Malwarebytes for senior parent

Hey all, I need to install some type of anti-virus on my grandparents laptop.

I would like to first mention that they work on an old laptop so the anti-virus they use can’t use too many resources.

My grandparents like to click pretty much anything on their screen so I wanted to know if Malwarebytes Premium would be a good choice for them. I plan to have them use Chrome with Ublock-Origin as a precaution. I just want something I can install for them and not really have to worry about it.

I’m open to any suggestions and it doesn’t matter if the anti-virus is free or premium.



I’d suggest hardening their email filtering rules first in advance of what you’re trying to do

Chances are they have an email for accessing some form of website or service. Any phishing, spammy type email is most likely to put them at higher risk of malware. I suggest locking down that first
