“Crushes Malware. Restores Confidence.”
Maybe the team of Malwarebytes was not very sure afore they could fine-tune the above punch line on their site, instead if you opt for culling Malwarebytes the below will explicate your situation quite well that will let you regret forever.
“Crushes Confidence, Restores MALWARE.”
Such an awful brand image to engender when promotions campaigns and big promises are made to collect a bunch of target audience and just crack that immense sale!
I've only been bitten by one piece of malware recently. It was those fake antivirus things that were sent to me from a friend's infected machine. It instantly infected when it hit my inbox. The very next thing I could look for was to surf on net to get some recommendations that would help me to choose the right Anti-malware kit, to my surprise Malwarebytes is such a fake company that has actually filled in fake reviews and great comments for publicity, well I did land up in that trap. Checking out the flashy and so fresh reviews I did get my hands on Malwarebytes, the product was totally and utterly ineffective against the infection.
Not really writing this to pan the product, but just to describe my experience with it, and but know from other people's experience that Antiviruses or malware can't always detect and eliminate most of the spyware and adware that's out there. The Malwarebytes Pro loaded up fine, and I updated without a delay then ran a complete scan on my system. To my surprise, nothing was found, but I still intended to keep it on board as another tool to fight infection. The problem I had; was I immediately found my computer was running real slow. Consider either you are online or just moving across folders your system just won't work!!It was a real frustration while I tried adjusting and playing with many of the settings in Malwarebytes, but failed to make any difference & couldn't get it to improve performance at all. Finally, I just shut Malwarebytes down completely and made sure it did not start/run upon computer "start-up" and concluded to uninstall it from my system.
Not only did it fail to protect me from the initial infection, it was blissfully unaware of the infection. It never came close to detecting it. It is by far the worst anti-malware tool you could encounter especially while when you are in deep bleep! It claims to be very light weight, well yes it is light weight because it doesn't hold anything useful neither would it scan a single malicious detection.
I kept on trying to find a customer care to reach their team but further realized that they don't offer any contact number, all you could is buy their product going against the reviews and most of them posted by their self and then when you can't call them drop a line on their forum or email them which they would never even look at! So their sale is done now how does it matter to them to serve their customers.
Not to be very surprise the Malwarebytes team also sets up multiple accounts to review their self with 5-star rating how could you ever ignore their forum with appreciations to the height of falseness.
I concluded one of the biggest drawbacks from Malwarebytes is the lack of technical support and how unprofessional could it get when you would encounter that the source code or signature is corrupted, and all you have to do is install a new version. How pathetic it is that in the name of consumer support, all I get is never-ending lies, abusive emails, and false claims that my computer optimization utility RegCure Pro is "MALWARE". This certainly seems like a SCAM!!!
All I can say that Malwarebytes is a wolf in the sheep's clothes, and it's open up to the crowd to make a wise choice in not choosing this unauthentic & unprofessional company with their 'malware' package!
Well just not me but many have the same concern to be worried about below are just few links!!
