Hi All;

I have been reading Posts and I see that it is recommended that one download and install Malwarebytes'Anti-Malware. Is this the new tool for Spyware, Malware, Grayware, etc.? Is it to replace the Ad-Aware 2008, Spybot - Search & Destroy or is it just an additional tool? Please provide your comments. Thanks.....

I would not consider it a replacement for Ad-Aware or Spybot Search & Destroy, but it instead complements them. It's not new, it was released I think in the latter part of last year, and is an excellent tool. You can find instructions for using it in this topic:

I don’t think it has replaced the Ad-Aware 2008, Spybot. I think MalwareBytes have became more famous by the time as it is new in market and it takes update time to time.

I am closing this extremely old topic.

MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) has become a standard tool for malware removal. The free version is effective against many infections, and real time protection is available in the paid version.
