What are people saying about Malwarebytes 4 Premium

Tomasz Lisowski "Licensed per computer". What if I have a few operating systems installed on my computer? Can I install and use your software on all of them. In this case, obviously, only one operating system would be running at a time ...

What about virtual machines? Can I use the same license as on the host computer?

al nonymous i have one license already and like to buy a few more but wondering why when i DL the new definitions update its always about 6-7 MB regardless if i just DL one day ago...that's much too large a file and its the only flaw in MBAM that i am aware of...what is the reason for this?

David Eaton Most Antivirus now come with some type of Malware finder, such as Norton, Webroot and many others. What would be the benefit of having the pro version? I know you should not have 2 Antivirus softwares on 1 machine, is the same true with Anti-malware?

Do you have any deals for multi-machine? I have 3 machines in my house, so is this a one-time fee for $42 bucks or a yearly deal?

Roberto this app saved my bottom a couple of times (with the free version). when i had a few bucks, i bought at full price. Sometimes the MBAM process take a lot of cpu and i have to kill it from process manager (sometimes has conflict with phrase express).

But i still recomend malwarebytes. This did the job better than spybot when i needed it.

Nico Westerdale @Gary, @David, This is the largest discount MalwareBytes has ever given, and they don't give discounts for multiple copies.

@David, The major difference between the versions is real-time protection and IP blocking, which is only available in PRO (plus some minor features).

@Thomas, I'm unsure about how this would work on a VM, I think you'd have to contact MalwareBytes staff on their forum here:

Brian H "Sometimes the MBAM process take a lot of cpu and i have to kill it from process manager" - I am often not a big fan of these "continuous protection" processes, for the exact same reason. But this software is getting great reviews! If I purchase this software, is there a way for me to configure and use it WITHOUT the MBAM (continuous) process running, and just run the scans on a schedule, or when I prefer to run them; or are you forced to run the MBAM process (only being able to manually shut it down from process manager each time you start Windows)? Thanks.

cleverbridge * Hi all!

I am the e-commerce manager at Malwarebytes. Apologies for the confusion with pricing. It is true that Newegg has offered a similar deal which is run through our distributor.

I can tell you the last direct download deal we did for this discount was BitsDuJour in February 2010.

James - all future versions of the software are included in this price!!

Malwarebytes works well with almost all major Antivirus apps and has a light footprint.

Also questions about FREE vs PRO. The PRO version is real-time protection, IP blocking, etc . Our FREE version can only detect infections already on your machine (but does a darn good job at it). For more on the difference between Free and Pro check it out here: http://www.malwarebytes.o...bytes_free

And what about free support for our customers? Yes included! Our Support and Research teams are spread around the world and really don't sleep. Lots of Red Bull.

You have to admit this is an extremely good deal, this is why you don't see if often!

Hope this helps and apologies for the confusion with pricing.

Longtime User Malwarebytes Conclusion from an IT Pro's perspective:
The performance of the free version of the software is second to none compared to all other free and paid alternatives. It seems to me the additional features offered in the Pro version are ancillary to the key features that make the product ROCK. The strength of Malwarebytes is in its ability to repair already damaged systems. There are several alternative tools that excel in malware detention and prevention, but none of those programs hold a candle next to Malwarebytes ability to pull off even the most stubborn of malware. If the product generates persistent high CPU usage for preventative action, that would be a deal killer in my book. People above have asked, why don’t I just turn that part of the program off? Well, you indeed could do that, but then what would be the purpose of buying the paid version? After all, the free version is just as effective at removing viruses; it just does not have the CPU hog preventative scanner service included.
I have never figured out how Malwarebytes can give such an incredible “free version” product away. IT people live and die by this program. They would be happy to pay up for it, as it is, so fast and effective. However, the paid version supports features we are not truly interested in. In fact, I would have to go in and disable the “Pro” features if they were present in the free version. This would be to prevent making older systems with low system resources slower than a snail.

Brian H " Well, you indeed could do that, but then what would be the purpose of buying the paid version? After all, the free version is just as effective at removing viruses; it just does not have the CPU hog preventative scanner service included."

OK, just to clarify- is it true that the ONLY benefit of the "pro" vs the "free" is, in fact, the "preventative scanner service"? Also- for those who use the "pro" version currently, how much of a problem is the slowdown from the PSS service, and are there other system conflicts/problems that the PSS service might cause? Thanks to everyone for all the good advice and help.

Kind Regards,
Sep 26 2011 at 4:04pm Copy Link
Software Guy Alongside an antivirus like avira.
For some good info on antivirus programs to complement antimalware bytes, go here: http://www.antivirusware....us2011.htm

remember, for best protection you need an anti malware plus an antivirus, and most suites throw in a good firewall. And there are the antikeyloggers like zemana and spy shelter, both offered on BDJ in the past.

If money is no object, ESET NOD32 always gets high rankings - please see the antivirus article link above.

Yes, it is a shame we must have so many different types of protection. Antimalwarebytes does a very good job of blocking and removing malware, especially the pro version offered here which gives you real time site blocking. Complement that with a good antivirus and you should have good protection for most purposes.

Steven Avery ok, I'm in. A superb company. Good to support them and if I get some easier updates and scheduling and a lifetime something and the possibility of trying the proactive HIPS style .. all fine by me.

Only other comparable company these days is SuperAntiSpyware . and MB may have a little edge, both can save you system at times that it looks like malware may cause a format. (Be careful though, Malware tends to want to invite buddies)

However, there are many mals that simply need a cleansing, know to MB.

cleverbridge * To those who asked about the update sizes. We do our best to keep the initial installer as small as possible, but the updates are the fuel and the bulk of our anti-malware protection. Overall 6 to 7 mb is still pretty small, but I can also tell you that Malwarebytes is looking into other ways to shrink the size without sacrificing our top notch protection and make the updates as smooth as possible.

Our product is constantly in development and every comment out there by folks like yourselves are read and discussed by our internal teams.

Steven Avery Hi,

Solid malware products and support is very difficult today. There are many competing-complementary paradigms (HIPS, sandbox, scanning, firewall, heuristics, keylogger, specialty adventures) . Lots changes daily. Many companies are marketeers and cut corners and partner with cheesecakes and toolbars or make free programs that are ultra-light or really are invisible in crunch-time.

*** A big solid plus to Malwarebytes *** - probably #1 in scanning and fixing - with real support . If they resolve an issue once in a couple of years for you, it saves you a big headache. (Have at least the free program installed on every disk so that you do not have to worry about a baddie blocking installation.) And MB likely solid now in HIPS with the real-time stuff (I will have to read the specifics of the excellence and focus .. now that I bought).

Keep in mind that layering protection is a good idea, even with some overlap. That way a baddie that fools A, may not fool B. Security eggs can be in more than one basket.

Just to be fair, their "competitor" - SuperAntiSpyware - despite the strange name and a more complex problematic history, can save a lot of bacons too. Today I think it is safe to say that all the others ( even the pioneers .. eg. Spybot ) are playing 3rd fiddle, in the area of identifying and fixing .. a tricky area because the bad guys like to play games and change names and run around the mulberry bush. MB is simply awake, alert, alive .. giving you some peace of mind that it will find this and that. In fact, simply the new scheduling of scanning and updating from the Paid version will be helpful, who remembers stuff like this ?

Just a thanks to let an integrity company know that they are very much appreciated.

SoftCollector @ Nico Westerdale

Dear Nico,

1. I bought two licenses when the sale was on - thank you.

2. I have been trying the compatibility of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware with several antivirus and internet security suites and I can confirm that it works well along side AntiVir, Outpost Firewall Pro v7.5.1 and Norton Internet Security v2010.

3. However, it seems that compatibility with Kaspersky IS v2012 is not very good as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware failed to start once after the installation of KIS and once my computer froze and I had to restart.

Your comments are welcome,

SoftCollector Guys,

you should never install two antivirus or antispyware products simultaneously. That means you should not install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO alongside Avast!, Avira, Kaspersky, Norton antivirus products, etc.

You can, however, have a firewall installed alongside Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO. Generally, that should not create problems, although you may need to further test each individual configuration.

Personally I have found it to be about the best program for getting a computer up & running that has been infected, by malware & most of the computers infected have been running Norton, Trend Micro & other top payed for programs.

SoftCollector This is exactly why I bought two licences for MBAM Pro last time when it was here on promotion – it is supposed to have zero problems alongside other security products.

I tried using it alongside (1) AGNITUM Outpost Security Suite, and (2) AGNITUM Firewall Pro, (3) Avira Antivirus Free (three different installations, not concurrently).

Although it is true that MBAM Pro co-exists better with other security titles, still my computer would freeze, or I occasionally received BSOD.

I contacted MBAM support, and they advised me to create mutual exceptions for the security products installed. I did. Problems became more rare, but still persisted. Therefore, I have deinstalled MBAM, and I use it rarely.

There are several separate things to consider here:

1. You need a comprehensive solution with a two-way firewall (unlike the inadequate firewall solutions offered by Norton and Kaspersky (!) as of late – just test them with GRC's leak test and you will see what I mean ) These comprehensive solutions are called along the lines of "Internet Security".

2. If you have to have a separate firewall, antivirus, antispyware, antimalware, antikeylogger, etc. from different vendors (not advisable), then make sure that the antivirus you buy has been certified to be effective by a neutral testing entity, for example You will find out that most of the big names a) have failed tests at least once, or b) fail them regularly, or c) have never offered their product to be tested.

MBAM belongs to group c) above. The question is: how do we know it is good in the first place?

There are two ways to fail such tests: 1) to miss an infected file, 2) to find a 'false positive'.

On my computer MBAM regularly tells me that two of the dictionaries installed are viruses, which I know for a fact to be wrong.

3). Even if security products do coexist peacefully, scanning every file twice (or three, four, etc. times) will slow your computer down considerably, and chances are that security-wise things will not become "more secure" – please, see above.

On a brighter note: MBAM Pro is the only antimalware product currently sold with a lifetime upgrade, none of the other vendors will offer you such a sweet deal.

1) Yes, MBAM Pro's real time protection must be enabled so you can use Its IP blocking feature. It blocks IP addresses deemed unsafe in its databse.

2)Yes, provided that you uninstall MBAM Pro first.

Brandon H @SoftCollector: Good info.

No antivirus/antimalware will ever be perfect though, so it really comes down to the frequency of updates for me.

Very conservative applications will inevitably miss something.
Very aggressive checks will inevitably get a false positive.

I highly recommend people create a System Restore point before installing any firewall, especially the 2-way variety that usually install filters in the network stack.
If the firewall doesn't install properly, it can completely hose your networking - to the point where a reinstall is necessary if you don't have a restore point or registry backup.

Also, some software (iTunes in particular) still seems to have issues with LSPs like those installed for security filtering.
Again, frequency of updates. The more-often updates happen, the quicker the miss or false-positive will be corrected. :)

@Don Versluys: They have Consumer and Corporate versions, the PRO licensing is for Consumer, so yes.
Aug 27 2012 at 8:29am Copy Link
Luis @SoftCollector

All your points are valid, that's why it's a good idea to use the trial for a while with your specific configuration.
If you use your pc all day long the trial period should be enough to discover potential conflicts.

Your third point (multiple scans) it's certainly something to consider if the computer it's not particularly powerful, because multiple scanning solution can bring it to its knees.
In my case I found the MSE+MBAM pair is particularity light on resources and I never had a problem. For the firewall I use a hardware solution for the incoming data and a software built on top of the MS WFP (Windows Filtering Platform) for the outcoming. So there is no need for a third party kernel drivers.
IMHO those firewall's drivers are the cause of the majority of headaches (I found comodo and agnitum products particularly bad on that regard).

Anyway, very good points anyone should consider.

Will do my best to answer questions. Malwarebytes is designed to be run alongside an AV.

We have good relationships and/or personally test our product to run alongside the following:
Eset AVG Avast Norton McAfee bitdefender Total Defense Panda Trend Micro Kaspersky and VIPRE/GFI.

If you have trouble running us alongside an AV we have support team standing by to help for free on our forums and via email.

Further here is a brand new study on how good Malwarebytes is at zero day:

Also IP Blocking is an exceptional feature that is run by some of our security team who are quite famous in their own right for going right to the source. We block malicious IPs all over the world.

Malwarebytes PRO is proactively keeping you safe.

SoftCollector Dear Rebecca,

Thank you for joining the discussion and addressing our questions.

According to the Wikipedia definition "Malware includes computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, adware, and other malicious programs." So by virtue of its name MBAM should be able to fight off any and all kinds of malicious code.

Could you, please, clarify your statement that "Malwarebytes is designed to be run alongside an AV." Does it mean that we MAY have an AV product installed or that we MUST have an AV product by another vendor installed?

In other words: is MBAM by itself enough to keep my computer safe, or is it a complementary product?

Kind Regards,
Aug 27 2012 at 2:13pm Copy Link
Rebecca Kline We believe layered security approach is the best option. We are complimentary.

Thank you again for kindly providing clarification.

Can you, please, explain what kind of extra protection MBAM is providing? What threats is it designed to repel? Viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, adware?

All the products that MBAM can be installed alongside with are sold as complete security solutions according to the corresponding vendors.

I am only asking, because I already own 2 licences to your product and have tried on for months – and nevertheless I am still unclear what exactly it is that it does, how is my security better with it?

Richard Blake Neil Rubenking (PC Magazine) has been reviewing antimalware software for years. Latest reviews of MalwareBytes' products

Curious that he does not mention running this program (i.e. PRO with realtime protection) simultaneously with another antimalware. I've never heard this strategy endorsed by anyone before today. [For myself, I'd like to have two or three products installed, but run realtime components of only one at a time, chosen (in rotation) with a minimum of fuss, when I boot. That gives me several products' strengths without the overhead of running multiple products at once, which I'd rather avoid even if they don't "conflict".]
See also the various reviews available through this page
At $14.95 for life, though, why not add it to your toolkit? Consider it a donation to the developer of the free edition, making the PRO license free!

Software Guy I have always understood malwarebytes to need supporting virus protection. They state it clearly.
Personally, I like the complimentary nature of malwarebytes- it is like having an extra set of eyes looking for malware. In my experience, sometimes malwarebyte detects a dangerous site or rootkit first, other times it is the complimentary program, and sometimes both. And for $15 per computer, I am happy to have the extra protection, despecially the realtime protection afforded by malwarebytes pro.

I read above, it should be used together with another AV-program. Up to now I'm using Kaserpersy. So how does it make sense to use this program on my computer, when I have to use Kaspersky (or another AV-program) too? Can it do something, that K. can't? Or do I have to enable another virus-program only, if AntiMalware found something, to be able to remove this malware? Can't MalWare Pro do that?

Doesn't it slow down my computer significantly if two of these programs are running.

Btw., when checking my system for a malware with AntiMalware, it did not find any malware, so I think my former AV-program did it's job quite good.

You never know when you might want to use it in realtime, maybe you fancy going AV free but are not totally ready yet.

It finds way more malware than any other on-demand scanner (I test security software for fun)
False positives have always been low, and it's easy to add to ignore list.

My AV then found one rootkit while MAM found the other. MAM prevented outgoing traffic to those guys in those countries we all know about long enough for me to find the tools to remove the rootkits.

Catherine McClarey I used the free version of Malwarebytes just last week to get rid of a nasty piece of malware on my spouse's computer. (FYI: this was supposedly a relatively new malware purporting to be the "FBI", claiming to have found "child porn" on the victim's computer, and demanding a "fine" in the amount of US$4.95. The Feds would never bother with such small fines, and they would not use fines against those involved in child porn - they'd raid the house, confiscate the computers involved, and arrest the computers' owners - so the malware's claims were obviously bogus in several ways.)
The additional features of the paid version of Malwarebytes sound well worthwhile, especially with a lifetime license (no annual fees to renew the license!).

Chris Roy Jackson @ Stefan Hauber

Robert is correct in saying that MalWareBytes is a COMPLIMENT to NEEDED AntiVirus & FireWall Software, However:

I have seen problems on my Mom's Computer since a Tech installed Avast on her computer (after I had paid for and installed Norton 360 on it). I know that many people like various FREE Anti Virus Software, but I have been using Norton Anti Virus for over 20 years and it has NEVER failed me !!! It has detected and eliminated MANY threats over the years. The only Drawback with Norton 360 (which is also experienced in some of the other AV programs) is false Positives as a result of the "Norton Community Watch" (Cloud) Feature when you are installing a file that is unknown (or new) to the Community. Also when Installers copy an Install file to your Temporary Temporary Files location to install from. These drawbacks can EASILY be overcome.
I prefer to turn OFF FireWall Protection (in Norton 360) and use ZoneAlarm for my FireWall, ONLY because I have also been using ZoneAlarm for over 15 years. But that's MY choice.
Norton 360's Firewall may be sufficient for your needs, and if so would be an Excellent Solution for you, SUPPLEMENTED by MalWareBytes.
Today's Offer is a GREAT Deal! I Highly reccommend it!

The pricing in different countries is going to fluctuate, which explains why you're being charged £11.86 and not £8.25. That's because the base price is more expensive in the UK.

DroidLuvr @Chris Roy Jackson, and @deanuk, and @ Bob Jones, and @ Nico:

It has been mentioned about the laptop, but elsewhere it says "per computer." Under most circumstances, I wouldn't worry too much because NICO is good at his job!! :-)

However, this time, it is VERY clear on the Malwarebytes site that it is a single computer, but can be transferred from an old computer to a new one for life.

Here is the link: and here is their statement at that link:

"What is the length of term for the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Consumer License?
posted this on April 18, 2012 04:42 pm
It is a one-time payment for the lifetime consumer license, which includes our realtime Protection Module, Website Blocking Protection, scheduled updates and scans as well as software upgrades. We also offer discounts at the point of sale when you purchase multiple copies. A Consumer license may be used for one computer at a time. Licenses are transferable from old machines to new ones."

I really want to hear directly from the vendor, as I do not wish to violate their license policy! I, for one, care very much about such things :) For me, I need to know if I need to buy one or two more licenses to add to cover my PC and other laptop. (Right now, I only have it installed on one, because that is my understanding of their license...)

A Consumer license may be used for one computer at a time (NOTE: "at a time") !!!

Over the last 20 years I have installed Hundreds (if not thousands) of Softwrae programs and MOST of them were Computer License (vs. User License).
In MOST of them, If you read the "EULA" while installing, you will see that they allow the Primary User of a "PC License" to also install the software on a Laptop personally owneed by him (or her) as long as they willl ensure that it will NOT be used concurrently on both computers. The Copyright is explained by an example of a book that can only be read at one physical location at a time.

BDJ admin HAS already confirmed this above:
Around 7:00 am:
Nico Westerdale said, "Harald Vogel, The license is per computer, but as stated in the Fine Print you can also install on an additional laptop"

I hope that helps

Vivaldi I have a lifetime license for Malwarebytes Pro, so I can tell you that it does upgrade to the latest version without problems. They recently changed the shortcut icon with the new version ( My auth code is still there as registered. I think I originally installed it two years ago.

I, too, run Norton 360 with its firewall, and am a long-time Norton user. I keep Malwarebytes disabled, so that I don't have conflicts. Norton does a great job of day-to-day protection, but whenever I even suspect something may be strange, I run a Malwarebytes quick scan. If it says the computer is clean, the computer is clean. Full scans are best if you've never run the software before.

In for 2, and I don't even need them right now. It's just a really good program to have in case you do need it.

Olen O'Neil I have been using MBAM PRO for 3 years now. It keeps malware off my computer. I use it in conjunction with AVAST! AV Suite. They do not conflict with each other. I also run Win Patrol, which blocks pUp programs from starting and blocks malicious scripts from being run.

Joe M The fine print on this this page says:
"Each license allows installation on a single computer and a laptop."
If this is not true, it needs to be changed either by BitsDuJour or Malwarebytes to whatever is correct. This is misleading on someones part.

Anyway, this is a great buy on software even if it is for a single computer. If you need a second or third copy or license buy them now before this deal is over.
For this offered price with lifetime upgrades it is still a bargain.

G W It says the download link is valid for X time, but what happens with this as a life time licence and upgrades, do we get an email when new updates are available or does our software just update on its own?

If a few years down the track I need to do a system restore and install the current version as of today will it update to the latest version still from then? Or do I need to download and keep each new version locally on a backup for future installs required?

Vivaldi Once the software is installed, when you open the program it'll tell you there's updates or a new version available, and ask you if you want to download. I recently got a new version that way. I can't remember if I had to manually install, or if it was auto, but it did remove the earlier version. The whole process took a few minutes, and then I did my scan.

MC Have been using MBAM for about 5 years now and it is a steal at this price. The program gets along very well with other AV/ Internet Security Suites and it will find malware that they miss (not false positives). Just loaded it on a friends heavily infected machine and it ID'd 2 trojans in 4 areas after Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and SuperAntispyware (also newly loaded) had performed full sweeps ID'd and removed other malware. Never had any conflicts or problems with this program. I paid full price once and it has upgraded ever since without additional payment requirements. I just turned a couple of more friends onto this deal and they are buying it here. Nice program and glad that I have it in my toolbox.

Catherine McClarey @Karl Valentin, I have both the current version of Avast (free edition) and Malwarebytes (free version until I sprang for yesterday's promo deal on Pro) installed on my computer. I don't attempt to run simultaneous Avast & Malwarebytes scans, but I don't have any problems running either an Avast scan or a Malwarebytes scan while the other program is installed.
On the other hand, in response to an earlier commenter complaining about Avast not playing nice with Norton 360 - Norton antivirus products have been long known for causing conflicts with other software. Avast itself has warned me about this when I install Avast Free for the first time on a new computer (which typically will have a trial version of Norton antivirus installed). EBay sellers who use Turbo Lister have also had issues with installing/updating Turbo Lister with Norton products installed on the same computer (see the Turbo Lister troubleshooting pages on the eBay website for evidence of this).
I'm sure Norton 360 works great for the previous commenter - but he shouldn't expect it to "play nice" with non-Norton security software.

Nico Westerdale Ok some clarifications on the license.

"Lifetime" means that "Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for the lifetime of the product."

The license does NOT allow installation on one PC and a laptop - that was incorrect and we corrected it yesterday.

Our prices are based on the vendor pricing, we don't control the retail price of products in different countries.

sparkyspark OK, I bought two licences before you altered the terms and conditions in the small print and removed the laptop option. I have already installed one of the licences on my main desktop and also on one laptop, my other laptop is running the other licence code making three in total. Surely your in breach of terms as the initial information clearly stated one PC and one laptop and you should honour that deal.
The licences I bought were solely influenced on that initial fine print statement and the fact you made a mistake on the licencing terms is not the consumer/purchasers fault, I bought this software in good faith based on the terms you laid out and they should be honoured.
If I had to purchase a third licence how do you re-enter the new codes as there is no option in the main software box to re-enter a different code.

Actually, NO TWO AntiVirus Softwares can be run At the same time on ANY Computer, and if you have more that one installed, only ONE of them can be actively scanning (or Active - ie. "real-time protection") AT A TIME !!! The SAME goes for FireWall Software !!!
Since Avast is an AV Product, it CANNOT be running Simultaniously with Norton 360 (OR ANY other Anti-Virus Product)!!!
I run Norton 360 and ZoneAlarm Extreme on all of my Computers with NO Conflict other than the "Point #1 noted below.
NOTE that I have DeActivated the FireWall functions of Norton 360 and the AV Functions of ZoneAlarm Extreme!

In Reality, (in my Experience of over 20 years with Norton Anti-Virus and about 4 or 5 years with Norton 360) I have NEVER had a software conflict with other products OTHER than the following 2 examples:
1. Norton continues to "pop-up" a "Warning Message" periodically (once every few days) alerting me that a program (ZoneAlarm) is in coflict with Norton and requesting that I un-install it. Each time I just close the window! It is a minor inconvenience that I may be able to create an exception for when I have time to research a bit more. There have NOT been any adverse aftects to the running of any other software other than this and point 2 below.

Point #2 is an issuewhich may also be experienced in some of the other AV programs available, especially if they have a "Community" (or "Cloud") feature.

2. The problem has been with Installing new software as follows:
Sometimess, upon execution of an Installation file, a false Positives results because of the "Norton Community Watch" (Cloud) Feature when you are installing a file that is unknown (or new) to the Community. Also when Installers copy an Install file to your Temporary Temporary Files location to install from. Those Temporary files typically have an unknown (or even "STRANGE" name like " ~~MWBytes.tmp ", or something). When that happens, the "Temp File" will be deleted (or quarantined). These drawbacks can EASILY be overcome.
The Simple Solution: If you TRUST your Anti-Virus, and it Scanned the Downloaded Installation file (as MINE Does), then you know that the file is "safe". With THAT in mind, you can safely disable AV Protection long enough to complete the installation, then re-enable your AV. If your AV is like Norton; when you disable it, it will prompt you for a "Time Period" of "disablement" (just in case you forget to re-enable it)

I personally prefer to turn OFF FireWall Protection (in Norton 360) and use ZoneAlarm for my FireWall, ONLY because I have also been using ZoneAlarm for over 15 years and I'm more confident in it than Norton's firewall (which I have NO "Real-Time" experience with although I have been VERY happy with ALL of Symantec's Products that I have used over the past 20 Years). But that's MY choice.

Norton 360's Firewall may be sufficient for your needs, and if so would be an Excellent Solution for you, SUPPLEMENTED by MalWareBytes.

NOTE that MalWareBytes is a SUPPLEMENT to , and NOT a Rplacement for any AV software Firewall.

Today's Offer is a GREAT Deal! I Highly reccommend it!

I hope that helps!!!

Catherine McClarey @Chris Roy Jackson - I was responding to an earlier commenter who had specifically asked about running Avast & Malwarebytes scans simultaneously. As to my response to your earlier comment, you had seemed to indicate that you had attempted to install Avast on a computer which already had a Norton product installed; Avast itself warns that one should uninstall the Norton product before installing Avast. I certainly was in no way suggesting that anyone should run simultaneous scans from multiple security software programs - so calm down & lose the multiple exclamation marks, please!
Other than that, I understand that you appear to be a big fan of Norton products, while I'm a fan of Avast -- and that's OK. I feel no need to argue Norton vs. Avast; I'd rather just "live & let live."

Maybe you should take a look at Matousec's website : it is specialized in firewalls comparison.

This site is considered as a reference by many on the web.

You will note that Norton's and ZoneAlarm's firewall are not that effective : respective scores of 9 % and 34 %. You should consider the use of COMODO firewall or Privatefirewall, which are both free, for the best protection.

Steven Avery Hi,

I really appreciate the Malwarebytes scan and may purchase this simply for the schedule feature and to support the company and to help with stuff like automatic updates.

The web feature I would pass on, there are many ways to work that angle, and based on the above, MB would not be in my mix.

However, the real-time protection may be fun to try, on and off, to compare. I am always concerned with the performance hit versus the utility. If anybody wants to share their thoughts.. go right ahead. Maybe Wilders has a good thread.

Am I missing anything else?

The "problem" with MB has always been that the free version is so capable, that it is not always clear that you really, really need the pro. It is a nice problem.

Dieter Maler @Steven Avery: I have MBAM running since almost a year. I bought it especially bc of the real time protection. Can just recomment it.
Only thing that sucks from time to time is the IP address blocking when a bad site uses the same shared webhost as the one you want to visit.
I see no performance penalty.

You will find a comparison on this website :

Mar 20 2013 at 9:20am Copy Link
Steven Avery Hi,

On the free scan defense, with forum support and discussion, I would always suggest MB and SAS. They work a little differently and it always fine occasionally to run both scans (plus Emsi and maybe one or two others).

The license will always make that a little easier.

When you are in the $10-$20 range for a lifetime license for either program, I would say you get it, enjoy the benefits of things like scheduling and updates, and work out later what feels more comfortable for real-time protections (the place where you may have to choose one at a time).

Mar 20 2013 at 2:36pm Copy Link
EliG I thought I'd activate the trial on my existing Malwarebytes installation before deciding on whether to buy or not. It was important that MBAM would happily coexist with AVG 2013 (PRO). I can confirm that both AVG 2013 and MBAM seem to happily coexist with each other. I've also set-up exclusions within AVG and added the AVG directory into the MBAM ignore list.

Some feedback for Malwarebytes - Altholugh I seriously considered buying, I have decided not to buy at this stage and I'd imagine many potential buyers may have decided against buying because of the exact same reason. Even though $12.47 for a lifetime license is a great offer, I would probably disable real-time protection as it appears that mbamservice.exe consumes way too much memory. After starting my PC this morning, I noticed memory consumption to be about 108 MB. If you put your PC to hibernate and then re-start it later on, memory consumption drops to around 35MB, which is acceptable (then it suddenly jumped to 99,692 kb - probably due to monitoring the scheduled daily Google update - however even when that activity is over, memory consumption for mbamservice.exe remains at that very high figure). Overall, I noticed MBAM on average usually consumes somewhere between 60 to 75 MB (AVG2013 on average around 40 to 50 MB). Since MBAM is pitched as a complimentary anti-malware service, you'd need to use it along with another AV, which means MBAM really needs to be light in resources. When you take into account the memory consumption used by both MBAM and your existing AV, the performance hit might not be significant, but it is still noticible.

If I did buy a lifetime license, I would have remained hopeful that memory consumption would improve in a future update. I've also noticed on many forums that existing license holders have decided to happily disable real-time protection with MBAM, which defeats the purpose of purchasing a license. I will re-consider buying an MBAM license once memory consumption has improved (20-30 MB is more in line with what I think would be satisfactory). I will keep an eye out on MBAM future developments and may re-test in future to see if memory management has been improved.

Thank You

SoftCollector I own two lifetime licenses, but I rarely use them. By itself the product does not offer enough protection, and usage alongside other security products has been problematic on my computer. Also, please, note that per se all top internet security suites (Agnitum, Kasperski, Norton, etc.) are designed to eliminate 100% of the threats, and they do not need additional help to do that.

Adding new layers of protection by different vendors, each following its own agenda, can often make things worse, not better, and slow down or crash your Windows continually.
Jun 9 2013 at 1:03am Copy Link
Martin VanMeter I take a different approach than "SoftCollector". I own 4 licenses for Malwarebytes Pro and it runs extremely well with Microsoft Security Essentials in Win7 and the built in security in Win8. No apparent slowdowns or crashes with my installations. YMMV, but I like the extra layer of security by a vendor other than Microsoft or the other security vendors with huge, clunky protection suites that are very invasive. One differing opinion anyway.

Software Babe This software tool is the very best there is of this kind, other than the freeware CCleaner. However, Malwarebytes, I believe, DOES SO MUCH MORE than CCleaner. I purchased a lifetime license last year and it is simply SO AWESOME. It has caught so many anomalies and inconsistencies with my PC, I am just elated. I read in our newspaper yesterday ( that it is the best tool out there, even the freeware version, so it just confirmed what I already knew.

If you have any doubts about this software, try the freeware version or the trial version first, but I KNOW YOU WILL LOVE IT and will want to buy the full PRO version. I may purchase another copy for my son.

User1 This is a well behaved program and apparently effective.

I have purchased other "lifetime" licenses.
I would buy it -- if not for the 1-year limitation. It's just not worth it.

The subscription model may work for sales to businesses, but not for sales to people. Corel found that out, and 3rd party developers are eating the market share.

Peter Thompson Yeah I agree with User1. Luckily I purchased the deal last time when it was a lifetime license.

The one problem with security programs like this is after a year with no updates they become useless and MalwareBytes stood out for me because of the fact that it was a one off fee - the fact that it offered amazing protection at a very affordable one off fee made it stupid not to buy but the subscription model makes it harder to sell and probably encourages pirating
Aug 25 2014 at 4:52am Copy Link
michelle d Malwarebytes is one of my go-to fixes. It finds problems other software does not. However, the one-year license is not worth it.

User1 is absolutely correct. This is a DEFINITE BUY if it is a lifetime license, but as a yearly fee, it is not worth it.

VLM I fail to comprehend how some people imagine that a company might continue to provide updates unto eternity in exchange for nothing. Lifetime licenses may SOUND good, but it is highly unlikely that any company can ever honor one, with the passage of time.

Scott Garrett - If I may ... You wrote: "I already own this and must say that this is a program everyone should have and run with their antivirus." Does not Malwarebytes cover the ground walked by antivirus programs? I had thought so.
Aug 25 2014 at 5:47am Copy Link
User1 "Does not Malwarebytes cover the ground walked by antivirus programs? I had thought so."
Not so. From Wilders Security:
"MBAM is a complementary Anti-Malware solution to a fully installed Anti-Virus application.MBAM works differently from your anti-virus, specializes in different threats from your anti-virus, and is designed to work alongside a robust, real-time anti-virus to provide complementary, layered protection."

Issuance of signature updates is a sunk cost, not incremental with the number of copies the company sells. Also, the actual number of the older 'lifetime licenses' declines through attrition (loss) as people lose activation codes, change devices, or simply forget. The company changed to the sub. model to increase profits, nothing more.
Aug 25 2014 at 6:22am Copy Link
Peter Thompson VLM - Malwarebytes is designed to work alongside your antivirus and is not designed to replace it. It may find viruses, but it's main purpose is malware. It tends to focus on the stuff that other antiviruses leave so works alongside your other security programs.

Obviously its understandable to why they would go to a subscription base but a lot of people who bought malwarebytes probably did because of the fact it stood out and choose not to be subscription base and they could lose some fans. On the positive side they are honouring the lifetime licenses purchased

User1 I guess the bottom line is this isn't a very good deal.
People are jumping on sales on the "lifetime" packs that still go on sale from time to time for $18-20.

Fact is most people are fine with Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender which presently are free for Windows users. Only if you spend too much time at bad web sites might a user need Malwarebytes, and in taht case opt for the "lifetime" version.
Aug 25 2014 at 6:43am Copy Link
Doug Atkinson User1 stated, "Only if you spend too much time at bad web sites might a user need Malwarebytes, and in that case opt for the "lifetime" version"

However, you don't know if you're about to spend time at a "bad web site". That's what Malwarebytes is all about! Hackers often target legitimate websites to compromise; it's not just sketchy websites that are dangerous anymore. In my normal usage of it, I've had it block several "legitimate" websites from loading.

It is a good product. It works well alongside Microsoft's anti-virus, and VIPRE; I can't vouch for any others.

Overtkill I've used it on my client systems with Kaspersky's various suites, and have had zero issues with MBAM. Real good secondary defense.

But like others are saying, they have offered lifetime purchases in the past. Another reason they rock in my book. Today's offering for a year is a bit of a surprise to say the least, and a bit disappointing. I hope they aren't changing their business model to subscription based.

I'd probably either wait, or go to their site and get the lifetime license.

Yousri Yacoubian @Overtkill
I agree, MBAM & Kaspersky combination is the best for protecting any computer, I also use them for my customers.
Unfortunately, Malwarebytes has stopped the lifetime license and now like other antiviruses & malware software, they offer the yearly renewal subscription.

I just bought 3 licenses for 9 PCs.
Aug 25 2014 at 7:42am Copy Link
Stan @all about license policy:

How long your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware license will remain valid depends on what type of license you have.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO licenses (purchased prior to 3/24/2014) are valid for an entire lifetime and require no renewal
Malwareytes Anti-Malware Premimum licenses (purchased after 3/24/2014) are valid for one year after the purchase date

Aug 25 2014 at 9:49am Copy Link
Nick H I must say that I'm not very impressed since Malwarebytes Anti-Malware was updated to v2. Since the update, I've noticed numerous bugs. Sometimes when it will go to scan automatically, it will come up with an error saying something like "SKDefaults Could not load". The update will start but not finish for whatever reason but the main window will still show that it's still being updated. I would've liked it if I was able to stay with v1 but they pretty much forced everyone to upgrade to v2 with the fact the updated virus databases were incompatible with v1.

User1 There appears to be another licensing problem.
I had a paid "lifetime" license, but the automatic update brought it to the new version, but now I appear to be SOL -- no longer lifetime licensed.
there should have been a warning telling me that i would lose my previous license.

Rick Hello,

User1, this is in verbatim from Malwarebytes support website.

“If you previously purchased Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO, Malwarebytes will continue to honor your lifetime license for 2.0 and beyond. Your update to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium is free. You will be able to transfer your lifetime license to a newer computer whenever you decide to upgrade or if you reformat your computer, but lifetime licenses are not transferable between users.”

I would contact support if your license type actually changed from life-time to annual.

Joe Smart The free version of this program which scans for malware always gets great reviews. However, the paid version which includes real-time protection against malware is another matter. The real-time protection supposedly performs very poorly in tests against comparable products. Anyone thinking of purchasing this should look for reviews of the paid version first. When I purchased this the company was referring to a rave review in PC Magazine. Thing is, the review they were referring to was for the free version. The paid version got a terrible review in PC Magazine. Buyer beware.

Joe Smart User reviews are completely useless with security software--most people can't determine whether an anti-virus program or anti-malware program actually works or not. There was an anti-virus program for Android that got numerous rave user reviews even though the program didn't actually do anything. If you're smart you check for professional reviews that include testing of the product.
