Malwarebytes: A free malware removal software

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.

Malwarebytes Scan selection

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

Malwarebytes full version features

They have also added File Assassin, a tool to help delete locked files, whether malware infected or not

More tools

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.
