As the subject states is; Grindisoft Anti-Malware any good? as a on demand scanner (disabled real time)

Never heard of this company so i would not put a lot of hope onto it. Also, i see this company is new to IT security so their database definitely terrible, and Malwarebytes can do ways better.

It is not free.$30 USD for a six month license is way too much
I think you must pay for removal if it finds anything.Similar to HMP
A lot of FP's!!! I would consider Herd Protect over this considering the FP rate
IMO there are better on demand options
It has been my experience that if the name is bad,in this case Grindisoft,the program is probably bad :D
If I were to pay for an Antimalware solution it would be Emsisoft good pricing and superior customer service.
Nothing wrong with trying it out though

"Please be aware, that trial version can find threats, but cannot remove them if there were more than two threats found. In such case, you can ask us for the free trial key."
I have to ask them for a trial key? Why don't they just simply give it to the user? After all, it is a trial.

I would assume to get you to buck up for a license.Many complaints on this very same question.

I never heard of this product until last night while I was surfing looking at anti-malware products.
