Top 5 Anti-Malware programs for Windows

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, adware, spyware 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 viruses, trojans, crypts. Here you can find out more about the best antiviruses. Anti-malware programs are more suitable for such types of threats as adware, browser hijacker, 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.

Initially, the free version allows you one remediation and removal for results found subject to a 48-hour waiting period. To remove these restrictions, you will have to pay $ 42 – 6 months of subscription.

US $39.99/ 6 MONTHS

Download WiperSoft

 

 

OS: Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10 | For: 1 device | Distinctive Features: Custom Fix feature for specific threats removal.

The first one will be Wipersoft. This product has been created by Norton LLC in 2015. Like the other two anti-malware programs it has a good threat database, real-time protection, and scanner, that can find adware, spyware and delete them. But still, Norton mainly focuses on viruses and trojans. There are free and paid versions of the Wipersoft. The free version allows users to scan the system for malicious threats, however, their removal, as well as free customer support and custom fix are available only in the paid version.

Pros
  • Huge threat’s database;
  • Doesn’t reduce computer performance;
  • Friendly interface;

Hitman Pro

US $24.95

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$.

Pros
  • Good threat’s database;
  • Doesn’t reduce computer performance;

  • Price;

Conclusion

I prefer to use SpyHunter, Wipersoft or Malwarebytes, because of their large databases and protection. Both of them have a good website, where it is easy to navigate. And there are good supports too. Those programs are not cheap, but worth it!
