    "Avast misses a great deal"

    April 4, 2013  |   By GERRY RAINS

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.50.1

    Pros

    When I installed avast several years ago I wondered why I was getting virtually no positive. I uninstalled it and installed AVG. AVG picked up 6 positive. I did not remove them. I uninstalled AVG and installed Avira. It picked up the same 6 positives. However it only was able to delete four of the six so I uninstalled Avira and went back to AVG which eradicated the two files that Avira had found but could not delete. I stayed with AVG for awhile and then went with an entire suite, Kaspersky with malwarebytes running twice a week.

    Cons

    I have no complaints against Malwarebytes. I think that it's an excellent program.

    Summary

    It never hurts to "get two opinions" and I use Malwarebytes to check what Kaspersky may have missed. It usually picks up something. Of course I also use CCleaner which IMHO is one of the best free pieces of software on the market.

    Pros

    It hasn't wiped all of my files ...that's about it

    Cons

    Took 2.5 hours to run and then the free version couldn't fix anything ...Also straight after registry changes crashed my system ...maybe not their fault but I wouldn't again

    Summary

    I Wouldn't

    "Can't be beat for free!"

    October 11, 2011  |   By Youngfan75

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.50.1

    Pros

    I use the Verizon Internet Security by McAfee which is just OK. Also clean up after every browser session with CCLeaner. Mal-ware bytes usually finds things the others didn't. Would not be without it!

    Cons

    Really cannot think of any.

    Summary

    Use it with another anti-virus software package-get the best of both worlds.

    "It's better than I anticipated."

    May 30, 2011  |   By TVaraphant

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.50.1

    Pros

    I was surprised when Malwarebytes detected a virus, my installed Avast AntiVirus Free received "the ball" and took immediate action. What a surprised co-ordination.

    Cons

    Understandably missed real time guard.

    Summary

    It's must be 5 stars for a free antimalware.

    if you buy it , it might work.

    "Great Initial Clean up"

    May 30, 2011  |   By high_desert

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.50.1

    Pros

    Does a great job for a great number of Malware critters. Easy to use, updated on database often for current and new nasties, and does the job quickly.

    Cons

    While it catches most of the lines of infection and secondary anti-malware tool is recommended. Does not remove all root kits, and occassionally a more in depth removal process will be necessary.

    Summary

    Recommend it to customers along with a capable Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware program, Microsoft Security Essentials comes to mind. If you use the free version it will require manually running but if on a budget it will definitely do the job. Anything not removed by this program will required a level of expertise that may require a trained professional.
