The suite maintains the safety and stability of the work of an operating system. It runs a scan of selected drives or the entire system in the application with built-in algorithms to identify and contain malware, Trojans and similar threats. It supports database updates.

Malwarebytes Anti-malware is intended to protect your system from several types of threats, particularly those that your main antivirus software might miss. Besides virus signatures, the tool uses artificial-intelligence technologies to identify suspicious behaviors, which allows it to detect viruses even before they are included in any database. Another advantage of using smart virus detection is that the application can work quite effectively in the event the database has not been updated.

The program has two main scan modes: one of them is quicker and shallow, while the other takes considerably more time but does a more thorough job. Besides, it can also offer real-time protection, although it is not available if you are using the free version. Besides, it includes a memory protection module, which prevents the use of your RAM by any potentially dangerous process. Another feature available is File Assassin, which can come in handy to delete those files Windows has blocked. In addition, it can also help you have a safer browsing experience by deterring web threats. Finally, apart from on-demand scans, you can also schedule checkups to happen at a specified frequency. more

Too much HYPE for a program that stinks. I have Wise Uninstaller and it does a 100 percent better job and is free with Wise Care. Purchase wise Care for a onetime fee for life, never a problem with tech support or Keys for activation. Malware does a terrible job in program deletion. I recently deleted a program and rebooted and only to find more than 20 percent still in the registry. Not worth it.

Still the best all things security software after all these years. Easiest to use/do the settings and the efficiency is undisputed.
