What do you think?
Your poll is a little misleading because the title is about malware, but one of the options mentions viruses
The 2 are not the same
That said, running Malwarebytes won't hurt your system and can find and clean much of the common malware
I've run the free version a few times, but never have found anything
If you are experiencing anything unusual, I'd say give it a go and see what you get
Don't be shy and vote
I think the protection needed depends on the user. If the user has a basic understanding of how bad things get on a computer, it's not needed. If the user likes to click every link, open every email, and download lots of files from questionable sites, then yes it's needed.
Yes, you should run MalwareBytes.
No, you DO NOT have to use "the paid version".
It will run FOREVER IN FREE MODE.
When you open it, IGNORE the button to "Upgrade Now".
Just click "Scan Now".
Again, you DO NOT have to buy the pay-for version!
Yes you do need some protection because even the most security wise can be fooled or get careless and allow malware in. By-the-way Malwarebytes includes viruses, trojans, etc. in their definition af malware. While you can run the Malwarebytes Free version, forever, the paid version runs automatically on the schedule you set and updates iself silently in the background. If I find an app to be useful I feel the developer deserves to be compensated for their effort whether it is marketed as commercial ware, shareware, donation ware, or even free ware.
It is all good but where is the smart "it depends" option?
I picked the Mac's are safe option for now. But it's something that needs continual monitoring.
Some might need it. I use common sense and would never, ever put Malwarebytes on my computer.
I've been a user os MBAM since its incept (and a Paid Subscriber to MBAM since it required the whole "Pay-To-Play" paradigm (PC, *+* Mac), and it /has/ helped me to be more secure...
...yet, the logistics of the 'PTP' thing has proven to be problematic (esp. on the paying side of things (payment processors--in general--have gotten a bit unruly, and far (far) too big for their britches)) . . . subscriptions sp. to MBAM have become a PITA ;/
I don't mind paying for something I envision holds-value, but the process could be a lot, lot easier 8-|
If MBAM doesn't get their ***** together wrt/"Payment Processing", I'm definitely gana go Clint Eastwood, and let my Web Exp. go Raw.'
