Introducing Malwarebytes Techbench

October 1, 2013 | BY

Over the last several years, we’ve had techies asking for their own version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Allow me to introduce Malwarebytes Techbench.

If you service computers for a living, this tool will make your day a little easier. Simply plug in the Malwarebytes Techbench USB stick, check a few boxes, and it detects and removes malware automatically. It will even install a copy of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware if you so choose.

And this is just the beginning. Malwarebytes Techbench is a work in progress, and we’ll be adding more tools and features, at no extra cost, based on your feedback. This is a different format for us—it’s the only product we offer that can be used to fix PCs without buying individual licenses—so, please, do tell us what does and doesn’t work for you. You’ll see enhancements in every rev.

Basically, this is the tool that I wanted but didn’t exist when I was a tech. Best of all, it costs only roughly $1 per day at the special introductory price. If you do multiple malware removals per day, you know just how inexpensive that is.

Did I mention it also comes with an awesome lanyard?

Visit the product page here to learn more or to buy Malwarebytes Techbench. Read more about it in our press release here.

    seriously overpriced…

  • Doug A

    There is nothing here that warrants this pricing. I do free tech support for co-workers, friends, and family. It does not take that much extra time to use the slower methods. Sure, it may be beneficial to have one computer I’m working on to be disconnected from the internet while removing malware, but that is a rare issue. There has never been a computer I have not been able to clean or rescue yet. Yes, there are some pretty cool options, but (none) worth paying all this money for.
    I’m curious… does the government or NSA have anything to do with the pricing? I mean.. maybe its a secret government ploy to (not) have such a tool in the hands of ordinary people trying to combat injustice.

    We purchased 2 Techbench USB devices with the assumption that we could boot to the USB devices and remove malware. After receiving the devices they are nothing but Malwarebytes Antimalware software installation devices. When you have malware/viruses etc. that prevent you from running applications, installing applications, or getting on the internet; the Techbench USB device is useless.

    We’re working on making them bootable!
