    "Do Yourself A Favor & Get It"

    November 20, 2010  |   By balmquist

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46

    Pros

    Small Memory Footprint In Relation To Other Anti-Malware
    Clean & Simple User Friendly Interface
    Constant Database Updates
    I Have Not Encountered Many Flase-Positives (The few I've had Were Expected Due to the way all heuristics engine's operate)

    Cons

    Really none except the fact that with the IP blocking module enabled I will get non-stop notifications of different IP's while using P2P software such as BitTorrent. However there is an easy fix of just turning off the tooltip notifications.

    Summary

    I deal with networks and computers everyday, It's my hobby as well as a part of my job and I can tell you that malwarebytes has a great track record of catching & PREVENTING malware before any of their "competitors". At first I was fairly skeptical due to them offering the scanner as freeware and being a relatively new company I have not heard of.

    Anyways, if you are searching for a stand-alone anti spyware/malware program I suggest you choose malwarebytes. I hope some people will read this because it will save you a lot of time and headaches. Just remember, you will need to also get an antivirus software. I suggest if you don't have one already to give COMODO Internet Security a shot. Like I said I used to shy away from freeware, but with malwarebytes (I purchased it to enable live protection, I suggest you to do the same, it is cheap compared to others & its a ONE-TIME purchase unlike the subscriptions of others) and COMODO I have yet to get any sort of virus of spyware infection and best of all it was $25 and could of been free if I chose.

    "Excellent Product"

    November 19, 2010  |   By Ambrogi

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46

    Pros

    Everything about it.

    Cons

    The free version is not automatic.

    Summary

    I was having so many problems with my computer; slow, "not responding" after retrieving 2 emails, pop-ups with my pop-up blocker on, and much more. The customer service rep from the maker of my computer suggested that I get this propgram. I took his advice and it solved ALL of my computer problems. I highly recommend it.

    "Highly Recommend. Purchase the full version!"

    November 18, 2010  |   By DTMOC

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46

    Pros

    Finds issues missed by any of the "big" name Virus packages. Full version blocks malicious IP addresses if connection attempts are made and does scheduled scans.

    Cons

    Scans take significant system resources - but this is NOT unique to this app!

    "GREAT! Saved me (yet again!!) from viruses!!"

    November 18, 2010  |   By rkhayles

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46

    Pros

    3rd time I've had to use the product, and 3rd time successful! Realtime updates for the newest malware attacks as well as the older viruses. Great instructions, easy to follow, and I LOVE the site name!

    Cons

    Worst thing is it takes a while to run if you have a loaded hard drive, but it's really a good thing!

    "Great software, great tech support, and great security!"

    November 17, 2010  |   By danerd9

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46

    Pros

    Everything!
    Now in 1.46 there is auto update scheduler to really specify how you want to update as well as well as engine improvements. It's still the same old MBAM, killing off the baddies of my notebook.

    Cons

    I advise scanning while using Office or something not resource hogging. The scan uses some memory.

    Summary

    I have been using MBAM since I 2004 and I was 12. I was pretty noob at the time, and I remember my first virus was mywebsearch toolbar with free smileys and zwinkies. MBAM killed and removed it off, as well as antivirus 360.

    Good times...
    I highly recommend it! It's legendary!
    I remember one time I had a false positive as it detected my Fraps uninstaller.exe has malware. I emailed them and they quickly responded. I was surprised! I have visited their forums and they help a LOT of people. :)
    Their company is really nice and friendly yet professional at the same time.
    These people are great, they made a wonderful product and help people out.

    If you have trouble installing PLZ do not rate MBAM!!!
    GO TO THEIR FORUMS!! MBAM WORKS IN ALL CONDITIONS AND ENV, Windows XP, Vista, and 7 whether 32 or 64 bit. THe problem is your malware is preventing anything good from being installed. They will help you all the way!

    THnk you MBAM for providing protection throughout my years. :) I bought their product. hehe. :D

    "Did the job"

    November 17, 2010  |   By Marvin0Martian

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46

    Pros

    Got rid of the Facebook malware my son downloaded.

    Cons

    Took a long time to scan my disk. Of course it could be the 500,000 files it had to check.

    Summary

    worked great. Always uninstall it so future malware can't co-opt it.
