Northern Compass has recommended and used Malwarebytes thousands of times over the years.
The gold standard in Malware Detection
Malwarebytes does an AMAZING job at detecting malware on PCs and removing it. If Malwarebytes cannot see or remove a malicious program/threat on your PC, it may be time to consider restoring from a backup.
PROFESSIONAL TIP: Sometimes when you get a virus it can block the installation of removal tools. You want to have Malwarebytes installed BEFORE you need it. It will not be a matter of “if” Malwarebytes will save/fix your computer…but a matter of “when”.
