MBAM 3.0 and av-comparatives.org in Malwarebytes for Windows Support Forum Posted March 4, 2018 · Edited March 4, 2018 by Davidtoo Interesting thread, and I don't know what to make of it...but I feel perfectly secure using Kaspersky Internet Explorer as my main protection, which is probably the best if not one of the best security suites out there (no...I could care less about the alleged Russian hacking on dod computers) and Malwarebytes Premium as secondary protection. I have noticed Malwarebytes prevents me from going to certain malicious websites at times so I know its doing something, and truth is, I doubt much will get by Kaspersky anyway. I've had bad experience with AV suites. Started out with Iolo System Shield years ago, and it didn''t take long that I had to reinstall the operating system due to infections. Then used Symantec on my Business server and workstations...it still updated definitions but apparently stopped updating the engines. The results, after various experiences of my system being penetrated, turning off Symantec in the proces, once so bad that one of our computers was actually being used by a Hacker as a botnet, storing a thousand or so viruses.... I decided to go with the best. Kaspersky is actually very reasonably priced if you buy an older year version and than update. Malwarebytes I always used the free version, and it always found stuff that Symantec, etc. missed, including getting rid of those damn pups (that my wife always seemed to get). I then picked up a malwarebytes lifetime premium license. So the bottom line to me... even well respected companies, like Symantec...screw up, but since using Kaspersky and Malwarebytes Premium for a few years now....NOTHING has gotten through, email ways, malicious website ways or any other ways. Would Kaspersky be enough? Probably... but I like the secondary protection from Malwarebytes. Kaspersky is not perfect... as Total Virus has told me, at times letting malicious links getting through the email scanner. Of course, being wiser now, any suspicous Link I run through total virus... but I still feel better knowing that malwarebytes is there to catch something if I mistakenly click on a link that Kaspersky let through. I'm still steaming mad at Malwarebytes trashing my hard drive last month with its defective update...but I kind of suspect that it has revised its procedures and absent a rogue employee, that's not likely going to happen again... that cost me, so far, $300 for a new hard drive and the use of a tech and of course 1.5 days of lost productivity.
