    "Removed Win64/patched on first pass"

    February 4, 2014  |   By engineer7338

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit 1.07.0.1008

    Pros

    My anti-virus found but could not remove the virus. Downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-rootkit (MBAR)and ran it. detected and removed the virus on the first pass.

    Cons

    ran the program and left as it ran. I think the virus closed the program out before I came back the next morning. Had to sit there until it ran so I could tell it to remove. Only drawback I saw.

    Summary

    Well worth having a copy around.

    "Still a bit buggy. This is a Beta version."

    February 3, 2014  |   By Figaro14

    Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit 1.07.0.1008

    Pros

    The program appears to run a very thorough scan of one's system in order to detect possible Rootkits.

    Cons

    Twice I had problems getting the program to load all the drivers and begin scanning. I had to re-boot my computer in order to get it to scan. I suspect the program still has a lot of bugs in it.

    Summary

    Malwarebytes tends to be very thorough at finding problems. I look forward to the final version of this. It shows a lot of promise. Most anti-virus software programs allow rootkits to slip through so a valuable rootkit removal program that's easy to use would be a welcome addition.

    Pros

    Great product. A must have for any technician...!

    Cons

    None at all..

    Summary

    For 2 months now have been trying to restore my computer's ability to download any type of file. Every time I would attempt to download a file, the process would begin and then always ended with a box popping up saying that the file contained a virus and was deleted from the system. I tried RKILL.exe, TSKiller and a few more and none of them were able to fix the issue. Thank you, this is a great product and a life saver. I was about to reformat the hard drive and start from scratch!
