Having no Mac antivirus protection may not such a disaster as leaving your Windows or Android devices unprotected, but it's a bad idea to go without.Malwarebytes has a top-notch reputation for wiping out malware even when other utilities fail.On opening the program after the install, I got a message telling me the program had encountered a problem and would close.I've gotten the same message on every one of my XP PC's after downloading and installing the new version.I clicked that message and was taken to the download page at Malware Bytes.I downloaded the new version of the program and installed it.So no issue on my end when it comes to installing and running the latest version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on my XP based system. NET update Regards Fred PS: Just after this response Malwarebytes PRO successfully blocked this intrusion attempt... I ran a scan with the 1.45 version and found nothing, then when I downloaded and installed the latest version it found the following: PUM. Start Menu Hi Doc, Now running XP Pro SP-3 ..Malwarebytes PRO 188.8.131.520..."No-problemo"... Way Cool Yup, that's the version that just errors out on my XP machines, , , all of them.
The independent antivirus testing labs put Windows antivirus to the test in a wide variety of ways, many of them closely resembling real-world malware-attack situations.
However, coming up with hard data that shows it working isn't easy.
On the Windows platform, Malwarebytes is the go-to solution when a pernicious malware infestation resists removal.
That can be handy if another antivirus utility detected a threat but failed to fully eliminate it.
Paying for the premium edition gets you real-time protection, automatic updates, and blocking of adware and potentially unwanted applications, or PUAs.
