    "Best product for viruses out there"

    January 10, 2011  |   By ConstantCrisis

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.41

    Pros

    I got rid of the constant probem riddled Norton and MacAfee and now just have Malwarebytes and Spybot. The best protection team bar none. And the hackers know it. I had a virus so bad it wouldn't allow me to run Malwarebytes or Spybot & I know why

    Cons

    It is slow, but I'll take that.

    Summary

    Malwarebytes and Spybot. The best protection team bar none. And the hackers know it. I had a virus so bad it wouldn't allow me to run Malwarebytes or Spybot. Every time I tried to start Malwarebytes, I got a message that it wasn't compatible with OS and then I got flooded with new screen tabs in the hundreds. I finally figured out in task manager that the virus was looking for the execution files of the good malware detectors. I renamed those execution files and changed the registry names and MalWarebytes found the virus and eliminated it. Awesome program . My Norton was a pain in the rear, and ineffective to real threats to the system. I removed the Norton and installed Malwarebytes and Spybot, and they are a great team

    "Pretty Thorough"

    December 3, 2009  |   By KenJorB

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.41

    Pros

    Thorough. Easy to use and updatable.

    Cons

    A little bit on the slow side.

    Summary

    I used Anti Malware to take care of a particularly nasty Trojan that had infiltrated my laptop. The laptop had Norton Anti-Virus on it, yet even though it assured me my system was clean, it wasn't. The pop ups only disappeared after running Aniti Malware. I am considering buying the full version.

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.41

    Pros

    After running full scans with two other programs, Malwarebytes was still able to find 59 items of risk and eliminate them.

    Cons

    Took 12 hours to scan whole computer.

    Summary

    Definitely worth it, but carve out the time.

    "This is such an easy program to install."

    December 2, 2009  |   By oregonman

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.41

    Pros

    It is intuitive and thorough in it's search. It found malware that other programs and antiviruses did not. Somehow my internet connection sped up also. I would recommend this program in a minute

    Cons

    None that I can think of other than the time it takes to scan the hard drive.

    Summary



    Updated on Dec 2, 2009

    it saved my neighbors computer from doom......it crawled until he tried this and now he feels as if he has a new computer after the program found and dealt with 44 items of malware.
