    I'm curious to try it assuming it doesn't conflict with Prevx, anyone know yet?

    Really? If people are even considering using software from IOBit they should be reminded at every turn. You don't just steal and hope the Internet forgets about it the next day, no sir.

    Installed Iobit then installed a malware sample hitting deny/remember at every prompt from Iobit.

    Rebooted after things seemed to settle down and scanned with Iobit and MBAM.

    Did you count the malware threats in Malwarebytes?
    You can just compare objects with threats, it could be that that 75 objects are a total of 5 threats. Try removal and both and then scan gain.

    Oh by the way, I don't like Iobit neither. And Malwarebytes' is the better product in every single way. Period.

    It loads a service "Blue Bird " service...I don't know what it does.

    I haven't started the program...so it is "on demand". See screenshots.

    I will never use another IOBit program regardless of how effective it is. Once a thief always a thief.

    Hmmm, MBAM on demand locks up when checking for updates with Iobit active and the only way out of it is a reset?

    I agree and it's not something I would ever use knowing their past.

    Hahaha, let's continue discussing the software now :)

    Seeing those few tests, it seems that it's still not that effective though remember MBAM counts every single trace as an object too like the guy above said so you gotta check :D

    I like a lot Advanced System Care from Iobit. But concerning to security i have to agree that a company that steels others (MBAM) signatures is not trustable... How can people know that they are not simply stealing again?
