Re: Opinions on malwarebytes virus cleanup software?

It is one of the best anti-malware applications I have seen.  Not only does it get rid of some of the most annoying 
pieces of malware (antivirus 2009, for example), it does it with the quick scan (completes in about 10-15 min on most 
computers) and without going to Safe Mode.  I have added it to my recommended list of anti-malware software and 
recommend it to my friends and colleagues.  In fact, in most cases, I don't even need to run AdAware or SpyBot, my old 
standbys.
 
I actually found it when I was trying to remove antivirus 2009 and haven't stopped using it.
