Has anyone out there been using this new offering from Malwarebytes?  I'm running the trial version now, and it is being very quiet, which either means it isn't doing anything, or no one is trying to exploit me.

 

Be interested to hear from anyone else out there who has tried it, and found it to work.

 

Given that it costs nearly $40/year, I don't want to pay for the premium edition if it doesn't do anything.  Thanks.

I'm running Windows 10 and just finished the trial. It came up with a notification every time I opened a program that was on its list that it was protecting it. During the 2 week trial it found no exploits.

 

 

 

I will say that I have paid for the full version and we shall see what happens.

What's the difference of this and the free Microsoft EMET?

I run it. It does pop up when something is not right with a website, sometimes when you follow a link from something posted on facebook.

So you're safe to use XP as long as you're using malwarebytes?

Doesn't slow computer
Doesn't require frequent updates because it doesn't use a signature database like traditional antivirus solutions. And it only takes up 3 MBs on your hard drive—the size of one high-resolution photo.

Protects vulnerable programs
Secures programs associated with older operating systems like Microsoft Windows XP that are no longer patched and protected by their makers. So you can keep the operating system you like without being exposed.

can be.
use FF instead of IE. Dont do stupid things. Train your staff. Have internet usage policies . Dont let you neighbour play
on your PC . Keep your kids off PC's you use for work.

 


Updated Win7 etc systems arnt any guarantee of being 'safe'.
in fact, even when Xp was still supported by MS, many of the XP PC's I saw werent installing WindowsUpdates anyway.
In the real world, its the user who is unsafe. Not the Win OS version. Thats why its often the same people getting repeat
malware infections . On up to date OS's .

 

Now Ive just got to open that new email from that nice Nigerian Prince smile
And someone Ive never heard of sent me an invoice. I better check that one as well  .

 

Actually its not funny, I know know someone who insisted on opening every spam email, to try & see why he was being spammed.
Took months to talk him out of doing that .
