Windows Defender and MB4 is all you need, no bloat, no nag screens, no data collection, no trying to up sell you products. But to each their own.

Hi, out of interest, is it lighter on resources than V3..?

Hi Asyn,
Well not totally sure, maybe a bit. Mbam has traditionally been a IMO 'a bit' higher on resources than some products, however with today's machines and ample RAM I've never considered that to be an issue for the protection given.
The Threat Scan seems a little longer however from my understanding is more thorough than version V3.
I've read where some users or should I say past users have commented on resource use but I have not seen that to be the case in any real negative way. At least not on my systems.
Having said that, with weaker CPU and low RAM I could see that observation as valid.
Certainly wouldn't run smoothly on my XP   ;)

OK, tbh, I'm not overly impressed. Slow scanning and still quite heavy on resources - I like the UI, though.
Personally, I'll stick with EEK as second opinion scanner - it doesn't need/use any resources at all (until run).

PS: Just to be fair, as this is an early beta, I'll probably give the final version another try (once released).

Malwarebytes FREE should be similar …

Well, not really, as MBAM needs an install and therefore always loads/runs some of its stuff at system boot.

I'm glad Bob asked, as I would have otherwise.

A general rule for abbreviations would be not to abbreviate the first use and follow it with the abbreviation (EEE), etc.  If you are only using it once no need to abbreviate it.
