All I can say concretely is that MBAM significantly helped to remove some malware - Conduit Search Protect - that got onto my wife's machine. Technically, Search Protect is a "potentially unwanted program", but it's malware in my eyes since it actively attempts to prevent being uninstalled.
It's possible that the real-time aspect provided by MBAM Pro wasn't necessary for this - note that Search Protect got on the machine while MBAM Pro was running.
As an aside, a recent evaluation of Webroot SecureAnywhere that I did showed that product was effective in blocking Search Protect from getting on the machine in the first place. I hope to write up some of my findings of that evaluation sometime soon.-mwb1100 (March 11, 2014, 02:51 PM)
My wife also had this Search Protect, we removed it manually: http://cookieverwijd...ackers/searchprotect
