This isn't a help thread or a PC gamer thread so I put it under General. Please relocate it it's in the wrong spot. Thanks.

So, after years of using the free Malwarebytes Anti-malware software and having it save my ass multiple times, I've grown to really like it. So much in fact that I want to buy it out just a thank you for doing better than Norton or any other anti-virus software I've used. It's $25 for the CD which goes on 3 computers and offers a bunch of extras in PC protection for a full year.

I just wanted to know some opinions of people who have paid for the Pro version or what they think of the free version.

If you don't have Malwarebytes for free, give it a try! It will clean your PC of AIDS! (That should be their marketing ad lol) You can find it along with a bunch of other nice downloads on bleepingcomputer.com.

Lol had to make a poster:

I've bought the pro version and I've had it for 2 and a half years paired with avg at first but now avast.
The free version is good quality, so i recommend it to anyone who doesn't have it.

I prefer manual cleaning and CCleaner but I have the free version of Malwarebytes to double check things for me. I have yet to detect malware. Between all of that and Avast I haven't had any issues to date. Awareness and common sense is your best protection against malware.

With that being said Malwarebytes has a pretty good reputation so I don't think the price is too high if you want to take a chance on it.

Pretty much the same effect is achieved by clearing your cookies, so I don't really see the point.

Clearing your cookies does not clear a virus, unzip locked folders, back up your PC, detect rootkits and other nasty things. That's a dangerous misconception. Please save your PC and yourself from ID theft in the future and get some form of anti-virus. T.T God save your PC's soul!

Yeah but let's be honest, drink a few beers or maybe you're up late tired, you don't think about common sense crap xD And I run CCleaner and love it. Have it set to automatically clear my cache per broswer close. I like to lock my PC up, then put it in a fireproof safe, then proceed to bury it lol.

Edit: Plus there are just some viruses you can't protect against or can't be there to protect like when little kids use your PC and open 50 tabs and click the "Congratulations you WON!!!!" spam ads

I've used nothing but noscript in my browser and the lowest profile AV I could find (MSE) for over half a decade on multiple PC's without ever encountering a single issue. Lots of armchair IT professionals I see on forums like to tout Malwarebytes and Avast as some sort of second coming of Christ, but I'm doing pretty well without them.

Ah alcohol, the X factor... lucky (and unlucky) for me my ulcer means I can't drink without excruciating pain. Children... I have no answer to that except for locking them out completely. (I even have a BIOS level password just in case) Even with an adblocker they don't even know how to PC...

I had one virus back in 2010 that I have no idea how it got there (this was before I had multiple layers of protection) that was just unspeakably horrible... It accessed my browser and searched things....horrible things.... I won't even speak of what was there... I just nuked (wiped) that HDD and then put three drill holes into it.

I don't like the look and feel changes since the redesign, but still it is the best junk remover out there.

You are either a god or a man who can walk into a pile of shit and come out smelling like roses. I commend you sir. God bless your lucky ass soul.

Wow, that sounds pretty terrible...Glad nothing like that's come My way. It seems the only times that I've ever lost things on My computer is because of My own error...I like to think that I've gotten a little bit smarter as far as computers and such go, but...The three lost harddrives with all My missing stuff hang over My shoulders like ghosts from a woebegone past, lol.

I might give it a shot, it sounds useful. Does it automatically remove false-positives? Just figured that would be useful to know.
