Teclane Review: If your computer is infected with malware that antivirus program cannot detect, you can use Malwarebytes anti-malware software which can detect and remove malware from your computer. It is very popular and well known anti-malware software made by Malwarebytes Corporation. Both Free and paid version are available in the Malwarebytes website to download. Free version scans and remove malware when you run manually but it is not capable to protect any upcoming malware attack as Malwarebytes Pro version does.

Malwarebytes is not an anti-virus software and it cannot remove viruses. Malware is the form of worms, trojan horses, spyware etc that antivirus software may misses but anti-malware software finds and removes from the infected computer.

Can I use Malwarebytes with Antivirus software?
Malwarebytes is designed to comply with antivirus software to run independently and not to conflict as running tow security software at the same time.
