No Moola Malware, Anti-Virus Protection: 10 Free Security Tools That Actually Work
Andrew R. Hickey
Malwarebytes is the go-to free security tool. We even know of a few IT departments that recommend it (though they probably won't admit that publicly). The free anti-malware tool is quick and rarely throws out false positives. It scans all files and drives and once infected files are identified enables users to remove them. There's a paid version with added protection, but if a quick scan and malware removal is all you're after and you're short on cash, it's a nice tool to have.
