  1. Not really up on all this computer stuff but how do you get the malwallbites off my desktop and there's a sign on my screen asking if I want to install and it's blocking my screen and I can't remove it

  2. Well u should have pressed a "scan" button to delete the malware, i think the scan it self is more powerful than real time protection.

  3. Humiliating for the price they charge.. I still think in conjunction with defender it works well, but some thing like kaspersky total is cheaper and does everything.

  4. I got my pc infected by phobos…which will be the best anti malware to clean the pc i have seen your how to clean your infected pc but looking at this gives me a doubt of whether i should buy this product plz help…..

    Purchased license few years ago. I got so frustrated that after one year I have not renewed. About 2 years later I gave another try and at this point I'm still using it but I have to sat this is a real piece of junk. Perhaps this software does some job but whoever recommend it either works for the company or is a reseller OR knows nothing about computers.
    1 – the inferface is the worst you could possibly imagine. It is ugly, hard to manipulate. Thousands of lickcs in order to get into things.
    2- Two most important aspects of such software are: (a) finding a problem (b) resolving problem
    MB find a file that is suspicious but when you try to locate this file, it is so super limited. It is basically total crap. Every time I get to this point I wanna scream! It mus have been a real idiot to design such an interface.
    3 – Suppoer is responsive but definitely not the best. For 6 months I could not even access my NAS server due to the bugs in software. They finally fixed it but there are lots of other issues.
    4. This program is really bad in making decissions as which site is valid OR not (means supicious). Today I'm trying to run a test through and it bloscks the site or services, saying it is a threat. Also whitelisting sites andd programs is a real pain on the but. It is so cumbersome and inconvenient as it vcould be. Probably because the whole interface is designed for 90 year old Grandpa who cannot thin anymore.
    5. Company is almost completely unresponsive to user suggestions or requests. I asked them many times in last few years to change interface so I can manage threats more easily and they have not changed anything.

  6. I am curious as to what antivirus you use or how do you protect your self from viruses would love to see a video on that

  7. Do you have any plans to add worms into the party at some point? (I am aware those can actually be dangerous, as those can spread via networks and do not need to be run). There were several worms causing global issues.

  8. A client of mine got hit with GoGoogle Crypto Virus while using Defender and MalwareBytes Prem, both Defender and MWB Prem where disabled and mass encryption followed, I have no trust in MWB Prem anymore.

  9. I have malwarebytes premium which I have had for years and it has not failed me yet. Saved me countless times from malicious links and files. I use avast too but I find that it's a bit slower than MB when it comes to blocking stuff from executing or downloading.

  10. I have always used, for several years now, a Kaspersky Internet Security + Malwarebytes combo and it hasn't failed me yet.

  11. I find it very strange that people are defending Malwarebytes when it clearly failed the test which it should have passed as Malwarebytes themselves claim a lot of things with their software, obviously if you cannot defeat malware which is in your name then LOL.
    A software is meant to do its job, if it fails then its no good at its job, it does not matter if the testing done was not a realistic scenario or not, there software that have passed this test so this form of argument was bound to fail, just like Malwarebytes.

  12. really the only reason is that i dont like malwarebytes is that they only offer only scanning for the free version, but i do understand that you have to pay for some things
    still, kaspersky and other AVs do much better against malware + they offer a ton of security for free, sooo malwarebytes isnt really the best anymore :/

  13. Actually tbh this won't really happen in the real world lmao. I won't be expecting 100+ viruses to execute at once therefore you are 99% guaranteed safe just using a regular antivirus.

    These kinds of AV testing ain't really focused on real situations, you have to be so dumb on the internet to get a very dangerous virus.

  14. Do you have any test with Real Time Protection Turned On? I mean, if you are screwed with any virus like that, the best option will always be a clean format (for common people, of course, not servers or other drives that can't be formatted). I will share my experience with that: once I disabled Bitdefender to install a crack (my fault, ok, sorry!) and the virus simply uninstalled Bitdefender and completely disabled Windows Defender and even prevented me from reinstalling both! Not to mention my PC just turned into a piece of s***, overheating, slow… Windows update also was off, and every time I tried to reinstall Bitdefender I got an error message. Then I installed Avast, then AVG, then Kaspersky… but none of them found the virus, and it was still running! The only one who found and removed it was Malwarebytes. That was a coinminer virus and another one that stole a some of my personal data, including email password, credit card info, they even tried to purchase things with my card! And after MB removed the virus I could install Bitdefender again. But at the end of the day, I had to do a clean format to be 100% sure there was nothing left on my PC. Malwarebytes at least cleaned the virus and I could perform a safer backup before formatting… but the lesson here is: if you turn off the Antivirus to run a suspicious file, there's no way to be sure you're safe anymore. If it is an "effective" virus, antiviruses will not matter anymore, no matter how good they are . And now, I just bought Malwarebytes (mainly to support it because it kinda saved my ass) and I want to know if it is a good tool for real time protection (only premium has this function). Don't get me wrong, your tests are amazing and have their purpose, but for me and for other people, the best thing to know about antiviruses is how good they perform with real time protection on. If you turn off you AV software like that, there's no way to know you're safe. I'm never turning off real time protection like that.

  15. This is not a pro-active scenario. You had to turn off the real-time protection to get the samples on… This is more like installing an AV after already having been infected by viruses/malware. You're effectively removing (a) layer(s) of their protection. This is not a real-life attack vector!
    And I'm not saying this as a fanboy. I recently uninstalled MWB due to DNS and performance issues. (Resolving host… in Chrome took ages + after some time apps would not start anymore, forcing me to reboot).

  16. Malwarebytes seems to get legitimately worse with time. This is most definitely not a good look for the software, regardless of how the shills want to condemn the testing format.

    If your software can't do what several other products this channel has tested can, then that's a clear sign of inferiority.

  17. Thank Leo, Just curious , how do you get these files to test ? We are evaluating few solutions and we need to test it.

  18. I am shocked! Usually Malwarebytes has a high reputation. Then again I know it's not anti-virus software. I'm glad to know their product is full of flaws compared to Kaspersky and Bitdefender

  19. Malwarebytes is a mess and trash despite promoting and paying others to say a good word about it. Tried 3 years since just discontinued since 2020. Most of the results will be false positives and PUPs and miss Trojan and spyware. Plus despite reporting a certain software to be allowed via settings of detected to run or crack or patch or or activator when blocked via notification down right, it still reblocks them again and again. I tried premium and free both and used till December 19 with new UI. But their system and customer service is trash and completely unapologetic. I wouldn't personally recommend it . Instead go with something that's promising and does the job as it has done before. Even Malwarebytes mobile app is crap.

  20. Malwarebytes can detect malwares but can't able to fight against them.

    That's Why you are using it as a scanner not as the protection software.
