Windows 7: Whats the most recommended Anti Malware??

04 Apr 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Malwarebytes is what I use and have for quite some time. I "rarely" have any issues...but this seems to keep everything squeaky clean.

MBAM is probably your best bet. But it can't replace a good A/V tool either. I usally run both MBAM and Avg at once to catch anything that tries to slip through.

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) SP1

hi !

well, if you look at previous posts in the forum, the most recommended is MBAM.

but, i suggest a-squared:

why ?

because it has a lot better detection-rate than MBAM...

but why choose only one ?

it´s much better to do what i & others do, get multiple antimalware-scanners.

if fx. a-squared misses something then MBAM might find it etc.

we must remember that no antivirus / antimalware-program can detect everything,
that´s why it´s so important to use more than one program !

I must be the lone decenter in against recommending Mbam. Dont rely on it solely. Use a mix of other malware programs such as superantispyware, spybot, etc.

MBAM+Spysweeper+a good AV like kaspersky a strong protection..

I agree with hackerman1 and swarfega.

While I don't use a-squared, I highly recommend it.

Test your anti-malware/anti-virus protection with EICAR
As many of you know(quite a few don't) what EICAR is, this is a open poll to see what programs pick it up and what programs fail the basic tests. I am conducting this poll because A-Squared failed to see this on a scan, but MSE picked it up before it could be downloaded. So after you take...
