Malwarebytes Antimalware is the best Anti-malware tool available to get rid of  the toughest Malware from your system if it gets infected even though your system had a Good antivirus installed. As most of you know that Malware is written to target critical and sensitive information like your keystrokes, logins, passwords, address book, data, credit card information. Malwarebytes  Antimalware helps you fight these Malware and keeps you safe.

Developer Description

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO monitors every process and stops malicious processes before they even start. The Proactive Protection Module keeps your system safe and secure with advanced heuristic scanning technology. The comprehensive Threats Center keeps you up-to-date with the latest malware threats.

Free Edition Features

  • Advanced Malware Detection and Removal
  • Industry Proven Clean-up Technologies Eradicate Existing Malware
  • Rapid Response Malware Database and Heuristics Updates
  • Access to our Expert Community and Knowledgeable Support Team
  • Multi-Language Support (currently 35 and counting!)

Pro Edition Features (Additional to Free)

  • Real-Time Active Malware Prevention Engine Blocks Known Threats
  • Heuristic Protection Prevents New Zero Day Malware Infections
  • Malicious Website Protection Blocks Access to Known and Zero Day
  • Automatic Priority Updates and Scheduled Scanning
  • Blazing Fast Flash Scans

Even the free edition is good enough for most users who have a good antivirus engine installed on their System. You can just use it as an on demand scanner as or when required. You can just run it periodically in a week or two weeks to remove any malware that successfully bypassed your antivirus. It can be installed with your existing Antivirus solution without any compatibility or performance issues.

Installation and updates

The installation file is less than 10 MB which is much less than any other security product available. After the first installation, it will update its definitions from the web server if you have a working internet connection. The updates too are not that big and usually in the range of ~5MB. You can just update the definitions and then you can start using it. Every time you run it, it will check for updates available.

MBAM Scan (Three Types)

It comes with loads of features as mentioned above. There are three types of scans available Quick Scan, Full Scan and Flash Scan. The best one is the Quick scan which even though scans your system for any malicious software pretty quick. If you want a deeper scan, you can go for a full system scan. If you want to just have a look on the memory objects and auto runs on your system, you can do a flash scan and it will scan all applications running inside the memory at that moment and any auto run applications to find out if any malware is running too.

Delete Locked Files

It also comes with a additional tool called FileASSASSIN which can be used to delete files that are locked in one form or the other  and you can not delete these files using the normal conventional method.

Real time Protection

When you enable the features of Pro Version, you can get additional features. Even with free version, you can enable them for a month by changing it to trial mode. Pro version comes with a real-time protection module which means that your it starts running on your system in background just like your Antivirus. It keeps tab on anything bad that can happen to your system by watching out for malware.

Performance and Memory Footprint

Even when the real-time protection runs, no performance issues were detected and it ran with minimum system requirement. I tested MBAM on a system with just 1 GB of RAM along with Norton Antivirus 2012 installed on it. It ran smoothly without affecting any normal operation on the system.

Schedule Scans and Updates

You can use the Scheduler option to run a scan whether you need a full, quick or flash scan on a regular interval. You can even customise it on how to handle the scan and how to treat the threats if any, found during the scan.

Scanning Speed

Full scan on the C drive of my test system with about 50 GB of data on it took almost 1 hour to complete. Keep in mind, it has just 1 GB of RAM and I was working on the system simultaneously with few applications and a mail client running on it.

I highly value Malwarebytes its on my essentials list of Security tools and would love to have a lifetime license. I would also like to promote there product!

  44. I currently use MalwareBytes free on a weekly basis to back up Micro$oft’s Security Essentials.  About every other week its scan finds one or two infections.  I’d like to run it full time (until this article I didn’t know you could without interfering with SecEssentials) so I can catch these crap malwares as they attack my system not 3 or 5 or 7 days later.  So dropping my name in the hat.
