Malwarebytes: A free malware removal software
April 18, 2010 2 Comments
Malwarebytes is a very well known Anti-malware software. Here are the features of the latest free edition
The latest version of Malwarebytes Anti-malware 1.45 has some new features.
The paid version has an option for “Flash scan”, as i dont have the paid version i cannot tell you the advantage of it.
The free version does not offer real-time protection, but the paid version has:
- Real-time protection module
- Automatic Malicious Site protection
- Scanner and Update scheduler
- Priority Customer Support
They have also added File Assassin, a tool to help delete locked files, whether malware infected or not
So, here is my review of the free version:
Free, unbelievably one of the best malware removers at no cost.
Fast and efficient scans.
Less false positives.
No incremental updates, 4-5 mb database which is updated on a daily basis.
No realtime protection, they could have offered free “Realtime malware blocking” without “Malicious site protection” which i guess is a reason to consider buying Malwarebytes.
GUI isnt exactly pretty.
I would highly recommend that you download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware, if you already havent.
