Purchasing Malwarebytes Pro - good idea or not?

Hello everyone - as per the question above, I am running Spybot Search & Destroy, Avast Antivirus Free and Spyware Blaster on my 2 PCs. I also use Malwarebytes Free on a weekly/fortnightly basis to scan for malware.

All has been working well, but I am thinking to go a step further and purchase the Pro version of Malwarebytes.

From reading round, I have found that it offers "real-time" protection that the free version doesn't do. Is there anything else that would persuade me to go down this route and purchase the Pro version?

Can I install the Pro version on both of my PCs?

Can I use a coupon code taken from the link below to purchase at a reduced price or not?

Grateful for any advice that you may all be able to provide.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

The free version is fine. All you get extra in the paid for version are auto updates and flash scans.

I would strongly advise getting the Pro Version of Malwarebytes. It is definitely better than the free version. I have upgraded to the Pro version after an attack while using the free version. Have had no problems since.

Thanks for your reply - please tell me what flash scans does?

Would the "real-time" protection interfere with the general running of the PC when browsing the Net, or streaming audio, for example?

Many thanks.

You will not notice the Real-time protection in action until it finds and intercepts a possible attack, it does not interfere with anything you are doing on the PC. It does tell you if/when it has taken action.

Many thanks - so, would you recommend the Pro version yourself (are you using it?)
