An essential program for removing any threat and for remaining protected


Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is, as its name suggests, an antivirus program which especially protects you against spyware - and it is also free. In fact, it is at the top of the rankings in this category for its effectiveness in seeking out any threat that your computer may have. It carries out fast scans and the download and the installation are extremely smooth (less than five minutes at most). However, we have to mention that it is not frequently updated which is a necessary feature for any virus protection software. However, it is included in the PRO version, along with the ability to detect new and unknown malware by “Heuristic Detention”.

It offers three different kinds of scan (quick scan, full one and a flash scan), giving you the option of choosing the one you need performed each time

It doesn’t top the charts for its interface design as it’s a bit strange. When you open it, you will directly see the Scanner tab, which offers you eight different options. These provide you with different functions, from the updater to the FileAssassin, which deletes locked files. This free antivirus also has real-time protection, so it will be continuously fighting against any virus, malware or spyware. You can also access other options, such as scanning logs or to easily alter the program settings from the main interface, and if you need to, you can check for relevant information about the program just by clicking on the 'About' tab.

Other characteristics

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, or so-called MBAM, is used mainly just to scan your computer. It’s really efficient in doing so, and it offers three different kinds of scans: quick scan, a full one, and a flash scan. As you can imagine, the first one is just used when you have recently scanned your computer and you just want to be sure that everything is still alright. The full scan is especially recommended at the beginning of the program installation, when you download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and you run it for the very first time. The last one, the flash scan, is especially used to analyze the memory.

Based on its performance, we have to say that it’s a very speedy malware remover. It doesn’t take more than 7-8 minutes doing a quick scan, even if you are using other high-resource programs at the same time. On top of this, it supports multiple drive scanning such as networked drives, FileAssassin option and context menu options which includes, for example, a scan-on-demand option for locked files.
