Absolutely not, aside from the obvious not running two resident AVs, it is only time before you get bit in the ass.

You also have to trust whatever security application/company you use and ethics/morals have to feature high on that list and iobit seem to have a chequered past in this regard.

If not forgotten IOBIT came from Chinese people. ;)

They get updates from MBAM detection and put it to their Product.

Well, not all IOBit Products are evil, guilty and unreliable... Anyway, SmartDefrag is fairly good
And 'Chinese'... It's not the point, I've never seen a single user of IOBit among my domestic friends (in mainland China), no need to be 'sad', serious.
PS: MBAM is not so fantastic as what has been described in hosts of posts. In China, I don't think it is able to detect 50% viruses on circulation. In accordance with a test (informal), even one month later, the detection rate of MBAM is as low as 58%, compared with avst! 97% and ESET, Avira,Panda, Kaspersky , etc., whose detection rates are all over 93%. (Viruses based on a list collected among a whole month)
It hasn't marched into China, well, this might be one of the reasons. But even before Avira marched into china, its detection rate was the highest among all AVs (heaps of false positives, though), hence the only thing to blame seems to be its technology.

What's the problem with the Chinese?

It's a matter of trust... We lost it.
Auslogic Defrag is doing a better job.

hence the only thing to blame seems to be its technology.
Which one?

Anyhow,I deem it necessary to clarify some adherent misleadings. With a polulation of nearly 1,500,000,000 (estimated by Chinese public) whose level of education is getting higher and higher, what are you expecting? 'Many of the ** are chinese', it make no sense.
And 'Piracy'. Is it because the Chinese grudge paying for them (for example, AVs)? Not necessarily. Did you know that only one single extra service provided by Tencent (the company running QQ, an IM in China) would consume 30 yuan a month? (Compared with Norton Internet Security, which could be bought at a price of 125 for two years' service, and Bitdefender, which used to be at a price of  69 yuan for three years' services when on sale) While Tencent has incented eight extra value-added services for QQ (what are they? well, for example,you can make your QQ Zone, something like Facebook, extremely charming, beautiful, fascinating). You can Google for more information if you want.
Most of the software companies are diplucating the operation modes exercised in their own countries to their China market while expecting to see them run well, which is a ridiculous fantacy.

You can not compare the detection rate of MBAM with AV programs.
MBAM is a specialized tool, with about 250 000 definitions. they concentrate on frech Trojan like malware.
avast is close to 3 000 000 in definitions
They block bad websites (IP block) but they do not scan for HTML / java script inf like AV programs do
They also remove detection when they see that the bug is not a problem for AV programs.....

Arguing with a youngster like ziucqea is like aguing with a big mountain that refuses to move at your command ::)

Posting in blue exposes his newness ;)

Maybe he knows everything and will take over the world soon ;D

IOBIT are thieves :(

They not only stole technology and signatures from MBAM, but probably from other companies as well ( according to Marcin ) :-\
