Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free
Malware detection and removal software but the free version doesn't offer real time protection
Pros & Cons:
Malwarebytes is a malware detection and removal software. When the program first installs, it will ask you if you want to update to the free Pro trial, update definitions and launch the program. I selected to update the definitions and launch the program.
The program launched with a configuration menu providing the options to perform a quick scan or full scan. I performed the quick scan which surprisingly detected 7 malware files the previous programs failed to recognize.
Unfortunately the free version doesn't offer real time protection. Updating definitions is a good feature, and quarantined files can be manually deleted. A history of the logs is kept in an easily accessible history.
There are several options for configuring how the program scans but scheduling isn't one of them. Rootkit scanning requires a separate file download.
