Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has been a long time favorite among the TechSpot staff and security experts everywhere. The program's ability for spotting and eliminating malware that can be overlooked by traditional antivirus software has earned its well deserved reputation. Best of all, it's free for personal use (paid version adds real-time monitoring).
Malwarebytes started its life as a company in 2004 as a one-man operation, but it wasn’t until four years later that its star product was released, simply called 'Anti-Malware'. Since then the company has rapidly grown to establish itself as a serious player in the computer security industry.
We recently had the chance to chat with founder and CEO Marcin Kleczynski about the firm’s early days, the evolution of malware, his views on the industry, and more.
