    "The best companion for my antivirus software!"

    December 27, 2012  |   By IamtheComputerScientist

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.65

    Pros

    1. It blocks any kind of suspicious malware trying to attack your PC.
    2. Easy to use interface.
    3. Faster in detecting and blocking internet viruses than the antivirus software installed with it.
    4. Prompts the user to update its definitions and the program version itself.
    5. Cool new icon and interface for the version 1.70.0.110

    Cons

    1. Not that fast during a cold boot (the first time you open the software after startup).
    2. The diaglog window that appears during an update hangs most of the time.
    3. Slow scans.

    Summary

    Malwarebtyes Anti-Malware is the best companion for an antivirus software, especially for the free antiviruses around. It blocks what most antivirus softwares miss most, and a great internet protection.

    "So far, The best malware remove ever !"

    December 23, 2012  |   By SMIDJ

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.65

    Pros

    It does what it's supposed to do, remove malwares :)

    Cons

    So far, Nothing problems with this, I suggest them to make a trial (30-day) version of the full program so we can try the full version within 30 days :)

    Summary

    I have a cracked version of Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus and I know there's a virus regarding with the cracker that I used, I tried to detect them with my current Antivirus but my antivirus that I'm using can't detect the virus file, Then I called my friend for information regarding the virus and to remove it my friend said to me to use "Malware bytes Anti-malware" and I came to this site to find it and I installed and scanned my user, I got 3 malwares that my other antivirus doesn't detect, I cleaned it and repeated with my other 3 users and now, my computer is safe from malware and will not get malware anymore so I'll let the program sit on my computer and I'll use whenever I feel I've downloaded a suspicious files :)

    "Malware Bytes is a no frills, no fuss, malware killer."

    December 10, 2012  |   By marto6912

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.65

    Pros

    Great features, simple to use, antivirus scanner.
    File assasin tool gets the job done with no fuss at all.
    Flash scan in pro version scans memory, and auto run objects quickly,for example, two hundred thousand files in under ten seconds.
    Chameleon feature provides protected path to update centre, before running a very aggressive known malicious processes killer. Will get you out of sticky situations fast, without any fuss.
    Blocks malicious web sites coming in, and going out.
    Designed to run along side other anti virus programs without conflict.
    Inexpensive.

    Cons

    No cons here. Malware Bytes does what it says it is going to do.

    Summary

    Malware Bytes is a great anti malware program, and has some excellent features, however, the program is not yet complete enough to use as the only source of anti malware detection on your machine, for example, Malware Bytes does not detect, and remove tracking cookies. Malware Bytes is a great second line of defence anti malware program.

    Go the licensed Pro Version, for a few dollars this anti malware program gives a big bang for it's buck.
