Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - More Protection For You

Posted By Gary R.

In using the Internet especially, the law of "unintended consequences" seems to play havoc with even the best computer systems and the law is not something you an plan for it just happens as when your IT specialist installs a new version or patched version of a program that is carrying malware.

Malware isn't software that you can really see, feel or touch, it's just software that sits on your machine day after day, and may be recording your keystrokes, looking at your mailbox contacts, looking at your regular online visit sites, quietly putting together quite a dossier on your computer use.

Then one day, the master computer, located somewhere on the network, goes out and poles all its malware kits for the information they have gathered and suddenly folks who had assumed that their machines, which are located on corporate intranets with only a few VPN tunnels through or located on very tighly monitored and fire-walled systems are receiving information that they never asked for. We won't go into some of the information that is spread because, suffice it to say, it is really outrageous and, in some cases may be untruthful or even hazardous to your health.

This is where Malwarebytes Anti-Malware comes in quite handy as it scans your machine for these hidden programs and when it finds them it resigns them quite quickly to "File 13," also known as the "Round Bucket." They are zapped and our machine is cleaned up so that you can rest easy, knowing that: Your machine is clean; You aren't spreading them.

Oh, that's right, we forgot to tell you that malware tends to go into your contact files and emails and look for any machines out there that are not already loaded with the malware or one of its colleague programs and if it isn't when the malware is finished, it is.

Malwarebytes is constantly updated so your machine has constant protection from the latest in malware programs that may be out there. The key is that you have to constantly ask your system to update itself if you want to stay on top of the problem, but, if you are conscientious or you know how to write small command code subroutines, you will quickly find that you can run these pretty much automatically.

You will find that this relatively simple, yet powerful piece of code note only restores your peace of mind, but it also blocks all sites where malware and spyware software originates while also removing it from your system.

These people try to get success with sheer numbers. They send their malware out to thousands of people, with the hope that even just a few of them slip up and let them on.

I heard of this one scam where they send you an email that looks exactly like it's coming from your boss, and when you reply to give him all your personal info, you've actually just given it to cyber criminals.

Anyone know how much this might set you back?

Be careful which pop up ads you click on, because even just the act of clicking on it can allow viruses to enter your system.

You can never be too safe in this digital age.

So, what's the difference between malware and spam?

I haven't heard of this particular program before, but anything is better than going unprotected. Getting a nasty virus can cost you hours of time, not to mention the loss of your stuff.
