What do you do when your computer is running slow? Run a scan using your antivirus? What if it doesn’t find anything. We think it is wise to get as second opinion, with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium.
In fact, you don’t need another antivirus, when you have Malwarebytes protecting your system in real-time, all the time. The constant shield blocks malware, viruses, trojans, etc., and it is aided by the built-in anti-ransomware scanner. This shield observes the file activity of running processes for odd behavior, like encrypting your documents secretly, or altering the Windows system settings, it will immediately block the action, and quarantine the ransomware or other malware.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium has an Anti-Exploit shield, which secures other programs installed on your computer. These programs may have security issues which may be targeted by malware, and that is precisely what Malwarebytes blocks.
Rootkits often damage the files which they infect, but Malwarebytes doesn’t just delete them. It disinfects them, so you don’t lose your data.
Websites can get hacked, or injected with malicious ads, and the user who visits them may not be aware of these threats, but the web browser may secretly hijack the settings, or steal your data, but Malwarebytes stops all this, by blocking infected websites, in real-time.
You don’t have to remember to run scans in the program, in fact you don’t even need to open the interface at all. Why? Because the premium version runs scans using the built in task scheduler, at a time and date which is set, automatically. You can change the schedule, or the scan type, and the post-scan actions too.
Malwarebytes has schedules set for updates too, so your program version, and the database, is also kept up to date automatically.
You can manually run scans anytime you want to and choose between the Hyper Scan, Full Scan, and Custom Scan options. The right-click context menu item in the Windows File Explorer, makes it easy to scan specific files and folders quickly, without the need to open the program’s interface.
Another positive thing about Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium is that it never slows down the computer, even when a scan is running, so multi-tasking isn’t an issue.
