Do give us a few more words about what you thought of it? Detection rate, ram, usage, interface...
Alright,

GUI - Fine
Detection Rate: Shockingly bad in my test anyway.... It picked up a few (less than 10 files) out of over 500!
Then with the free version you cannot even remove any threats! You have to purchase the software to remove threats...
Performance - Fine

I will probably not even post the review since it's really not good...

Actually, people say that PlumBytes Anti-Malware is a total scam, it's developped by cybercriminals and the only interest they have is trying to say there is a virus on the computer, and then ask you to pay to remove that threads.
That can be the reason why it only pick a 2% of the samples :S

you can post an ultrashort video (3-4 mins) to demonstrate how bad it is, without voice, just on-screen descriptions so people will know and avoid this product :)

I'm gonna name drop! @roger_m have you tested this software before? :)
Yes, I came across it and tested it a few weeks back. It has it's own scan engine. Scan times are long and on my laptop, CPU use at times exceeded 91% when running a scan. There is no option to do a custom scan, or to scan from Explorer's context menu.

It has very aggressive detection of PUPs, and it detected some harmless traces of PUPs I have tried in the past, which other scanners have missed. While this is good, the items detected are not malicious, and I have the feeling that it would not do so well against actual malware. Because there's no context menu or custom scan available, I was not able to test it with a recent malware pack.

It's not clear if it is possible to add any detected items you want to keep to an ignore list so they are not detected again.

All in all, it's a very average product. I'm sure it's not malicious, but it's not worth spending $50 on either.

It's a fraud. I installed plumbyte. Scanned for any virus. Actually it seemed I had no virus. But it shows some registry keys. I deleted those keys. Now i have to restore from system image. Unfortunately i took system image just few days before only.
