    How good it is? Especially comparing to SAS and Windows Defender. Thanks.

    I really don´t have a clue. Personally, I´d rather use the more well known products from bigger companies (Kaspersky,Avira), to me it´s likely that their products got a bigger and better signatures database.

    I tried this for a short period of time, MBAM is still being worked on to release a final version.(it's still beta)

    So IMO SAS would be a better choice being a proven product.
    Unless you like testing out beta software,in which case my only suggestion would be to make sure you have a good back up/image/snapshot plan just in case. It happens......it happened to me. Not from MBAM but from another software developer. So i'm staying away from any beta anymore.
    WD I would not even consider myself. But that's just me.

    Is this an on-demand scanner or does it run resident?

    Right now I believe it's still just on-demand.
    But it should have a guard by final release.

    Thanks Lone Wolf. I have downloaded the Beta version. It looks like the paid version will have the resident monitor. It is right now an on-demand scanner with both a quick and full scan option.

    I have been using it now for about a week. I like the scanner. I had one false positive that was fixed with the public release (version 0.87). The public release can be found at:

    It has a quick and full scan mode. I have not tried the resident monitor. Looks like it may be functional in the public version.
