Why you Need Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Tool - Tried and Tested

Malwarebytes is an anti-malware tool which will sit side by side with your anti-virus software to provide defence and protection from the millions of threats out there and works extremely well.

Quote 'When a Trojan or other malware gets a foothold in your PC's innards, clearing it out can be tough. The nastiest ones fight back, interfering with your attempts to install antivirus software.'  Er......this sounds something like trying to shut the door after the horse has bolted.  The answer is to not wait for the attack but to make sure you're set up well in advance.What is Malware?

Malware, or malicious software, has many forms.  Most will get stopped by your anti-virus software, but some infections can slip past and disable your system or slow it right down. There are those who say you shouldn't run two anti-virus/malware software tools at the same time, but I find that Malwarebytes works very well with the Norton anti-virus software I use and have so far had no problems.

Malwarebytes comes in a free version which works perfectly well, however the investment of roughly £21 for the lifetime license for the Pro version which scans automatically and protects your system without your having to think about it seems well worth the cost.

There are those who think that if they browse carefully they will avoid attack by malware, those who forget about it until their computer/laptop slows down to a crawl and those who just don't bother.  And installing Anti Virus software, although an essential start, particularly if like most of us you spend hours browsing, just isn't enough.

Your anti-virus software, as with anti-malware software, is only as good as its updates, as new viruses are being invented all of the time, so make absolutely sure that yours is up to date always.
Here's a review by PC World on what's available anti-virus wise.
