Talking tech since 2003

We all know how much of a problem malware can be on the Internet and computers in general these days.  I just found this picture on the front page of reddit which clearly demonstrates how important it is to have a good anti-malware program installed on your computer.  Check out the results from a complete system scan with Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware:

Objects scanned: 289,910
Objects infected: 32,154
Infection rate: 11.1%

That’s insane!  Over 11% of that computers files were infected.

So how can you protect yourself from a situation like this? I’m going to recommend you read over my article on how to stay secure online for more information.  If you end up infected and need assistance with cleaning it out, feel free to post on the BestTechie forums under the Malware Removal section.

It’s also worth noting that Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware PRO version comes with a real-time protection module as well as addition protection like IP Blocking which make keeping your computer infection free much easier.

So what’s the most amount of infections you have ever caught with Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware?
