In truth, there’s a big difference. You can purchase the tune-up utility once and use it for as long as you like, paying again only if you upgrade to a more advanced version. Given the need for constant vigilance and antivirus updates, the subscription model does make sense. IObit’s pricing is in line with competing products.
Avoid these 5 tech things that are a total waste of money
Posted by: Robert Hall 10 May I have an ongoing forever Pro license and it seems to have just updated without any email to me, ver. I wonder why or is this something else, an update only of Pro? I bought lifetime sub with SAS so stick with it. SAS updates daily sometimes more than once and also sub covers my lap top. Isnt that what we all did way back anyway, had 2nd checker on boot? I’ll just stick with my Bitdefender program.
It runs quietly in the background and the free 14 day “trail” of Malwarebytes 3. Jon 13 May I have used malwarebytes premium in the past but now only use the free one because there are 6 computers in this household. I cannot afford to use any paid for program that does not allow for at least installation on 3 computers.
I will not be using MBAM as long as this petty fault remains: I uninstalled this new version immediately! The only paid version today is the Premium version and it is a yearly paid program.
MBAM is an excellent company for honoring their Lifetime protection when they offered it – Even though there is now the Premium paid yearly version. For me, it has been hard to understand why MBAM went to a yearly subscription. The only reason I can think of – It is costly to continuously update the data for your PC or Laptop’s protection.
Again, they have made the Mobile version a free version – Why isn’t there a paid version??? I also have Avast on my phone. I am fully aware of the security issues that comes with using an Android Smartphone. Started having lots of issues when 3. Aggressive false positives with no trace of the activity in the logs, etc.
There are some long blogs on all the issues people have gone through with the many rapid iterations of 3. I have unhappily given up after several go-rounds similar to the ones above with the lightweight tech support although it sounds as if they are being slammed on tech support right now. I lucked into the deal about three years ago. My husband, who has a habit of going places by being a link clicker fanatic, even though he knows to mouse over a link first, has had his computer saved about times, now.
I know many people don’t like the “Web Site Block”, feature but if you understand how hackers can easily access a port on your computer by having you connect outbound and then, the bad guys travel back to you, via the “channel” you just made them, it’s a nifty tool. Also, you can easily do an “exclude” list. It’s really simple to use and setup so you can’t complain about that part. However, it does take up quite a bit of resources, so as long as you have fast loading processes and room, it’s well worth running it from startup to shutdown.
You can also “Quit” it by a simple right click. I also believe it is working and improving to be probably one of the top antiviruses’ programs in the year or two ahead. In the end, its cost effectiveness will also bring a great ROI! So, although I don’t work for MBAM or know anyone who does, this is one program I will continue to plug-“The force” and fierceness is with it and you are at the command.
Lady Fitzgerald 07 Jun I have four lifetime licenses I bought several years ago three are in use. I delayed upgrading to V3. I had to manually download the latest version after allowing the automatically downloaded version to install but after a few minor problems getting all the protections running, it has been doing great.
I’m also using Avast Free. I haven’t upgraded my notebooks yet I only use them when I travel and I’m not going anywhere soon so I’m in no rush. There’s more reader feedback See all 36 comments for this article.
