Crypto-Prevent or Malwarebytes

Postby FredClaus » Tue Feb 05, 2019 10:39 pm

Malewarebytes has for years been my go to scan for malware removal in fact I still use it as part of D7x. If a client wants to buy the 40.00 license for Malwarebytes however, would I be correct in saying that CryptoPrevent can do the same thing for 15.00?

two different products, two different protection methods. Malwarebytes also of course is primarily (or was) for removal whereas CryptoPrevent doesn't remove anything. CryptoPrevent, though it does less, is a supplement which can be used in addition to Malwarebytes, but it can't replace it especially if you are looking for something to remove malware that might get on the system. CryptoPrevent is more of an "add-on" whereas Malwarebytes has evolved into more of a complete system, even though it doesn't do what CryptoPrevent does...
