    Hi, I just had my first adware attack and used Malwarebytes to clean it up apparently perfectly thank you. However I balked at first = why isn’t Malwarebytes in the App Store?!?

    #2–How does Malwarebytes “revive your Mac?”

    Thanks,

      Because of limitations on what App Store apps are allowed to do, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac cannot be made available through the App Store without crippling its functionality. As for “reviving your Mac,” adware can often cause performance problems that may be solved once it is removed.
