    "Caught malicious software that other
    programs missed."

    October 11, 2009  |   By downtownsf

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.41

    Pros

    It's FREE and it's a solid program that does what you want. There are no annoying ads popping up and it even updates it database regularly. You can't beat it for freeware, I'd say it's even better than most programs that you would pay for.

    Cons

    The free version doesn't automate anything for you, such as scheduled scans. The program doesn't run in the background to give you protection as you surf the net.

    Summary

    My computer was spitting out dead links to every-other website I went to and all of my browsers were acting funny, after seriously a couple days of trying to figure out what was wrong, downloading registry cleaners, another anti-virus program, and a optimizer, I finally downloaded malwarebytes and ran the full scan and it found the culprit. I hesitated at first on downloading it because the other programs had malware detection. Thank you malwarebytes

    "Effective. Does the job"

    October 9, 2009  |   By ben_myers

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.41

    Pros

    Succeeded in removing scam-ware AntiVirus Pro 2010 in several customer systems. A flash memory stick with the software is indispensable for installing the software on a screwed up system.

    Cons

    You need to plan how to install it, apply the latest updates, and then run in safe mode.

    Summary

    Rather than update files, it would be better to be able download the up-to-date software all at once. Sometimes a malware-laden computer is unable to apply the updates from the Malwarebytes web site.
