- By Linda Rosencrance 02 June 2017 Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a powerful, free tool that gets rid of adware and other unwanted programs. Here's how to install and use it.
- The free version of Malwarebytes for Windows is great for getting rid of existing infections, but some infections, like ransomware, only need a moment to wreak havoc on your PC. To stop infections before they happen, stay one step ahead with the Real-Time Protection of Malwarebytes Premium.
- Malwarebytes doesn’t really offer a free version of its antivirus. The free download gives you a free 14-day trial of the Premium package which is a great way to see if you like using the software. It’s basically a marketing ploy to get you to recognize how good the paid version is vs. The free version.
