Keep your PC free from malware with IObit Malware Fighter

Anti-malware apps want to be free.

It’s true. I really believe that anti-malware apps want to be free. Serious security vendors provide free apps that can hold their own against just about any bug that hits the internet. Their premium version adds, in my opinion, convenience features that make the paid version that much more of a value-add, so the purchase is a natural extension of continuing on with use of the app. However, for that to really work, the free version needs to hold its own. This is the major reason why I like IObit’s Malware Fighter. It’s a free anti-malware app for Windows.

IObit Malware Fighter is an advanced malware removal utility. It detects and removes the deepest malware infections, and protects your PC from potential spyware, adware, Trojans, key loggers, bots, worms, etc. With its improved, unique “Dual-Core” engine and heuristic malware detection, Malware Fighter is tough to beat.

Malware Fighter has IObit’s unique “Dual-Core” engine; and improved program core structure. It now delivers more comprehensive and deeper system scans to find the deepest system infections. It removes or quarantines them, protecting your PC from more security threats and privacy compromises. IObit Malware Fighter can assist your antivirus to defend against tricky and complex threats. However, please note, that no solution, despite vendor or technology used, offers a 100% effectiveness rate for detecting viruses and malware.

Malware Fighter’s enhanced real-time protection provides you with tools to keep your computer secure all the times. It uses the latest Cloud Computing and Heuristic Analyzing technology to analyze the behavior of the malware it detects a fully automated mode. It’s fast, light weight, and easy to use.

Scan, fix and repair issues on your computer with Reimage

The Windows Registry is a touchy thing. Screw up your Registry, and I don’t care how great your PC is. The performance is going to tank. This is one of the reasons why I like Reimage. It’s a Swiss army knife utility for windows.

With Reimage, you can perform a quick scan of your PC’s Windows operating system. This will help you uncover specific information that will help you understand the problems your system has and what needs to be repaired. While the Registry is one of the items it scans, Reimage does a lot more.

Reimage scans for security threats. Malware including computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, dishonest adware and other malicious and unwanted software are easily identified. Any files that have been tagged as malicious and harmful to your system will be deactivated and quarantined.

If your PC is having hardware issues, such as low memory, hard disk speed, CPU power and temperature, Reimage can recommend solutions for you. For example, if your PC’s CPU temperature is too high, you’ll be advised to clean your cooling fan. If the scan detects low memory, you’ll be advised to add more, etc.

Reimage is also the only PC repair service that has the ability to reverse the damage done to your operating system by replacing any damaged or missing files on a Windows operating system. It does this with the use of a continuously updated online database of over 25,000,000 updated essential components. Every time you run the Reimage program, it will immediately download the latest version and files you’ll need for a successful repair.

Anti-Malware Programs Should be Free

Based on what’s available, you should never HAVE to pay for your anti-malware app.

I’ve been a freelance technology journalist for over 15 years. I’ve written for CMPnet, AOL/CompuServe, UBM TechWeb and for a number of print publications, including a local Chicago paper that is part of the SunTimes family. I’ve looked at a boat load of malware scanners over the years; and its clear, you have to have (and USE) one on your computer. You just do… Unfortunately, there’s really no way around it.

However, just because you have to have and use one, doesn’t mean that you have to pay for it. And you certainly don’t have to pay yearly subscription fees after your initial purchase. There are a number of scanners out there that are really very good, and are free.

Any and all of these are GREAT scanners, and more importantly, they’re all free, and don’t come with any kind of strings attached, such as subscription fees for updated AV definitions. I’ve used all of these at one point or another for both Windows and Mac, and highly recommend all of these. Most scan for viruses, worms, Trojans and the like, and may even help with phishing scams.

If you don’t feel comfortable with a free solution, or prefer the additional or advanced features of a pay or subscription based product, that’s fine. In the end, you just need to find one that seems to work the best for you…and then USE it. Let it run, regardless of WHEN it wants to run its scans. Let its definitions update. The utility can’t protect you if you don’t let it scan your PC and/or let its definitions update itself. Most modern PC’s have multi-core processors. Any performance hit you take is going to be minimal, and should be tolerable. Besides, any performance hit you take is well worth the benefit you receive.

Get rid of malware with the latest version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware

Most PCs are connected to the Internet and networks, making easier the spread of viruses, trojans, spyware, rootkits, worms and other malicious programs. They can get into your computer in a number of ways, including via your web browser, e-mail, or in a bundle with a software that you download from the Internet.

The best way to protect yourself is with a virus or malware scanner. Emsisoft Anti-Malware (previously known as a-squared Free) is a program that can be a good choice to scan and remove malicious software from your PC. The new version comes with great improvements and completely re-written dual scan engine for multi-core optimizations which brings a huge speed improvement on average, with the same things being scanned. Also, the false positive handling was improved too and now with the latest version, there is a caching system which makes the scanning faster with every scan.

Also, the user interface has been simplified for better usability and there are lots of usability improvements all around. You can now set missed scheduled scans to run on next program startup and desired actions to be taken on scan completion can be set before the scan now, too. Another important change refers to the licensing system. User accounts are no longer required and it was switched to a simple key-based system.

If you decide to Emsisoft Anti-Malware, you’ll get the full version including all protection features for 30+3 days for free. However, after that period of time, the software switches to a limited freeware scanner mode that allows you to scan and clean your PC whenever you want, but does not include real time protection.
