Re: [vox-tech] protection error in Directshow app

Hai Yi,

I have been using Malwarebytes free version for over a year that removes all spyware it
finds. Here is another link from the Malwarebytes website. They have a green download
button there that redirects you to a Cnet website. Once on that page the download
button they have there says "Tested spyware free" Here are the links I use 1st
google search "download malwarebytes" -
Then at Malwarebytes site on the left side of page "blue download button" that says "free" on it -
When click on the free button it takes you to a Cnet website to download it.
Once you download and install this, it is a free version and any spyware it finds it will remove and
will not charge you for using it . Malwarebytes DOES have a paid version, the difference between
the PAID version and free is - The paid version runs in the system tray constantly monitoring your
system for spyware. Also the other link I sent from MajorGeeks is a free version as well.
Hope this clears things up for you.
