Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.2.0.1024 Beta – AppzDam

Malwarebytes
has built an impressive fan-base around its free anti-malware
application designed to fend off viruses, spyware, Trojans, worms,
dialers, rookits and other web-based threats.

Before
proceeding any further, users should know that the free edition does
not include scheduled scans, real-time protection, removable drive scans
and malicious website blocking. These features and more are available
in the paid version called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium.
The
main advantage of the free application is that it can be run as a
secondary line of defense against online threats, by pairing it with the
real-time safeguard of another av utility’s.

Hassle-free installation and highly intuitive GUI

Setting
up Malwarebytes Anti-Malware shouldn’t be a problem to any users, no
matter how inexperienced they may be with antivirus applications. As for
the interface, the tool is as intuitive as they get, thanks to large
buttons and short descriptions that explain each option.

Two scans modes for basic PC protection

Threat
Scan is the app’s comprehensive scanning method, as it looks into
critical areas of the system where malware is known to hide. The
alternative is Custom Scan, which permits users to handpick the exact
drives and directories to look into, along with the scan objects
(memory, startup and registry settings, archives, rootkits). In
addition, it is possible to personalize the tool’s behavior when
detecting potentially unwanted programs and modifications (PUMs).

Advanced scanner configuration

Users
who want to further customize Anti-Malware’s behavioral pattern may
tinker with settings surrounding exclusions, rootkits, archives and
advanced heuristics. It is possible to enable and examine scan logs,
resort to a proxy server for virus database updates, disable
notifications, integrate the app into the Windows Explorer context menu
for quick scanning, and so on. Items sent to the quarantine can be
examined before deciding whether to keep or delete them.

Performance and conclusion

Our
most recent tests have shown that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware delivers
very good results when it comes to virus detection. Its main downside,
however, is that it frequently hangs during various operations (such as
scanning or verifying the latest virus signatures) and it is generally
very slow when it comes to removing the infected files.
To
conclude, there are two sides to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware’s story:
hardcore PC users who often travel to the dark side of the Internet are
better off with faster and more stable utilities. However, by pairing it
up with a reliable third-party real-time guard, the program can become
quite handy to casual users who want to double-check.
