The site is very informational. It offers easy to read tutorials for basic security threats. The ads and links are not intrusive or misleading. The content is CURRENT and well organized. The search optimization is well done and ethical. There are no downloads DIRECTLY available on the site that I could find 鈥?they are all links to other websites (Malwarebytes). But hey, the guy can鈥檛 work for free.

DITTO to Muscogulus (Jan 25, 2018) Except IMO the "undisclosed" relationship with Malwarebytes is a NON-issue. It is clear that he is advertising with malwarebytes and his affiliate number is in all links. It is a perfectly legit way to offset the expense of developing, updating, and maintaining a free informational / tutorial website.

It's pretty obvious that someone with a lot of time on their hands doesn't like the site or site owner. I can clearly see links to the free version of Malwarebytes. I didn鈥檛 find any of the information that other negative comments refer to. I am a senior web developer and looked at his code 鈥?there is absolutely nothing there to indicate the site is using any unethical tactics or grey/blackhat marketing. The site is using up-to-date software and is very transparent. There are no pop-ups or even aggressive marketing tactics deployed on the site. There are some mixed content warnings coming from an old shortcut icon link and some advertising but nothing even close to unethical or dangerous. All of the recent articles are relating to things I have seen myself RECENTLY and have had clients email me about and, without having read them all, they do not appear to be opinion based. This site is providing a very good service and is doing so without charging or compromising users鈥?information beyond the probable collection of non-identifying data via cookies that every site uses.

WOT is not doing their job here and is doing a DISSERVICE to this company and to online users who may use the WOT service or who need help protecting themselves from the real unethical people in this situation. They are allowing this site to be negatively impacted by the very people they are supposed to be protecting us from. IMO this site should be manually reviewed by WOT. I had to go through three pages of bashing to see any accurate or recent comments. I do not have any knowledge of who owns botcrawl.com nor any ties to the company. I just saw some blatantly obnoxious and false reviews from people taking advantage of an apparently unmonitored automated platform (WOT) and thought this was the right thing to do.

This site provides instructions on how to get rid of EasyPDFCombine which is a browser addon people seem to find installed, without knowing from whence it came.

I can only imagine why this site gets bad reviews.

From what I understand, the software could have an effect towards makign it legit in itself. I wouldn't know. I never tried it. What I do know, is that with it installed, it hijacks your HOME screen, and it tries to open a series of websites everytime you start your browser.

ESET Antivirus goes haywire everytime I tried starting the browser, with blocked websites.

A run with Malwarebytes did the trick for me.

I found this website listed on AboutUs, a trustworthy site. Upon navigating to the site, I was puzzled that none of the links warning of various viruses linked to other sources e.g. Symantec, Sucuri, FBI, Microsoft virus databases, as is customary with anti-malware sites, but instead were all internal links to botcrawl itself. I also noticed that the links to MalwareBytes, an excellent tool, all included affiliate tags to the paid version, not the free version, which is atypical for a legitimate security website. There is always a link to the free version of MalwareBytes. No other problems experienced based on my first-hand experience.

I am a real person please do not erase this comment.

This website botcrawl.com is not unethical. It's the most popular malware removal tutorial website on the internet, with having said that, they will always attract spam and competitors will make false statements about them.

Yesterday their trust was at 93, then they wrote an article describing how untrustworthy mywot is…. now their rank is at 66. In ONE day!

Sometimes the truth has it's consequences and unfortunately for them their reputation has been improperly represented on mywot.

That's the truth, most people already know this.

Once again, I am a real person, do not erase my comment. Not a fake account like other comments claim.

Ran the site through Sucuri, just to be sure, because it's a WordPress site and WordPress has had some sites compromised lately. The site appears to be using the latest version (3.4), and Sucuri rates it Clean.

The content is unobjectionable; the malware-removal advice is basic but sound. My only quibble is that the site links to downloads of Malwarebytes Pro, without giving an option of installing the free version of Malwarebytes instead.
