{ Malwarebytes Anti-Malware }


Section 0. Background Information
  1. AVG AntiVirus 
    • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) is an application for computers running under the Microsoft Windows operating system that finds and removes malware.
    • MBAM finds malware that many other anti-virus and anti-spyware programs miss, including rogue security software, adware, and spyware. MBAM scans in batch mode, rather than scanning all files opened, reducing interference if another on-demand anti-malware software is also running on the computer.
