Exterminate It - How Does It Rate?
This is a very effective Trojan, rootkit and spyware remover, known as one of the best on the market. However, this rating does come at a heftier price tag of about $50, and there is only a free trial version.
The program installs quickly and is extremely light. It usually completes in a matter of seconds and the free version has about 8,000,000 virus definitions. Still, its virus definition database is very large. Updates are available on a regular basis and the program allows developers to create new virus definitions for new viruses found in less than 24 hours.
Once installed you can immediately begin a scanning process which is also very fast - a scan runs through about 50 files per second. Real-time protection and daily updates keep any system fully protected, but also allow the user to run scans at any time you want. The one drawback to Exterminate It, is customer support, as answers to installation problems or other issues are slow.

Malwarebytes Antimalware Pro
Based on the 'free antivirus model,' this company offers a free option but encourages consumers to buy the more expensive Malwarebytes Antimalware Pro version for better protection. There are two paid Pro versions, the basic protection for $24.95 and a $59.85 cost for three licenses. The software includes extensive malware cleanup technology and real time protection, which offers constant protection against infections.
This company has one of the free malware software program with a quick installation and easy to use interface. The Pro version differs from the free program in that it offers real-time protection. But like the free version, it updates daily and users can use it to scan at any time. It even automatically corrects any changes to Windows made by malware or a virus. One of the greatest advantages to this antivirus program is that you only pay a one-time price for the Pro version, you need never pay the fee again for protection of the computer its used on.
The downside to malwarebytes Antimalware Pro is that the real-time protection doesn't score all that high. This feature doesn't block all the malicious URLs and the blocking log only brings up the IP addresses without further information on the blocked websites. Other than that the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro isn't all that different from the free version. It has the same cleanup and update process. The only difference, the real-time protection component, leaves users wanting just a bit more for their money.
Both Exterminate It and Malwarebytes Antimalware Pro are exceptional antivirus and malware removal programs. If security is an issue then this may be the best antiviral option, as Exterminate does have an extremely large antivirus database. You should just be aware that their customer service leaves something be desired. Malwarebytes Animalware Pro is also a very effective antivirus program but the Pro version is not all that different from the free.
