I don't user either one of them anymore. Gave up on PC Pitstop ages ago, but it was interesting learning that they're the ones making PCMatic (who by the way have a TV commercial in the U.S.A.) albeit I'll never use it.

I've not used PC Pitstop in years. Used to regularly use their pitstop scan thing, was signed up to their newsletter, regular on their forum, but the scanner and articles turned to s*** and they're just constantly pushing their crappy software. Unsubbed from their newsletter recently too as they're obsessed with trying to make ransomware the worlds scariest thing every single week

Ooh, some of them answers are a bit whiffy :rolleyes:

Ongoing thread on BleepingComputer about this.

 

It didn't help that using their PCmatic SuperShield  an AV Comparatives test showed PCPitstop had better detection results than Malwarebytes (scroll down slightly for Oct detection rates)

Seems they've kissed and made up ^_^https://techtalk.pcpitstop.com/2017/01/10/malwarebytes-removes-pc-matic-pua-categorization/

And on a side note, seeing this all flare up I thought I'd see what the PC Pitstop scan was like now (having been a regular user for a long time years back). I think we can safely say they've abandoned it lol, don't think it's changed since I last used it a few years ago. Told me I had to defrag my drive (that's my SSD drive!), and apparently I only have two processes running on my whole computer!!! I knew I ran a lean machine, but that was news to me :lol:

Two processes is so bloated, I'd shoot for just one process. :lol:

I think it was you Hazelnut that first clued me into it, then I forgot all about it only to rediscover it again via a YouTube reviewer using it in a test to eliminate malware.

If for whatever reason someone has issues using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (I certainly do, it doesn't work correctly on my system anymore without having serious buggy issues) give Zemana AntiMalware a try.

I'm sticking with MBAMv2 until they get the issues with v3 sorted out.

 

They should never have put v3 on General Release as it is, IMO it's still a Beta version and is losing them customers.

 

I hadn't heard of Zemana, I'll give it a look.
