Malware bytes Free Version

Right now, I have Panda installed. But, I was wondering if I should try the free version of Malware bytes. Is it the same as Panda, or better?

There is no relation or comparison Panda is an Antivirus and Malware... is not,
Panda provides real time protection and MBAM free does not,

That's why I gave you the link to MBAM Pro at Newegg that's 50.00 u.s. on a one time payment that does not expire,
MBAM Pro provides real time protection where as MBAM free does not,
The free version only catches corruption after it's downloaded and installed too late many times,
Cheers.

Okay! Just wondering. So, you think I should just stick with Panda then, right?

Malwarebytes is a good free second opinion scanner. I would install and use it alongside panda.

That's what I did. Both Panda and Malware bytes do good. I am thrilled at how good they work.
