This anti-malware acts in real time, with the advantage that is compatible with any antivirus (Avast, AVG, etc.), so they can do it concurrently, complementing to detect and remove suspicious behavior not detected by the other software when A file is downloaded or when you are browsing. In particular, this tool may be able to detect complex variants of hijackers, bots or keyloggers.
Like other products of this company, Malware Fighter uses its service called IObit Cloud to send queries about the possible danger that any file may represent. In addition to having previously used several protection shields, it causes the system to increase its alertness and its level of security.
A virtue to emphasize is that it does not consume excessive resources during its execution in the background. Another virtue has to do with its interface and ease of use compared to other similar tools also free, such as SpyBot.
Real-time protection warns against possible attempts to change the system, and also monitors activities related to the network, processes, cookies, changes in the browser, and when connecting devices through a port USB.
After installing this application it is recommended to do a complete scan of the system to discard any anomaly not detected in time, and then do so periodically as with the antivirus.
IObit Malware Fighter 2 Free has been updated to version 2.4.1. It works with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. It can be downloaded for free, but there is a Pro Edition with more features, which can be migrated at any time after buying a license.
A similar anti - spyware, which enjoys very good reputation (and earned top scores it) is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which in its free version does not offer real - time protection, but can be installed if only you want to analyze System from time to time.
