Malwarebytes Anti-Malware giving out FREE license keys
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is giving out 100% free beta keys for it's new 2.0 version!
A lot of people ask me about the best anti-virus programs out there. A consumer has so many choices these days it's hard to tell what's good and what's rubbish. From AVG to Panda, McAfee to Norton, the computer stores are brimming with candy colored boxes luring in unsuspecting customers. Obviously the best anti-virus is common sense. Don't download the .exe file attached to that weird e-mail in your spam folder. Don't crack/steal software using key generators from Russia. Easy stuff people, c'mon.
But as far as actual programs, the two I recommend are Windows Defender and Malwarebytes. Windows Defender is a program that comes for free on newer Windows computers and is a free download for older Windows machines. If you don't have it (and have a legal copy of Windows 7 or up), download Windows Defender here, it's free! Do it now.
But as for paid programs, I always recommend Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Why? It's powerful, it's fast and it stays out of the darn way. The one thing I hate more than viruses are bloated slow anti-virus programs that slow down your computer more than the damn virus! I'm lookin' at you Norton!! But Malwarebytes is super slick. And now they're trying to make it even better with version 2.0. They are now shipping with built in and improved "Anti-Rootkit and Chameleon self-protection technologies" that they have been working for a year now. Most importantly, the detection and removal engine was significantly improved. It was already awesome, now it's going to be even sweeter. What's more is that they are giving the whole thing a much needed facelift.
Before and After with Malwarebytes
So, now to the cool part. You can try out the new 2.0 version absolutely free! (Also note: Sorry Mac users, this is Windows only.)
They mention that this is beta and is not necessarily stable, but it's still worth a look. It's not 100% certain if the beta keys will continue to work after the beta. But they do mention that, although they are changing to a yearly subscription model, they will be honoring all the lifetime keys they have ever given away as well as giving out more lifetime keys. So if these beta keys expire and you see a good deal on a lifetime key, snatch it up. Trust me, this program is worth it!
