  • Latest Changes

    - Context Menu scanning option is now enabled by default. Note if you had this option disabled previously and want to retain that setting, you must disable again manually this one time only. Future updates will retain the setting properly

    - Improved renewal experience for those who purchased in retail store so that the original license key is retained post-renewal instead of requiring that a new key be entered and activated

    - Improved End of Trial experience so it is clear that trial has expired and real-time protection is no longer available

    - Added additional license checks to ensure subscription details are updated as quickly as possible after a renewal is processed

    - Updated company and product logos with new logo

    - For Premium subscription licenses, removed Renew button from My Account screen to avoid confusion over license term

    one of the best detection rates in scanning a drive or single folder,file, use this and BTdefender free or Avira homefree and you have a great defense, If your really want to be safe Zorin Linux run a dual boot with windows surf the web under Linux or use A live DVD ...

    IMO just about the best anti malware product there is - Not perfect but nothing is, it is still none bloated & coexists with just about all AV solutions - I've used Mbam for many, many years & likely always will, other similar products have been tried but still happy with Mbam.

    I recommend each & every person whose PC I fix to use the premium version of Mbam because it's still the best.

    (to say Mbam is 'garbage' is frankly just silly)

    10 stars :-)

    I don't see any ads for competing software. Nor am I a troll. Some people are just honest and smart enough to know crap when they see it. I'm sorry you're not.

    Ignore the two trolls below advertising for other software. This is by far the best freeware Malware Cleaner out there and is rated 4.5 to 5 stars by every reputable reviewer I've read. Like others, I'm not over thrilled with the new look, but for what it does, I can live with it. Scans are quick and accurate, the data base updates regularly. Definitely 5 stars

    this is one of the best anti spyware tools there is. i combine this with a couple of other tools but this one is definitely one of the most diligent monitors of incoming system activity!

    While recently trying to download the latest printer driver for my mother's printer which i wanted to print a few items with from my laptop, i inadvertantly downloaded the hardware helper program, and after a scan, not only did it ask for $29.95 to fix several driver's that it said needed updates, but it has changed my access level internally. I am still listed as Administrator, but am unavailable to un-install this as i am prompted that I do not have administrator access. Also, There are several minor things that Kasdpersky found, that i also am not being allowed to correct for the same reason that I dio not have administrator access ... PLEASE HELP ! I run SpyBot Search and Destroy, which only finds cookies, and Malwareware Bytes ... PLEASE HELP I NEED THIS REMOVED, and Administrator access restored.
