Windows 10: Introducing the Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta
I have Spybot S&D 22.214.171.124 which I think works better and is free. Malwarebytes premium would possibly conflict with Spybot S&D Resident Protection. However, Malwarebytes free program doesn't have real time protection but you can do manual scans. This is just my opinion. I have been using windows 7 with MSE with no issues and it has detected a bad download a few times.
No offense meant, I am not being sarcastic, I am just curious
What do you do when someone comes in with a Linux system, you sure can't install Malwarebytes premium. Why would someone with a Linux come in, upgrade their hard drive or add memory or cpu.
So, how is this different than MB Anti-exploit, besides covering vectors outside of internet activity, such as opening a file?
Uhm it works in the background by itself so no need to do anything.
Do not install very unstable beta!
It was causing problems so I uninstalled it. I had to reinstall Office 365 and Pale Moon because of false positives. I still need to check to see if all my programs will run.
Since the beta 3 the only false positive I'm getting is WinDirStat. Office 2012 and 2016 both work OK (I only use Word and Excel though). PaleMoon portable works but I've not tried the installed version as I don't use it.
I've got it installed on 10586 (x64) and 14257 (x86) and it is much more usable than a week ago.
I also removed it - due to False exe Blocking...
So far no problems with it. Guess I'm lucky.
Beta 4 released last night.
Download link (beta4 - build 0.9.12.336)
Need to download as it won't auto-update.
Thanks for that. It has fixed WinDirStat so I'm not getting any false positives any more (that I've found anyway )

I'll wait until for a few more releases. I saw the warning about office being ransomware. After that I couldn't open it. When I tried to run Pale Moon I got a message about the program not being found. When I checked the Pale Moon folder the .exe file was missing. I haven't checked all my programs yet to see if any more have been deleted.

At the moment I'm using Bitdefender anti virus and Malwarebytes anti malware. Would it be advantageous to install the above program. I'm not sure I fully understand what this program is trying to do. I have read the description on their web site...
