I noticed I can no longer remove malware for free with Malwarebytes. Is there another program like it available for free?

Nothing has been changed with the way Malwarebytes Free edition operates.  Detection and removal are free as always.  

 

If you have a problem with the program failing to operate correctly, try a fresh install. If the issue persists, ask for support on the official MB forum.

What does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0 mean for me?

Does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium (v2.0) replace Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro (v1.75)?
What's new with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0?
Will you continue supporting my Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.75?
Why is Malwarebytes now charging an annual license fee for its products?
I have a lifetime license, am I still covered?
Can I buy a lifetime license of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium?
How many computers will one license of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium cover?
Is there a free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0?
Can I update my Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to 2.0 now?
I've lost my key/ID, how can I get it again?
How do I report a bug?
How does 2.0 affect business customers (MEE and MSB)?


When you're having issues with Malwarebytes, one of the solutions generally suggested by the Help Desk to try first is to uninstall/reinstall as follows:

Try Malwarebytes-Chamleon ( free edition ) this is what I got, I run a scan daily and also got Malwarebytes Anti Root Kit ( Beta ) it,s free edition, I run it 1 time a week. I got ADWcleaner from Bleeping Computers, I run 1 time a week.

I watch computer tutorials, all the time. Theres lots of fakes everything out there. Fake, Adobe Flash Player, AVG 2011 you can watch that on You Tube. An internet tech is demonstrating that. In You Tube, search ( messin with fake AVG 2011 ) the only freeware site I go to is ( snap files ) from experience I have learn other freeware sites have many virus,s. And stay away from CNet, no virus,s but a lot of add on crap ware. Thank,s Chuck

Malwarebytes Chameleon Technology is a feature which deals with malware that targets Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools to keep them from running properly. Chameleon includes renamed versions/file extensions of the tool that can be used when the normal .exe file is blocked from running by the malware. Chameleon is embedded with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0, and the driver will automatically load if you use the Self protection settings in Advanced Settings.

Antirootkit technology in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0 is identical to that of MBAMAntiRootkit (mbar)...it is also integrated into Malwarebytes Anti-Malware's scanner (under Detection Settings) but it is not enabled by default.
