    Question Why Isn't MalwareBytes included...?

    Todays article ( A new report on malware-removal performance ) indicates that MalwareBytes has not been included in several testing sites results since "2014"? Anyone know why?
    It was at https://windowssecrets.com/top-story/...ity-awareness/
    Thanks

    Because it's not an antivirus, it's designed to run alongside an antivirus.

    Wasn't that explained near the start of the article?:

    The two glaring exceptions are McAfee and Malwarebytes; the former wasn't included in the removal tests due to a "miscommunication," and the latter has, apparently, not offered its software for testing. (There are probably legal reasons that AV-C can't simply download Malwarebytes and test it.)
