MalwareBytes 3.0 Review – Malwarebytes vs Malware

In this video we’ll take a look at the latest version of Malwarebytes, Malwarebytes 3.0.  Malwarebytes 3.0 combines a bunch of their separate utilities into one complete package.  Here are some highlights of the new release (most of these new features are only available with premium):

  • Scans are about 3 times faster.  A typical scan takes about 1 min.
  • Anti-Exploit is now included.
  • Anti-Ransomware is now included.
  • Works alongside your current antivirus or by itself (replacing your anti-virus).
  • Web Protection upgraded.
  • Updates do not need to be scheduled, they download and install automatically now.
  • The self protection module now automatically starts
  • Reboots from malware removal and not as frequent.  Reboots only happen when they’re really needed.  That always drove me crazy.
  • Malwarebytes Premium costs 39.99 a year and it’s well worth it IMO.

Here is a two part video review I made for the new Malwarebytes 3.0:

    Thanks Matt – great video! Very interesting to see Defender beat MBAM to the punch! I’ve been recommending it for my clients who are on a strict budget. If they can’t afford MBAM, I buy a 3 license copy and spread it around to help folks out.
