Post by: Starbuck on January 03, 2017, 09:05:11 PM
Malwarebytes 3.0 combines the malware-fighting technology of — anti-malware, anti-ransomware, anti-exploit, and malicious website protection—into one program that scans 4x faster than previous versions of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

On installation the 14 day trial version will begin.
At the end of the 14 day trial, the program will switch to the free version. (and you will lose some of the functions)
Malwarebytes 3.0 Free will have the same capabilities as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free, but with a 3x to 4x scan speed improvement.

Although compatible with Win XP through to Win 10 ....The Anti-Ransomware technology is only enabled on Windows 7 or higher.
