Malwarebytes is one of those seemingly simple programs for detecting and removing viruses, spyware, Trojans, worms and other dangerous files that are often very useful if you use it in conjunction with your usual antivirus.
Malwarebytes works by monitoring system processes, stopping those it identifies as malicious before they run. The program has two scanning modes, one superficial and the other detailed, which will consume much more time in exchange for greater reliability. It also includes a memory protection module that will prevent any potentially dangerous process from using it, as well as quarantine lists to examine suspicious items.
Apart from this, Malwarebytes includes some minor options such as File-Assassin (to delete files blocked by Windows) that can help you when it comes to eliminating detected malware.
Infecting our PC is too easy. Although we have our antivirus active and in force, it may be the case that we accidentally click on the link that we should not and that in a few seconds we have malware in the kitchen. Each case is different since there are many types of malicious software with different infection systems. Even so, there are a series of basic generic steps that we can take to disinfect our PC.
