    Great Malware System

    Installed Malwarebytes on my computer which has a major Internet Security Suite installed and layers of security and ran the first Malwarebytes scan. The scan checked 350,000 files on my computer in 22 seconds, it is fast. Interestingly Malwarebytes detected 36 PUP.Optional.Spigot.Genric (see pictures below) and marked for quarantine. A PUP is a “Potentially Unwanted Program” which has been installed without your knowledge or a program you installed yourself. PUP’s from my view are a mixed bag which Malwarebytes goes after aggressively, and I like that as there typically many that I do not want. If you run the scan and detect PUPs I would suggest checking what the programs are before hitting the nuke (quarantine) button. Scanned the quarantine list and did not see anything that concerned me, so quarantined all 36 and have had no bad side effects. If you do have an issue you can restore the program from quarantine. Have been running Malwarebytes along side my Internet Security Suite for over a week now and have not noticed any noticeable speed hits, like that. After the first scan over a week ago have not detected any further PUPs loaded onto my computer. Just ran Malwarebytes a few minutes ago for my review and found that the system needed updating. That was bit surprising as the computer had been running for about three hours. Not sure if did not check for an update (which it should if it is running in the background) or if there had been a new update released since it last checked? I like Malwarebytes and the extra protection, it brings to our system, it is a Very Spooky world out there and protection is a Good thing. Malwarebytes appears to be a tightly programmed system which leaves small footprints (usage) on your computer, it is fast and not noticeable running in the background. The Reports are easily accessed and will report when Malwarebytes has Blocked Websites (another very good thing), scan results, etc. The reports are easily understandable. Has an excellent range of settings for managing the system and customizing to your needs. If you are like me and want to plug the holes to your system give Malwarebytes a spot on your computer. Thumbs Up.

    Ive used the free version of this software alongside Norton Security, and the two programs have played nicely together for me across several different devices for quite some time. Malwarebytes has always been very light on my system, and there did not seem to be a significant change in background load when running it with Norton, so I was very confident that running the full Malwarebytes program alongside Norton would go as smoothly as it has. Both programs seem to readily detect certain things faster than the other, so between both programs, my computers (especially my gaming laptop, which I use most often these days) seem to actually run better with both programs running. Malwarebytes is a bloodhound when it comes to web surfing/web protection and live threats, and does so without all of the crazy toolbars and add-ons that Norton typically tries to install on browsers. On the other hand, Norton has been excellent over the years at quickly blocking or catching registry attacks and preventing overall system instability, no doubt due to how extensive the Norton network is and the PC threat data analytics attached to that. Malwarebytes uses a live behaviour-based threat ID system that seems to be benefiting my devices in a way that Norton and other programs have not done to the same degree thus far. Norton identifies new threats fairly quickly, but sometimes has to clean them up after the fact since it does not identify threats in the same manner as Malwarebytes does, whereas Malwarebytes may lack the data of Norton but more than makes up for it with the behavioural analytics it employs. I'm giving it a 4 since I have yet to solely depend on Malwarebytes alone, but it is a very strong 4 since it has an intuitive user-friendly interface, is not a resource hog on my devices, and since Ive completely and regularly seen its unique comparative benefits in action. I definitely recommend Malwarebytes, although from my perspective, it seems to work best in tandem with a compatible antivirus program.

    Malwarebytes 3.0 is a must have software for PC. setup is quick and easy. It will install the latest version to protect your computer from malware and fake sites. By default, all options were enabled to protect PC at most. I did a scan for entire PC and found out that there were some infected files which was never found by Windows Protection. It deleted all infected files and PC is running much faster than before. Malwarebytes anti-malware defense protect your PC and online experience. It will intercept and block exploits that use bugs in popular programs to compromise your computer. It's malicious website protection technology detects and prevents contact with websites, URLs and IP addresses containing dangerous content. This software is very easy to use and will keep you protected for any attack on your PC.
