    Interesting review as a previous review I read said to stay with the free version as the implementation of real time protection in the paid version wasn't very good. Different review, different result. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2345349,00.asp

    that review is about v1.36 which didnt include ip blocking.

    MRG used v1.42 pro.

    In my experience its ip blocking and detection of rogues is very very effective.:thumb:

    Interesting they (MRG) now think Malwarebytes is a decent tool, aka "extra level of protection working right next to your primary Anti-Malware application".

    Too bad MRG lost a lot of credibility back when they were trying to bash the very same product.

    Maybe this is a new years olive branch to the makers of Malwarebytes.

    The ludicrous and totally unwarranted levels of animosity toward MBAM from this group was the main reason that it lost any credibility for me.However this does seem to be a welcome change of stance.

    Personally I don't need any test to show me the value of MBAM,personal experience on many occasions where it's found and removed malware tells me all I need to know.:thumb:

    Well MBAM has always had a lot of supporters, but if they can win over those who were most critical, then that says a lot about the strength of their product.

    The PM had a lot of new tech added since 1.36 as well . This tech when added to IP blocking makes getting 0day on a lot of threats easier . To a lesser degree the new tech makes the scanner better as well but its intention was to deal with polymorphic threats predicatively .

    Will it work on a 64 bit machine?
