Speaking of which, Malwarebytes' scan is beautifully efficient, targeting key areas to ensure a substantial scan that gives a wider picture without waiting hours for it to finish trawling through your entire system. Complete in a swift seven minutes when we put it through its paces, you also have the ability to pinpoint files you wish to scan with Custom Scan.

Malwarebytes' URL filtering feature also makes day-to-day browsing safer with the ability to detect and block any suspicious websites before you well and truly land on anything malicious. With a number of settings to toggle on and off, you can adjust different layers of protection, though we'd recommend taking a deep dive into what some of these confusing layers actually mean before you open yourself up to something nasty.

Available to download across a number of operating systems, Malwarebytes is compatible with Windows, Mac, Android, Chromebook, as well as offering an iOS app in the App Store for iPhones.
