I have 2 questions left: 1. So what way of uninstalling malwarebytes is the best? Introducing… The Malwarebytes Katana Engine Our all-new detection engine finds more threats, in less time, with less performance impact than ever before.
Take a look inside. I can even relax about my kids surfing habits knowing we have a solid layer of security keeping an eye on things. Honestly, it is the first Antivirus that I have ever used that has given me full peace of mind. I had tried so many others and had never felt compelled to purchase the product beyond the trial until I heard of Malwarebytes through a friend.
The main thing is that I can be sure that by installing Malwarebytes on friends and families devices I don't need to constantly fix their malware-problems. Identity Theft. Computer Virus. Social Engineering.

I upgraded to the paid version, but my computer kept crashing, so had to uninstall. I've once again installed what I thought was a free version of it, but am getting prompted to pay for it. Does anyone know if a truly free version of Malwarebytes exists and if so where?
Edited by hamluis, 05 February - PM. Malwarebytes 3. If I am helping you and I don't respond within 2 days, feel free to send me a PM. Malwarebytes Free doesn't scan USB flash drives automatically as soon as you plug them in, but a right-click on the drive's icon in Windows Explorer can start a manual scan.
To test Malwarebytes for Windows Free's ability to protect systems without Windows Defender or other antivirus software running, we dusted off an elderly Windows 7 Pro Fujitsu notebook. Malwarebytes was able to block two potentially dangerous apps 0. If you choose to go with Malwarebytes Premium, be aware that its malware defenses are second-best compared with its competitors, with much lower detection rates and a higher rate of false positives.
Malwarebytes found Malwarebytes Premium also misidentified safe software as dangerous 15 times in March, five times the industry average.
The often-trigger-happy Microsoft Defender had only two so-called false positives. Malwarebytes Free sticks to its core mission and doesn't offer extras often found with antivirus software, such as dedicated webcam protection, a file shredder, a password manager or a secure web browser. But while it comes with no browser add-ons, Malwarebytes Free blocks known malicious websites that may harbor dangerous software or phishing attempts.
But it lacks the ability to scan email attachments for dangers before they're opened, and we've already noted that it won't automatically examine USB drives.
Cons None I've encountered. Summary I received a ransomware email which was very disturbing. Pros Light weight and easy to use. Detect malware and viruses. Cons I cannot find any of its disadvantages. Summary It is a very good anti-malware. Pros Found some spyware Cons I started with the free to try premium and they terminated it to use the free version.
Summary Never agin. Pros This is a light-weight program, the scans appears quite extensive, so it's likely it would find most problems. Cons Main problem is that it keeps turning itself off. Summary There is no point buying the professional version as it doesn't function as advertised.
Pros These guys are too big for their boots. Cons Load of rubbish Summary Load of rubbish. Pros It can be run alongside other anti virus software that isn't as buggy and will actually protect you without disabling itself for no reason. Cons This is supposed to protect you from some of the smartest code cracking scum on the planet who are intent on hacking your computer and stealing your stuff, but Malwarebytes can't even fix an issue that has been around since they first released this version V3 and that is it's constant turning off of "protection modules".
Summary After paying for it I am loath to remove it so I keep it on my PC in the vain hope they will fix the major issues with it but in the meantime I run other antivirus and anti malware programs. Pros This anti-malware and anti-spyware software only take up little system resources when I running a full scan for the whole hard drive, I still can do other work at the same time with no affected.
Cons No cons for this software. Pros This is a good anti-malware and anti-spyware software, it only take up little system resources when I running a full scan for the whole hard drive, I still can do other work at the same time with no affected.
