You can use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. It is designed to be used in combination with an antivirus application.

Hi ,

Always use only one Security Software on Devices .

Do not need malwarebyte , Trend Micro is enough .

I use the free version, it's good removing PUP's (potentially unwanted program) that TM wont remove because you have installed it yourself (unintentionally).

Hi Jhja,

You must put in Options the slider to off (start with windows)
The only thing PUP's is that he detect 2 other free program's on my PC Auslogic diskdefrag and Free Slimware Driver update.
I use those program's for years now!

Kind regards,
Tom

Hi Tom
I don't know those programs, but a fast googling showed me it isn't without reason Malwarebytes removed them.

And i see no alarms on the internet!

Kind regards,
Tom

Hi Jhja,

Sorry, i use these program's for years now and i don't tel you that you must use them, Both programs are there for years and still get updated regular.
So i dont want a other free program that says that it is not right, also Auslogic Boost Speed is usable program, i dont use it but i have tested it and that is what i always do, so i start also with TM.
So, i use TM for all my defense and test all kind of program's and if they are useful i use them. But i dont want 2 program's on my PC that does the same tings and for virus and malware scanners i use 1, and just test some others.

Kind regards,
Tom

Kind regards,

@Tom Emmelot: Say for example, we have the Trend Micro and i install the premium version of MBAM 3.0 will there be any issue(s). When you go to the security center it displays that windows detected two or more antivirus are running. I am guessing that running MBAM 3.0 (free version) won't display that in the security center.

Hi ahsans,

The free version is not in the windows detection and if you exit it (not start with windows) there is no problem to run scans with it.
But the pro version is also like TM doing a real-time scan and i advice to run 1 real-time scanner on the PC at the time.

Kind regards,
Tom
