Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium is the best malware removal software you can have for your computer. But what you may not know is how good it is at blocking malware attacks in real-time. It has an advanced scanner, which scans your running programs and critical areas of the Windows, to prevent any suspicious programs from embedding itself or gaining access to the operating system’s files. The application can halt even the deadliest ransomware in its tracks, before it can execute the malicious script to encrypt your data.
And because this scanner uses behavioral analysis of active programs, it does not depend on an antivirus for the real-time scanner. However, it does use the database during scans. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium can also block network connections which applications and web browsers make to malicious servers, to prevent any malware attack originating on the internet.
The task scheduler in the program can be set to run scans on a regular basis, to keep your PC free of malware automatically. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware plays well with other antivirus programs, so you can use it as a secondary real-time shield. But you can also use the application as a full scale replacement of an antivirus if you want to.
