MalwareBytes Anti-Malware

There are loads of malware removers on the net today and most of them are lightweight applications, which usually means they’re fast and don’t have many features. One such lightweight application is Malwarebytes’ Anti-malware.

Like all these similar pieces of software, Malwarebytes is fast and doesn’t use a lot of resources, but unlike most, Malwarebytes’ Anti-malware provides live protection and full scans for all drives. Another great thing about this program is that it’s database is updated on a regular basis – at least every two days, which is already very often for such a program, but sometimes they update even more frequently.

Malwarebytes’ Anti-malware is somewhat customizable and has several extra utilities for manual malware removal. The program is available in many languages and works just fine with other anti-viral and anti-spyware software.

There are a few drawbacks, however: 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.

Malwarebytes Anti-malware is a great little tool and quite capable for it’s size.
