    I read this doesn't provide real-time protection. Why then rely on it? Thanks

    acerfmayer,

    The FREE version of MWB does not provide real time protection and is used by most as a secondary on-demand scanner. It also has an excellent reputation for removing malware that other products will not remove. That said, the PAID version (PRO), which I use on all my machines, does provide real-time active protection and also plays well with other scanners (in my case Windows Defender) allowing the use of two active scanners which I do because NO ONE PRODUCT catches everything. I also use MS Windows Defender Offline once a month as a third level check! HTH
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!
