    MBAM & MBAE full versions vs CNET (do this only in a VM)


    A post I just made at Malwarebytes Forums, and I'm curios as to what comments and questions there will follow, I also sent a bunch of logs of the test.

    I have installed Windows 10 insider leaked build 10558 in a VMware virtual machine(to test theme patching software later without nuking my system).

    Then I suddenly thought of a How to Geek article: Here’s What Happens When You Install the Top 10 Download.com Apps and knew what I wanted to try

    I prepared my VM(an unactivated clean install) by cleaning up the OS install leftovers using disk cleanup and Ccleaner(the ONLY 3rd party software before test), I let Windows sync with my account, made sure what can work on an inactivated build worked, then I installed both test Beta's from MBAM & MBAE, turned on the free trials, left them to defaults except MBAM, which I turned on rootkit scanning, and went to CNET downloading.

    Windows only blocked one download, but Malwarebytes refused to let some crap on my system a few times, note: I tried to make sure I used the wrapper downloaders and not direct(I wanted to have fun right?), I also tried a couple at Softpedia.

    By the way, it was fun to be able to just, once, click through the installers, without paying any special attention

    Could you post your results zip here too? You have to be a member to download from Malwarebytes. It would be interesting to see.
