Top 5 Anti-Malware programs

Introduction

Here we go, the top 5 anti-malware list. First of all, i want to tell you, what is Anti-Malware. Anti-malware – is a software, that protects you from malicious programs like viruses, trojans, adwares, spywares and so on. You may say: “Oh, such as Kaspersky, Norton or McAfee”. No, those programs are classified as antivirus software, they are good, but against virus, trojans, crypts. They have some problems detecting adware and spyware, which are popular nowadays. Those kinds of malware are not dangerous for your PC, but harmful for your privacy and your purse. Moreover, adware and spyware can download viruses and trojans or leave them access to your PC. So anti-malware is more functional then antivirus.

Programs

In many removal guides you can see, that the most recommended programs are SpyHunter 4, Stronghold AntiMalware and Malwarebytes Anti-malware. Also i want to add two less popular anti-malware: Hitman Pro and AdwCleaner. Let’s speak about each one separately.

  1. SpyHunter

  2. The first one will be SpyHunter 4, the product of Enigma Software Group. SpyHunter 4 – is an anti-malware program, that mostly focuses on spyware and adware. It can scan your PC, detect many kinds of threats (including virus, trojans, adwares) and remove them. Besides, SpyHunter protects your PC from the net attacks. This is a good anti-malware, since it has got good threat data base, that updates everyday. SpyHunter has got free scanner, which you may see before on the banners, but it isn’t free at all, you can buy the full version for 39.99$.

    Features of SpyHunter 4:

    • Large threat’s database;
    • Detecting harmful registry keys;
    • Erasing harmful leftover items;
    • Doesn’t reduce computer performance;
    • Doesn’t conflict with other anti-malware;
    • Friendly Interface.

    Well, this product has the biggest cost, but quality is really good. So ratio quality to price is high.

  3. Stronghold AntiMalware

  4. The next one is Stronghold AntiMalware, which was developed by Security Stronghold. As SpyHunter, Stronghold AntiMalware mostly focuses on removal of spyware and adware. In addition, it can reset browsers settings or remove malicious browser’s extensions and add-ons. It scans not only hard disk, but registry and processes too. This anti-malware doesn’t slow your PC, even you running applications. The cost of 1 copy is 29.95$. Here you can see features:

    • Doesn’t reduce computer performance thanks to Passive Defense Approach;
    • Toolbar removal;
    • Search engine and Homepage resetting;
    • Simple and friendly interface;

    Stronghold AntiMalware program is pretty good product, it still has less database then SpyHunter, but has good protection and removals. So this has ratio quality to cost is a high.

  5. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

  6. Another strong anti-malware program is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. This product has been created by Malwarebytes. Like other two anti-malware programs it has good threat’s database, real-time protection and scanner, that can find adware, spyware and delete them. But still Malwarebytes mainly focuses on viruses and trojans. Over this, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is cheaper then Stronghold Anti-malware and SpyHunter, it costs 24.95$ for 3 copies., there is why it’s popular anti-malware too.

    • Antivirus compatibility;

  7. Hitman Pro

  8. Hitman Pro has been developed by SurfRight. HitmanPro is a good scanner, called a “Second Opinion” scanner. It has good database, but doesn’t have any protection. So threats can infect user’s PC, but will be killed by HitmanPro after next scan. Not so good, but not so bad, you can install any protection system with HitmanPro. It would be a nice combo. The price of HitmanPro is 24.95$.

    Features of HitmanPro:

    • Good threat’s database;
    • Doesn’t reduce computer performance;
    • Antivirus compatibility.

    HitmanPro is like a weapon, but you need a shield. So it’s a good choice to have HitmanPro with Protection program on your PC. Ratio quality to cost – good.

  9. AdwCleaner

  10. And the last one is AdwCleaner. Another scanner, that needs a protection, was created by Xplode. It has a very simple interface. AdwCleaner can find adwares and spywares too. If you accept the removing threats, program starts removing, but after will reboot your PC, you can’t prevent it, so just wait. And it is for free!

    Features of AdwCleaner:

    • Good threat’s database;
    • Very simple interface;
    • Antivirus compatibility;
    • Freeware.

    The good choice for scanning and delete program after, but still useless as protection. You can keep it, if your friend’s PC is infected by unknown threat, you can easily install AdwCleaner and scan in short time. Good ratio quality to price.

Conclusion

What we have? Five top anti-malware programs, with their own features. If you want to know my choice, here it is. I prefer to use SpyHunter 4 or Stronghold Anti-malware, because of their large databases and protection. Both of them have good website, where it is easy to navigate. And there are good supports too. Those programs are not cheap, but worth it!

  1. SpyHunter 4 is free unless you wish to utilize certain features such as the malware removal after the quick scan. I used the free trial to highlight threats on my computer, which I manually removed.
