Malwarebytes has a great and well-arranged user interface. The UI reflects the developers' desire to make it simple and easy to use. 

The UI features three options which are:

  1. Detection History.
  2. Scan.
  3. Real-time Protection.

When you click on any of the options above, a new window will appear in which you can make changes to the detected files, perform a scan or see the status of the system.

As for the performance of the program, it is certainly one of the best anti-malware software, where it has appeared in Cnet'slist of the best antivirus protection of 2019 for Windows 10. It is also worthwhile to mention how lightweight and small size Malwarebytes is compared with traditional antivirus software.

Unfortunately, Malwarebytes is not free and can be tried for 14 days and then you either buy the premium version and continue to enjoy Malwarebytes full protection, or use the free version which is severely limited and does not provide many options, for example, the free version does not contain real-time protection and therefore does not provide real protection from viruses and depends on scanning the system to identify the damaged files.
