Last Customer Reviews: Scanguard vs Malwarebytes

Jim
I use the pro version because I have 3 devices to protect and its real nice discount, so I recommend this version of antivirus)
Leslie Ragsdale
As this Scanguard review mentions, I had some issues with this program. It works fine, but my Windows Defender notifies me about this program regularly. Nothing special, I guess, but it bothers me.
Mathew Ahart
Many other Scanguard reviews that I’ve read say that this is an established brand. You say it is a new company. I don’t understand.
Miles
Took 3 hours and didn't even get halfway through. Had to disable it with task manager and now it's not doing anything. Can't rate 0 stars so 1 will have to do.

I noticed this - I have full powered SSD WinX, good gfx card, fast PC, lots of ram (64gb).... But when Malwarebytes is started - system is slown down for maybe 30-40% (!). When I right-click on icon bottom right and DISABLE IT - immediately system speeds up to nearly normal. Just one more thing - disabling iCloudPhotos app (for iPhone) - also takes too much HD and CPU...

When Norton failed to protect me from a nasty virus that virtually wrecked my PC, It was suggested that Malwarebytes was capable of fixing the problem. So I downloaded the free version, and by the time it was finished it had found and quarantined multiple viruses, and my PC ran great! Now I run free MSE , good for basic coverage, and Malwarebytes Premium for the nasty new stuff always showing up. it has never let me down, even on a computer that is connecting to websites and using servers world wide. Plus it doesn't use excessive HD space, my machine runs top speed all the time even when scanning, 40 bucks a year for premium is well worth it, but I recommend you use it with MicroSoft Essentials.
