    Don’t forget adwcleaner. It’s great to run this before running the others on your list. It’s also quite quick.

    At first I was using Malwarebytes, but then I found MalwareFox which turned out to be much cheaper, so at this moment I’ll stick with MalwareFox.

      I tried MalwareFox. It’s just a rebrand of Zemana. So I am not sure if it can be even called a real Malware protection suite as it falsely advertises to be. I will better stick to my primary software.

        Are you sure that it’s a rebrand? As far as I know they are simply using the same UI.
