Malwarebytes not doing good in monthly AV-TESTS

Recommended Posts

I hope that the new version is doing better this time, version 3.7.1 has a not so good AV-test score as you can see here.

Even Windows Defender is doing better then Malwarebytes! Lucky for me, i use both of them the same time. If MWB want to be a competitor to antiviral products they will have to work a little harder on that. It is really as many complains here on this forum, slowing down your Computer performance.

I long ago stopped taking much notice of these antivirus rankings. I don't think they reflect what happens in the real world. I'd be much more concerned about having a good backup strategy  in place than worrying about where my chosen antivirus / anti-malware ranks. I have faith in the Malwarebytes approach to computer security but also stick by the product because I've found the support through these forums and via support tickets to be first class.

I don't take much notice in the antivirus ranking of all the company's that do the testing. If I was to do that I would be changing antivirus on my computers more and more yearly. Malwarebytes saved my rear on my PC about 5 or more years ago from malware. Through this forum and their Support it was cleared without problems. As for Malwarebytes slowing down a computer, I see no slowdowns on both my Win 7 computers or on my Mac computer.
