Malwarebytes is the new kid on the block when compared to Symantec, and surprisingly it is now one of the ‘big’ antivirus vendors in the security market with a good 2 digit market share. Malwarebytes is a likeable security app with some interesting and valuable features, but make no mistake, the free version is not a full antivirus replacement as it lacks real time protection.
Malwarebytes comes with four layers of malware-crushing tech. Smarter detection. They are Anti-exploit that shields vulnerable systems and software from exploit attacks. Anti-ransomware that stops ransomware attacks before your data is held hostage. Anti-malware/Anti-spyware that detects and removes malware and advanced threats, and Anti-rootkit that removes rootkits and repairs the files they damage.
- Detects and removes malware in real-time with advanced anti-malware, anti-spyware, and anti-rootkit technology. Scans for threats automatically using artificial intelligence (AI) so you’re protected without having to even think about it.
- Stops unknown and known ransomware with proprietary next-gen technology that works proactively to shield your files. This is a powerful, comprehensive defense that blocks ransomware, and not a simple decryption tool. So you’re protected from tomorrow’s “Ransomware Attack!” headlines today.
- Wraps your browser and software programs in four layers of defense, stopping attacks that use vulnerabilities in those programs to infect your computer.
- Detects and prevents contact with fake websites and malicious links. You are proactively protected from downloading malware, hacking attempts, and infected advertising. Worried about wandering into a “bad” Internet neighborhood? Now you don’t have to be.
- Lightning-fast Hyper Scan mode targets only the threats that are currently active. Faster analysis. Still gets results. Run a scan in the background while you boot up your favorite game. It’s done by the time you’re ready to play.
Download Malwarebytes for Windows for free [ No License Key Required ] and you get 14 days of full real-time protection. After the 14 days are up, Malwarebytes for Windows reverts to a very limited but still free version that will only disinfect your computer after an attack.
