What do you think about ESET's Antivirus compared to Malwarebytes? #1
I do not wish to pay for ESET's Antivirus, although I have had it many years ago and it seemed great. However, I am aware of cracked and free serial keys being available for Malwarebytes, so Malwarebytes is essentially free to me due to this.

Which Antivirus do you think is better? ESET's Antivirus (Nod32, Smart Security), or Malwarebytes (from experience or supported opinion)?

malwarebytes isn't an anti virus so it's not comparable. They can run side by side without any conflicts.

It's an antimalware as indicated by the NAME.

Are you kidding me? What's the difference between an antivirus and an antimalware? You sound like one of those nerds that was at my old high school who always said, "spiders are not insects! They are *insert weird name here*"

For your information, spiders are not insects. They're arachnids.

Well, I guess you got me on that one. But, still. Do you think having only Malwarebytes would be sufficient protection for Windows? Or do I also need an antivirus to go along with my antimalware?

An AV focuses on specifics, that Is, specific kinds of virus/malware hence It's considered an Antivirus "per se". Whereas an Anti-Malware covers a vast range Inclusive of viruses, malware, worms, trojans etc. That said, an Anti-Malware (MBAM In this case), does not protect against "viruses" In the same capacity as an AV.

By name and functionality, an Anti-Malware Is not classed as an Antivirus, thus can run side-by-side with an AV without compatibility Issues.
