Getting hit by a malware is the worst thing that can happen to you. You cannot rely completely on your anti-virus for safeguard of your computer from new and evolving threats that can make your PC completely insecure and slow.
What is a Malware ?
A malware is a malicious software or program running on your computer. It can disrupt the normal working of your computer by interfering with your system files or programs. A malware is capable of gaining passwords, sensitive information or unauthorized access to your computer system. Malware is a general term for a program running any exploit on your computer. A malware includes worms, Trojans, root-kits, rogues, dialers, spywares, adwares etc.
There are plenty of Anti-malware tools available on the internet both as free and paid versions and one common thing about them is that they all are bloat-wares and not at all effective, so can make the condition of your computer more sick. But as I say there is always a hope in this world and this time it is an Anti-Malware tool from Malwarebytes.
MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) is an anti-malware removal tool developed by Malwarebytes Corporation. It was released in January 2008 and is available both as free and paid version. In free version you have to manually start the scan process for scanning files while the paid version can perform schedule scans, real time scanning, IP based blocking to prevent access to malicious websites and a flash memory scan option which only scans the opened services, programs and drivers.
