Hi. My name is Foulest, and I love MBAM. It has helped me recover computers from viruses, malware, and trojans in the past. It is great, but when they released 3.0, I was astounded in their steps to being a better program. I would not personally replace my antivirus for it, but it is a good second layer of protection. I would replace it however if it had around four features that in my opinion would make it a better product. I feel like with the changes it could bring to the table; it would be a highly regarded anti-virus product. I know these will take a long time to implement, just need feedback if these would be good changes to make for MBAM in the future if possible. I added visuals to what these changes could look like as well. (I use Kaspersky). Okay, so the changes: 1. "Application Manager." The Application Manager would be very helpful to add to MBAM. It would replace programs like Unchecky in the Installation Manager tab and would make a more secure environment when installing software. If an application tries to change something outside of the application like modify system32, it would stop it and prompt the user with a warning. 2. "Firewall." The Firewall is pretty self-explanatory if you know a little bit about anti-viruses. A Firewall would make MBAM a complete product and in my opinion, would make people regard MBAM as an anti-virus product. I feel like the firewall is pretty necessary for an anti-virus; i.e. why I use Kaspersky. 3. "System Watcher." System Watcher is a pretty neat feature in Kaspersky. It rolls back malware actions, like deleting or modifying files. It has exploit protection, which MBAM won't have to implement because it already has something similar or better. It monitors applications to see if they produce malware-like activity, and prompts the user or does a set action. It also has Ransomware protection which MBAM already has, so that's fine. Just the central two features would be impeccable to have. 4. "Webcam Protection." Webcam Protection is pretty simple: warns the user when the webcam is used and has a customizable blocking feature for applications. So, what do you think? These features would take quite a while to implement, but I don't know. Could be cool in the future. I made all of these from Kaspersky in Paint and Pixlr. Thanks for reading!
I was formatting a MicroSD card, and it was taking an awful lot longer than usual. I opened up the thing I use to track resource hogs, and sure enough, MBAM.exe was bobbing up and down to and from about 6% of total core usage. One by one, I disabled each layer of protection. The highlighted area is where I disabled the Anti-Ransomware layer. The formatting picked up speed after that. Now, since that was the last layer to be disabled, I don't know if it was that layer of realtime protection specifically, or just that any of them at all were running.
