Malwarebytes Anti-Malware – The best cleanup tools available on the Internet

If your PC has been infected with something bad (spyware, malware, virus e.g.) and you don’t know what it is or how to get rid of it, I have one single advise for you: Download Anti-Malware from Malwarebytes and let it fix the problems for you. This piece of software, that by the way is freeware has helped me out so many times and I have never seen any commercial piece of Security software being so effective and scan a computer so fast as Anti-Malwarebytes from Malwarebytes.malwarebytes

Working with IT a have somehow automatically and without me having a say on the matter been announced as official “Fix all our IT problems when we do something stupid – go to guy” for family and friends. Not that I will not help my famly and friends, of cause I do that, but sometimes it is not the way I want to spend quality time with them. That is one of the reasons why I really love Anti-malware from Malwarebytes. It can really cleanup almost any mess you can install on a computer and if it can’t you better start re-installing your computer.

I don’t want to tell you how to use it, because it is very self-explaining. Just remember to update the definition before you start scanning. However here is a little video from explaining everything.


Let it be told that this is not an Antivirus program it is a cleanup utility that can you help you when your computer has been infected. If you want to have even better protection Malwarebytes also have Pro product that can perform real-time scan and scheduled scanning.

    Informative indeed and very useful for someone hunting for great stuff like this and I think this malware will be a great help for me. Keep it up!

  2. Aaron says:

    I think if you’re using a good antivirus then you don’t need any othe program spyware and malware program.

    Please don’t take it negative, I mean good antivirus like Avast!, Kaspersky come with full security feature including virus, malware ands spyware. Currently I’m using Avast! and very satified with its performance. 🙂

    • Thomas says:

      You are absolutely right Aaron. A good updated Antivirus is the best way to protect your computer, but sometimes thing goes bad anyway. Maybe people forget to update the program or it is somehow getting outdated and that is when you need Anti-malware to clean up the mess.

      • Pierre Davis says:

        @Thomas: I certainly agree with you. Since we don’t know if people would still update their antivirus. Anti-malware should really help us a lot!

    I totally agree. Malwarebytes is one of the best anti-malware tools, I’ve been using it for 6 months and it’s great.

  5. Samantha says:

    Thanks Thomas
    I had a nasty (well more annoying really) virus get past my Avira on my home netbook and hid all the content on my desktop, continuously performed a fake virus scan and wouldn’t let anything else run.

    Set up a new computer user name, downloaded Malwarebytes and got rid after trying everything else, so would absolutely recommend!

  6. Beth says:

    I’ve been using this one for about two years, i think. Best one. Works fast, works good, no garbage when installing. If only all software was like this.

  7. Greg says:

    I have AVG and Malwarebytes saved in all of my computers. The functions of these two are really reliable for me when we talk about online protection. Way back few years ago, I used to reformat my desktop but unfortunately I find the process very time consuming so these tools are great help for me.

  8. Bob says:

    Yes. I’m fully aware of Malwarebytes. It’s indeed a great software to remove malwares but i guess it doesn’t fix PC’s with spywares and trojans, does it?

  9. Frank says:

    I badly needed a anti-malware software for my laptop since my anti malware already expired. Thanks for sharing.

    MBAM is a great tool if you know how to use it and use it well. There is also HJT (hijackthis) and CF (combofix)

    But you need to know how to use the tools. Really great tools. 🙂

    It’s good, but have you tried Super Anti Spyware and a-Squared?

  12. phil says:

    what a great piece of kit this anti-mailware is and best of all it’s freeware

  13. Sam says:

    Malwarebytes is definitely the best tool for removing viruses – without a question!

  14. joel says:

    I am using AVG.. Do you have any oppenion on them vs. Malwarebytes?

    • Thomas says:

      No at all. As I see it AVG is mostly an antivirus program that protect you in real-time. Malwarebyte is more a program you run if your pc has been affected with something.

  15. joel says:

    Gotcha.. Thank you I will look into Malwarebytes more in depth….

  16. George says:

    The understanding on security is that the PC should be protected all the time with a good antivirus software. But even, a malware attack can occur and the Anti-malware is superb in cleaning up the PC. an informative article right there.Thanks!

  17. nick says:

    I guess it is quite important to use the right anti malware program. This one is for sure a good recomendation

  18. Allyson Stewart says:

    Hi, Thomas

    I’ve tried Norton 360 and Microsoft Security Essentials in the past, but not Malwarebytes. What a great option! Thanks to you, I downloaded Malwarebytes recently and was able to catch some stuff that Microsoft Security Essentials had missed, so I’m very impressed.

    Just wanted to let you know!!

    Thanks again, and have a good one.
