    You mean like win 10 beta OS should not be used in a prod. environment? ........ whatever
    Sorry, I was merely quoting the developers, for the safety of "basic"computer users.
    Advanced users and early adopters will always be on the cutting or bleeding edge.
    And software vendors rely on such users to beta test new products.
    But these sophisticated users know how to protect themselves from system damage and/or how to recover from it, in the case of unstable beta software.

    Such a detailed discussion or debate would seem to be a bit off-topic for this thread, in which the OP asked about an ANTI-VIRUS, no?

    Hi:

    Sorry to flagellate the deceased equine yet again...

    But, for the OP and anyone else who might happen upon this thread.

    MBAM Free does NOT provide real-time protection. It is only a manual, on-demand scanner to REMOVE malware that made it past your AV onto the system.

    For real-time, complementary protection to help PREVENT infection alongside one's AV, one needs MBAM Premium*.

    I hate to keep harping on this. But we see folks at the MBAM forum rather often who either thought MBAM was an AV, and/or who thought that MBAM Free provides resident anti-malware protection, or both.

    I just try to clarify and manage expectations (not sell licenses, as I have absolutely no affiliation with the company).

    Cheers,
    MM

    (*The paid version has been called "Premium", not "Pro", since March 2014. I mention this only to prevent someone who might search for "MBAM Pro" on the 'net from downloading or purchasing some sort of fake/rogue version.)
    The Malwarebytes Pro option was already mentioned. Check my post out again.

    There are so many products and I know that some of them make problems with other applications some not working good yet with windows 10 some better more or less. After all they are costing money so it's a bit mess.
    Paying for AV is a waste, it is actually all those premium features, which cause problems, the less the better.

    When you install AV, choose the minimal setup, like with Avast, un-check optional features with others.

    The best free antivirus 2016 | TechRadar - you can try all and keep the one you will find reliable.

    We share that opinion,I've used AVG free and Avast free going back many years ,outside of the upgrade nagware both are fine IMO and Tech Radar is decent IMO .... first thing on this new HP PC OEM bloatware that was tossed before I rolled in the 14393 AU on the OEM HDD and 10586th2 was an operating trial MaCafee bloatware plus


    I even ran the MaCafee cleaner exe and removed any related registry keys left after that in regedit and mayybe i ran Ccleaner before all that ,that I seldom use but I think thier was so much MaCafee bloatware plus left over I used the Ccleaner reg tool

    I can get full boat MaCafee bloatware plus free from my ISP but choose not to .

    I just run win 10 defender and nbam and mbam Antiransomware beta and mbam free Anti Exploit real time protections .......all free and don't use Edge or IE Explorer aka malware funnel .
    The malware geysers haven't bothered 4 win 10 PC here

    Yes, indeed.
    Replies #4 and #5 both mentioned Malwarebytes "Free or Pro" for protection.
    So, in reply #6 I merely sought to clarify the difference between the versions and why I did so (mostly for the OP and others who might read this thread).
    Nothing more, nothing less.
    And, certainly, I meant no personal offense.
    I sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding.

    My experience was different. When I was testing Malwarebytes anti ransomware I was getting way to many false positive. This was causing programs to be deleted.

    360 is good but it's also a false positives fest.
