Reliable Threat Scanner to Add to Your Defensive Toolkit

I've been using Malwarebytes for perhaps over 7 years now and have always found it as a reliable tool in finding pups and other infected files especially within the registry. I've made Malwarebytes, the free version, an essential part in my PC cleanup toolkit for both personal use as well as when i'm assisting friends and colleagues.

Pros

Malwarebytes' threat scan, included in the free version, has always done well with detecting harmful PUPs/PUMs and trojans. Its easy to view post scan analysis for quarantine is great to view the malware's location and type/name (for looking it up online).

Cons

Within the past, year or two, the free version of malwarebytes, specifically its interface, has been pushing the premium version more than I like. It gives the program a feeling of less worth. I believe the paid version is too costly, yet the Free version scan is still a powerful standalone tool. I often suggest Malwarebytes for others to use, or use it infront of others to help scan their computer. The large "Real-Time Protection premium only feature on the main screen, the activate license bar on top, the all caps "FREE" word on top, and the many many locked settings discredits it's free version authority.

Enterprise grade real time security

Overall Malwarebytes has keep us safe from ourselves, which is invaluable. It's easy to deploy and easy easy to manage, yet it evolves as threats evolve.

Pros

The control panel for admins is excellent, I can group clients, define policies and get an overall view of the threats facing our organization.

Cons

The process of purchasing licenses was a little kludgy but it's gotten better over the last couple of years.

Review of malwarebytes

Overall, I felt there were better options for my devices.

Pros

It seemed to protect my computer well overall. Didn't have any issues during the trial period.

Cons

I thought it was a bit expensive. Also the emails during the trial period were a bit much. Too many and to pushy.

Good affordable software for catching malware!

Overall, I really like Malwarebytes, and it's my go-to software to run for added protection to my workstation and devices. A must have if you're security conscious when connected to the web.

Pros

Malwarebytes is very easy to install and run system scans with, and has proven itself to catch malware that Windows Defender did not.

The real time protection is a nice feature as well, since browsing the Internet is dangerous. It can catch ransomware, and "drive-by" attacks.

Also, I like their licensing and that it's a multi-platform product. A yearly license is for 3 devices is very reasonably priced so that I can protect my desktop, laptop, and phone without breaking the bank.

Cons

The real-time protection can be very resource intensive at times, even on my 7th gen Intel quadcore with 16GB ram and 2GB NVIDIA card. I've found myself having to close Malwarebytes when running Photoshop in order to open files. I never ran in to this problem running just Windows Defender or Spybot, and I am considering doubling my RAM now.

And also, the software has had conflicts with Windows Defender, but not so much in recent versions. I think Malwarebytes still operates as a nice complement to the native Windows protection.

Good scan, but not deep enough

Pros

Auto-updates, regular scanning, auto-quarantine. It can be used with an antivirus.

Cons

The detection isn't that good. I used another software immediately after running Malwarebytes and it found 3 that Malwarebytes missed.

Best antivirus software

Pros

I have been using MalwareBytes on both my old computer, and instantly again when I updgraded. Their key activation feature quickly helped me migrate by disabling it on the old one and enabling it on the new one.

The pros about this software would mostly be the up-to date database of every virus and malware, which also includes web protection. I have numerous times been stopped from accessing websites that would otherwise be shady, and in the rare case when I might be sure that the website is secure, it only takes two clicks to add it to the exception list.

Cons

The few cons are some technical difficulties with the software a few times. It sometimes doesn't show the MalwareBytes icon in the taskbar, even though it is correctly running. There was a problem once where Malwarebytes took a lot of memory, but it was patched in less than a week!

Excellent. Worth getting the full pro version

Pros

Catches malicious ads/software and blocks possible hidden links to risky website. Works very well and is routinely used by IT pros to scan computers. Pro version comes with real-time alerting

Cons

Only real complaint is around false positives (well maybe they are false!). I've had it block links/content from generic sites like CNN, but that could also be due to 3rd party ad issues. Not a huge problem, but worth mentioning.

Easy to use and free, but ineffective

I downloaded Malwarebytes for my Mac because I had ad viruses that would continually ask for permission to control my computer and would also redirect me to various sites while browsing the internet. The interface for Malwarebytes was very simple and easy to use. I ran Full Scan and a few viruses were quarantined and deleted. A few days later, the same problems arose, an anonymous third party was asking for control of my computer and I was being redirected on websites. I again ran a scan and viruses were deleted and quarantined. This continued for a few weeks, which finally got me to download Bitdefender. After I scanned with Bitdefender, the viral activity ceased permanently.

Pros

Malwarebytes is a free, has a smooth interface, and is easy to use.

Cons

It did not remove all the malware on my computer.

Malwarebytes is just one of the anti malware apps I always use

Pros

Malwarebytes is just one of the anti malware apps I always use. I have had it installed on both my desktops and my tablet forever no complaints it auto scans for malware and lets you decide what to do with the harmful information it finds before proceeding. There is a free version and its very user friendly. When it expires I just uninstall and reinstall

Cons

I wish it had a lot more options available that are specifically for keeping my devices updated, and always optimized. Other than that no complaints it does what I expect it to do.

Best Virus/Malware Protection I've ever used

Pros

The main thing that I love about malware bytes is that it does not root itself deep into the operating system unlike other AV software and it is easily able to detect PUP and PUM files as well as trojans. If you have the paid subscription, you even get real time protection which usually prevents the PUP/PUM file from getting onto the computer in the first place.

Cons

I do not have any complaints about this software.

Great tool to help protect your PC and/or remove a malicious software

For me it helped save my PC, so I would highly recommend this software.

Pros

A few years back I was using Webroot to protect a PC and some malicious software got past it and infected the PC. I used Malwarebytes to work thru, remove, and restore the PC. I am a big fan of this software. It did take a lot of work to get things corrected but I was able to get the PC back up and running when I thought it was not possible.

Cons

I can't really think of any. I do still use Webroot but use it with Malwarebytes and have had great success.

Solid, if imperfect, malware cleanup

I have always used Malwarebytes for incident response with clients. It works well cleaning out browser hijackers and spyware. One of my clients got the enterprise version for mass deployment and management of antimalware. It works well for the most part, but there have been a couple infection strains that are only held at bay by the website blocker, or are removed only to come back the next day. On top of all that it's a bit pricey. It saves me time, sure, but it also requires me to invest a lot of time in chasing down what it misses.

Pros

Does a good job at cleaning up most common, low-level malware infections, and is my go-to first response tool

Cons

In enterprise deployments, it has been found to critically miss a few common infections, which return over and over again.

A Legitimately Useful AV Product With Web Protection

Pros

This is honestly one of the first pieces of software I install on new computers now. Its default schedule is to scan once per day, but you can change that to whatever frequency you want. It scans for malware (including rootkits, malicious registry edits, and adware), and allows you to quarantine or create an exception for whatever files it detects. The premium version also protects you from visiting malicious sites; I've been saved on a couple occasions by it blocking a site that I was being automatically redirected to.

Cons

If you're using the free version it can be pretty intrusive with trying to get you purchase the premium, with frequent popups in the lower right hand corner of the screen. The premium, I feel, is actually worth it, as it's probably better than most other professional tools out there, but if you're not looking to spend money it can be quite annoying and can't be disabled.

Malwarebytes is a lightweight shield for any internet-connected devices

Protect my research data from being stolen/wiped out by ransomware. Piece of mind when browsing the web. Safe from drive-by-download attacks.

Pros

Written by an UIUC alum! Proud of Illini.
Lightweight in both CPU consumption and malware signature updates.
Has a version for Chromebook which is very cool.
Blog posts about how malware work under the hood. Malwarebytes knows what it is doing.

Cons

Sometimes it quarantines wrong files since I work in network security, there are many sensitive files that may look like malware but they are not. It should have an option to exclude certain file/folder from being quarantined.
