Malwarebytes is one of the most popular antivirus programs out there. It is a paid software that has lots of great features. It can run on Windows XP, Windows 7 through Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating systems (and newer). This program can also be installed on Android devices as long as they are running version five Lollipop or higher with access to Google Play Store. Malwarebytes Premium offers protection against:
● Malicious websites – Blocks malicious websites before you click them and enter personal information like your credit card number and passwords
● Spyware – Protects against unwanted advertising software such as keyloggers which track what you type from your keyboard
● Ransomware – Blocks ransomware viruses that encrypt all of your important files and hold them for ransom until you pay the hacker to unlock them.
Malwarebytes has a database that is updated hourly so any new threats are always detected quickly. The premium version offers protection for up to three devices, including Android mobile phones as well as PCs or tablets. It also includes Malicious Website Protection, Anti-Ransomware Protection, and Internet Security features such as firewall blocking (you can’t visit webpages), anti-keylogging (stops hackers from getting your passwords), and antispam filtering (blocks unwanted emails).
The program is easy enough for people with no computer experience to use but still contains advanced settings available for those who are more computer savvy.
Malwarebytes also has a free version which is MalwareBytes Anti-malware, but it lacks the advanced features of Premium and only protects one device instead of three. The paid versions start at $39 for a one-year subscription to the premium service or $59 per year with an option to purchase two years upfront.
If you’re looking to try out this program before buying it then there’s no better way than their 30-day trial offer available on their website: malwarebytes.com/premium/30day-trial.
2. Error code 20025:
As you might know, Malwarebytes is an antivirus program that can run in the background to protect against malware. However, if it’s not up-to-date or your computer doesn’t have sufficient memory for it to function properly then this error code could pop up every time you try to scan your computer.
Malwarebytes needs to be updated every few weeks or so, but it should do that automatically. If you’re not sure when the last time you checked for updates was then go ahead and click “Check Now” on their website: malwarebytes.com
If your computer has insufficient memory (RAM) for Malwarebytes to function properly then this error code could pop up as well.
3. Fix Error code 20025 in Malwarebytes:
In order to fix this issue, first, close all of your open programs except for Malwarebytes – including other security software like antivirus and antispam filters – in addition to any browsers that are running such as Firefox or Chrome. Then try scanning again with a lighter load on your RAM by restarting your computer after closing these extra apps/browsers.
If this step does not work then try upgrading your RAM by shopping for a new, higher-capacity memory module on sites like Amazon or NewEgg.
If this still does not work, then you might need to update your operating system.
To do so: Go to the Settings app on your device and select System > About Phone/Tablet (or Device) from the list of options that pops up. In some cases, it’s called General. Then in the new menu window scroll down until you see “Android Version” or “Software Information”. Tap on it and look for an option labeled as something like ‘Update Software’. This will allow you to upgrade your OS if needed which would solve any memory-related issues with Malwarebytes software.
Now, here are a few things to try before contacting customer service: check for updates by going into settings -> about phone/tablet -> software information and look for an option to update your OS (if needed), restart the computer after closing down extra programs, try a lighter load on RAM by canceling open tabs or running another security program in addition to Malwarebytes.
If nothing has worked and you are still receiving that error message, then it might be time to contact customer service.
