Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Free)
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not a free trial – it’s free forever. The system is very basic and more or less a teaser for Anti-Malware Pro, but it can detect and remove malware with three simple features.
Anti-malware and Anti-spyware scan
Malwarebytes “Chameleon Technology,” to prevent certain malware from blocking Malwarebytes itself.
Malware removal, using industry-leading technology
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro (.95/1 PC/forever)
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro comes with everything the free version contains and more. Additional features include: malicious website blocking; real-time heuristic detection to prevent new and unknown threats; a quick “flash scan” mode; and, a scan/update scheduler.For the money, Anti-Malware Pro is definitely one of the more affordable antivirus software packages on the market. Most comparable products cost about twice as much and limit licensing to just one year, whereas access to Anti-Malware Pro is yours forever.
Another perk to using this software is that it is relatively minimalist, meaning it comes only with what you need and isn’t overloaded with features that will slow your computer down. This makes it a great choice for small business owners who know their way around the web, but who want a little extra layer of protection, just in case.
Malwarebytes is part of an increasing and positive trend in which successful software developers offer a downloadable version of their product for free. In the world of software, they call this freeware – and in most cases it doesn’t bite. For this, we rank Malwarebytes a 4.75/5.
