For the liste software, in the case there are more licenses available I alwasy refer to purchased/non-free option.
defnitely my case!or possibly just paranoia.
what is HMPA?Some good secondary’s IMO, provided no conflicts, could be OSA, HMPA, Thor foresight, and Hard_configurator can even be nice to use with a lot of software in its recommended/stock settings.
Malwarebytes is one of the most used products in the world.
It is an AV-like product. It still is designed to work with AVs, but they market it as an AV replacement.
But the malware detection rate of Malwarebytes is now pretty terrible. See 'Jump the Shark' thread.
But I've collected multiple lifetime licenses... and have a lot of computers in the household --- so I do still use it as an adjunct capability. It's GREAT with PUPs. Ironically, MBEB makes Malwarebytes even less useful as MBEB flags PUP/PUA.
So in summation, Malwarebytes is not that great and not that useful (in light of MBEB).
But for some strange reason, I still use it on multiple machines and I like having it there.
I still use Malwarebytes Premium as a second layer to WD. It catches things WD doesn't always. It also has two other benefits. It has good web filtering for all browsers, without having to install extensions on other household computers that aren't mine. It also has exploit protection, and since I have an editor in the house that uses Word all day, it's a good benefit to have it running in real-time for her. I go back and forth using it on my own machine. The memory usage isn't bad if you have a decent amount and I notice no slow down. I think it gets a worse reputation than it deserves after the rough start of 3.0.
Yeah, you are right about the web filtering. And the additional security layers for exploits and ransomware is not a bad thing.
But.... the available evidence does indicate that it's not good at wide spectrum coverage. But maybe that's ok -- maybe the additional narrow coverage it provides is benefit enough.
Again, I use it on multiple machines. I think there is benefit. Although MBAM is a shadow of what it once was... I still kinda think it is coming back.
I got 5 devices for $24 or something like that. I keep an eye on the discounts thread on Wilder’s.
