    Zemana AntiMalware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, are both very good, and I use them both.

    Any Antivirus is an Anti-Malware as well

    Problem is, most are "meh". Specialized products are "the thing" IMO, not "ultra-mega-complete suite" that does 10 things poorly instead of one thing well.

    Nowadays an Antivirus and an Anti-Malware are the same thing. 10 years ago or more maybe it was different

    The reason behind that is marketing a poor performance.

    Could you tell me the difference between a malware and why an antivirus is not an antimalware?
    ZAM uses "av" engines and it's own cloud to detect malware.

    Hey, don't get me wrong, I wasn't disagreeing with you, just posting what MBAM have to say about it.

    I believe that the Free version of zemana currently gives a trial of zemana pro,which may explain why your "Free" download says "paid".
    You can switch off the real-time protection should you just want the "On Demand" capability of the "Free" version...
    (It is worth noting though that my experience of doing this about 4 months ago showed that despite my "on-Demand" requirements,Zemana was still making regular outbound connections as it would for "Real Time" protection).
    Remember that neither the Free versions of Malwarebytes or Zemana Anti-Malware offer the "Real Time" protection of their "Pro" versions,and are instead "On Demand" Malware Scanners.
    Personally I recommend Crystal Security.It is "Real Time" and "Free",and can run alongside an AntiVirus Software too.
