Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware

RH Numbers

Even though most decent anti-virus packages will also pick up malware, adware and spyware, none of them do it quite like Malwarebyte’s standalone Anti-Malware software. So the free version doesn’t give you real-time heuristic protection or a scheduler, but if you can remember to run it every now and again it will keep to safe and clean.

In the event that you slip up and something gets by it will help to eradicate it with ease. Even malware that attempts to block MalwareBytes from running can now be defeated with the latest version using MalwareBytes' Chameleon technology.

Even if you only dabble a little with coding, it’s a great tool to use due to its simplicity and miniscule footprint. Now you have no excuse not to make those tweaks to those mothballed projects.
