iobit malware fighter review 2019

“Your PC has never been scanned” is the first greeting message in Malware Fighter. And you can run smart (fast) scanning right away - click the Scan Now button. To initiate protection, turn on/off 2 guard modes: Anti-ransomware Engine and Bitdefender Engine at the bottom of the screen. Both are available in Pro version only. For settings, go to Options in the upper right corner.

iobit malware fighter review free

After all set up, head to Scan tab in the left menu and select one of three scanning types: Smart Scan, Full Scan, or Custom Scan.Smartscan is for quick system check aimed to detect virus files and errors. Full scan implies holistic, deep and precise system scanning and it will usually take quite some time. A third one,Customscan is a selective check - choose certain system areas to scan separately.

We’ll see how all of those scan types perform infewmoments, but now let’s see what else is under the hood. IObit Malware Fighter Pro review wouldn’t befull,if we hadn’t talked about its real-time protection tool. So, Real-time protection mode is in place to monitor startup programs, browser activities, web pagesandfiles a user opens. If we take a jab at famous US police slogan “To serve and protect”, IMF’s motto would then be “To detect and remove”.

Anti-ransomware aspect adds up to that purpose, detectingspyware /malware/ adware. Surfing protection is the next tool in line aiming to prevent access to malicious or suspicious URLs. Key tools here are anti-tracking, download guard, DNS protection, plugin/toolbar cleaner, ad block. Malware Fighter v.6.5.0 contains the ever growing database of identified threats and sources, counting over 2 million.

By heading to Ransomware Guard tab, you have access to anti-ransomware engine and Safe Box modes - both available only in Pro. Safe Box isthe specialoption/tool to protect certain folders from unauthorized access.

iobit malware fighter review free

Next up, we have the Security Guard tab, to monitor several types of activities onuser’sPC or laptop:

  1. Network Guard - blocks web pages that may contain threats.
  2. MBR Guard - against cryptographic attacks targeting MBR (master boot record), e.g. GoldenEye or Petya malware.
  3. File Guard - scans incoming unknown files.
  4. Camera Guard - protectscamerafrom unauthorized access.
  5. Startup Guard - against unauthorized programs trying to run at startup (only in Pro).
  6. USB Disk Guard - scans USB drives for viruses.
  7. Process Guard - detects malicious processes impacting RAM.
  8. Malicious Action - analyzes and identifies malicious actions.

iobit malware fighter review

The last Action Center tab focuses on system optimization, including tools like defragmentation, backups, uninstaller, etc. Overall, the interface of Malware Fighter Pro is up to date, visually appealing and easy to navigate. It has a dark background with red and green elements - distinguishing areas that are protected from those that are not. All features and tools are divided into different tabs.

To uninstall IMF on Windows 8 or earlier versions:

  1. Open Start menu and select Control Panel
  2. Click Uninstall a program
  3. Locate IObit Malware Fighter 6 and select Uninstall
  4. Follow on-screen prompts
  5. Restart PC to complete program removal

To uninstall IMF on Windows 10:

  1. Open Start menu and click on Settings
  2. Select System or Apps in Settings, select “Programs and Features” or “Apps and Features” from the left panel
  3. Locate IObit Malware Fighter 6 and select Uninstall
  4. Follow on-screen prompts
  5. Restart PC to complete program removal

We tested Malware Fighter on a standard Windows 10 PC with 16GB RAM. First, we ran all three scans. With Smart scanning that lasted about 5 minutes, the program found 3 threats - all identified as “trojan generic” type.Numberof objects checked: 73,570.

iobit malware fighter smart scan

Full scanning took 1 hour and 21 minutes, went through 781,807 files, and identified 6 threats, again all Trojan type. We should note, all of those threats were related to Adobe products, which is somewhat strange.

iobit malware fighter full scan test

For Customscanningwe chose the 1 TB hard drive with 40,000 files in it. It found 3 threats (a screenshot making app along with Adobe, again), but more strikingly the process lasted 49 seconds - which we can neither explain nor apprehend.

iobit malware fighter custom scan

Nevertheless, we also checked the impact on PC resources. With few programs running (Chrome, IMF, Windows Explorer, Adobe Acrobat, Task manager), CPU load was at 51%. Out of that, Malware Fighter’s part was 23,8% and 115 MB of memory. Is it a lot or not - it depends.

iobit malware fighter review

Finally, during our 5-day use of this anti-malware program by IObit, we’ve also got some mixed signals regarding real-time protection capabilities. On one hand, it successfully detected some malware files (see the left part ofscreenbelow), while on the other hand, it wasn’t much efficient against malware-hosting URLs - it did not prevent access to those,insteadmarking them as safe (see the right part ofscreenbelow).

iobit malware fighter review

IObit offers a free version of Malware Fighter, however, it is limited in functionality. Modules like Anti-tracking, Camera Guard, USB Disk Guard, Auto scan, etc. are available in Pro version only. You can buy the program for $19.95 as a one-year subscription for one PC. Curiously enough, there is no trial of full-featured version, so users have to rely on a free Malware Fighter version, butgoodnews is there’s a 60-day money-back assurance from the vendor. Although, be sure to read Refund policy carefully, if you want to count on that.

iobit malware fighter pricing

Name of product Pros

  • Three scan modes
  • Free version with basic features
  • Rich functionality in Pro version
  • User-friendly interface, many languages
  • Regular database updates

Name of product Cons

  • Free version offers very little
  • Ads of other products by IObit
  • Only 1-year pricing that has to be renewed later
  • No mobile app

IMF performs well, not loading a PC too much even while scanning. It offers lots of tools to safeguard your web activity, as well as protect against ransomware. There’s also a scheduling feature in Pro version. It does not cut across with other antivirus software, yet we wouldn’t bet on it as your main antivirus/antimalware protection. There are goods and bads, as in any other case, e.g. fast scan omits hard drives save for the one that hosts user’s operating system, yet there are various useful tools overall. So we leave to customers to decide, and we’ll also name few alternatives to be aware of.

  1. Kaspersky Antivirus - 4 antivirus types of different protection tiers from $50 to $90, as well as a free version;
  2. Bitdefender Antivirus - this vendor’s database is in use by many other antivirus software, it has both free and $35 versions;
  3. AVG Antivirus - a powerful security program, free and $80 versions;
  4. Avast Antivirus - a trusted antivirus that stands the test of time, $60 price;
  5. Malwarebytes - a special type of anti-malware for $40, which co-exists nicely with any antivirus software.

    Best virus detector by far in my experience

    I'll never pay for it. It's good for removing tracking cookies and it's really good at detecting programs sneakily setting themselves on autostart, like my browser does every couple of days. I believe you get the latter function on the free version.

    Great download software to fight malware on your computer

    I am thoroughly impressed with this tool. I have tried a lot of so called free malware fighters only to learn you get a piece of junk that causes more problems than it fixes or it contains a hoard of advertising and other tool bars that take over you PC. This on the other hand is FREE and is FREE of any of the a for mentioned issues. The gimmick is that they want you to upgrade to their professional version which isn't too much but if you were to buy all of the other componets of the IObit Software family you will spend a lot.

    IOBit Malware fighter process. Completely safe if original.

    The file is from Iobit malware fighter v4.4 It ask me to change my browser settings. I think the file is legit/real and that it install some kind of protection in my browser and not harmfull, but I have a little doubt if this free malware security is spying on me. ( who knows there is a reason it is free right) - I dont know what to belive, it is quite common free software example monitor your surfing on internet to show commmercials.

    Excellent tool for getting rid of spyware and malwares. It secures my internet banking log ins and online payments.

    I am very pleased with all of the IObit Suite's Softwares, I find IObit Malware Fighter to be the top of the line for Catching Malware & Viruses that MalwareBytes failed to catch. The interface is simple, Easy to navigate. The app is fast and uses very few system resources. I have gotten my close relatives and friends to try the app, Including most of them switching to IObit malware fighter as their main Anti-Virus service. Fablous job Iobit.

    Worth a try.. Low on resources. I haven't found it intrusive, nor overly aggressive. It has a nice interface that keeps things simple for the average user.

    Very efficient antivirus tool

    I was surprised at how this software is actually better than Malwarebytes. To be honest, I've read quite a handful of bad reviews against IObit Malware Fighter but I still thought of giving it a try. And, I must say that I am not regretting my decision as this software gives an efficient detection rate and it carefully prevents and remove unwanted and destructive software.

    Good antivirus, worth getting the product key to activate it

    Words can't perfectly describe how good this product is. In fact, I actually bought the iobit malware fighter pro because I am beyond satisfied with the protection it gives to my computer system. Surely, worthy to buy! Although, the free basic anti-malware function is enough to give your pc a protection against malicious behavior but if you need a more advanced and improved protection, iobit malware fighter pro version is the key!

    A great protection against Malware

    Firstly i'd like to say how nice and clean it looks, i love the minimalistic look of the new version, it is easy to understand, and almost does everything for you! it feels a lot nicer, with new protections like MBR guard, fighting against the latest malware which i love as need to be protected against the latest viruses. Thankyou for keeping the bitdefender engine, i do like the option to have it. My only bad reaction would be that from a consumer view it does look very similar to version 5 which might make the new update seem redundant to some users.

    Hello to everyone. I have a few words to tell you. They are based on my experience. I started using IOBit Malware Fighter a long time ago and I could watch how it developed.

    Malware Fighter removed my antivirus during installation

    I have installed Fighter because want to try it and there are features I like about it. In my opinion, the interface is too minimalistic. Also, I wanted to compare Malware Fighter with Malwarebytes (I started using Malwarebytes a few years ago). And I couldn`t do that. After installing IObit I can`t find Malwarebytes ... As I understand it, Malware Fighter removed my antivirus during installation. I wonder who else had this problem?

    I started using IOBit Malware Fighter a long time ago.I  like IOBit Malware Fighter.

Great prices offer for 5PCS license. One thing I want to tell you, IOBit Malware Fighter haven't found it intrusive, nor overly aggressive against other software including other Malware Fighter. Even though your software license expired (prior re-new) they will not aggressive and not become a ransom ware as same as other product. Always provide good offer prices.

    • Pros
      • Ease of Use simple for the average user
      • Great prices offer for 5PCS license
      • No aggressive against other software including other Malware Fighter

    It is good malware program and it is free

    I've been using IObit software for years, and only paid because I wanted to. Most importantly, IObit NEVER requires payment for their products to work. The free versions are free, and work just fine without a subscription. Yes, you will be prompted to buy a subscription when executing the software, but only need to 'x out' of the offer to run the scanner(s). Secondly, I have never had IObit Malware Fighter behave like malware. I do think that when I updated ASC recently it did install an online backup software, but all I had to do was uninstall it. Easy as that. Let me be clear, this was legitimate backup software, and was not malicious.
    • Pros
      • Easy to use and intuitive

      • Full scanning is quite lengthy

    Finds Malware hidden all over your computer, I know a lot about computers and this programme really surprized me, its worth the download and getting the pro key for that little bit extra.

    Strong removal tool

    I used it to remove a program that nothing else could remove it, I have an A+ certification in computer, and I cloned a SSD but the original hard drive had a un-removable program that I just wouldn't move and didn't appear in the registry and I really didn't want to do a clean install. The 10 Bit Malware remove it in a matter of minutes. I have another Malware fighter on board and so far they don't seem to be fighting each other, it's been a few weeks now. It cleans everything on your computer, start ups defrags, unused programs, un-needed histories. It does everything I use to do manually.
    • Pros
      • Effective anti-ransomware shield
    • Cons
      • No scores from the major testing labs

    Fast Download and Good Malware Cleaner

    I use Advanced System Care on 5 PCs and 3 Android platforms. Part of that is the Malware fighter and the Driver Booster as well as an Uninstaller and a Defrag tool. All are excellent and I have been sharing my appreciation with all my friends, many of whom have adopted the software. Even the free version works very well and should be tried.
    • Pros
      • Lots of features
    • Cons
      • Real-time detection issues

    IObit Malware Fighter Pro looks good and offers a host of security features

    As a local houston it tech i work on local computers here, residential and businesses. I clean a lot of malware fix computers with bugs as my bread and butter. So i've tried a lot of programs and i see a lot of malicious programming. i also frequently research programs and companies. MF can clean some stuff! The ransomware protection engine performs well, & in theory its Pro engine should do well too, its licensed from Bitdefender, a highly rated company. the free version only used IOBIT's own antivirus engine which isn't saying much. this could be a con actually. Clean new interface thats somewhat simple and easy to navigate thru.
    • Pros
      • Free version download available
    • Cons
      • Questionable real-time detection

    It did not bring me happiness

    I am a buyer of IOBit Malware Fighter. And it did not bring me happiness. I gave my money for the product, but there are still more products to purchase for better protection. I think... No, I am sure I will not renew the license when it expired. Now I understand why Malwarebytes perceives Malware Fighter as crapware. I will easily find a program that does not require updating parts of the program you have purchased.
    • Pros
      • Not bad protect.
    • Cons
      • The bought version requires to buy upgrading for better protection

    I am disappointed with version 5.

    It very disappointed me! No, not the program in general, but just the latest version (v.5). The previous version worked very well, but the new... I upgraded Malware Fighter to the new version and got a performance slowdown on my computer. In addition, it can sometimes increase CPU usage by up to 100%. I have this issue with v.5 only and never had with older versions. After that, I decided to do a clean install, cleared leftover files and the registry. But nothing could help me. So, I have installed previous version and wait for a new updated release. I have these problems in my two Windows.
    • Pros
      • The new version has not.
    • Cons
      • Performance slowdown with a v.5
      • 100% CPU usage
