It is not very well rated at all, and does not submit samples for group analysis.

 

It has been listed as rogue before and has been known for disreputable sales tactics and advertising. It is also known to be difficult to uninstall in some cases.

 

Compared to free to use anti-malware applications like Malwarebytes, it comes up short. IMHO.

thanks for your advice ,,I have malwarebytes as my main anti virus. I just have S/H4 as a back up as I installed it to get rid of Websearch.and it did, where others couldn't. So I just needed to check as there is not much info online about it.

Hello ths2855:

 

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) is not now, nor has it ever been, an Anti-Virus application.

 

MBAM Premium is an Anti-Malware application meant to work full-time and co-operatively with a high-quality Anti-Virus application of your choosing.

 

quiteman7 has outstanding canned material that will point you towards reputable providers and will likely post it here.

 

HTH :)


All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.
