Both Malwarebytes and McAfee are well-known in the antivirus industry. They each use a combination of signature scanning and heuristic behavioral monitoring to find malware. They also come with unique sets of additional features. Malwarebytes allows for high levels of customization. There are advanced scheduling options for scans, as well as a custom application-level scanner to target suspected threats. You also get web protection without an extra browser extension and protocols for rootkits. The company’s “Bug Bounty” program enters you into a cash drawing if you report an issue. There are also tools for beginners, including pop-up guidance for each threat and an integrated support tool. McAfee offers comprehensive protection with minimal system slowdown. You get an anti-phishing browser extension, a firewall, and social media protection to keep you safe on networking sites. Your subscription can be used on unlimited devices, and the Security Management Console allows you to see, locate, and wipe them all remotely. The PC tune-up tool deletes unnecessary, duplicate, and corrupted files and logs. There’s also a digital file shredder to protect your trashed items from being intercepted by hackers.

Easy to use, does not affect the performance of your computer. The licensing form is not easy to understand.
