Malwarebytes has helped me resolve a ton of spyware infections (the free version). Sometimes you have to rename the setup file, because some active spyware prevents the install from running.

The purchase link from bitsdujour.com doesn't seem to be working, 'tis a shame.

Wait a minute though - when I visit the site and click the buy now link, it takes me to something very weird - like the checkout process isn't set up. How do I actually get the deal?

vote-for1vote-against

So is this a lifetime subscription or just a year license? It says on the woot page, but not in the check out.

Really good program at about half price.

The website states that "Activating the full version unlocks realtime protection, scheduled scanning, and scheduled updating. For consumers and personal use, it is a one time fee of $24.95" We just happen to be lucky and able to get the discount on this awesome software.

@moses04: Ya, too bad dat, I was going to get two for all my comuters.

In for a license. This software has gotten me out of a jam a few times. Thanks for the post.

"Pro Anti-Malware Software"

Which is it? Pro-malware or anti-malware?

I just used the free version of this last week to get rid of a Malware Trojan virus. I had to reboot and run from the safe mode as the virus tried to block the program from running. It was a very quick fix! I love it! BTW ~ the McAfee I was running did not detect or remove this virus.

Thanks for the tip. I have been running the free version for several months and like it very much. For $14.99 I can add real-time protection and reward the company for such a fine product. Plus I can ditch my buggy Ad-Aware.
Just downloaded and installed the registered version with no hitches.

I have been using this for over a year, and it has saved me a lot of headache. I just bought a license.

I'll be buying a new comp in a few months. If I purchase this today, will I be able to use the key code to install it on my new system?
Thanks all!

I use this product both for my personal computer and for work. It is an excellent Spyware removal tool so I am thrilled to be able to support the developers and yet get a slight discount for myself to have the full version on my personal computer.

The link worked fine for me. This program has found things that neither McAfee or SpyBot detected and doesn't interfere with the performance of the computer.

I work in IT security for a living and I would not recommend this product. My wife had some malware pop up on her Vista PC that gave me a fake Windows message directing me to download Malwarebytes and install it to fix the problem. It looked like malware created by the anti-malware company.

If you are interested in a great anti-malware/antivirus program, download Microsoft Security Essentials for free at http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/?mkt=en-us

Also make sure to update your computer because Microsoft has published a free anti-malware update that will run as a part of Windows.

If you don't want another Microsoft product, I would recommend Symantec Antivirus (free if you are a DoD or US govt employee). Another option is to scan your downloaded files on www.virustotal.com before running them. It will scan the files across 25 engines and give you an immediate summary of the findings.

Don't buy into a gimmick product like Malwarebytes.

@tjbarnett: I work for a major university and the IT people always recommend using the free version of Malwarebytes even though our computers all have Symantec on them. Interestingly, the only virus I have ever had was at work, but it was intercepted by Symantec. However, the virus was emailed from the Dean's office, to my faculty member, who then emailed it to me, but went undetected until it arrived in my Inbox. It was never activated on my computer, but the other two computers had to be cleaned. Go figure...

The is great software. I too have used the free version forever and just purchased the registered version for this price. Great bargin! Thanks.

@chewbacchi: I just completed the purchase-- the download link is valid until 2/28/10, or you can pay an additional amount (9.95 or 5.95) to have a CD delivered or extended online download available.

I'm so excited about this-- buh-bye McAfee!

My computer was attacked by virus and I used their free service and
immediately had my computer back!

Another vote goes to Malwarebytes here..it had gotten me out of one notorious, stubborn virus that my main AVG Antivirus cannot remove. I am using the free edition.

With that said, I have not gotten any other malicious software using this free version in conjunction with IObit Security 360, Advance Systemcare 3, Ad-Aware, HiJack This and the Anti-Spy feature of Ashampoo WinOptimizer 6 in my Dell desktop. I know you'd say it's overkill or even unnecessary for all of these anti-malware programs in use...but it had effectively ran my pc relatively quicker and trouble-free since using this array of protection.

vote-for1vote-against

@chewbacchi: I too am interested to know this.

edit Well, his question was about the ability to use this license on another computer if you get a new one.

vote-for2vote-against

@tjbarnett I assume u stopped using Microsoft products too bc malware and viruses have also mimmicked their product? And who knew pop-ups were misleading. +1 to anti-malware for a deal and a great product.

vote-for1vote-against

On the front page of the deal it shows 4 hours left to get the deal. When I click to get it, the price and time remaining are ?'s and it says the deal is not available today. I've tried it using Firefox, Chrome and IE.

Did it die? or just having a coughing fit?

Friends do not let friends load anything from Symantec. Just say NO to NORTON.

Lately the best game in town is Malwarebytes. This is the program I use to get the malware off of computers that were supposed to be protected by Symatec or MacAfee. Of course this the program to use today, tomorrow that may change.

vote-for1vote-against

It just worked fine for me using the second listed link.

vote-for1vote-against

This software is well worth the price, but remember it should be used in conjunction with an antivirus solution and firewall.

I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials for a free anti-virus program, but I pay to use ESET Security Suite for the added functionality and improved performance.

vote-for1vote-against

Excellent, I just used the free version today to remove some malware a non-internet savvy friend had on their PC. I had to re-boot into safe mode to run it, but once there it cleaned up the problems right away. Getting the pro version at this price is sweet!

is an idiot and the company he works for should fire him. This is one of the best ways to get rid of the Rouge/Fake Antivirus programs such as Antivirus 2009/2010 Personal Antivirus. The malware does ask you to install a program, but it is not Malwarebytes.

Malwarebytes is top notch; it finds and removes stuff nothing else finds. I bought 4 licenses today to use as my trend micro subscriptions end.

The link https://store.malwarebytes.org/342/uurl-927sqm10n2 still works. Great product. I've been using the free version for over a year so I bought this version. Thanks.

@reverendc: Thanks for the flame.
I offered two other free antivirus solutions and get slammed for disliking this product.

vote-for2vote-against

@tjbarnett: I believe you are mistaken. A lot of these malware programs mimic well established anti-malware programs, so it might have looked very similar to malwarebytes and even had a similar name, but malwarebytes is a legitimate program. If you work an IT job, you should definitely give it another look.

Now that that is out of the way, I'm actually going to recommend another program LOL. I work in IT and my most reliable program is SuperAntiSpyware (home version free, corporate version pay). The real time scanning version is free and this thing picks up everything on your PC.
