IObit Malware Fighter 6.2
Keep your PC spyware-free

IObit Malware Fighter is a straightforward antispyware tool that can protect your PC in several different ways.

For example, you can run an on-demand scan to look for spyware, adware, trojans, bots, and other threats that your regular antivirus software might have missed. The "Smart Scan" checks only the most critical areas of your PC, and runs fairly quickly (around 7 minutes on our test PC); you can run a complete system scan if you prefer, while the "Custom Scan" allows you to choose exactly what you'd like the program to examine.

And Malware Fighter also includes real-time protection in the shape of 5 guards, which variously monitor your startup programs, browser settings, cookies, the web pages you view, and the files you access.

Our first brief tests left some questions over the program's accuracy, with Malware Fighter missing a real threat, and incorrectly warning us of two entirely safe files. And it's also a little short on features. If you want scheduled scans, protection for USB viruses, process scanning or technical support then you'll need to upgrade to Malware Fighter Pro, currently available for $19.95 a year.

Note that IObit Malware Fighter works as freeware unless you choose to upgrade to Pro.

Malware Fighter 6.2 brings these improvements:

+ Strengthened the protection against cryptocurrency mining such as Trojan.Miner.PowerGhost and Trojan.Miner.xmrig-proxy to avoid unexpected system slowdown caused by them.
+ Optimized MBR Guard for more stable protection.
+ Expanded database to remove the latest threats including the latest Hijacker.Clipboard, Trojan.Adylkuzz, and PowerGhost.
+ Fixed occasional registration failure.
+ Improved multi-language for better user experience.
+ Fixed known bugs.

Verdict:

While it's lightweight, fast and easy to use, IObit Malware Fighter is just a little too limited for our liking. There are better free antivirus tools around.

This information is not true.

This information is not true. Here is a much older version, if it is written.
This link is for v2.0.0.202, but latest is v2.0.0.204
That version, which is written here - not yet managed to find.

www.downloadcrew.com reply:

Hi Kaluju, the installer is v2.0.0.204, the actual build itself is 2.0.1.6. Confusing, we know. But it's up-to-date.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
