    How much more "real world" do you want? The guy acted like what a normal user would do; browse the web then try to clean the infection.

    Dude can you be less theatrical? MBAM employees spamming this thread all the time and crying like a baby about the unfair world is not really the behaviour of a "bigger man" and its fellows. You state your product is overall better than a2. So please prove it instead of showing the mentioned behaviour?

    Still no answer to my question...!!

    WHY if MBAM is only truly effective when malware is active and running on a system is the right click scan option there.

    I would prefer not to execute in the first place.Perhaps this is why a couple of `on-demand` scanners is preferable...

    Not looking for an argument just clarification, does it utilise it`s advanced heuristcs on dormant files/folders?

    Did you expect anything else? You guys asked for it. I love your attitude as a professional company too.

    This thread is becoming a flame war, people take a deep breath, Emsi Softaware has done nothing that others didn't do before.

    We had a chance to hear from the Malwarebytes representatives, it is clear to everybody now that MBAM is a tool for clean up, end of story:cool:

    Stop acting like kids if you want to sound like professionals;)

    Excellent point:thumb: In the real world average web users don't act like malware researchers.

    To me, right-click scan is important.

    And it must be to plenty of others. That's why plenty of guys here upload suspicious files to virustotal (and others), to see if a file is malicious before it is installed. They don't install a file first, then run the scan.

    I agree with almost all arguments here.

    SAS and MBAM shouldn't be included in right-click scan tests, as they work on active infections, but at the same time, these products should clearly describe their role in layered security and use as additional tools.

    And for every test you find showing a product as being great, you'll find another test saying it sucks. :) 1:1 ratio.

    Unless you're a company like Symantec/Norton, and nothing can stop the cash from rolling in. ;)

    I understand that MBAM and SAS don't like this test. However, a lot of their users use them as on-demand scanners so this kind of test appears applicable. Aside from emsisoft, which is expected to be on top with it's own samples, the other products results seem to follow the norm.

    Exactly, and the same thing happens with the replies to those tests. Around and around it goes. I really don't see where this thread is progressing, so we're going to give it a rest.

    Thread closed.
