P.S. If you guys can cover it…Malewarebytes is apparently no longer free? I did an update recently after a while of not having done so, to discover that apparently they are forcing people to pay now to execute scans, etc……?
That would be a huge bummer.
And if so, is there any other freeware. I’m not a cheapskate, I’m just extremely poor!
Also, the update they’re telling people to remove patched a security hole. Looks like you get to choose between a secure system (at least to the extend that’s possible with Windows) or receive the occasional BSOD.
Wait. What ? The free version of Malwarebytes WILL get new definition updates. The free version does not run real time protection. Also, pay attention when you install Malwarebytes Free version and opt out of the free pro trial when you do install ! In the free version you have to manually get updates from within the program. In the pro version, updates are automatic. I would not be caught without Malwarebytes on any of my systems and I am running the Pro (grandfathered in for life from version 2.0) version on every computer I own.
