Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Editor's Review
Protect your computer with this state of the art malware application.
Malware is, unfortunately, a fact of life today. If you own a computer, if you surf the internet, share files with someone, transport data between the office and your home PC's, you're likely going to bump into a bug or two along the way. Some of them can be nothing more than a minor irritation. Most of them, however, can ruin your entire day, or worse, cause you to lose your job because you brought a virus to work.
The best way to protect yourself is with a virus or malware scanner. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a program that provides quality protection. It also comes in a free version that might be right for you.
"Have you ever considered what makes an anti-malware application effective?" asks Malwarebytes. It’s a great question. Malwarebytes has created an easy-to-use, simple, and effective anti-malware application. Whether you know it or not, your computer is always at risk of becoming infected with viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkits, dialers, spyware, etc., that are constantly evolving and becoming harder to detect and remove. However, you really can't run a computer without a malware scanner.
Pros: Quick scanning, Free version, free updates.
Cons: Limited scanning capabilities on the free version, real time scanning requires purchase.
Conclusion: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware seems like a decent application. The app is available in both free and pay models, but the free version does NOT come with real time scanning. If you want to run a scan, you have to actively run the program. There are other applications on the market, that are free, that offer everything that Anti-Malware does, but also offer's real time scanning. Depending on your personal preferences, you either will want to go with the paid version of this application or make a different freeware choice, as this freeware app is too limited to be effective.
