It's an excellent program and 10 bucks (if it's a legal deal) is a steal.

The full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Pro) includes a real-time Protection Module that uses advanced heuristic scanning technology to monitor your system and the ability to schedule updates. This technology runs at startup where it monitors every process and helps stop malicious processes before they can infect your computer. Keep in mind that this feature does not guarantee something will not slip through as no product can detect and prevent every type of malware. The database that defines the heuristics is updated as often as there is something to add to it. Also keep in mind that Malwarebytes does not act as a real-time protection scanner for every file like an anti-virus program so it is intended to be a supplement, not a substitute.

IP Protection (malicious website blocking) is part of the Protection Module and works after it is enabled. When attempting to go to a potential malicious website, Malwarebytes will block the attempt and provide an alert. IP Protection is also designed to block incoming connections it determines to be malicious. Enabling the Protection Module feature requires registration and purchase of a license key that includes free lifetime upgrades and support. After activation, Malwarebytes can be set to update itself and schedule scans automatically on a daily basis. The Protection Module is not intrusive as the program utilizes few system resources and should not conflict with other scanners or anti-virus programs. If any conflicts between Malwarebytes and another security program are reported, suggested solutions are usually provided in the Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions, FAQs thread.

As Broni said it's an excellent program and 10 bucks (if it's a legal deal) is a steal.

I've wanted to do that for a long time, but the support staff of both GFI and Eset (I use both on my different computers because I still have licenses hanging around with Eset on my Laptop), tell me that the realtime protection module must be disabled on malwarebytes in order to avoid conflicts. So much for having a supplament, right?

Yes it's good and I recommend Eset often if choosing a paid for program as it leaves a small footprint, meaning it is not intrusive and does not utilize a lot of system resources.

No. It is an anti-malware tool intended to supplement your anti-virus, not replace.

sniper, where did you find the malwarebytes for 10 dollars? << If you don't feel like that answering that question, I understand.


As for the question in the OP, my answer is 'yes!' I purchased the PRO version several months back and it's works great, esp. when I'm out and about recklessly clicking my way through the net. I brought mine through Malwarebytes website, so I paid the full 24.95, but remember, that a one-time fee, which I consider to be a pretty good deal.

As for the possible AV conflict, I've been using MBAM along with Avast! and they seem to be working well together.


uptopian86, have you seen the list of Free Anti-Virus apps out there? Avira, Avast, MSE - one of these should help you replace the kaspersky, and that's just a small selection of what's really available.

Hope that helps.

Do you think that the support staff of mainstream AV firms telling you to disable the realtime protection module of MBAM just has to do with what they have to say per the scripts they read from? That's why I would never be in the support business. I hate receiving and giving scripted responses with a passion.
