    Sorry i questioned without reading about their new features?????
    It seems that now this product can give tough competition to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

    Most unlikely. Why?
    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not an Antivirus, but even if it was, IMF would need the Bitdefender engine in their Free version to even compete.
    PC Mag's Review of IMF Pro v3 was the worst (IObit Malware Fighter 3 Pro (PCMag Review)).

    Great antimalware program! 3/50 items detected!


    Seriously, IOBIT dosen't do anything, all of their products don't do anything.

    This is a BETA product, don't expect it to work at 100%.

    Can you post the link of the samples and results of other anti-malware scanners? (De-link, if required).

    A nice move to make their software less useless by adding some well known Bitdefender Engine, looks legit. Why would anyone bother? Get Emsisoft then, has Bitdefender engine and is not a piece of crap; plus a solid BB module.

    I tried the 3.0 a long time ago. (3 months ago)

    They were less then 30 day samples, Avast got 57/60, MalwareFighter got 3/60. Maybe this version changes things a bit, but I doubt it. I Don't have a link because its so long ago.

    I disagree. At the very least their Iobit Uninstaller is very good.

    There is no need for a uninstaller tool. Leave the program files there, its not going to hurt. Unless you are on a 16GB HHD then who cares?

    @truemax: Iobit's Malware Fighter is a legitimate security product, the thing makes it worse is due to their in-house engine.

    -----------

    So I'm not surprise, that's the end of drought performance however they fail to incorporate their own techniques.

    As for your claim of "detected 3/50, but don't have the link to the samples", I say you strongly dislike IObit software and will do anything to discredit their software / reputation.

    It's also very convenient that the link for the samples doesn't exist, even though the Beta product was released less than 2 days ago.

    If you're having any issues contact your ISP, so they can ring up the NSA/GCHQ to access your web history, to assist for the 2 day old link.:p

    The problem is on your end. In case you hadn't released but this Beta is for IObit Malware Fighter version 4, not 3. And if it was tested a month ago, why are you posting it here. :rolleyes:

    I tried to post a detailed review of something some time ago, but my comment has been deleted because I said some members can be a bit idiots for doing or saying a certain thing.

    Now I guess this comment is gonna be wiped too, BUT I HAD to say it.

    IOBit Malware Fighter VERSION 3 was indeed totally useless.

    THIS IS VERSION 4 Beta, which is tremendously different BECAUSE it adds Bitdefender signatures.

    And yes, I've tested it.

    And yes, whoever says it detects 3/50 should go to hell.
