Having an anti-virus will not protect you from all threats online. Although the virus will be blocked by your anti-virus software, there are other ways that your computer can get infected. Having an anti-malware program will stop spyware, worms, trojans, and other malware from infecting your computer that your anti-virus won't catch. But, there are hundreds of anti-malware programs that can be installed on your computer. Which ones actually protect your computer? Are they even worth the price? Today we review Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO, an anti-malware program that sticks out among all the others that accelerates in all aspects while at a very affordable price.
The layout of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is very simple and straight forward. The looks of the software is very simplified and easy to understand. The program is also very light and doesn't consume a lot of resources. Unlike other malware scanners, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not a resource hog and I was able to use my computer with no lag while I performed a full scan on my PC. I was able to run Photoshop to edit pictures while having Chrome and Firefox with no hindrance on my PC's performance. My results may vary from computer to computer, but the review is based off my experiences with the program.
While scanning, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware stayed mostly below 5% of my CPU usage. At time there were spikes around 6%-7% but like I said, there was still no lag or slow down for my computer. With live scan results, you can see what files are being scanned and if there are any infections on your computer. You can also schedule when you want Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to scan your computer or schedule auto updates to keep the definitions up to date.
When the scan is finished, you will see the infected files Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has found and gives you the option to ignore or remove the founds threats. It also gives you the location of the found threat on your computer and also the kind of threat the file is to you. In the quarantine, you can find the files that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has found and flagged that are on your system.
All in All:
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a great tool and companion for your computer's anti-virus. It keeps you safe when you are online and removes threats that your anti-virus may not catch. With Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, you won't have to ever worry about trojans, worms, or spyware on your system ever again. While priced at $25.00 USD, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO is very affordable in my opinion for a license that will last a lifetime. So with great features, outstanding performance, and a reasonable price, I award Malwarebytes Anti-Malware with 5 stars out of 5.
