Had nothing but problems with this program i still like malwarebytes pro has never let me down and Malwarebytes always flags IOrbits software especially that dreadful Advanced Systemcare Stay clear of that

Doc, The reason ASC is flagged by Malwarebytes is because it is a competing program and wants you not to use it. I have to ask then, What is Malwarebytes afraid of that it doesn't want another cleaner there.

Timothy,

actually malware bytes hates IOBIT because it had infringed copyrighted items that were private to the A/V and A/M engines of MALWAREBYTES ANTIMALWARE

Timothy, malwarebytes is NOT competing with ASC... ASC is not an antimalware product its a supposed system optimization/maintanance tool.

Malwarebytes if competing with anything would be todays giveaway product. ASC would be flaged as PUP because it can trash a system if the wrong thing is "cleaned" and because it heavily pushes all the other iobit products on trusting end users causing otherwise working systems to become bogged down with surplus iobit products nagging the end user to pay for this and then that, a generally unplessant scenario!

I've had this program last time it was given away & had nothing but problems & caused MANY of my programs to stop working so I uninstalled it. It wants to delete to MANY items that are NOT a problem. False positives!!

I will give this a shot..I've used the iOBit uninstaller for a while now and am very impressed, so let's see how this malware program stacks up against Malwarebytes etc.

I had been using Malawarebytes Free for ages and about a month ago started having problems with it updating. For some reason it saw 'no internet connection' and that continued even after reinstalling and that got frustrating. Because of that, I decided to try the free version of IObit Malware Fighter and have been satisfied with it thus far.

I realize some people are disappointed by the 6 month license offer but reality is, these are businesses with overhead and salaries to pay and need to make money. Of course, they hope you'll try it, like it and buy it. Is a free 6 month term to use and test a software really so bad?

For anyone who has the free version already on their PC, I simply input the registration code and it updated to the Pro version without having to run the installation files.

Thanks to IObit and the GOTD team!

jboy, thing is iobit don't have the overheads of normal anti-malware as they "buy" in the bitdefender AV engine and their patterns so no your argument really does not pan out. Of course the bitdefender products are significantly cheaper than iobits too. And you won't have the wanted product push advertising their entire software repitoir like you get with iobit products either.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

TK, With all due respect, whether you think their overhead is low or not, they are a for-profit business. They do offer a permanently free version and today they are giving away their paid version here with a 6 month license for free. Is it as good an offer as a 1 year license, perhaps not. Is it better than a 1 month license, yes. People sharing experiences about the functionality of a software is helpful but whining about the length of the license is clutter. I just never understand people who complain about getting something free!

And just for the record, I've been using the free version of this for about a month now and have not gotten any "push advertising" as of yet. Sure, there is a little orange button in the bottom frame to "update to pro" but that seems quite common to have on any free version of a software package.

Peace ✌

jboy, let me try and explain why people complain about a 6 month or other period trial pro or other cut down license.

if you read at the very top of this page:

"Every day we offer FREE licensed software you’d have to buy otherwise."

Fact IObyte quote a price for the offereing of $39.95 and that is the FULL price for a whole year. Fact they are not selling a 6 month pro license for $39.95. therefore they are not offering a license we'd have to buy otherwise as they do not sell a 6 month license!

People are expressing dissapointment that the giveaway is disingenuous

This is not trialoftheday.com but giveawayoftheday.com

It is a marketing opertunity for the vendors to instantly get several thousand person audience. Though some may convert directly to sales, it will result in better google rankings to be linked to from such a high ranking site as this which will also increase their exposure as well as social media exposure. It makes little sense that vendors shortchange the giveaway by NOT offering a license they would otherwise sell and damage their own reputation through a marketing exercise such as this.

And yes I would look a gift horse in the mouth, I'd check its teeth, legs, ears and eyes too, in fact I'd pay a vet to give it a complete health check as the last thing I'd want is lumbered with a litterally knackard, lame old nag that I'd have to end up having put down and disposed of after several massive vet bills and having to buy a stable and food and a rent a stable hand or waste my own time on it... I'll also do the same with software too. Remember the historical tale of the real Trojan Horse? still happens with software to this day.

Note: IObit Malware Fighter Pro includes the Bitdefender AV component. It may not effect everyone -- it may just be this Windows install -- but I had to stop using [completely remove] Bitdefender in Win7 because newer versions break VirtualBox. The problem doesn't occur for me in Win10. That's NOT to say that IObit Malware Fighter Pro will effect running V/Box in Win7 -- just something to watch out for if you do run V/Box in 7.

mike, Just to note I run similar W7 with VMware and never have any problems Just a Note oh and for anyone else reading this a quick tip get IObit Advanced System Care and there is an easter egg in the Action Center Tab that allows you buy deeply discounted IObit programs I think I paid like 3.99 for this program Malware Fighter Pro.

Whether it's a six month or twelve month license is irrelevant. Either way, if you don't renew the license after the expiration, it reverts from the Pro version to the lifetime free version with fewer features. Most security software is this way. I think that this six month license of IObit Malware Fighter is good for business because it acquaints people with the software, which leads to purchases. And it's good for people because it gives the Pro version for a time, at no cost. And then reverts to the free lifetime version. As for IObit Malware Fighter Pro, the fact that it is teamed with the best or one of the best anti virus companies in the world, Bitdefender, makes it very attractive as a security program. Interesting too is its ransomware protection feature. If I didn't already have Bitdefender Total Security, I'd definitely give IObit malware Fighter Pro a try. Then if I liked it, I'd wait for a sale and try to get it at half price, or less.

I have tried this program in the past. Seemed to work pretty well. I would recommend trying it out, if you are looking for a program like this. But, I'm still partial to Malwarebytes Pro. I've been using it for years and see no reason to change.

IObit Malware Fighter Pro 5.5.0 is good, easy of activation, can work with no interaction with kaspersky, solong is a giveawayoftheday, I am content for it being 6 month, but you may think of giving it for a whole year as freeware in future and be the first giving pro version of antivirus for the whole year!

It seems that AVG does not like IObit Malware Fighter to work along so it turns to "passive mode" until IMF is uninstalled.

Reply   |   Comment by Radu  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+26)

more like passive aggressive mode

Reply   |   Comment by Matt  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

Radu, unless you turn off the BitDefender antivirus engine included in IOBit Malware Fighter, AVG antivirus will go to passive mode. If you disable the Bidefender antivirus element of this software, the rest of IOBit Malware Fighter plays just fine with AVG.

Two competing and active AV engines can lock up your system.

Delighted to see this program available again.
I believe I got it here 6 months ago and that expires in 3 days!

Download the file and the code needed is in the Zip File.

Went like a dream on my ancient XP System.

Definitely one of the better Giveaways!

Thanks!

I can use only the free version. No activation code transmitted in any form.
After installing and launching this software Windows10 has frozen out.

Just detected the readme.txt file with the key, that is attached to the setup.exe file.

Long a curious hybrid -- its conception is part iObit, part BitDefender, its provenance 2012's iObit Advanced System Care PRO -- 'Malware Fighter Pro' is nowadays even odder for the parental rivalry that continues to obtain.

Contrary to the price quoted on this page, iObit has been selling its Malware Fighter Pro at $20 off (down to $19.95 a year for three computers) ever since BitDefender started selling its Antivirus Plus at $30 off (down to $29.99 a year for three computers.) The two can be compared on these links:

http://iobitsoft.com/iobitsoft_store.php

https://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/antivirus.html

Thanks to GOTD today, the iObit sibling can be trialed for six months. By contrast, the BitDefender sibling's trial period is 30 days.

Having run both, my own view is that the $10 annual premium represents the better value for protective software from a company with a world-renowned track record in this specialised sector -- BitDefender -- compared with that from a company -- iObit -- whose specialism has never been in this sector but, instead, in so-called computer 'optimization'.

It has come down to what might best be described as one's comfort level, about just how much faith one should invest in iObit's self-described "much improved anti-malware engine" compared to BitDefender's peer reviewed, award-winning all-round competence.

That said, today's offer is worth exploring by those who have never sampled the iObit product before, and if, as hoped, iObit has cut back on the nag screens and up-sells for its other products, the experience should in theory be OK. Just bear in mind that as noted, this is hybrid software from two distinctly separate developers of distinctly different accomplishment. . .

This is easily one of the best offers from GOTD in quite some time! If you need good protection this will do a stellar job. No system is ever 100% safe but this is a great line of defense! It uses the bit defender engine and has added protection from it's own engine as well.

Thank you GOTD!
