Malwarebytes Anti-Malware’s New Look

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has a spiffy new look. Version 2.1.4.1018 has just been released and besides sporting a cleaner, modern look, it also has a few upgrades that may not be obvious at first. For example, the new version has improved root-kit detection and removal. It also automatically updates before running a scan so that you have the latest protection database when scanning. A bug with the next scheduled scan not showing up properly has also been fixed, along with several notification issues.

Keeping Software Updated is Important

Just as it's important to visit Windows Updates on a regular basis or have Automatic Updates enabled, it's also necessary to run the latest versions of software to ensure that your PC is protected. Of particular importance is always running the latest versions of Flash Player, Java, Adobe Reader and QuickTime. They have all experienced vulnerabilities in the past that have allowed PCs to become compromised while running the vulnerable versions.

Your computer is constantly at risk from malware such as Viruses, Trojans, Spyware and more. Anti-Virus software keeps Viruses and many Trojans at bay, but there are a slew of other baddies out there.
