Malwarebytes is not typical security software that allows you to detect and remove various types of malware. Thanks to it, we will eliminate viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, dialers, and spyware from the computer. It can be an addition to the already used third-party software.
It is a stand-alone scanner that, in its enhanced version, monitors the files you use and the websites you browse. This software is useful primarily when other antiviruses fail or when we are unsure if our computer is clean. With Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, we can detect infected files, spyware, and potentially unwanted applications (PUP). You can use the program even if you have another complete protection suite. It is complementary protection that can be run, e.g., only on the user’s command.
The program is elementary to use. It offers several types of scanning, including quick scanning and scanning of user-designated areas. MBAM checks not only files but also browser data and the system registry, which allows it to remove even hidden threats. The program updates virus signatures daily; its settings will enable you to exclude specific areas of the disk and websites from scanning. There is also an extensive task scheduler where you can set up automated tasks like updates and background scans. If necessary, it is possible to block access to the program with a password.
