Windows 7: IE Hacker Problem

MSE which is free has real time protection. I use free MBAM for on demand scan, now and then, along with AdwCleaner which is also free.

mabm free is the ultimate problem in any browser,
It will only find stuff after the fact of infection,
Adwcleaner should be uninstalled after use,
I don't believe it's meant to be used repeatedly but I'll yield to security experts on that one ?
Cheers.

Yeah, AdwCleaner needs to be downloaded for each run to ensure the current definitions are used. It will come up and tell you the program is too old. The definitions are part of the program. There's no install. Just delete the old one and download the new one. It's a portable file with the .exe extension.

Like in mission impossible movie, AdwCleaner self-destructs after initial use.

MBAM is a good standalone AV to run on demand between scheduled scans by MSE which has real time protection.

Please post a screenshot of what you are seeing. You should have the DLL in question.

Sorry, I should have mentioned not to even bother with the first part of the article. I've edited my post to reflect that.

Not only that MBAM is a true AV, but it is actually, in my experience, better than some paid for AV's, e.g., Norton. Through the years MBAM has picked up viruses including Trojans that other AV's failed to detect. Because free version does not provide real time protection(paid for version does), I use it specifically in conjunction with MSE with which it works well. Other AV's do not work well with MSE.

Malwarebytes Anti Malware is exactly what the name implies.
It does work well with just about everything because it is not a anti virus and has never claimed to be.

Two anti virus programs on the same computer at the same time will cause all kinds of problems and will not protect you better. Most likely your computer will be less protected.

I've been using free MBAM in conjunction with MSE for many years now. Often it picks up viruses, including nasty Trojans which it automatically removes, which MSE with its real time protection occasionally does not detect. I do not know how such effective malware detector/remover is not categorized as AV. Semantics?

I tried the Pro version with real time protection on trial basis and found it more effective in picking up and blocking threats/viruses ahead of MSE. I still do not know why it is not considered an AV.

On the other hand, sometimes on scheduled scan, MSE detects and quarantines malwares, including viruses which its real time protection failed to detect and block.

Somebody of more advance PC skill...please explain why MBAM is not considered an AV.
