Recently I became a big fan of Malwarebytes anti-malware software and let me explain to you why!
If you want to purchase Malwarebytes for home use with a 25% discount for 3 PCs (1 year subscription), you can download it from this link. If you want to install an additional real-time protection (anti-exploit) software with a 50% discount for 3 PCs (1 year subscription) click here.
As everyone else I own a personal computer that my family and I use at home. The majority of PC users install antivirus software so they feel safer when browsing the internet. You can find this type of software for free or pay a yearly subscription of $20-$80 to be protected against viruses and other threats.
Here’s the thing though. Free antivirus doesn’t protect you 100% from any threat that’s online. The features provided in the free edition are limited. That’s why most companies want you to buy their subscription so you can unlock all features from their software.
A few weeks ago, I was facing a malfunction while I was using Google chrome. In the search results, when I was hovering with the mouse on a specific result I wanted to click, a new tab window was opening, completely different from the original link I wanted to open initially. With a second try, (after closing the tab) the proper link would open eventually.
I thought it was something wrong going on with the internet at that moment and decided to restart the computer. The same problem occurred. I was frustrated because I couldn’t work and be productive.
In Mozilla or Internet Explorer, Google search was working fine so I had to figure out what was the problem in Google Chrome. I went to Control Panel>Programs and uninstalled Chrome from my computer. I downloaded and installed it again. I also deleted all files and folders from the Program Files. Nothing! The problem was still there.
I downloaded two different internet security software with full features installed (Free trial version for a month, so I didn’t have to pay). Nothing happened. Both software couldn’t find any virus or malware on my computer.
I was really getting upset about this. It took me like a whole day to figure out what was the problem. After a thorough online search I came to a conclusion that the malware was so “intelligent” that whatever I was doing, it was hiding from me like we were playing hide and seek! I was also feeling insecure because this type of malware can steal your personal information, banking accounts, passwords or anything else that is valuable.
After quite a time and research I found malwarebytes.com. It was recommended from CNET to be the best anti-malware software. I downloaded it and activated the premium trial which enables all features for a period of time. If you’re happy with the results then you can choose to buy the program or not.
It took a while to scan everything and found 18 malicious software including the one that was installed in Chrome and removed them all from my computer. What a relief. After so many hours I finally had the solution that I needed from the beginning!
Malwarebytes saved me and my personal information from hackers and other intruders that potentially can harm and infect our computers.
When the premium trial expired I purchased the software from their official website. It’s the best anti-malware software out there. You will definitely feel more secure than ever before!
