One of the better anti-virus programs on the internet has to be Malware Bytes, best of all it is free. Millions of users swear by the software and its ability to keep their computers free of malicious software, namely adware, malware, spyware, Trojans and countless other viruses.
[Disclaimer] I do not work for Malware Bytes in any way, and this article review is written with firsthand experience of using the software. [End Disclaimer]
Malware Bytes is renouned for keeping at bay all of the above problems, and is formatted in a user friendly guise, that is so simple even the least computer savvy of us can make sense of how to install and configure the anti-virus program easily.
It is probably one of the quicker of the anti-virus packages at scanning and removing any problematic bugs on a users computer, and certainly has one of the most vast databases of bugs and viruses on the internet.
Malware Bytes users have the opportunity to share information on malicious websites and viruses, and for the many who do this everyday there has to be a big thank you, in particular from me for helping to keep the internet free of computer pests.
Obviously not every anti-virus is perfect, and one or two Trojans do sneak through occasionally, but these are usually picked up on in no time, and may be found on the next update and scan.
Malware Bytes can help restore any problems you might be having with boot up at start, these problems are usually caused by fake anti-virus software such as the AVG Clone and Click Potato related fake anti-virus programs.
Anybody who does have an issue at startup and boot due to fake anti-virus should take back control of their computer by installing Malware Bytes.
Firstly do not panic buy any fake anti-virus, just allow your computer to start up unprotected when given the options. You may not be able to connect to the internet at first, so you may have to download Malware Bytes to a disk from another computer then install it onto your own.
Once installed run Malware Bytes, it will almost certainly pick up on any issues and remove the offenders.
It is important that once you have done this to clear the virus vault in Malware bytes, clear your Temporary Internet Files, Browser History and Cache, then make a restore point that you can always go back to in case you have any future problems that Malware Bytes does not pick up on at first.
My personal experience with Maware Bytes has help me out of a few situations where I have accidentally hit a malicious website, as the anti-virus notifies you before you drop onto the said malicious site. More than helpful!
Again it is not always perfect and some websites may be included as malicious when they are not, mainly due to business to business sabotage, so it is advised that you use common sense if you are a regular to a particular website that may have been reported as malicious to Malware Bytes.
Again it is equally important for Webmasters to take up issue with Malware Bytes if they find their Website on the Malicioius List, as the anti-virus company can only take up a stance if they are kept informed.
