Windows 7: Malwarebytes Question

Malwarebytes Question

A friend of mine ran the free version of malwarebytes and it showed they have 300+ infections. Anyway they told me that malwarebytes said it would only clean 100 of them or to buy the full version to clean them all. Does anyone know if would right? as I am interested
Thank you

Hi,

Thats incorrect - the detection and cleaning engine in the free version is the same as in the paid version.

The only difference between the two, is that the paid version:

- Has automatic definition updates
- IP blocker
- Scheduling ability

Apart from that, there is absolutely no difference between the two.

Regards,
Golden

That is what I thought and tried to tell them.They may have downloaded the paid version on a trial basis.
Thanks for the reply

Yeah, when I saw the final number 745, I asked him what he does on his computer...he said "mostly Christian chat rooms" ....

The paid version also has real time protection not just IP blocking.
