Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is one of the simplest programs that detects and protects viruses, spyware, trojans, worm and other dangerous files and proves to be very useful, especially when used with your regular antivirus
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware works by monitoring the processes of the system, which they identify as malicious before they run. The program has two scan modes, it will be shallow and another deep, more thorough, scan that will take more time but instead will prove more faithful. Plus, it comes with a memory protection module that uses quarantine lists to check the suspicious elements as well as to use memory from a potentially dangerous process.
In addition to all this, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware also has fewer options, such as file-assassin (to increase the files blocked by Windows) that may be helpful when trying to rid malware after detecting it.
