Malwarebytes Anti-malware



I’m usually a bit leery of new antispyware products. I do a first look at the rogue antispyware lists and just try to be as cautious as possible when moving away from the tools that I’ve tried and tested. I downloaded malwarebytes anti-malware very reluctantly to clean up a machine with “virus isolator” that nothing else seemed to be able to completely remove. It just seemed like the 10 headed hydra or something that kept coming back, so I found malwarebytes anti-malware recommended and must say it did the task quite well.

BTW, I have since added this into my virus, spyware and malware removal toolkit and should add it to my page of antivirus removal tools which also lists free virus removal tools.

I still need to read more about their licensing, but it installed, updated, scanned AND cleaned the pests out for free. There is a link to purchase the software and as I said I will need to read the license more fully to see what you are entitled to as an end user with the free download.

MalwareBytes Anti-Malware page If you’re fighting spyware and can’t seem to get the upperhand on the pest, this just might be the tool to give you a clean system again.

That much said, the old advice still stands that after a system has been compromised it is best off to format and reinstall from scratch lest you leave some pest/backdoor behind to bite you in the future.
