Definition of malware: "noun. Software that is specifically designed to disrupt, damage, or gain unauthorized access to a computer system." I installed Malwarebytes on the recommendation of Apple Support. I've already let them know my opinion of their recommendation. First off, Malwarebytes does not support scanning external hard drives on Macs. Their convoluted excuse is that Time Machine should not be scanned. But I don't use my external HD for time machine. Another part of their excuse was that it was virtually impossible for an antivirus or malware to get installed on an external HD. Needless to say, I found numerous articles that contradict this claim. All I wanted was for my external HD to be scanned. So seeing as this was not possible, I proceeded to uninstall malwarebytes from my Macbook Pro. I used the malwarebytes uninstall feature.

After that I checked the HD for any malwarebytes files because I have no faith in most tech vendors. As I expected there was a file left in the StagedExtensions folder that could not be removed because it was required by Mac OS. I found it remarkable that my Mac OS could suddenly not function in a stable manner without a file that was only installed on it yesterday after having functioned just fine for over a year without it. I called Apple Support and their only solution offered was to do a restore OR completely reinstall my Mac OS. So, my sum experience with Malwarebytes is that it claimed it could not do basic scanning functionality of an external HD for what I view as highly dubious reasons and when I decided to remove it because of this lack of functionality, it could not be completely removed. If I could give a lower rating I would but I cannot.

I recently left a 1-star review describing a renewal feature that in my opinion leads you to renew twice, and how I was refused a refund. A second representative with a completely different tone responded later, stating that I would be refunded. He then asked if I was satisfied with the resolution, and if he could close the ticket. Very different from the first rep. In any case, I was in fact refunded. Time is money. Mood affects performance. While my situation was resolved, it wasn't without significant costs in these areas.

Original Review: Jan. 8, 2020

I accidentally renewed my subscription twice, for which I was charged $40 twice. The response to my ticket asking for a refund for one of these was that I now have two years, no refund, and they closed the ticket without a response from me. I replied saying that I prefer to purchase renewals one year at a time, no response. I opened a new ticket, no response. How was I even able to renew twice??? I don't do that with other renewals. These guys have really shady financial practices.

This program is downloaded to ball my devices at one price. It stopped AMAZON TECH SUPPORT from intrusion an number of times. It stopped wanted twice on my tablet, it tells you if a new app is safe or not, couple this with CC cleaner & you're in great shape. Once I sign out on my laptop or another device it Cleans an sites from the history for what sites or searches you were on. They offer 3rd level security & Re working on finger print scan.

I first purchased a Malwarebytes product back in 2014. It was described as MBAM, malwarebytes anti malware. It worked well on my desktop but it was a disaster on my Lenovo laptop. It caused the laptop to become unresponsive and unusable. Tech support were unable to solve the problem and so I switched to their other product, MBAE, malwarbytes anti exploit, which worked fine on my laptop, and so I have used that all these years (until Dec 2019) even though it was probably obsolete and no longer supported. I continued to use their anti-malware on my desktop.

In Dec 2019 I decided to try their new product called Malwarebytes premium. I thought any issue it may have had with my laptop would have been found and solved. So I bought a license for 2 devices. Ya, you guessed it... It made my laptop unusable, freezing, taking 10 - 15 minutes to respond to clicking an icon, error messages that windows has stopped responding...

Support asked me to do a clean install using their support tool, which I did. I was unable to use my laptop since installing this and had to go into Windows safe mode to uninstall it. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it 3 or 4 times, sending logs to support so they could try to help. Nothing. After more than a week they asked me to send another set of logs for them to analyze because the previous logs showed no reason for the problem.

The day before I decided to try Bit Defender. It is free to try for 30 days. I uninstalled the malware stuff and put in bit defender. The laptop is happy. I replied to their email that I have uninstalled their software because it does not work on my system. They sent another email saying that unless I have comments or questions they would consider the matter solved. SOLVED???? Not even close! But yeah, I can find another device to use the malware license I paid for on, but when the subscription expires, I will be using bit defender. Malwarebytes puts out a good product, but I have heard of issues like mine, it does not work for everybody. Tech support should be faster and more efficient instead of leaving users waiting days for answers that never come.

Disaster! Pop up reminder to upgrade to latest version, 15 times a day, so I eventually clicked on INSTALL: It removed the older version, which worked fine, restarted my PC without a new version! I was left without any AV guard. I clicked support and got nowhere, even 2 days later NO answers from Malwarebytes teams, just bot replied to my emails saying they'd get back to me (when? Some good when you have an emergency!) So, I tried re-buying the package, as new, thinking I'd get a refund, as I could prove I had 2 product keys for the same PC. Well, I had to download ANOTHER version, pay around 40 Euros (I'd last paid in GBPounds £18, April 2019). Would it work? No! Downloads then won't execute after unpacking itself. SO frustrating. I will never use those cowboys again. Still waiting on that promised Email, 2 days later... and refunds overdue.

It has been my experience, that every time I use Malwarebytes, it never finds anything threatening, yet it picks up programs I have paid for and use almost daily (such as any and all IObit pograms, of which I use (and LOVE) four: ASC, Uninstaller, Driver Booster and Smart Defrag). Earlier today, which is in fact the reason I was prompted to write this review, I wanted to download the highly-rated EaseUS MobiMover - an alternative to the awfully bloated iTunes which is normally required for iPhones, and Malwarebytes would not let me on any site in order to download it telling me it was a Trojan!

Since it gave me the option of adding the site(s) to my Malwarebytes exception list, I did so, installed it, ran it and THEN I scanned with Malwarebytes so that it could find this "Trojan" it warned me about, and of course, it picked up nothing. THAT prompted me to get to the bottom of why it kept picking up my IObit programs and whether this "Malwarebytes" was really as good as it is purported to be. Well, first, I discovered that there are a lot of lively debates about each program picking up the other as malware, and of course, you have opinions on both sites. I did find however that on the Malwarebytes side, A LOT of people were coming to the defense of Malwarebytes - BUT they all seemed to be ASSOCIATED with Malwarebytes.

Anyway, after looking up and reading some "real people" reviews on Malwarebytes, but MOST OF ALL, based on my OWN experience, I uninstalled Malwarebytes. I LOVE how IObit helps keep my systems in TIP TOP shape (although they need to work on lowering some of their prices or on maybe developing a low-priced bundle which includes all of my favorites) and for me, Malwarebytes did not prove itself enough (ever, really) for me to keep it over another program which does more, and better.

Buyer beware! Malwarebytes sets auto-renewal by default, and the first time you will hear of it is when they have already charged your card for renewal (in my case, $65). Try to get a refund, and they direct you to the third-party payment processing company (2co), who will tell you they can't refund you because they sent the money to Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes (Cleverbridge) then implied that I was too stupid to provide the correct information to 2co, and basically wished me luck.

This company will auto-charge you for renewal and then refuse to refund your money, even if you haven't used their product for more than a year. If you're inclined to do business with people like this, please make sure you figure out how to turn off auto renewal, and then turn it off! As for the product, I don't see that it ever did anything for me. The price for the product is ridiculously high. The product itself, in my opinion, is classic malware.

I've been an MBAM customer for many years. When I first purchased the product I got help several times and it was friendly, prompt, and not greed-based. I purchased a lifetime license key/ID combo that CLEARLY stated it was for use on three computers. I have no idea where I made the purchase; the only thing I remember is seeing the deal via a cNet advertisement. Years later it suddenly stopped working on two of the devices upon which I had it installed. When I contacted customer service it was like the CSR was reading off a script: "that wasn't true, you were mixed up, etc." I'm not stupid - I know what I purchased, and I made a note of that when I recorded my Key & ID.

So there was strike #1. Then in other years past I purchased three more lifetime key/IDs and installed them on devices. Over the years I made sure my Subscriptions tab in my MBAM account was accurate, and when I needed to decommission a device I removed the credentials from that device, then when I got a new device I installed and once again made sure my Subscriptions tab was correct. Just within the last approximately six weeks, the message started appearing on one of my devices that my "trial" had expired. I never had a trial installed on that device - I'd had one of my lifetime key/ids installed. I tried to re-enter my credentials and got the msg "this is blacklisted."

I went back to my online account and could not log in. I'd enter my credentials and hit Login and the cursor would endlessly spin. I tried for days on end and finally got in. The first thing I did was check on my Subscriptions tab - there were devices listed under three of my licenses that I'd never seen before. I deleted them.

Because of the problems with logging in and the Subscriptions tab, I thought the MBAM site had been hacked. I changed my password. I also submitted a ticket outlining the problems. Over a week went by, in which time I tried repeatedly to log in again and could not. When I finally got in, I again changed my password and had to delete NEW strange devices off three of my keys. I put in another ticket.

After over a week a tech emailed me and proceeded to give me the runaround. Not at all the kind of help I'd received in the past. Finally the fellow tells me bluntly that MBAM will not help me unless I give them a RECEIPT for the purchase of my licenses. I was dumbstruck. I do not hoard receipts for items from years past, and also I'm sure I bought all these via the web and I have no idea where I got them. Instead, I recorded the key & ID for each. That was the vital info!

Now I've been checking online and have found numerous posts about similar things happening to other customers. I believe that MBAM has gotten greedy and is going through their customer base and wiping out keys that were purchased as Lifetime. Their excuse for not needing to address the problem is that they won't provide customer support unless the customer can give a receipt, which they know is highly unlikely for the customer to have. MBAM isn't the company it used to be. I'm confident that as more people post what is happening to them, we will finally see other companies fill the void by providing an affordable app with HONEST customer service.

I never ever auto renew anything because I often find a better product in a year. They auto renewed without my permission which overdrew an obsolete credit card costing me $45.00 in overdraft fees. I called thinking it was a simple error but the coldest rudest boy pointed me to a famous slight of eye trick corporate advertisers use...

To place order you hit BUY button... It take you to billing page. You fill in card info... Scroll down to huge button saying PLACE ORDER large lock to add to distraction... Just above the button, in fine print is a line "By placing this order you agree to the Terms and Conditions and auto-renewal" in BLACK but Terms and Conditions stands out in BLUE and as we all know, there are always a box to select... NO box... NO option so of course you hit PLACE ORDER and don't notice to the right "By placing this order you agree to the Terms and Conditions and auto-renewal".

Update on 04/11/2019: April 1 or 2 of 2019. I get an email notice from Malwarebytes that 39.99 was being deducted AUTOMATICALLY from my bank account? And not only that, on about February of 2018, they showed me an invoice stating that I purchased the order! I DID NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING from them!!!! When I asked them the name of the AGENT who initiated that sale, not a word back from them? (Fernando was the Rep I wrote to?)

Yes, they said that they would return the latest 39.99, but when I thought about it, why shouldn't I get the So-called Purchase price too, for I never purchased anything from them! I told him that via email, and have yet to hear the NAME I asked for, or that they would send that total of $79.98! I am not senile and I am not vulnerable because I am a senior citizen! What kind of so-called Tech outfit is that to play games with me! First of all, my daughter gave me a FREE site that would take care of most of the problems, that is if there were any? I used the FREE site before as well! I know people do their best, but like I explained to Fernando, (I think that was his name,) that someone wanted to get a few extra bucks by submitting my name and numbers? Where they got all that stuff, I do Not know, but I feel scammed and want that full $79.98 back?

Original: Somehow, I did come in contact by those people, but I did not want to buy-in to their services! I wrote to them just in case they did get the wrong idea, but all I got from them was an Automatic payment system for stuff I did not want? I wrote to them early on telling them I did not want to subscribe to their cost-inducing program! By the way, I couldn't afford another expense! I feel like suing them!

Then when I got my latest email from them telling me about the yearly 39.99 yearly fee they were deducting from my account "AUTOMATICALLY", I wrote again with no response from them? I don't want their junk, I just want my money back because of unfair advertising practices! Are they doing this to all Seniors? To those contemplating dealing with them, make sure you are not set up for Automatic billing! I never did that in the past and will never do that in the future! Not my way, especially with a meager S.S. check each month! This is the truth and the authorities have been notified, I assure you of that! Thank You... Tom.

Updated review: July 1, 2019

My ticket was finally escalated to a senior tech (Technical Team Lead) who worked with me faithfully AND knowledgeably AND WITH a sense of real continuity for I think over a month on just about a DAILY basis until the RTP failures finally ceased. 'Finally someone who wasn't just repeating the party line, reading from a script, ignoring my feedback and issue details, passing the buck, and wasting my time! VERY refreshing. AND impressive. To THIS AGENT I'd give five stars +! That agent even agreed to keep my ticket open on an extended basis (because it was taking roughly a month between RTP failures). I'm afraid I'm sticking to my review about the first-line "support agents", however. They can be very frustrating to deal with (I got to where I could download the support tool, send up the logs, and reinstall the product in my sleep), but professionalism DOES exist at Malwarebytes and they DO strive to update and improve their product (which in the world of IT security, is the name of the game - security providers CAN'T rest on their laurels and be considered competent and they MUST deal with vulnerabilities or other issues raised by the use of popular, widely-used, sometimes uncooperative & unwilling to collaborate, third party providers, e.g., browsers). I wish it hadn't taken so long to have my repeating over-and-over-and-over-again issue finally escalated to someone who could handle it, but it did eventually happen and that person knew their business. I'll obviously continue to use their product, but dread the prospect of having to get back in line with first-line support over the next real issue should one arise...

Original Review: April 2, 2019

For almost a year the product's RTP (real-time protection) has failed on something like a monthly basis. Win7 HP x 64. Actually, when this happens the application and its features can no longer be accessed, necessitating a restart in order to temporarily be able to access it and so in a sense the product itself fails as well as the RTP. I've contacted Tech Support every time, and they've been unable to resolve the issue. They close tickets after a few weeks, and so I keep getting new trouble ticket numbers, and new tech support agents, who tend to repeat the same instructions I've heard before (send logs/update/reinstall, after which the product usually functions again for about a month). I really would not recommend anyone spend money on this product unless they can improve the quality of it and their tech support. It's security software, and so IMO should be more reliable and, well... SECURE!

I want to warn customers whom it may concern about selecting the ~ Nov. 2018 "UPDATE" for their FREE version of Malwarebytes Anti-Virus software. Be prepared for the company to deceptively wrest control away from your PC's Windows Defender (main firewall) and to reset all your previous settings per manual and periodic use of Malwarebytes.

I have used this free software for several years and want nothing more to do with this company... EVER. The insidious deception involves leading diligent PC customers to intuitively believe they need an update. After all, what could be more important online these days than to be running the latest, most secure updates of malware & virus protection?

WRONG! Malwarebytes wasted over an hour of my time (not including this communication to warn others) investigating why my trusted Windows Defender shield icon with reassuring green checkmark had disappeared from my Win10 Taskbar, then having to do troubleshooting web searches, then REMOVING Malwarebytes from Programs and Features FOREVER, then having to restore my settings, all the while having to restart my laptop a couple times, not knowing why there had been a red check mark in my Defender shield icon (when it finally did reappear!).

I've been a PC tech and owned a PC repair and small business network installation facility for over 20 years. Many antivirus companies get better and worse over the years. For example, Peter Norton and McAfee pretty much were there from the start. However both of these companies now owned by Symantec and Microsoft respectively although large have become complacent and now put out low grade antivirus utilities. Malwarebytes is the best today virus program and many techs use it. Since ver. 3.0 it's also a full antivirus solution as it was more focused on the very newest of virus and was run in conjunction with other utilities.

Automatically cleans and scans and updates itself (paid version). 7 months use and no problems. Malwarebytes blocks, isolates, cleans threat data fast and effectively. Highly recommend.

I've used Symantec Enterprise and Norton consumer, McAfee, Kaspersky, AVG, and Avast. Malwarebytes has caught things they all missed without slowing down and/or taking over my system.

I use the Malwarebytes software and have never had a problem. The software has detected malware issues in the past and has deleted them. It also available as a free trial version!

I bought a lifetime membership years ago and haven't looked back. I have not had a virus since that time. It's easy to use. I set it up for a daily virus scan in the middle of the night while I sleep. Nothing could be easier. It even warns me if I venture into murky waters. Before Malwarebytes I had tried Norton but nothing protects like Malwarebytes.

I have been using "Malwarebytes" for several years with no problems. You pay a one-time fee of $25.00 and you're good to go. You receive updates as they are available.

This software has been superior for me in all respects and catches many viruses Norton does not, or catches them earlier. I highly recommend it to all of my friends, and even some of my enemies.

Malwarebytes was recommended by Apple when I exposed myself unwittingly to a potential malware and/Or virus. They cleaned up effectively everything wrong with my computer and I am 100% satisfied.
