I am putting together a small comparison of 3 different Malware Programs.
- Hitman Pro ( New Version) - Free for 30 days and then payware
- SuperantiSpyware- Free and Pro version
- Malwarebytes- Free and Pro version
These 3 programs are all programs that work hand in hand in your Anti virus program, they do not replace it. Before I start this comparison I would like to know what program is preferred by our members and if they use any of these at all. I still believe that there is no replacement for good surfing habits but at one time or another we all click on the wrong link.
Hitman Pro - Excellent and fast scanner with a detection base that is unequaled. So far and I am not done I have found no false positives. It only has 1 version, the Pro version, that does not have real time protection.
Superantispyware- Pro version - Real time protection and autoupdates. Free version has to be run like Hitman Pro but imho, does not detect as well. ( Even though they have numerous updates, I believe most of what they detect to be harmless.)
3 Malwarebytes- Free version ( no real time protection) Pro Version has real time protection with website blocking and filesystem protection).
I picked these 3 Malware programs because I believe they are the most popular among the users in general.
I am testing all 3 of these programs for at least 1 month, I will be posting my results in this thread, if there are any questions about these programs please let me know.
. Testing for false positives will be done
Testing for leftover malware will be done.
Testing for known malware will be done and posted what program detects the most dangerous and how it deals with them.
For now I am just asking that you use the poll I created and let us know if you use these programs and if you think they help at all.
