Yesterday, at the recommendation of a BC Advisor I used Malwarebyte Free to help get rid of a virus. I liked it so much that I purchased Malwarebyte Pro for $24.95.
The interface is clean, easy to understand and use. Installation and operation is extremely quick as is updatiing its database of malware threats. Besides detection and removal of viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, dialers and spyware (from the Malwarebyte site), the unique thing I liked about the pro version is StartupLite, a utility which very quickly eliminates unneeded applications from startup. That alone is worth the price.
You can check out the Amazon reviews at http://www.amazon.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware-Pro-2013/dp/B00AY016T0/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top . If you're interested in trying the free version or buying the Pro version, the Malwarebyte website is at http://www.malwarebytes.org/lp/lp4/?gclid=CNe9k-qW_roCFRSVfgodyDcAsw .
A reminder, you should always turn off virus protection software of any brand when you use anti-malware utilities of any brand.
