    Yes it is. However if you feel uncomfortable about it, you can go onto the main Malwarebytes site:
    AdwCleaner - Free Adware Cleaner & Removal Tool | Malwarebytes

    Hi, thanks for getting back.


    I ran malware bytes many times but it didn't pick anything up. It's weird cos there's so little about it on the net. It must be a fairly new thing. Not up to date on how nineties works. Ste

    Malwarebytes is quite a popular program for clean-up of malware; see for example the main update thread on Tenforums
    Latest Version of Malwarebytes - Windows 10 Forums

    ( Whilst you were at it, did you happen to try out the AdwCleaner as well, or was it the one which did not pick anything up ? )

    It's not a virus, it's browser cached items! Delete them.

    Hello das10:

    Although BleepingComputer.com has always been quite trustworthy, however on occasions the library content can be stale.

    This is the case with the MB3 installer file. To be more accurate, the file can be updated after the completed install but the less experienced user may not be that aware. In the case of installer files that must be transferred to the computer in question via Sneakernet.

    My general advice is to always download from the highest integrity site known. In the case of Malwarebytes, their CDN servers will always contain the highest possible release versions.

    Recently, Malwarebytes management began to have the MB3 installer updated at least weekly if not more. Secondary sources usually do not keep up.

    Download: https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3

    With great respect.
