They sometimes release more definition updates per day than MS do for their MSE. It's a nice little on demand scanner, quick on the full scan too.

I've been using Malwarebytes for quite some time and I think it is good for what it is. But, as some of the others have said, it is not a firewall which is something additional that you should have if you don't already have it. I at one time used ZoneAlarm for my firewall but it was giving me problems. I then tried another but don't remember which one it was, but I removed that one and now rely on the firewall in Windows 7.

Zone alarm sometimes runs rough in Windows 7, there is a hotfix that seems to have fixed that issue. I was getting BSOD due to zone alarm. Applied the hotfix and thus far all is well.

Stop error message when you run an application that transfers data by using the UDP protocol in Windows Server 2008 R2 or in Windows 7: "STOP 0x0000007F"

Well--Since there is a fix for ZA, I think I'll give it another try. Actually, I always like it until it was giving me the problems.

And the fix may or may not work for you. Its been about 3 days now since i applied it and so far zone alarm isnt saying its stuck on Initializing and no BSOD. But i would definately give it a shot

Tony is right about the hotfix; it does not always work.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or MBAM is not a scam. It's a popular anti-malware program, best known for its shuriken heuristics and very good detection rates (it catches malware in which other security software does not). MBAM has a paid and free version, the paid version uses automatic updating (of the virus signature database), has a website/IP blocker and protects your PC in real-time by default which obviously increases your PC's security. The free version is the same as the paid but it does not run in the background and does not protect your computer in real-time. If you have the free version, you'll have to run it as if it's a normal program, update it manually and scan.

Malwarebytes is without a doubt the most popularly recommended computer security software that I see on the internet.

MBAM also runs very smoothly on Win 7. I have never seen a BSOD caused by MBAM. I cannot say that about most other third party anti-malware programs.

Set up Malwarebytes PRO
How often should I setup MBAM PRO to scan and how often should I change my antivirus to scan? I scan using my antivirus every day since I am delusional that I might get a infection. Side note: I finally will get to start using the software that I reccomend but don't use. Yippee!!
