucky, because sometimes it will then crash a second time. Then when I actually get the scan running at last, and toddle off to do something else, I come back after some time to see what it has found, only to find that it had crashed during the scan. And this happens on both computers, not just one of them.

    Summary

    In a nutshell, very disappointing. What was once an excellent piece of freeware I now have a word for that I wouldn't like to repeat on here. Two stars because it is better than nothing.

    "Found buried infection"

    October 27, 2014  |   By batsdude1

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.3.1025

    Pros

    Easy and found an infection that had gotten past Avast's scans and installation monitoring.

    Cons

    None yet that I can see.

    Summary

    Very effective scan and removal system. It found some spyware, as well as the aforesaid infection. I could not get my Avast to start upon boot no matter what I tried, and could not get Windows Defender to start either. This took care of all of it. HIGHLY recommended!

    "Fantastic Product"

    October 20, 2014  |   By Jonathan-Lewin

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.36

    Pros

    I am Professor of Mathematics at Kennesaw State University in Georgia. I heard about Malwarebytes from one of my students and installed it on one of my machines. The results were so immediate and so outstanding that I at once upgraded to the Premium version.
    Malwarebytes found and fixed several problems that I had on several of my computers. My regular security protection had given me no help at all.

    Cons

    None but I agree with other reviewers who have called for more flexibility in licensing.

    Summary

    ""Upgraded" version is more hassle than the Malware!"

    October 9, 2014  |   By Kamkla

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    In theory, it works to get rid of Malware. Can't really attest to that, since I've only had it 2 days.

    Cons

    Relentless "Upgrade Me" Demands! Opens a pop-up window predicting doom if I don't, and while it allows me to close it, it just pops right back up, every time!! Won't quit, and there's no way to shut it off that I can find.

    Summary

    I'm seriously considering deleting it, after only 2 days. I thought it was odd that within 24 hours of install, it was demanding an update, but wrote it off as a one time thing, so I allowed it. Now, it seems this will be an ongoing, and never-ending hassle, and frankly, I just don't think I'm that big a target, that I MUST be upgraded every single second. And I certainly don't like the relentless DEMANDS that I must do it - and DO IT NOW!!!, or skip ever seeing the full screen on my computer, ever again!!! What's up with that?!

    "Best malware at any price"

    October 6, 2014  |   By HomeTheaterDave

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.2.1012

    Pros

    1. The paid version is better then the free version - just pony up and buy it, you won't regret it.
    2. I used it to find and destroy 144 viruses/malware that were on my Mom's laptop that Norton and Symantec did not find!!!

    Cons

    None, this is just about perfect.

    Summary

    This malware finds virus' that the more expensive malware's can not find.
