Protecting yourself on the Internet isn't an easy task - every site on the planet these days seems to want to install something nasty on your PC, which is why when it comes to security, I always recommend that users looking for great protection grab themselves Malwarebytes. This technology is typically recommended by a number of geeks around the world that are pretty experienced in the world of PC security and for my money, the lack of intrusive behaviour, general ease of use and quality of the anti-malware procedures are what make this a hell of a lot better than the competition.
Malwarebytes protects you from some threats that standard antivirus programs don't, which is why it's so important to at least have one type of program in this category to protect you. I actually only run the free version of Malwarebytes but if you want to upgrade to a premium version, you can do so to receive faster scans, automatic malicious site blocking and the ability to use a Chameleon technology to even see whether your computer is running counter protections. All in all, this is great software everyone should have. Fast, free and simple.
