Malware is usually short for malicious software and any software that causes the computer to malfunction, collecting sensitive information about you, unauthorized access to your data and system files, displays unwanted advertisements and the like. It is usually “invisible,” a parasite in your computer and hooked up to another application or the operating system itself. The term “malware” is made Israel like back in 1990 and this year. What you need to know is that the malware umbrella term under which includes viruses, worms, Trojans, ransomware, spyware, adware, scareware, Netware and the like.

In the market, there are a bunch of useful anti-malware programs that are successfully fighting with malicious code and completely free of charge and supplied with good enough for everyday use. So let’s look at what’s available and what would you recommend me to use.

Microsoft Security Essentials

Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is a great software that comes with Windows and is one of the best software of its kind. There are two streams of users – those who argue that the MSE is good enough, and you do not need a third-party anti-malware protection and those who claim that MSE successfully defends computer for months. It’s hard to say who is to the right, but our experience with MSE infection is extremely active. First, Microsoft updated regularly, and on most tests proved satisfactory. On the other hand, the MSE can be very slow in scanning your computer and knows to take a lot of computing resources. On our computer, MSE works about 70-75 minutes, which is twice the average. Frankly, we were not too constant speed as long as the MSE can find anything that could infect us.

The problem is the only ransomware that detects dangerous enough and often referred to pass through their “filters.” Also, MSE works well when you install it on a “clean computer.” Then you defend well, but if you manage to install on the infected computer, it is possible that you will not succeed entirely clean. But no matter what faults, we are superb, and we only use this application on our Windows machines. For the installation of setup: Antimalware Service Executable a Pre-Installed program.

Malwarebytes anti-malware

When you open the application, you will see a big button “Scan now” which is the main “feature” applications and offers a complete overview and computer protection with the excellent report at the end of the scan.
Malwarebytes comes in two versions – free and premium. The free version is good enough for everyday use, but premium yields of features that we would like to see in the free version. One of these is a characteristic real-time scanning and prevent malware that comes to the computer. The free version will find malware on your computer and remove it, while the premium version to keep him from ever infecting your computer. Also, the premium version and quickly scans the computer, or using a better algorithm, but it does not matter. A lot of computer scan takes about 35-40 minutes.

Zemana antimalware

Zemana antimalware software is relatively new in the market and has already jumped to the top. Especially when we’re talking about ransomware protection, but about that later in the text. Zemana we were delighted with what is a very “lightweight” application that does not even know that you have on your computer, and terribly useful. It is a cloud-based application that always has the last updated database of malware and provides virtually real-time protection. As soon as the malware appears on the computer and is detected by a user, it will most likely be within a couple of hours to find in their base with adequate protection.

We mentioned ransomware. For those who do not know, it is a malware that you block access to your data, practically all over your system until you pay a certain sum of money to a particular account, and then you will (maybe) your computer will be unlocked. An excellent example of the same is CryptoLocker who for years has been located on computers around the world. Zeman has good protection against it and practically all such attempts to “refuse” from the start. In the paid version you will get more and better security, cleaning browsers, add-on and history.

Emsisoft anti malware

And in the end, we are left with Emsisoftov antimalware which is specific because it uses two engine in the background. One is to remove unnecessary programs on your computer use too many resources, and the other is to detect threats that you might endanger. Because it uses two engine, does not mean that use twice as much computing resources. Indeed, the benefits are less than the competition.
