Hello all--

After experiencing many problems and lost money with Ad-Aware Plus and Ad Watch, I finally uninstalled it from my computer. I have had way too many issues with this program! I heard rave reviews about it but in my opinion, there were too many bugs preventing it from running correctly and catching malware infections. To top it off, Ad Watch was bogging down my computer and sucking up tons of memory.

I'm currently using Malwarebytes Free edition, which seems to run smoothly and catch infected files. Should I go ahead and purchase an upgraded edition of Malwarebytes? What program do you recommend?

MBAM's paid version with the resident protection module is intended to be a supplement to a good antivirus program like Avira free or Avast, not a replacement

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
