Malwarebytes’ Anti-malware is a simple and easy-to-use application, which helps to fight against malware. The latest its version is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.65.1.
Just like similar pieces of software, Malwarebytes’ Anti-malware is a very customizable tool, which has several extra utilities for manual malware removal. The program is available in many languages and works just fine with other anti-virus and anti-spyware software.
This program stands out by its speed and has been found to be a really lightweight application. Unlike most of the programs, it provides a live protection and full scans for all drives. The database of this program is updated on a regular basis. Basically, new updates come every two months what is quite often for such programs.
However, there are some drawbacks we have noticed: Malwarebytes’ Anti-malware's live protection comes only with the registered version and, well, it’s still a lightweight program, so it can’t be compared with the more serious software out there.
The latest, Malwarebytes Anti-malware 1.65.1, version allows to control the entire machine, not individual user accounts and gives an ability to enable/disable Filesystem Blocking and Website Blocking via the Protection tab. Besides, realtime protection may now be cleanly terminated via the 'Exit' option in the tray without leaving any running processes. It is promised that future versions will be able to upgrade without requiring a reboot after installation.
Malwarebytes Anti-malware is a great little tool and quite powerful for it’s size.
