1st deal i've upped. I'm the sys admin at my company. Since installing the registered version a year ago, and installing the agent, we have not had a single instance of a user getting a virus or malware infection, such as The windows Antivirus malware. Before, I'd have to do 2 or 3 removals ever quarter because a dum- er, operator would get infected. This is required software, and a great deal.

Use it all the time. Helps clean up limewire, and bearshare and other infectious problems that promiscuous users have.

I use AVG free edition, but for 14 bucks, and great reviews there is no reason not to pick it up.

I have used the free version on many computers that have had malware problems. It has successfully removed problems every time I've used it. I'm buying two! Best software I have found on the market for malware.

How is this better than the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool that Microsoft releases for free every couple weeks?

@lparsons42 - The Malicious Software Removal Tool only fixes a limited set of malware. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware gets more stuff than any other tool I've used.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is one of my go to programs whenever I am cleaning someones computer that has been infected with virus/malware. It's easy to use and most of the time catches everything that's causing problems on a computer. Typically I'll run it from the admin account the first time and then the user account a second time just to make sure it finds everything, and it works well in XP, Vista and Windows 7.

if you run anti-virus already you can get the free Malwarebytes which removes malware but you have to manually trigger it. Quick scans generally take a few minutes, deeper scans can take several hours depending on how much data you have.

While I will swear by MBAM and it's awesomeness, it is not an AV replacment. Even the pro version is meant as a side kick to AVs. You'll still need to have something protecting the system beyond just MBAM. This is an anti-spyware program, not an anti-virus. Big difference. So no one should have JUST this, you should have ALSO this. This is a decent deal and it's from a dealer everyone knows, good way to go.

What Jditto said. This is not an AV replacement. You still need AV.

This product along side of Microsoft Security Essentials (Free AV) is all I put on peoples systems anymore. I used to be an AVG supporter but it gotten too bloaty.

@2good2btrue: Same here. Loved AVG for years, but it's gotten as bloaty as Symantec did. Management at my office wants us to drop MBAM in favor of some Symantec Support Tool so they don't have to pay for both, since the tool comes with the Symantec licenses, but it's pretty crappy, like a happy meal toy.

And I never, ever, thought I'd say this, but Microsoft Security Essentials is actually pretty awesome.

It's amazing that people still pay for Anti-viruses. (Individuals)

@2good2btrue: Same here. Since I switched from AVG to MSE, along with the free version of MBAM my system runs faster and nothing has slipped through yet (knock on wood). I also use Superantispyware, but that mostly just removes bad cookies.

I use Avast (free edition) on all my computers. Our place of business uses it as well and it does a pretty good job. Just recently ran Malwarebytes to remove a nasty virus (running Norton). Just saying...

in for one too! love this deal, this software has been on my "short list" to buy soon for a while lately and now I'm saving $$ Yaa! Thanks, Woot!

I don't understand why people think this program works.

The help desk where I work swears by it but they have never successfully fixed a malware infection with it. The most effective thing they have found is to give it to me where I find and remove it within minutes using the cli and the registry editor.

vote-for1vote-against

I've used the free version on a number of computers over the last couple of years and have always been happy with it... it's fixed a number of units that had some other AV program that didn't catch an infection. Everytime I install it on a computer I've actually gotten to the point of feeling guilty because I always go free. I'm in for five! I'm free of guilt!

You can get this for free on PCMICHIANA.COM under free downloads you just have to register the free product

@joshtheitguy: That's odd. Though I have never successfully fixed a computer using just the CLI and registry editor (and I am a system engineer, so I'm not an idiot). Using it is effective for certain things, but most of the malicious registry entries and files will regenerate after a reboot unless you find everything. Not saying your way isn't effective, it's just a lot more user friendly for people to use a program that scans. It's also a lot less hassle to have it scan and then you clean up the remnants. Nothing is 100%.
