Pros: When it is working and communicating, the product cleans fabulously. Cut the number of infections down considerably.

Cons: This product has abysmal reporting functionality. In addition, we as early adopters have had to come up with our own fix for broken clients as support has been zero help.

Overall: Fabulous cleaning power and protection against known signatures.

Pros: The software is easy to use. Works all the time. Definitely removes unwanted or spam files. Removes malwares on the spot.

Cons: It's kinda pricey for what it does. It eats a lot of ram on the background which sucks because it slows down some others apps or operations.

Pros: I like that it's a robust program. It's been around for a while, so they've gotten pretty good at digging into the rootkits and cleaning them out.

Cons: It would be better if it had a complete anti-virus aspect to the program. The fact that I need to have this along with an anti-virus seems a little redundant in functions.

Overall: MWB keeps your computer clean and free of malicious software.

Pros: Compliments traditional antivirus products well.
Easy to (small) download on slower connections.
Does find things other products won't.

Cons: It does not have anti-virus features, nor does it have a firewall product. It is missing Zeroday stuff. It is also poor at looking for inserted media to scan for threats. It is also missing a artificial intelligent engine to look for threats.

One of the GO-TO malware cleaners on the market today.

Pros: The simplicity of use is great. In addition, it lets you know it needs updating automatically. It completely scans your drives and gives you reports and options to delete.

Cons: Anytime you use any software, it is about trust. Is it really doing what it says it is doing? I use many different scanners and cleaners. It seems like they all come up with different results. No complaints or negatives though.

Pros: Incredibly easy to use, fast to scan, accurate detection with very few false positives. Malwarebytes also has lots of simple cleanup tools like Adwcleaner available which save tons of time!

Cons: Malwarebytes can consume large amounts of resources on slower computers with mechanical hard drives or limited memory.

Overall: Malwarebytes has helped me removed literally thousands of viruses over the years. Many of my customers and friends have benefited tremendously from the automated scans.

Pros: It does work well with other programs. If you are using this software you still need an antivirus on the computer. Malwarebytes itself is pretty efficient and the scans do run smoother and faster than some other programs that I have used in the past. The interface itself is very user friendly most of the time you just have to hit scan and thats really all the work that you need to do.

Cons: It was marketed as next generation protection however for the cost and for the fact that you still need another antivirus this would not be a program that I recommend. It does not stop everything that comes through and can be a bit pricey especially when you have to take into account that you still need an antivirus ontop of it. They do have some deal when you are doing multiple machines or buying there antivirus as well.

Cons: Sometimes it slows down the pc while heavy scanning, but i guess that's normal. No cons really, just sometimes a hassle to approve and app that has been flagged red.

Overall: Getting a clean pc that runs faster again!

Pros: I love Malwarebytes! It is so simple to use and helps you find unwanted malware and spyware. Sometimes these are things we don't know are hidden in our computer and Malwarebytes takes care of everything for you.

Cons: The only downfall is if you want full protection you have to pay for it. However, the cost is well worth it at only 39.99 a year for one PC.

Overall: Keeping my computer free of malware and spyware.

Pros: Time after time I have turned to Malwarebytes to save my computer. Whether on my Mac or PC, Malwarebytes has cleaned my hard drive of nefarious files. I love how easy and effective it is at removing bad files - and its free!

Cons: The free version of Malwarebytes only removes currently installed malware. In order to prevent them from ending up on your computer in the first place, you need to pay for that feature.

Pros: Immediate action,Very fast and not keeping bold backlogs,the best thing is that if you receive a malware you will be irritated just because of some unwanted things but the most important thing is this if you have this Malwarebytes you don't need to worry of being hyper tension just sit back and let finish the things for it.

Cons: the most likable thing in this software is easy and timely update of all kind of malwares.if its old and not keeping the records for upcoming malware then its useless but timely updation can reduce your stress and give you more benefits as you didn't think before.

Pros: This software is very easy to use and works very effectively. I have performed scans after running scans with Norton, Windows Defender, Spybot, etc. and this still picks up the remaining malware after the other scans are done. The paid version offers more features but the free version is already very excellent.

Cons: When you are finished with a scans and "remove" the detected malware, it simply places it into Quarantine rather than deleting it. You then have to enter the Quarantine and delete the malware manually. Some people may forget this step and it should be made a little easier to just immediately delete the detected malware from the start.

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.

Very easy to use and actually really effective.

Cons: There are certain things Malwarebytes doesn't find, which is understandable since there are virus' that run much deeper than malware.

Overall: Solve many problems quickly but running a scan and seeing what it finds.

Pros: I like how out of the picture it is at all times. The only engagement i really need is to make sure the updates get processed, but besides that most of the work is done behind the scenes and it makes me worry less which i appreciate.

Cons: The only downside is the cost, it wasn't terrible and our company is definitely willing to pay it, but it would always be nice to be lower.

Overall: I have not had to worry about any malware or other viruses affecting my computer since we have started using the product. I guess that means its working!

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.

Pros: Something I really like is that malwarebytes is extremely easy to use, you just set it up and run an analysis, that's it, it will get rid of the malware that is infecting your PC. Also it's malware protection is top notch, since we installed we haven't have any issue, which usually happened since our antiviruses didn't protect our computers from malware.

Cons: It is not an antivirus so don't make the mistake of thinking you are protected from every type of threat online just because you have this software, always run it alongside an antivirus.

Overall: It really works as it's name indicates, it will protect your system from malware and delete the one that is currenlty infecting it. Just keep in mind that you still need an antivirus for full protection and you will be in good hands.

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: This software is the best when it comes into getting rid of a Browser Hijacker, no other anti-virus or software was able to get rid of the problem. Besides this, it has been a very reliable antivirus overall, the free version has great features. The user interface is beautifully done in terms of graphics, and it is user friendly. It also has a great tool, which helps you uninstall unwanted software in your computer, including the deletion of any registry related or connected to the unwanted software. I strongly recommend using Malwarebytes.

Cons: The premium option does not have a lifetime suscription, you can only pay for a year or 2 year suscription.

Overall: I was able to get rid of the most annoying browser hijacker, it was the only one who was able to do it, and it was entirely free!

Pros: I love that I can use Malwarebytes for free. Most other software companies care about price more than access. However, Malwarebytes considers those with more limited funds by allowing for a form of their product to be available for free. I always use Malwarebytes for my laptop to make sure it is protected and running as smoothly as possible. I was introduced to Malwarebytes when my computer was being fixed from a virus by a computer technician and I've been using it ever since.

Cons: The thing that I like least about this software is that it is not as well known to those outside of computer/tech circles. I think this software would do well to promote itself more to the common person who isn't as technology inclined.

Overall: It helped to fix my computer and allows me to ensure that I can protect my computer from viruses/malware! I love it so much! Thank you for providing a free form of the product to the world!!!

Pros: Whenever there's a intrusion, I always use MWB to make sure the system is clean. It can do a surface scan or deep dive, depending on your needs.

Cons: Not the best stand-alone AV out there, but the main purpose is to work in tandem with other AV software.

Pros: This product is able to find and kill every form of Malware and ransomware that I have come across. I used the dos based killer a few time and it works wonders for the infected machines.

Cons: This product does not do virus removal or internet protection so its no an all in one suite. You will still need a virus protection tool.

Pros: Malwarebytes as it's name suggests can detect, kill and protect you from all types of malwares that are circulating online. Mostly while installing softwares it can be a pain as an IT person, since normally people don't know what they are doing and just clicking ok to everything and filling their pcs with malwares, that's where this tool shines, it allows you to get rid of them completely, something that the antiviruses can't do.

Cons: As I mentioned it needs to be used alongside an antivirus, don't expect it to protect you from every kind of threat, in this regard it is kind of limited.

Overall: It has helped me so many times to wipe all type of malwares that my colleagues install on our servers. I highly recommend it.

Malwarebytes has saved my users from malware more times than I can even count.

Pros: Malwarebytes is a very simple yet complete package aimed at protecting users from millions of threats that exist on the internet. The interface is very easy to navigate and understand. 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.

Overall: Peace of mind for my end users.

Pros: Especially for the price, this is a surprisingly complete software, that is very easy to use and seems to be very thorough in both detection and quarantining for the layman. I've never had a suspected issue that was not resolved on the first try.

Cons: While user-friendly, it would be great if this software had a little more guidance to allow protection or some systemic control to move into safe mode or similar to avoid allowing escaping programs. While I've done this myself just off of tutorials, an on-screen guide or self-guided process would be very helpful.

Pros: I love how fast this software scans, and the interface is highly user friendly. To top it all off, the free version does a good job of identifying and removing malware. However, I would recommend the paid version mainly for the real time protection that is offered, and if data protection is a priority then you need real time protection and Malwarebytes offers just that and more.

Cons: What I like least about the software is more so the lack of real time scanning on the free version, however, as mentioned prior, if protection is a priority then the paid version is definitely where you should go.

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?

Pros: For a start it is free, which is always a bonus! But I image for many users this is a great boon. highly advise installing this before you get any problems, whilst it can handle most situations, any real nasty malware it can struggle to remove. Installing this before hand acts as a great preventor.

Cons: Whilst this performs well as an anti-malware software, it's not the most effective for anti virus. Also having to restart the pc after every update can be quite bothersome. If you are in the middle of something when the update completes, you want to finish it andk now your pc is still secure without having to stop, restart and then continue.

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: 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: 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.

Cons: This only happened once since we have had it, but Malwarebytes pushed a software update to its Premium users a few months ago that maxed out RAM in a minute or two, causing machines to freeze up or even shut down completely. They repaired it quickly and we haven't had issues since.

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.

Pros: I control this program on over 5 computers for a team. Updating is easy and quick and I love being easily notified when something needs attention.

Cons: I wish it were a little easier to exclude pages from being blocked. It's easy to get confused and takes more time than I would like to get to certain pages.

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: Been using this for years. Install, run the software, remove the malware. That easy. Very thankful for this product.

Cons: Like expected, it is now no longer free. I'm currently using the free trial and am bummed that I will have to pay for it in 2 weeks.

Used it many years ago,when all else failed. Bought in,and never looked back.

Pros: Very effective,and really easy to use.
Get to know the dashboard,and you can fine tune to your hearts content.
Or,simply let it do it's own thing.

Cons: If you want to swith between PC's you MUST remember to deactivate your licence,BEFORE you try to reinstall.
Otherwise you have the messing about of emailing and explaining your stupidity,lol.

Overall: Peace of mind.

Pros: I've compared performances between programs and often enough Malwarebytes catches threats other anti-virus products don't.Quick to install and scans very quickly given how thorough it is .

Cons: Whilst the initial installation is quick,the subsequent updates can take a while .Still ,if it means your system is as protected as possible ,it's a small price to pay .

Pros: Malwarebytes has been known for years as the best malware remover. It took over after spybot died. Never had any problems while running this. I love it, the free version is awesome. I have the paid as well (old lifetime license, which is amazing they still support it). I always recommend this software and use it when fixing/cleaning computers.

Cons: The free trial at first can be confusing to users. They call me eventually when it runs out and worry because they see "buy now" and I have to tell them, no, the free works fine as well. But other than that, no issues.

This software digs deeply and roots out malware. I love it.

Pros: It runs automatically in the background, even updates itself. I think it keeps up with the malware out there as well as any company can. It scans daily.

Cons: I don't really see any cons. I can't do this on my own. Malware Bytes does it with the latest technology and keeps up. I have never tried to contact support so I don't know how that is.

Malwarebytes was highly recommended by my computer technician. So far I have found it very helpful.

Pros: I have had absolutely no problems with malware since I invested in Malwarbytes. It was easy to purchase for two years and when the time came due, they sent an email with an opportunity to continue. I do use this along with a virus protection company. It is my understanding that I need both.

Cons: It would be nice to pay for one program that covered everything. I don't think it's always clear exactly what Malwarebytes is doing in compared to Eset for example.

Overall: I've had obvious attacks that Malwarbytes have detected and stopped. The price is also reasonable.

Pros: It didn't slow down my machine too much. It always found multiple phishing sites that our antivirus missed.

Cons: The update requests appear when I am in the middle of something. I haven't figured out how to delay them.

Pros: Malwarebytes is so versatile! It acts as a virus scanner, performs security audits, privacy audits, and is very thorough when checking technology.

Cons: I wish it was free to use, but given its premium quality it is not something I would expect, but rather something that would be nice.

Very effective way to keep viruses off your workstation

Pros: Works well across all the stations at our office can find an remove just about any malware without the use of another program.

Cons: Not many cons the only thing is it doesn't have a free version after you do the initial trial. Other than that is does what is says it does.

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.

I feel safe and secure!

Pros: I haven't had any issues in the 3 years that i have had this program! One of the best malware and spyware detection elimination software that there is. I ran a scan the first time and it had removed 6 malwares that had my internet browser locked up.

Cons: I don't have any complaints towards this software. Has done the job for me thus far and i am definitely happy with the results

I'm glad to know we are protected

Comments: i'm generally pleased with this product.

Pros: i like how this program promises to protect our company information from threats. we are not a huge company but we have a lot of sensitive information.

Cons: i think that if i could be a little more involved or updated in what it finds. the reporting and logging are difficult to understand even in human readable format.
