Why Malwarebytes is a bad joke! BOYCOTT MALWAREBYTES!

We just bought one of those new - super thin, fast laptops and needed to install anti-virus, anti-malware software.

Malwarebytes' Consumer Fraud


We made the mistake of contacting Malwarebytes.

Oh, God - what a joke! What a fraud!

We paid them around 55 bucks to install it.

They said -- sure -- we'll cash your Visa monies and, no problem.

Then the nightmare began.

We did everything they instructed us to do - and  - strangely - it didn't work.

When we emailed them back - we were given the following excuse:


Hello,

Saturday 1/27 we had an issue with one of our database updates causing issues with our web protection.

Now if Malwarebytes has screwed up their computer system - or been hacked - would you want to trust them to protect your computer?

What a massive fraud on American consumers!

We cancelled the VISA payment and advise everybody to avoid Malwarebytes - at all costs
