Among the many free anti-malware programs available today from third parties, one of the most popular malware bytes is Anti-Malware. Malwarebytes’ is fast, light and yet very effective. It is updated several times a day. Not only does it scan your computer quickly, it also removes any malware it finds for free!

I decided to test Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free Version.

UPDATE : Read Malwarebytes 3.0 Review.

Checking anti-malware malware bytes

I downloaded anti-malware or MBAM malware bytes from the link at the end of this article. Double-click on the downloaded installation file (mbam-setup.exe) to start the installation. The program installs quickly. Follow the instructions during installation to make sure you are on the right track. Don’t forget to check the following boxes:

  1. Update anti-malware malware bytes
  2. Run checked anti-malware malware bytes.

Once the installation is complete, your anti-malware program starts automatically. A short message prompting you to update the program before performing an analysis will appear on your computer screen. Update the program automatically and press the OK button at the end.

The main Malwarebytes window now appears. It displays the main menu of the program. This includes,

      • Quick scan
      • Full scan
      • Flash scan

Perform a scan of your choice ! At the end, you will receive a report. If malware is detected, you will be notified. You will also return to the main screen of the scanner.

If infections were detected during scanning, the malicious bytes delete them and add the deleted items to the quarantine of the program. When eliminating infections, MBAM may ask you to restart. Let that happen.

Continue later. The program also opens the analysis log and displays it in Notepad. Check the log as desired, then close the Notepad window.

The latest version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware now has new logos and icons and displays Windows 8 boot screen notifications. It shows better compatibility with many other real-time security products.

Unlike other free antivirus programs, however, does not provide active real-time protection against malware against known threats, and heuristic protection against new zero-day malware . Therefore, it is best to install it as a second standalone antivirus, just in case you need a second opinion.
