IObit Malware Fighter v4.2 Review
- Easy to install and simple to use user interface.
- Lacks independent labs test.
- Not equally reliable as compared to its top competitors.
- Bad protection on blocking malicious links.
IObit Malware Fighter consists of various amount of tools to detect and remove sophisticated threats hidden inside a system. It provides real-time protection against latest threats in an efficient manner. It has improved its user interface on v4.2 to provide maximum ease on its use along with huge amount of features.
IObit Malware Fighter is basically an anti-malware software that cleans up Adware, spyware, Trojans and other malicious programs running on PC. It consists of different scanning options such as Smart scan that checks for possible threats on critical areas of system and runs automatically on when PC is idle. Smart scan is useful to get the job done quickly while custom scan is a user on demand scanner that scans on selected areas of system. Real-time protection blocks threats on process and before they enter in the system with added feature of online and web protection.
To go straight forward on our test, it missed few real time threats and prompt false warning for legit program. The online browsing protection also did not meet our expectation as there was false positives although phishing protection was considerable. Full system scan was somewhat taking longer than we expected.
Based on our test, we can conclude it to be average protection on PC and cannot be used as replacement of other high performance antivirus software such as Norton, Bitdefender, Kaspersky and others but could be used as substitute to them. Our test made everything clear about its protection and performance that it works well with other antivirus or internet security software installed on the system.
Help and support are available if you are Pro users. Note that free version is also available which does the job at no cost. If you need technical support, Pro version is available on $19.95 per year regardless to the giveaway we brought for you here.
Besides, there are lots of improvement that we can see on its latest version such as improved accuracy and huge amount of signature database, bug fixed and support for different other languages than English.
