Malwarebytes Anti-Malware offers an impressive detection and cleaning technology and it’s a very popular product among internet users.

It usually comes to rescue when traditional antivirus software doesn’t detect or can’t clean heavily infected machines. It can efficiently remove trojans, spyware, adware and worms, but it can also handle worms and other malware types.

The free version comes with on-demand scanner only while the Premium version has realtime protection, scheduled scans, malicious website blocking and removable disks scanner.

This software has three scanning options: Threat Scan, Custom Scan and Hyper Scan, which checks for active infections only and quickly removes them. The last option is premium only.

Custom scan on the other hand is very useful for advanced users, and you can define which area on your system you want to be scanned: either a drive, system memory, registry, startup objects or rootkits.

It has context-menu integration in Windows, for a faster scan and it is updated on a daily basis. It has full compatibility with any other security software installed on your computer and supports all Windows versions starting with 2000, ending with Windows 8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit).

Its powerful signatures engine is doubled by a recently enhanced advanced heuristic engine that boosts its detection capabilities.

What's New in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.2.1 :

• Improvements:
- Context Menu scanning option is now enabled by default. Note if you had this option disabled previously and want to retain that setting, you must disable again manually this one time only. Future updates will retain the setting properly
- Improved renewal experience for those who purchased in retail store so that the original license key is retained post-renewal instead of requiring that a new key be entered and activated
- Improved End of Trial experience so it is clear that trial has expired and real-time protection is no longer available
- Added additional license checks to ensure subscription details are updated as quickly as possible after a renewal is processed
- Updated company and product logos with new logo
- For Premium subscription licenses, removed Renew button from My Account screen to avoid confusion over license term
• Issues Fixed:
- Fixed security vulnerability to ensure database updates are downloaded over SSL connections only
- Fixed crash that occurred if Dell Backup and Recovery software was installed on same system
- Fixed issue where scheduled scan did not honor weekly recurrence properly
- Fixed issue where license expiration notices were incorrectly displaying multiple times in rapid succession
- Fixed issue where the Scheduler would continue to run in certain cases after a trial had expired
- Fixed issue where the update progress bar on the Dashboard would appear to hang and would never complete
- Several improvements to Chameleon self-protection
