I am using Avast Free Antivirus latest version, also Malwarebytes latest version running in my Windows 10 Creative Update 64 Bit. I am using my PC for personal use. Some description of Malwarebytes says that it can replace Antivirus with Malwarebytes, I used this and I impressed because it can remove hidden virus and other Malware that antivirus does not easily detect, I also used trial of Premium features, Premium features are excellent, now automatically activaed in free version. I planned uninstall my antivirus product, but some questions that makes doubt, not only for me, but also many users which is running Windows 7, 8.1 and 10: 1. Real Time Protection only works in Premium, not in free, so can free version also block virus and malware if accidentaly run? If yes, then why cannot notify that particular file has been removed from your computer? I asked this because Malwarebytes only notify after complete "threat" or "custom scan". 2. What will heppen if external disk attached in my computer(which is already infected by autorun virus like AUTORUN.INF) and only Malwarebytes free version run(no other antivirus running)? Because built in Windows Defender only notify, but cannot automatically block. 3. Is Malwarebytes planned to build thier personal Firewall? Windows FIrewall is good, but not better as compare to 3rd party free firewall softwares like Comodo or ZoneAlarm. 4. Why Malwarebytes not building PC performance booster and junk files cleaner apps? I asked all questions which is running Malwarebytes Free for personal use only.
I want to know some information and facts related from PC tune-up/optimization software, Malwarebytes detected some PC optimization software as PUP like in "IOBit Advanced System Care, Auslogics Boostspeed" etc. PC optimization software can maintain startup program, clean temporary and unnecessary extra files and leftovers that really slow down PC, I noticed that Malwarebytes showing PUP in full featured PC optimization software even if software is free and downloaded from official website. I read some FAQ and Malwarebytes says registry cleaner is not necessary but no any user wants to store extra thinks in PC. I am not a technical expert, but I can say that Malwarebytes added some PC optimization programs in PUP list because some PC optimization programs disable some activities related from Malwarebytes. If my think is wrong, then tell me actual facts.
I am using Malwarebytes Free v126.96.36.1998, component package v1.0.322, Update package v1.0.4324 in my laptop Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, my question is why Malwarebytes always ask for "restart pc" to complete malware removal process. Other antivirus software can remove malware successfully in most cases without requires restart. It requires restart in case of aggressive malware or running malware. I know that Malwarebytes successfully remove malware during restart without leave any malware traces, but my according it is a time consuming process. Now my request to team Malwarebytes to add antivirus ability in his product, Malwarebytes can remove most malware, but some things that still depend on antivrus, and because of performance, if Malwarebytes added antivirus ability(even in free version), then no needs to install any other security software, even if it is free.
I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit in my laptop Acer Aspire E5-511. My problem is related from Malwarebytes performance, in january 2018, I downloaded Malwarebytes v3.3.1 from official website, and I recently updated to v3.4.4(also downloaded this update from official website), the only problem was in previous version that some times Malwarebytes startup not work, if startup not work, then Malwarebytes not successfully opened unless restart laptop, but now after this update, additional new problem came, problems are, 1. Slowing down laptop performance. 2. Generating driver compatibility problem(bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity). 3. Some applications are not working in default speed(specially startup programs). And yes, I am using latest version of Avast Free Antivirus. Because I know that any antivirus or antimalware can few decrease PC performance. But I was not faced these additional problems in previous version of Malwarebytes. And because of performance issue, currently I uninstalled unless the problem not fixed.
