How effective is 9-lab Removal Tool?
Compared to my favorite malware tool, Malwarebytes, I found that each seemed to have a niche of things it determined to be a threat to my PC. Things Malwarebytes found, 9-lab didn’t and vice versa. However, 9-lab was much quicker than Malwarebytes, so personally, I’ll be using both into the future as I find that utilizing them both has been far more effective than just one tool over another.
