If you just want to scan for Malware there is a free version of this. And for active protection AVG will do that for free.

I disagree bigsky... this product is ace, and it find stuff that free proucts like AVG and Avast don't find. I say you need both antivirus (most have some anti-malware thrown in), AND pure Ant-malware. I use it all the time and I have antivirus too. Also AVG in particular has started to bloat.

sounds like all your security will clash and void itself?

I don't know why this is getting voted cold.

had some particulary nasty virus \ malware before. The likes of Sophos \ Norton all tried and none worked as showed nothing up.

This application and Prevx were the only things to find and resolve the issue.

Bargain at this price

Voted hot. This is a lifetime license and you can transfer it to a new pc when you eventually change.

Just going away to check what anti-malware my McAfee security suite has before going for this.

That can happen if the two programs are resident i.e. trying to block viruses on a continouous basis. However, as bigsky suggests, I use one program as my resident antt-virus (avg free would do) and then use free version of Malwarebytes to get rid of anything which has managed to get through. The two programs shouldn't clash then.

using common sense, and not using programs like Adobe Reader should mean this program isnt required

By resident, do you mean installed? That is, would I need to uninstall AVG before installing and running this and then uninstall this before installing AVG?

When I went to purchase it gave the option of an 'extended download' (Available online for 24 months from date of purchase)

I'm reading that as you cannot download it as many times as you like for life, but only for 12 months.

If I'm right then this is a waste for someone likes me who reinstalls their OS every couple of months.

Proshould be OK to run alongside you regular antivirus, it's designed to do so, and shouldn't give rise to the same problems encountered when using two AVs.
However, there are some combinations that may require tweaking, I think one is Eset.
Let Google be your friend.

excellent bit of software would recommend!

Protection and AVG don't belong in the same sentence.

Would this be recommended as well if I use MSE?

They don't even when pro eg file system protection enabled etc

Avast/mbam pro [ok] / avg / mbam pro [ok] / mse / mbam pro [ok] eg no issues or any threats let through.

I use this with Microsoft Security Essentials using real time protection on both and they work really well together.

You need only download it once and apply serial for pro. Each re install either use same version you originally downloaded then let it update to latest version or just get the latest trial and apply serial to unlock pro version.

The free version does the things I need it to. Cold.

It probably doesn't when you look into it.

Granted, the free and pro versions are exactly the same product. The exception being that in the Pro version you will have 0 day real time protection against malware as well as the ability to schedule updates and scans. The pro version also has the IP Protection module that will help block unsafe websites.

The free version is not pro-active; it will only do something when you tell it to - you have to manually ask it to scan/update right? In the time inbetween your last manual scan/update, a malware infection could be downloaded and already have caused havoc in the background without you knowing a thing.

AVG is terrible though.

Extended download services are a huge con. When you buy this software you get an ID and Key e-mailed to you (as shown below). Should you need to re-install it at a later date, simply download the latest free version of MBAM from their website (or FileHippo) and enter your numbers once it has been installed to upgrade from the free version to the Pro edition.

Why on earth do you do that?

I thought that - but having real time protection is really worth it.
It's caught a few nasties for me trying to sneek onto my pc that I would have only found if I had done a periodic scan.

would recommend this without hesitation.

one of the few pieces of software I've actually paid for. (_;)

If you use your brain before you go clicking links on-line 'willy nilly' you do not need anti virus/malware

Yes just throw your money away instead

Good product, does its job well.

Totally worth it, I run it alongside Microsoft Security Essentials and it has saved me a couple of times. The free version is fine, but it's an on demand scanner only, whereas with the Pro version it's actively protecting your machine. Most free anti virus programmes aren't the best, AVG failed on me everytime, MSE is okay but again I've read some terrible reviews elsewhere, for the price I'd say this is worth it as the protection is rock solid. I paid a lot more even with a discount code about a year ago

£9.99 on Amazon

This is a fantastic program, I have the Pro version and use together with ESET NOD32 both are happy running side by side, I also run a HOSTS file and the system is fairly well protected, however I do have a couple of things configured across my network, although I'm IT so this does help.

Ever heard of drive-by downloads? It doesn't take much to get infected with a trojan these days. e.g.

AVG has let me down several times, now with free version of Avast.

Malwarebytes is a solid program, very good results.

I need about 50 licences for our school PCs would this be a good buy rather than buying AVIRA then having to renew every couple of years? Or is this just for Home PCs?

I personally run the free version of this every month or so. Plus I use Spybot weekly and use it's immunization feature, along with scanning.

I have, or had MSE installed until it decided to mess up, right now I have Comodo... but in all honesty I'm half tempted to get rid of it as well as I never seem to get viruses, or if I do it's a false positive any ways.

OP - I think you need to edit the title to show Amazon is £9.99...
