IObit Malware Fighter Editor's Review

With time, the technology used in mainstream and niche software keeps evolving and so does the technology used to develop myriads of malicious apps and computer virus. There was a time when you could rely on industry leading Antivirus apps for PC security. Nowadays, news like a Facebook worm attacking millions of computers or a malware activating on a specific day keeps flashing frequently. That is why advanced users may feel like adding an additional layer of protection on top of the standard PC security app. There are both free and paid malware apps for such users and IObit Malware Fighter is one such contender.

IObit Malware Fighter supports many languages apart from English like Dutch, French, and Korean etc. The installation is straightforward but there is a glitch. The Free version installer comes with a bloatware toolbar and if you accept it, the web browsing experience may change. Besides, the way this button is presented that may make users think they have no choice than accepting it. Upon clicking on accept button, the toolbar gets installed, and default homepage and search engine in the PC’s web browsers gets changed. Not many users will like this, for sure.

As far as appearance is concerned, very few security software manages to look as sleek and attractive as IObit Malware Fighter. The cool slate-grey background can be made transparent as per your liking. The large buttons reflect a typical Windows 8look. This also makes the app compatible with touch screen devices. The app prompts users to update its heuristics engine upon installation completion. Thereafter, the app will perform a smart scan process. However, its real time protection kicks into action only when malware activity is detected.

When it comes to sheer malware detection and removal performance, IObit Malware Fighter loses out to leading antivirus and system security tools by a fair margin. It fails to clean some malware and a few can even evade its scanning. However, the app offers the option to send a file to cloud network of IObit. The Performance section of the app is not much useful as it prompts users to install other software of the company.

Positive Points:
 -  Sleek Interface, gels well with Windows 8.
 -  Cloud malware analysis for unresolved malware issues.
 -  Multilingual support.

Negative Points:
 -  Bloatware included with installer.
 -  Mediocre malware detection and removal.
 -  Real time protection less than adequate.
 -  Performance section is more of a gimmick.
 -  No shield for malicious downloads .

Conclusion:
IObit has revamped the look of the application thoroughly and it gels nicely with Windows 8 based systems. However, there are not many reasons to recommend the app at least for truly security conscious users. It falters on malware detection and elimination to an extent when compared to rival apps. You cannot count on it for all round system protection. However, for very basic protection, it is good enough.

Rating: 2.5/5
