MalwareBytes Anti Exploit free software

I would welcome comments from Experts on this software.  Does it work? Any downsides?

It's worked very well for me in the past as it has helped with what anti virus programs wouldn't and what I didn't want to remove manually.  Just know that you do have to pay for a license if using it in a business environment.

I've use MalwareBytes on tons of infected PC's.  It generally works well but many times (as with all anti spyware apps) I use multiple applications to clean a PC. There have been many PC's I've seen where none of the apps would clean out a virus or spyware and I've had to perform a clean install. The more you would with infected systems, you will learn that if a system looks clean, it may not be totally clean and you have it back in the shop the next day again.  That's why I recommend a clean install if it's highly infected.

Other apps I've used are:

AdwCleaner http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/
Kaspersky TDSSKiller http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/
ESET online scanner http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/
Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-rootkit/

If you don’t have any Anti Virus installed, here are a few free ones to try:

Thanks.

Remember my question is about MalwareBytes Anti Exploit free--not MalwareBytes free, itself.

Is there any conflict with antivirus or other security programs?

I also use Makwarebytes AntiExploit on my desktop. I used it with Symantec Endpoint Protection and then moved to ESET antiVirus and never found a conflict with either one.

Hope this helps!

I've used MBAE and had no conflicts.  It seems to work well. I keep it in my software tool chest.
