Software Update: Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware 1.46

Malwarebytes has released version 1.46 of Anti-Malware. This program is the successor to RogueRemover. It is similar to Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware, but it does not focus on fighting spy and adware. The program removes malicious software that pretends to be a bona fide antivirus or antispyware solution, but actually has less good intentions. As with Ad-Aware, there is a paid variant that offers additional functionality, including real-time protection. The changelog of this release shows the following changes:
