Pros: Very effective to use, simple interface and easy software to use! Install it and well-assured of protection against harmful viruses and persistent Trojans. It adds another extra layer of protection over the default Windows Defender virus software. Malwarebytes can quickly scan through my PC and laptop for virus treats and quarantine immediately without me having to worry about my files getting infected. The speed at which MB scans is quick enough without having to leave it run in the background. And that's to me is efficient and fast! In addition, it is able to block websites during my online surfing to warn me of potential sites that potentially contain malware or ransomware. You can buy a licence and add up to 10 devices, including Windows and Mac. One can also purchase separately MB licenses for Android and iOS via Google Play Store and Apple App Store respectively. Indeed, this software is a great time saver!

Cons: When such software has gotten much control over our computers, sometimes it can be very intrusive. At some point when I am surfing the web, almost all sites can potentially be blocked by Malwarebytes so much every time I clicked on a link. And that can be very annoying and destroy the joy of a user's experience of surfing the web. Even legal proper sites can be blocked! In that case, I have to manually set exclusions in the software settings to prevent MB from "accidentally" blocking certain sites. Even some software such as ServerPress can get "interfered" from working properly. I certainly did not suspect that until I start to troubleshoot further. Not to mention that MB can be costly to maintain on a yearly subscription basis after having enjoyed the initial discount on the 1st time purchase.

Overall: Hmm...Malwarebytes Premium is a joy and pain to use sometimes, depending how you look at it. Well, there is fuller assurance in having my computers almost fully protected. However, it can also be tricky to handle, especially when it comes to having MB residing hand-in-hand together with the rest of the users' software in the same computer. One certainly must know how to use it to its fullest potential and advantage in order to really enjoy the usefulness of a malware and Trojan killer such as Malwarebytes. But it is money well spent, in my opinion.

If I had a dollar for every time this product had saved one of my computers, I'd be rich.

Pros: This software catches and fixes just about everything, including what my antivirus programs won't. It' been around for years, and is reliable. It's cleaned malware and viruses for me that other malware programs didn't, and it's saved me from doing clean ups by hand. I've used their chameleon program to save my laptop when it became infected with a virus that blocked antivirus and malware programs from installing, and cut off my internet access and ability to download fixes. It can protect itself from being uninstalled. And their premium program runs and protects you in real time and is well worth the money. In all the years that I've been running Malwarebytes, I'm not sure that I've ever been successfully infiltrated on a computer that I've had running their premium program.

Cons: The customer service is slow and lackluster. I had to contact them a few months ago about some of my subscription licenses. They took days in between responses, and the responses were not helpful, and the reps closed out my ticket without solving my issue. It took three weeks and multiple tries at contacting them. There is no phone support. When you purchase product licenses, they do not all show up on your account on their website, so you need to be really careful and write down the product keys somewhere and keep them. All that said, that was the first time in probably the better part of a decade that I've EVER had to contact them, so it's generally not at issue. I'm guessing that the employees are all out diligently fighting malware, and not doing customer support.

Overall: This saves and cleans my computers, all of them, from every beastie out there, and has never failed me, even when every other product has.

Pros: My first encounter with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware was around July 2018 when my Android phone was taken over by a series of malicious malware that turned my phone into an advert box of all sorts. A friend told me he had a similar issue in the past and was rescued by Malwarebytes. I decided to try it out. Luckily, they had the premium version available for a free one-month trial at the time.

I quickly downloaded, registered and did a scan. It was super effective and easy to navigate.

In less than 5 minutes, my phone was cleaned. I was very Impressed and decided to try out the pc version of the software. And frankly, the functionality and effectiveness of the pc version were quite different from the Android version. It was smooth and fluid on my android but I cannot exactly say the same for the Pc version.

The online and real-time scanner notified me of unsafe websites I visited which was good.

Malwarebytes was designed to make you feel secure and protected from some malicious files or sites.

The interface was clean and simple

It performs as advertised. It detects malware and can cleans infected devices.

The paid version can be trusted to protect your pc but at the cost of pc speed during scans.

It was designed to fight malware, it is effective in doing that and should stick to it.

Cons: Malwarebytes software made my pc to lag sometimes at startup.

I felt some functionalities like the Asset policies management to deploy and monitor endpoints were complex and unneeded for personal users. It was complicated for me at least.

I would not recommend it as a standalone antivirus program due to the limitation of it virus scan toolkit.

I still got infected with a Trojan while using the free version.

The pricing can be made more competitive given that it cannot be trusted as a standalone anti-virus.

It should incorporate real-time protection against threats in the free version.

Overall: I used Malwarebytes for personal use on android and pc. it was an experience of mixed feelings. While it was perfect for android, it was average for on my Pc.

Overall, it is very effective for fighting malicious files and malware infected systems on both platforms.

Pros: I love the price - Free. I love the usability - download and run. I love the quality - not even my friends who like the darker net have had issues that Malwarebytes can prevent. I love features and functionality - I run it, and it does everything I need it to do without the need to micromanage it. Hands down, I love Malwarebytes, and I know that is something strange to say about your computer security system, and that I usually do not endorse something without at least one bigger reservation, but this is an exception. If you do not have a security in place and do not want to pay for one, get Malwarebytes!

Cons: Driven away by the price of Kaspersky, which is a great product, but I am a lowly broke computer lover, I found Malware bytes one day what seems like decades ago. It may not have been decades, but it was at least one... Anyway, I found Malwarebytes and fell in love. It has had my back through the days when being a teenager and going to torrent sites was cool, all the way until now when I try not to look back on those days and what I was getting myself into as I browse the internet for the next great coupon. Malwarebytes has been tried and true, but alas, since I use the free version, there is very little customization that I get to do. I run, it catches if there are anything that did not raise a gigantic red flag upon introduction. That is all, my only con, a lack of granularity. That should be a pro in itself.

A more complicated solution to virus protection from a company that helped build the industry.

Pros: I have been using Malwarebytes off and on for years. Malwarebytes began as a free offering that while simple was a powerful tool. It was among the first applications to supply malware protection and removal that was easy and quick to use. Over the years, they've grown to include all virus protection and the software has inevitably grown in both complexity and functionality. Now, Malwarebytes is a great option to protect your computer whether for home use or your business. It's affordable and runs well in the background. There are layers of protection that satisfy both the casual user and the more technically inclined.

Cons: Unfortunately the simple, straightforward malware removal tool of the past is long gone and with it the ease of use. As a much larger program that runs in the background rather than when you call it forth, it takes much more of your computer's resources and is much more involved to use. It's an understandable issue as the program's growth means it also offers much more than the previous versions of the software, but I miss the simple but effective application of "the before time." Still, it's a great example of industry standard protection which manages to keep up with the ever changing threats on the internet today.

Overall: A high standard of protection against constant virus threats from all daily activity on the internet. A good choice for any level of computer user.

Love knowing my computer is secure!

Pros: Malware Bytes Premium is the only security on all the computers and tablets in our household. It's easy to use, doesn't interfere with other applications, doesn't cause crashes, and I feel completely confident it delivers total security.

I've used a few anti-virus programs, but I always ran the free version of Malware Bytes alongside them. After a popular and expensive anti-virus program falsely detected a trojan and crashed my system, deleting drivers and corrupting files, and I had to spend for repairs, I made the decision that Malware Bytes Premium was all I needed for security. It's a decision I haven't regretted. I run Malware Bytes permanently in the background at all times. It monitors for any suspicious activity and warns immediately if there is the smallest risk. In addition, I run a full scan every day.

This software is amazingly good value - far less costly than most anti-virus software and does so much more! Stops ransomware and exploit attacks. Shields against suspicious websites. Removes malware and spyware. No more worms, rogues, dialers, trojans, rootkits, exploits, or bots... ever! As I work online, this protection is essential, and it's nice to know I can play and socialize safely as well, anytime I please.

Overall: Total computer security and peace of mind at a highly affordable price.

Pros: Malwarebytes has been my go to security software when thinking of the best malware software out there that is. Some of the things i like about Malwarebytes is one; the UI, which is easier to read the icons and navigate through the software; secondly, the types of scans i have at my disposal, such quick, full, and choose a specific folder; third; the level of security, the software truly lives up to its name when it comes to block malware, and other spyware, it gives me notification when i visit a website where there could be malware attacks but i couldn't know until Malwarebytes blocks the attack and notifies me. Fourth excellent removal threats, if in fact a malware was detected in my PC it will quarantine the threat and i could go in and delete if i want to. Last but not least is, Support Malwarebytes offers great, fast, and reliable support if needed for any reasons, i personally didn't need to call support as i am a Software engineer and familiar with some of the issues that may come up.

Cons: One of the downside is the resource consumption that Malwarebytes uses, specifically the memory that is required to run the product, most of the time Malwarebytes does run up to high memory, but then it does lower down i think once updates and other necessary items are checked in the backened.

Overall: Some of the benefits are i get from using Malwarebytes again are; security; which is needed when working for a company with sensitive data to prevent spoofing and hackers; Levels of scanning, i think having multiple options to choose from for scanning is great and effective as well. Peace of Mind, i never have to worry which website i visit as Malwarebytes has real time protection against attacks.

Malwarebytes has kept my environment malware free for years.

Pros: Shortly after I joined the company, we decided to move our IT in-house and away from the managed service provider we had been using. I built our entire IT environment from scratch, and one of the first things I did was deploy Malwarebytes Anti-malware. I had plenty of experience using the product to clean up machines already infected with malware, but deploying it to a clean end point and having that endpoint stay clean for more than five years without a single verifiable malware infection is a beautiful thing. With roughly 150 endpoints our environment is smaller than many, but with only two administrators supporting it we really enjoy spending exactly zero minutes each year dealing with infected machines.

Cons: The only possible "con" I could think of is that when I first deployed the solution, it threw out a few false positives due to a couple registry changes put in place via Group Policy in Active Directory. However, it's hard to say that's much of a con because monitoring suspicious registry changes is a good thing, and whitelisting those changes so it quit generating a false positive was super simple.

Overall: Not having to deal with malware infected machines, ever, at all, period.

Pros: I've been a Malwarebytes customer for the last 7 years or so. We use it for all of our home PC's and our cell phones. The software is super easy to use, and the only issue I can remember having with the software had nothing to do with malware. I had an update issue, but I used their excellent forum and was given a step-by-step walk through of how to fix the issue. My overall experience has been a great one. Before Malwarebytes, we used one of the big well known anti-virus companies where we had multiple issues and had to pay extra to get those issues resolved. I'm a huge fan of Malwarebytes because they've built a community around keeping your system safe. I feel like a valued customer with them and not just a number.

Cons: While they do offer a free version, the annual cost for the premium version has gone up considerably over the years. Initially they offered a lifetime license before switching to the subscription model like the other carriers. The lifetime license was a huge selling point for me, but I'd still highly recommend the product.

Overall: Malwarebytes is easy to use and great at keeping my computers safe.

Pros: I started with Malwarebytes free service. After about a year, I updated to the paid service to get the real-time protection. Honestly, everyone I know with any computer knowledge uses Malwarebytes. It is simply the best service of its kind. Even the free service is quite good, but the paid service is very inexpensive so I figured why not support a good company. Truth be told, malware screening is far more important these days than anti-virus software. You can get rid of Kaspersky or McAfee. Those things just slow down your system and actually create more hackable vulnerabilities. Malwarebytes is small and lightweight. It will keep you protected without annoying the hell out you like those anti-virus programs do.

Cons: No complaints. Malewarebytes is great, although you should not rely on it (or any one program) solely. I would also recommend using browser add-ons like Privacy Badger and HTTPS Everywhere, as well as a VPN service.

Overall: Superior to any anti-virus software. Even the free version is great. This is truly a must-have for anyone.

Malwarebytes is a solid tool to use to keep you protected.

Pros: This free software has been in my toolkit for a long time now. Any good security protection package you run to keep your computer safe should use at least two different pieces of software. You can pay for one to be sure you get good support and features and then back that one up with a free one. Malwarebytes has always been in the mix for me. Very good at finding infections and rootkits. Quarantine works well and it is very thorough.

Cons: The one thing I do not like about the Malwarebytes software is that they keep pushing the upgrade to premium package. The messages you see pop up sometimes say there is a update available and sometimes it says you should upgrade your software. Update and upgrade can be confusing to some people and free should mean free. I am running your software and I like it, now stop asking me to buy it. You can turn off some notifications, but users can still open the scan tool and see warnings. Now they think they are not protected and start clicking around. Free is free, you get what you pay for.

Pros: I've used Malwarebytes since High School, so I'm speaking with some nostalgia, but I can honestly say this software is great. Security has always been a major factor for me, but in managing certain systems for family members I'm not always around to update or patch vulnerabilities. That's when I turn to Malwarebytes. It's so easy to schedule stuff, keep everything up to date, and it's basic enough that my less technically-inclined users can use it.

Also, it is difficult to overemphasize that this is a free product. The value is huge, so there is no bar to entry other than a few seconds to download the program.

Overall, it's a great option for many users.

Cons: Honestly, there aren't many cons to Malwarebytes other than the slightly limited nature of the software. Yes, it's not military grade security, but for most users it's fine. If anything could be improved, it would be slightly tighter customization controls.

Overall: Free, easy-to-use computer security is the benefit. It's really that simple.

Pros: Malwarebytes is militant in their efforts to fight viruses and malware. It doesn't slow my computer down when it is running (which drove me crazy with several other software companies I used previously). They are on the front lines fighting the latest threats. ALSO, they email me newsletter with the most current information about worldwide threats and how to protect myself in a myriad of ways. The customer support is very responsive. For a low price, you can get multiple computers and/or laptops protected which was great for my family. This is a product I use at home on all of our family computers (4). You can move it from one computer to another when you get a new one, no problem.

Overall: I can set it up to update whenever I want, tell it when to restart. Also, like I said before, it does not slow down my laptop. With other software, I was going crazy with my computer running extremely slow AND letting a trojan in which destroyed my previous laptop (which is why I switched to Malwarebytes).

Have used Malwarebytes for several years, including both the free and licensed versions.

Pros: There are many, many, malware/spyware programs out there, both installable and real-time online scanners. I have used many brands and many types, but have always liked Malwarebytes products because of their reliability and more important - consistency. They also have other free tools such as stubborn file deleters, root kit scanners, etc. Good company with good products and easy to deal with as well.

Cons: There isn't a product out there (and never has been) that will catch 100% of any type of malware or virus activity; it just can't be done because of ever-evolving code and technology. This industry is a "reaction-based" industry that produces its best results as a reaction to something malicious that has already happened. Malwarebytes isn't necessarily at fault for being in this same category, but as with other products, as long as you do updates on a regular basis you'll be as protected as you can be for most situations.

Pros: This review is of Malwarebytes Premium. The free version is a different animal and doesn't suffer from the problems I list below. I usually install Malwareybtes free on all my computers at work and at home. Premium definitely offers a lot more functionality and at a great price. I can usually count on Malwarebytes to find and detect problems before they get out of hand, or once to discover existing problems.

Cons: There is a serious caveat to how much I like Malwarebytes Premium: it has a ridiculous amount of CPU usage. The versions I have had on my system are certainly not optimized or work well with my system. Mind you, I don't have a weak system (i7 3930k CPU with 32GB of RAM), yet when I'm running Malwarebytes Premium with everything set to Active uses 80-100% of my CPU. Apparently, after reading up on it I realized this is not isolated to me but is actually a common problem. If it weren't for this issue, I could give it a glowing recommendation. I still have it since I have a lifetime license, but I have to be careful how much of it I use and when. Also, Premium is meant to be the only anti-malware program on your system and it really doesn't like other anti-virus software (usually they come up as "PUPs" in scans), so you can forget using it together with virtually anything else.

Overall: Virus, malware and browsing protection

Pros: This software specialized in the elimination of computer malwares is an excellent solution among many that are in the market. Among the benefits we found when using it were:

-Malwarebytes has an excellent security when it comes to managing the analyzed data, creating an accurate selection of the malware found on the computer and eliminating them or passing them to quarantine.

- Although it seems limited, its speicalization in the elimination of malware makes it the best in the market, since it has more components and updates associated with the suppression of malwares.

Cons: As I mentioned at the beginning, this software saved me the life of a work catastrophe associated with an email that I opened by mistake and that unleashed a massive attack of malwares in my computer that put in danger the integrity of the information that it handled. Therefore, I do not have any complaints about this software

Overall: Malwarebytes is a software highly recommended for all those companies that can be threatened with malware. With excellent functions of permanent monitoring of the PC, a luxury technical service, and some enviable functions in comparison to other software for handling and suppressing viruses on a PC, they make it a big one in this branch and a necessary companion in the work daily in the company.

Pros: MalwareBytes offers comprehensive sets of features to protect you from malware, anti-ransomware, attacks and all types of known-unknown threats which could compromise your data and security. Its lot better than Windows Defender. It has saved me numerous times when our computers were affected by malwares. It removed malwares from system without any data corruption which is the best thing about it. I have tried many other tools but lost my data in process of malware removal, but with MalwareBytes I never lost a file. It offers daily definition updates which keeps your PC up-to-date and protected from newer threats. Also it is not resource hungry tool unlike other software. It does it job best without affecting your system's performance. And its all-round protection has never failed me till date.

Cons: None, really. It must be part of every system connected to Internet.

Pros: Malwarebytes is a great software. I came across Malwarebytes when I had malware issues in my PC. I was about to format my PC and worried that I will have to loose all my data. I installed different malware cleaning softwares but ultimately Malwarebytes fixed it. Even the free version of it is very useful if you want to see how it performs. However, I would recommend getting the full version as all of its features are very useful to protect your device from malware. It is always up to date and cleans regularly. Unlike other software, it does not slow your PC.

Cons: It would be great if Malwarebytes was a complete antivirus software. I find it is expensive because it is only cleaning malware and I have to purchase another software as an antivirus tool. It would be great if they could implement both of these qualities in one software.

Overall: My PC was not functioning properly due to malware. I was about to format my PC. But Malwarebytes scanned and removed all the malware which was causing many issues. Since then I did not need to format my PC and it still works perfectly.

Pros: What I like most is the employment of AI and behavior matching to detect and stop threats that haven't been encountered before. That's really great as it has helped to stop me from being a victim of ransomware attack in the past.

I also like how neat the interface is. The dashboard is lovely and easy to navigate.

Lastly, this software has a really low false positive rate, especially compared to similar other products I've tried.

Cons: There's really nothing to dislike about this software. Before now, I used to hate how I was frequently being reminded about the paid version. But once I switched and started enjoying the full benefits of this software, I have zero complaints.

Overall: Malwarebytes is a very great and indispensable software. I've been using it for a couple of years nlw, it has helped to protect me from ransomware attacks. It gives peace of mind knowing that it can stop an attack even before it begins.

Overall: I love this app. I have it installed on all of my devices from my android phone, pc laptop, and Ipad. It protects me when browsing websites. Scans are fact and thorough. You can configure how deep you want the scan to go into your folder system. On my phone I can use it to block calls, and it identifies scam calls which I can ignore. It also works with other anti virus software, so it doesn't conflict. It is also great on battery life, and doesn't drain your phone if that's where you use it. It's not just an antivirus, but also detects malware, and spyware, to give an all round 360 degree protection for your device. Again, you can and should upgrad to the premium version to take advantage of all of it's features.

Pros: I don't like to have to get too involved in the security of my machines, simply because I'm busy and need a product that allows me to get on with what I really need to be doing. Malwarebytes allows me to do just that. I installed Malwarebytes along with ESET about 10 years ago and have had no reason to change. Simple setup, complete confidence in security, and enough tools to keep a geek happy. I don't completely ignore my security, I just don't want to be hindered or constantly told about something. I have MB installed on 3 laptops and 3 desktops at home, and never have any issues.

Cons: In the early days of MB, the website wasn't really marketed well, and so it was difficult to really know what you were getting. That led to a lot of concern. That's gone.

Overall: Malwarebytes Pro, along with ESET Internet Security, is the only setup I trust, both for my laptops and my desktops.

We are a small business using Malwarebytes Premium and love it.

Pros: It is inexpensive but very comprehensive in the virus and malware protection that it provides. Our business runs over the internet so it is critical that our computers not get damaged or infected. I have seen it in action catching threats on my own pc and instantly quarantining them and removing them. It is also set to prevent the recent ransomware attacks.

Cons: From a management standpoint, it would be nice if there was a way for the manager to be notified if a threat is found on a pc - that way we could double check to make sure the employee is not causing any problems by web sites they access etc. Right now we are on the honor system for the employees to self report. The software works great though.

Overall: Malwarebytes protects our pc's from harmful web sites, viruses, worms, etc and we have used it for quite a few years now. We are a small business, so we need software that allows us to easily handle IT issues in-house.

Pros: I've been a Pro subscriber of MalwareBytes since 2011. Before that, I used the free version for years whenever I thought something might be "off" on my PC. By 2011, the free version was no longer an option since I needed realtime protection for myself and my family.

This is always the first application I recommend to friends and family. And it's always the first install on any PC I work on. If anyone asks me for help with a slow PC or weird popups, I have this saved on my USB keychain ready for installation.

This is *the* malware app to own and use on a daily basis with all the new threats popping up every day.

Cons: Although this actively scans each website you visit, I wish there was a way to pre-emptively paste a hyperlink somewhere to have it checked before I click it.

Overall: Daily protection from malware and nefarious websites.

Pros: I only came across this amazing software some days back while surfing through youtube to find a solution to a problem on my windows laptop, i was advised to download malware bytes, scan my files and it'll fix it. True to the directions, the problem was fixed and i never heard of it again.

Ease of use; as a first timer eho was trying the software for the first time, at a glance, the menus and icons all looked complex but it was only from a first timers perspective, i got my way around it quickly, got it to scan my files and voila, i was done with it. Had to keep it installed on my system as back uo just in case the problem resurfaces but it hasn't.

Pricing; regardless of the premium features packed in this software, you get a free 30 days trial to see things for yourself if getting the premium subscription is worth it or not.

With malware bytes, you never have to worry about the safety of your personal computer or the files on them again, even better, you're fully shielded from ransomewares.

Cons: Protection; its not a wrong to say malware bytes is not near perfection just yet as there are softwares in its category that will beat it hands down when it comes to wholesome protection of your files, with malware bytes, you only get about 90% protection.

Pros: This software does what it says it does, with the latest updates it automatically is scanning in background while you do whatever it is you are doing on your pc. It wont slow up your computer and it will find malware automatically and just pop up with it and ask you what you would like to do with the file. I have had no issues with Malware since using this software. There is a free version when it is expired you just uninstall and reinstall it for free.

Cons: I dont have really anything negative to say about this software I been using it for quite some time now, granted it will always work better hand in hand with another anti viruse program. it works good as long as I have used it as a basic malware remover. You just have to try it your self to decide if you like it or not.

Overall: In my opinion, this Malwarebytes removal software helps to protect business systems and personal systems from traditional threats, including Trojans, adware, and spyware, as well as new and emerging threats. It does what it is supposed to do in my opinion

Pros: We use this as our primary antivirus software. When I started working at my current position, I was actually very pleasantly surprised to find that out, because I have used Malwarebytes on a personal level for many years.

This software has a great user interface, but most importantly: It works. That's all that really matters in the antivirus community, but that's what Malwarebytes has always excelled at.

Personally, I use Malwarebytes along with another antivirus software, but every single time I have a problem with any of my computers, it seems that Malwarebytes is always the one to detect and remove the problem.

Cons: This isn't really a valid complaint, but I wish the Paid versions were Free!

But who doesn't wish great stuff was free?

Comments: It's Malwarebytes for Business - what else can you ask for!

Pros: Malwarebytes is the go-to for anti-malware and security protection for personal use all over the world. It only makes sense to use them when available in the business arena. The cloud-based solution allows for remote cleaning of infected machines on Mac or PC which allows businesses to protect any of their customers - even in a BYOD environment. Since our deployment, we haven't had an infection of malware that was able to penetrate our system through any infected device. In the world of security - it's not if you'll get infected, it's when! And Malwarebytes is what you want when that happens.

Cons: There's really only two cons. First, it can be a bit pricey per machine. I wish there was a greater discount as the device count was higher, and a discount for government or non-profit/charity type businesses. Second, when running, it uses up a lot of system resources, causing the machines to run slower at times and almost un-usable during a scan. I realize this is the case with any type of security program, but still something to point out.

After install, we get more to clean and have had no infections

Pros: ease of use, back ground searches, updates are not interfering with my operations; I have this on all computers because of their licensing policies that are very fair; I get the reports I want when I need them, and without extraneous info. The interface is not just "intuitive" ( which means you have to be an Apple user or some sort of mind reader) it is actually plain and straight forward, that makes the learning curve very nice.

Cons: I have had a bit of a problem switching licenses to add a computer that has a stand alone license. Sometimes it turns off, requiring a manual reboot and restart.

Overall: it protects me and my computers, and when a problem shows up, it will stop the browser and won't let me in -- keeps me from mistakes in site entry.

Pros: This software is great, I have been using it on every computer and all my clients for now 5-6 years. I wouldn't consider another anti virus as of late. This does everything, the real time protection with premium is so nice, there is many options and everything is easy to use and understand which other anti viruses have had issues achieving. It is great to finally have a software that you can truly rely on and not be worried anymore!

Cons: Cannot think of any cons, perhaps the only thing I would suggest is to change their trial from 14 days to 30 days, I pay by the year personally so I have not used or needed any trial but I feel people seeing a 30 day offer may have them more keen on trying out malwarebytes.

Malwarebytes fills the gaps that my anti virus software misses.

Pros: Ratings keep showing this is the best anti malware software available. I have used the free and paid versions. Of course the paid subscription has more features. Easy to use, and fast (depending on your computer setup). You can have it on live monitor, and/or just run a scan when you desire. It updates frequently. I am very confident in the ability of this program to remove and find malware.

Cons: A known issue is that this software (when on monitor mode) can clash with MS Office and prevent you saving documents. There are reports of this for a few years, but the problem seems unresolved. So I switched to the free version and run scans manually. I'll subscribe again when they fix this issue.

Pros: I've used this product in the past. I like what it does and it helped get malware off of a non-tech savvy friends PC . Malwarebytes is easy to use and does a good job of protecting your machine from. Personally I've switched to using SOPHOS for my protection however if you need a one size fits all approach to anti-virus, malware and ransomware and you don't mind paying for it Malwarebytes is for you. I also, had a friend not tech savvy get infected by clicking on an exe in an email. Malware bytes removed it from his PC and we just used the free trial to do so.

The software worked as advertised no problems while using it.

Cons: I don't like the price. I currently switched to the free version of sophos. IF you are tech savy skip this product.

Overall: Antivirus ransomeware protections. Also it helps to clean an infected machien.

Pros: Searches for and finds malicious software and files buried in the most obscure directories. This programs will find everything. The features in the free version are all you need to keep your PC secure. The browser cache cleaner is also extremely helpful with keeping file bloat low and freeing up space.

Cons: Honestly nothing. I've had no issues or complaints about the program. It works as advertised.

Overall: Malwarebytes the anti-virus program I always tell my friends to use. It doesn't aggressively push their paid service on you. The scans are the most effective. And the UI is intuitive and simple. It's nice to use a program where it doesn't seem like the developers are tying to shove sketchy services down your throat. This one just works.

Bar none the best protection.

Pros: This is the first thing that I install on all my PC's. The free version is already a good product if you're on a budget but buying the yearly subscription is easily well worth the money. Having real time protection that works is invaluable. It is constantly blocking suspicious sites from displaying in the background and stopping shady processes before they even start.

On a business level their enterprise software is really robust. It's easy to install and manage clients on the back-end without disrupting end users.

Cons: I have no complaints at all. Malwarebytes is always able to find and remove problems that other programs miss.

Overall: Solid internet security.

Pros: The software is great and is my go-to software for anti-virus. It is free but has the ability to purchase for some extra features such as scheduled scans etc but is not required. This catches pretty much all malware without an issue and i haven't come across a time it has failed to remove a PUP or virus itself.

Cons: Only downside is the resource consumption that it can soak up during a schedules scan and it requires a fair bit of memory to run. It does drop once any updates/scans have taken place.

Overall: Overall my experience with malwarebytes has been positive and haven't had any issues. Paid subscription is more than affordable but the free version is more than enough for the normal user.

Pros: I love everything on this software. When I first use it on my laptop that's starting to slow down, it detected a lot of problems that my previous anti-virus hadn't detected. I instantly deleted the previous one and keep Malwarebytes from then on. There is also a noticeable increase on speed on my laptop processes. It's very easy to use. No ads and doesn't need any intrusive downloads. I love this so much I bought a premium version and recommended it to everyone I know when I hear them complaining about their laptops or PC slowing down. Worth every penny.

Cons: I can't think of any. This software just do everything it says it do.

Pros: Started with Malwarebytes free download and service. They offer quick scans and cleanups of temp files. Running Malwarebytes gives me peace of mind. Although I've never had a virus issue, the program has helped me clean up tracking that I've pick up without knowing.

Each scan provides a detailed, yet simple, report of what is sitting in my computer.

Cons: The only downside for a malware program would be if I still had malware after using it. My computer has been clean so there isn't any "least" for me to report on. If I had to pick on something, it would be the Malwarebytes notifications that pop up on occasion (I'm being nitpicky).

Pros: In the corporation where I provide services, the protection of information and work equipment is of extreme importance. Coupled with a good antivirus, Malwarebytes is an ideal option to eliminate worms, Trojans, rogue software, malicious ip blocking, malicious pages blocking and, with its latest update you can detect and eliminate the dangerous ransomware and exploit.

Cons: We have tried several malwares detection programs, but we are left with Malwarebytes, because it is very effective when using it, detecting most malicious events that can affect a PC.

Of moments we do not have contras in relation to this software, since, it completely eliminated the problems that we had. In general I have more positive things to highlight than bad

Overall: Malwarebytes visualize it as an active member of our company, keeping the information we generate safe is a premise and a duty, therefore, we must recognize the excellent work that Malwarebytes performs in the corporation where I live, thanks to them we do not feel more secure

Pros: There's no doubt that MalwareBytes AntiMalware has been one of the best solutions for removing and preventing malware and spyware on computers. I've been using them for years as a PC Technician, and their utilities have always been a staple in my technician toolbox (flash drive) to repair systems and keep them healthy. The current version of the program, version 3, is much easier to use than ever before and has tons of great features and abilities - and of course, it removes and prevents all kinds of malware just as it always has.

Cons: I was a HUGE fine of prior versions of this software, but the newer version 3 has seen my faith shaken. While the program is still great at removing malware, the realtime aspect of the program is plagued by performance issues. Even using the program in freeware mode without the realtime scanner active, it was still commonplace for me to see active memory usage exceed 500MB routinely. When using the realtime scanner aspect of the premium version, usage would hover around 200MB for a while but eventually, it would balloon out of control to the point where it would consistently use over 700MB at a time until you closed it or rebooted, which would restart the cycle. I found the only way to stop this was to basically shut it down entirely and disable the services, using it as an on-demand scanner only. Because of this, I have stopped recommending it. Simply put - the program is GREAT at detecting and removing threats, however, it has become a resource hog to the point where the system becomes crippled when running the premium version.

Pros: Malwarebytes runs good along with Avast or Webroot and does not slow up my desktop when it is running even with another antivirus except when I manually do a scan my PC will slow up a little bit but nothing to horrible. When it finds a potential harmful file it will automatically pop up and give you the option of what to do with it before it does anything with the file.

Cons: The only disadvantages I could think of is it does not have a quick scan option, which is not a deal breaker and if it were somehow able to monitor and detect harmful emails that were in your inbox before you opened them would make it that much better. Other than that I am completely satisfied using Malwarebytes.

Overall: If you want a simple malware removal software that does what it is supposed to do and is very user friendly than this is the one for you

Pros: MalwareBytes works as advertised. It stops and cleans up malware that slows down and compromises your computer. The customer service reps are very helpful and generally respond to emails within 1 day. I have used their free product, professional product and Corporate product. For many years the MalwareBytes products were my go to when I needed to clean computers.

Cons: My worst experience with MalwareBytes was when I was looking at their Enterprise software. I contacted Sales to get a quote. After I got the quote, my approval process got bogged down. The sales person sent a reminder email that was quite condescending and really aggravated me. As a result I did not purchase the enterprise product.

Recommendations to other buyers: Test out the product, give it to the person that you know gets the most malware/viruses and see how long their computer stays clean. Another test is to set the program up on a test system that is not on your normal network and go to as many gray websites as possible and see what happens. This can be lots of fun. There are some lists on the internet of compromised websites that can be used. Note you really want to do this on a test system that you can wipe clean after testing.

This is the anti-malware program you didn't know you NEEDED!!

It's QUICK to update.

It picks up on almost EVERY possible intrusion.

It's priced JUST right in the market.

I don't like that my original license will not allow me to use the updated UI.

Beyond this, I have nothing negative to say, as it's likely saved my machine(s) from certain destruction more than a few times.

Pros: If you're looking for an anti-virus that can be installed alongside other anti-virus programmes Malwarebytes will allow this.

From using the free trial I decided to continue with the paid version which speaks for itself. A relatively easy to use platform allows for quick or more in depth sweeps of your system to be performed. Whilst the homepage might seem somewhat cluttered, like anything, with use you'll quickly be navigating around the software as if it was second nature.

The initial sweep performed was very quick, and seemed to pick up a couple of items which were quickly contained. It did however flag a couple of legitimate software pacakages which it deemed as potentially unwanted software. This seemed like quite an aggresive sweep, but ultimately I was happy with the results.

The one point to note, unlike some other anti-virus packages, Malwarebytes is relatively light to install and will not dominate a chunk of your hard drive.

Malwarebytes doesnt focus on detecting static harmful files but instead monitors and blocks suspect movements. This real time tracking and blocking is what I want and this software helps provide me with a peace of mind that my files are secure.

Cons: The main disadvantage of Malwarebytes compared to key competitors is the cost. It is priced at a slight premium which may put some users off, however you have to weigh up the cost/ benefits.

Secondly, compared to other platforms used, the interface can at times seem a little cluttered. This is overcome by BIG letters pointing you to the important functions, but once you've spent a few minutes looking through the platform, you'll very quickly learn to navigate your way aroundx

Overall: Positive and would recommend to those looking to invest in a robust and proven anti-virus software package.

Cons: One thing that I really dont like (but that I understand) is that the free version will only help you to clean malware from your computer, if you want protection you have to pay for the premium version.

Overall: I would love if the free version would protect my computer, but I understand that there is profit to be made and this is one of the best softwares I have used for protecting my pc.

Cons: It is updated so many times that it can be tedious at times, but because it is to offer protection, you do not notice it

I have loved Malwarebytes for years. Excellent product IMO, even free version is very useful.

Pros: Great tool. Many features. Scans find items our other tools will miss.

Easy to use, as most of our average users can operate without much prompting.

Console is setup good. I have no trouble navigating.

Compatible with any main AV scanner or tools we have used so far.

Cons: This is not a con to us, but could be a Con to someone expecting an AV software.

This is not an AV software. Think of this as more like an independent add-in compatible with other AV solutions.

Otherwise I really have no significant Cons to list.

Overall: This is a great supplement to existing AV and other solutions.

It frequently catches items the others miss.

Pros: Malwarebytes has saved my computer several times from accessing websites known for infections as I browsed for fonts and pictures. It blocks them completely, with an option to override. This software is easy to run and checks for things your anti-virus would miss. The paid version (which I have) runs in real-time.

Cons: It used to take quite a while to start up a scan, but it seems much faster lately.

Overall: Operating a small business still means you need to protect not only your personal data, but anything of your client's as well. If you use a POS that runs through the computer (like through QuickBooks) it's extra peace of mind to have Malwarebytes running.

Malwarebytes secures you.

Pros: Malwarebytes can identify a lot of malware types and it quarantines malware perfectly. The installation process is very straight forward and it does not take much time. You can install Malwarebytes on your computer even when you have some other anti virus software installed on it. Therefore, you do not need to uninstall existing anti virus software in order to install this one.

Cons: There is nothing to complain about this software. Malwarebytes does everything for you.

Overall: I have Malwarebytes installed on my laptop and I did not need to install any other anti virus software on my laptop. I recommend this software to anyone.

Pros: Malwarebytes is the bees knees. It's saved me from ugly malware infestations more than once, which is a pretty big deal when I'm developing software on my PC. It's very quick and updates often so it gives me a lot of mental peace.

Cons: I can't think of anything I don't care for about malwarebytes. I wish they had an antivirus program that went along with it as I still do run a secondary program to test for viruses (as opposed to malware)

Overall: Awesome piece of software. I require all of our work machines to have it installed and run daily. It does an efficient and thorough scan for malware, and it doesn't make getting rid of the malware confusing.

Pros: The software is a very reasonably priced for all the features and tools they offer. The software is unintrusive, quietly runs in the background, informs you when something is wrong and points you in the right direction for taking care of it. Safe mode use is the best way to go when taking care of an infected computer.

Cons: There is very little con to this software. I would say that there could be a few more features that the bigger competitors offer but they are just bells and whistles, not needed to perform the tasks.

Overall: Quick, easy, and efficient Malware protection from the best and most known name in the service.

Pros: We have been using this software for a number of years and quite happy with the results. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Corporate) helps us to keep our computers malware free. It removes unwanted threats and potential viruses and allows us to quarantine the threats. I use a Free version on my personal computer as well and quite impressed. I find that Malwarebytes picks up threats that Norton never does. Definitely recommend using this software.

Overall: Malwarebytes caught and blocked lots of threats. This product removes exploits where other products have failed. Free version is great to use as well for personal computers.

Pros: Malwarebytes is free to use, so it instantly gets a 10/10 from me in terms of value for price. Not only is it free, but it is also the most commonly used and recommended anti malware software out in the market. It is powerful and has defended my devices for years now. Simple and thorough scans can be completed with the press of a button. It alerts you whenever anything needs your attention. Runs quietly in the background and doesn't consume too many of your device's resources.

Cons: No cons for Malwarebytes at this point.

Overall: Try it out for yourself. It is free and very easy to set up.

Pros: A great tool and very easy to install. Very effective for cleaning malware. What i like most is the effectiveness of this software and malwarebytes can catch the most recent malwares very easily and completely. Their support is also good. Doesn't need much user interaction which is also an excellent part.

Cons: Though the overall quality is very good but there is a specific problem i have faced many times. Sometime after the auto update, malwarebytes crashes and stops to work. The easiest solution is to reinstall the software but it happens seldom.

Overall: I use it everyday and its very effective against malwares

Pros: I use different types of malware security for my websites, codes, servers, desktop, laptop and mobile device, and Malwarebytes is one that I mostly use and is one of the best. It does its job pretty silently, working in the background, searching for possible malware, viruses and other unsecured entities that might endanger my setup. As a software engineer, all my work is either on my desktop or my laptop, even if it's backed-up, I cannot afford to lose my files due to malware.

Cons: I have not seen a disadvantage in using Malwarebytes so far; everything is working fine.

Cons: Not too many. UI may not be as intuitive as other brands but I don't have many negatives aspects to talk about for this product.

Pros: As a student who uses the internet for basically everything academic wise, I recommend anyone in the same shoes to use Malwarebytes as your anti-virus software. I sometimes come across very sketchy websites and downloads and Malwarebytes has always kept my computer clean. There is a free version, which works great for basic protection, and then the paid version (which I use) that provides maximum protection and resources. It is easy to use, and can set it up to scan your computer on set intervals.

Cons: The only problem I have ever had with Malwarebytes is with some types of ransomware that it does not pick up. This is very rare, and almost 99% of the time a new update for Malwarebytes comes out to fix the issue.

Overall: As a student I recommend this software to all my fellow friends. Whenever my friends computers start to run slow or run into issues, I always help them install Malwarebytes and it has always helped with their issues. 10/10 software that I will continue to use.

Pros: This product is great because it comes in two versions. If you just need a quick clean and are worried your computer might have some issues, you can use the free version. If you want a more complete solution with real time protection you can go for the paid version which is not very expansive.

Cons: The only thing I don't like about this software is that on some old computers, the scan can take a lot more time. But this is mostly because being an old PC, it lacks the CPU power and the hard drive is getting old.

Overall: I managed to speed up a lots of computers and make sure it didn't have any more malwares.

It will have its typical pop ups and tell you this is 'not a good site' and could be dangerous to the user to the option having it run a vicious attachment check on your computer.

Cons: I would say it is the nagware . . most of these companies like to upgrade you to the enhanced version. I don't mind but if I want to buy the upgrade . . I can find it. I don't need to be reminded all the time.

Overall: Well . . I have been attacked and Malwarebytes has kept me clean. It's nice to have this in your tool box for protection. I am a firm believer that you need something to keep malware off of your computer and I would recommend this piece to everyone!

Cons: Starting up your computer might be a little slow, but it is well worth it. And it tells you about anything and everything you put on your computer or do with your computer. Might be annoying to some. Not me.

Pros: Much can be said about Malwarebytes. Reading online reviews on it tells the entire story. Malwarebytes is by far the best free tool to deal with malware and other similar security risks for your devices. It is available for both Windows and Android (what I use it for), and works very well in the background. It notifies you immediately if it senses something isn't right.

Scans can be completed in the background as well and pretty quickly compared to some anti-viruses.

Cons: No cons, love Malwarebytes and I'd recommend everyone to give it a try. It's free!

Pros: Malwarebytes is really good at catching most malware, and is a terrific second-opinion scanner, meaning that if are removing viruses, it's good to follow up with a scan with Malwarebytes as it will find additional remnants in most cases.

Cons: While this works great as a scanner and antimalware software, it doesn't do great as the only protection you have. You'd also want antivirus that does more of an active threat control scan. But it still has value as an adjunct to most antivirus.

Overall: A good second opinion scanner. It doesn't take the place of our antivirus, but it is a tool that we use regularly.

Pros: I first installed this program 9 years ago to remove some spyware that I had accidentally installed. I was so impressed with how Maywarebytes could remove something that McAffe could not! Ever since then, Maywarebytes has been the first program I install on any new computer I own. It has never failed to stop a potential attack, and there are constant updates so I know I am getting the best product possible.

Cons: The free version asks for an upgrade every day. I don't want to upgrade every device, but there is no option to make it stop asking.

Pros: Malwarebytes is extremely easy to use, it just needs to be downloaded and executed and that's it you are protected. It detects and removes malware like spywares, bots, Trojans, and other ones. Also it's chameleon technology is top notch since it protects the software against some malwares that might try to disable it or change it.

Cons: It will stop malware only if it's the premium version, the free one will only delete it from your computer (which is still great). It is not an antivirus, it must be used alongside an antivirus for your pc to be fully protected.

Overall: we were infected by malware in our company and were really desperated to eliminate it, and malwarebytes was the tool that helped us to acomplish that task. Is an excellent software

Cons: as with all malware removers, you don't really know what is happening or that it is at all so you just have to trust it. my biggest peeve with this software is how it would always hang when notifying me of paying to upgrade. i would always have to run task manager to stop it and get rid of it.

I also like how easy it is to set it up and use chiefly because of the clean and intuitive UI.

One other thing I like is that it has a very low false positive rate than most other products.

Malwarebytes will typically find things that other anti-malware software will miss. I run it along side my AV and haven't experience any issues with conflicts.

The software is easy to setup and does not consume too many resources compared to othe similar products. The realtime protection makes this software hard to beat!

Cons: Consumer pricing for this product is very competitive, but even with aggressive Education discounts, the Enterprise version of the program is just bit too costly.

Pros: This review is for Malwarebytes free edition for home/small business use. I have used the premium edition before and appreciated its deep clean approach, of viruses and malware, in the computer. But there was a lot of extra bits and pieces that I did not need to use so went back to the free edition. I have not looked back. Latest ransom ware exploits were discovered, blocked and quarantined beforehand. Another "no names mentioned" anti virus/malware program missed it.

Cons: Not so much cons as more annoyances. A few glitches were discovered using the paid edition, perhaps having to do with my particular system, have not shown up in free. That being said, paid edition is great for use in multi computer scenerios or where you want/need the extra benefits associated with paid. When you get the free edition, you can take a test drive of premium paid edition and decide for yourself.

Cons: I have to manually do the updates. It often asks me to upgrade to the premium paid version. It's not a comprehensive anti-virus software.

Overall: It was easy to download, really easy to operate and use, and it's already saved me from a couple threats!

Pros: We are small company and however, we got attacked with a ransomware which completely disabled our server. After that incident, every PC within the server got a copy of this program as a second layer to the windows defender program. So far it's been fantastic and detecting malware before it even reaches the computer, especially malware that you receive via email. Once you set it up initially, you dont have to mess with the program at all. Most importantly, it doesn't affect the speed of the computer. Furthermore, it is very cost effective

Cons: As a company we haven't had any issues so far with the program. Therefore I do not have any specific issues with the program.

Pros: Malwarebytes is so lightweight, and yet is doesn't sacrifice it's integrity and ability to do its job. It leaves malware shaking in its boots every time I load it.

It runs in the background nicely and you barely even notice when it is scanning (which is very convenient to set up on a cycle, by the way).

Cons: Sometimes, when it's scanning, it can make my system stutter a bit, mainly on older systems. Not a huge issue but sometimes annoying (especially when doing spreadsheet work and the curser is jittering a bit)

Cons: The program can interfere with the operations of other programs and on very rare--we're talking about once every two years or so--it blocks a legitimate website. But beyond these quirks, there's almost nothing to criticize.

Overall: Cybersecurity, a degree of peace of mind, and a backup on-demand anti-malware scanner.

Pros: I love that Malwarebytes scans my computer constantly looking for threats. I don't have to remember to scan my computer because MW does it for me. It gives me peace knowing my computer is covered at all times. I also like that MW is active on staying up on new viruses and threats so its not just the old viruses but new, also.

Cons: At this time I like everything with Malwarebytes. I've not had any problems with it.

Overall: I got the locky virus and lost a lot of my word docs and photos because I wouldn't pay the ransom to get the key. That prompted me to get Malwarebytes. I've not had any viruses since I bought Malwarebytes but they've warned me of things I needed to delete. Love the software!

Pros: It is the perfect complement to any antivirus, because MalwareBytes specializes in the detection of malware (and its removal if the computer is already infected).

It is so effective that it can even be used as the only security software on your computer.

Cons: The free version does not offer real time protection, so it is recommended to use the Premium (which is the one I use).

Overall: This software helps prevent attacks and ensures the security of our company's data. It costs very low and is very helpful.

Pros: Malwarebytes runs faster, does not bog down my machine, and plain out performs any other anti-malware program. I'll never use Norton or McAfee again - Malwarebytes is great ! I have a gaming machine, so the less running in the background and weighting it down, the better. Malwarebytes can run without taking my CPU usage sky-high and my computer speed down

Cons: I love MWB! There's really no one bad thing I can think of to point at. Maybe "I wish it wasn't so awesome."

Pros: The software is very light and and does the job. The enterprise management console is very good and helps keep track of all the computers and servers that the software is installed on. You can trigger a scan from the console. The installation is also very easy if you need to roll it out to the field.

Cons: The UI of the software is not that great. There are many things the user can do it, but more options are available on the management console. They need to package more security tools and features with this software.

Overall: We are able to know that our hardware is safe with this sofware from any malware exploits that could get on the network and steal data.

A lifesaver, pure and simple. One tool I never want to be without.

Pros: Malwarebytes has earned a well deserved reputation as the first method of attack on any malware infestation (and in many cases will do the full job without supporting products). The licensed version also does a solid job of prevention. Updates are regular and frequent.

Cons: Some of the more recent updates have made the user interface less elegant in my view, but functionality is all still there (and it's vital functionality I'm home)

Overall: Top rate malware prevention and removal.

Pros: - Very powerful.

- Simple and easy to use interface.

- Comes in free and paid versions.

- Very light on resources.

- Provides total security (ransomware, antivirus, protection from malware, spyware, Trojans, rootkits, exploits, and bots, etc)

- Does not slow down a system.

Cons: - Free version does not provide real time protection making it of hardly any use.

- Expensive

Apart from above two, I do not think MalwareBytes has any other drawbacks.

Pros: Something I really like about malwarebytes is that due to its chameleon technology malwares aren't able to alter it or disable it, which ensures that it is always protecting you against malwares, something that most antivirus don't do. It is really easy to use since its interface is super comfortable and it is streamlined.

Cons: You must keep in mind that this is not an antivirus so other types of threats can still infect your computer, that's why I recommend you use it with an antivirus.

Overall: If you use malwarebytes alongside an antivirus then your computer is going to be fully protected from any type of threat, I really recommend it.

Pros: Malwarebytes is used on every computer I own. Regardless of Windows or Mac pc, it is a necessity to have installed. Over the years the software has improved and become more diligent in eliminating viruses and bugs in my system. I highly encourage everyone to use this software.

Cons: None. The software pricing is reasonable and it does what it says it does!

Overall: The software is self-automated and runs as necessary. This helps us with less downtime in rebuild and repair.

Pros: We've been using Malwarebytes since the early days. It's constantly improved and is still as good as it is today. We like the new interface and the simple layout. While simple, the options we need to configure scanning and schedules to our taste still exist. We use Malwarebytes in conjunction with other scanning tools. Upon infection, Malwarebytes is still king when it comes to finding other infections that other malware and virus scanners cannot.

Cons: Scanning seems to take a bit longer than we remember but that could be that Malwarebytes has become more thorough which is what you would want. Other than that, we're not sure there's much to complain about.

Overall: We're able to confidently clean infected machines and protect those that aren't infected. It is also a great tool for scanning external drives on demand.

Pros: Malwarebytes is an unbelievably intelligent anti malware software that is offered for free for personal use.

The user interface (UX) is very simple but very effective. You can run scans when convenient or pre-schedule them for certain times when you are away from the desk.

It detects and notifies you if it finds anything that needs your attention.

Cons: It is over-all a very useful tool and millions of users around the globe will agree.

Pros: I downloaded an application that I thought it was safe, after opening it my workstation become unresponsive, many annoying pop-ups displayed on my screen (advertisement) and worst is that my files are missing. I downloaded the free edition of this software and after installing, it clean and make my workstation back to its performance. Thumbs-up for the developer of this software!

Cons: Free edition has a limitation, typical just like other software. Free edition of this software is already powerful and secure your workstation. If you need to be constantly secured and safe, better subscribe.

Cons: I don't fully understand why there is a paid version or what it does. Would be better to build additional options that are easy to understand why they would be paid for. Currently doesn't seem to be much incentive to buy the full version.

Overall: Keeps my computer safe and I just get to let it run and forget about it.

Pros: I like that every day this software is scanning my computer for malicious files and it automatically scans and quarantines or deletes the files. And the price is low compared to the others and does a better job in my opinion. It is complet and leaves out nothing.

Cons: The think I like least of all was with some of the test cases that i work on I have to stop the malware program and it starts back up on its own so I end up stopping it over and over until i finsh my work but it is not that big of a deal

Overall: My over all experience with Malware Bytes has been wonderful. I myself will use no other Malware program.

Pros: This program is so awesome and user-friendly. It's incredibly easy to download and navigate, and it's clear how to run either a quick or full scan and remove threats. I've had some pretty bad viruses on my computer that Malwarebytes has had no problem COMPLETELY removing whereas other virus scanners still will leave traces of it on my computer. Whether you use the paid version or free version, this program is awesome!

Cons: Only complaint is having pages or downloads blocked that I know are safe because I've used them in the past. I can disable malwarebytes in these instances so I can continue with what I was doing, but it can be somewhat frustrating at times.

Overall: Even if you don't want to pay for the full version the free version is highly effective! Get this if you need an awesome malware protection tool!

Pros: It's free and easy to use. It will give you peace of mind at the very least that you have some protection on your computer. I often recommend it to anyone as a supplement to anti-virus software, but not a replacement.

Cons: It's often a program I would recommend to novice computer users, as it does an incredibly important job, yet ironically it's a program that requires a little bit of computer knowledge to do the right job.

Cons: A few months ago (in May 2017) there was a problem with the database updates that basically crippled/disabled the Real-Time Web Protection. However, this is the only time I have experienced any problems with the software and it was anyway resolved within a couple of hours.

Pros: Simple User Interface, Easy to Install and works in the background

Cons: Scan speed is a bit slow

Overall: I've been using this software for over 1 year and have advised many of my customer to do so. It's because the application is fast, light weight and easy to use. One of the defining feature is its simplistic UI. It's simple to install and just works in the background. I ever forget it is there on my system. It is not same as other anti virus software products which makes it impossible to allow a product to run that they think is unsafe. With Malwarebytes its not the same and great to use.

Recommendations to other buyers: I used Malwarebytes once when I first learned about it. It solves any virus issue quicker than most. Make sure to check the result for false positive before deleting.
