IObit Malware Fighter is a powerful, advanced malware & spyware removal utility that detects, removes the deepest infections, and protects your PC from various potential spyware, adware, trojans, keyloggers, bots, worms, and hijackers, in real-time.
The app utilizes the world-leading Bitdefender antivirus engine, IObit Anti-malware engine, and Anti-ransomware Engine. With these tools, IObit Malware Fighter is able to detect the most complex spyware and malware in a very fast and efficient way.
IObit Malware Fighter is an effective anti-malware tool that has a simple, yet pleasing interface that is well designed. The main window consists of four basic options like Scan, Protect, Update, and Action Center. The app’s other settings and features are mainly hidden and live in the settings panel to the right. The rest of the window is crisp and clean with scanning settings and options that are displayed as on/off switches.
The new Safe Box and the improved Anti-ransomware Engine double protect your PC from the latest ransomware attacks. Besides, MBR Guard is added to protect your PC against the malicious attacks targeting MBR, like GoldenEye/Petya attacks. Another noteworthy feature is the Notification Center that offers a 1-click solution to view and manage all important messages.
During testing, IObit Malware Fighter made no claims of false positives upon detecting the usual temp files cached in the browser. The scan speeds were decent considering drive size and file structure. One notable downside is the app classifies the absence of Advanced SystemCare and Smart Defrag as ‘problems.’ This wouldn’t be too bad in itself, however, there is no option to clear these warnings and upon ‘fixing’ them an automatic download and installation of IObit’s other apps occurred. Despite IObit’s shameless self publicizing, if you need an easy-to-use, lightweight malware scanner, then Malware Fighter is a good choice.
