Also, I was thinking since MBAM seems to be a good product, if going the free antivirus route, coupled with the paid, real time Malwarebytes, is not a good way to go. Thank you for your list of free antiviruses, but you seem to say this should be a temporary, not permanent, solution.
The only thing mentioned in my reply was that we have a "range of popular" listings included.
Many of the members here are more than happy with a free version of any of the above listed programs, these were just an example put to you..
Personally, I have never paid for any Antivirus program, but I am often looked at as not following through with what I preach.
But I have used "Sample" or "Trial" versions of many programs, and I am happy using my free Microsoft program, regardless of perceived "rankings" on any site.
We always prefer to know what you want, and what you expect in performance or support in your selected Antivirus program, not what we tell you to do. Opinions towards Active Malwarebytes program are always good, and it will combine with almost all currently known Antivirus programs to fill that missing gap.
Read our Malware Removal Forum and you will see that all topics are usually asked to run Malwarebytes, or produce the last log from the program for review. Simply because it works.
Here is a link to all Malwarebytes Anti-Malware General questions, and it covers the link by Queen-Evie and other topics.
Always post to the program forums if you have problems with your selected program, or post here for general information -
Thank You .
