this is what i was refering too. it could register as anti-spyware and i guess later on, virus protection. I personally do not see MBAM as a anti-virus solution. I see it as more of a complimentary to Anti-virus solution and more of a Web Protection program. I am not the only one who agrees with this sentiment. if you google "is malwarebytes an antivirus program" you will find plenty of similair opinions. I also had a quote from an expert on anti-malware security, but i can't seem to find the link i went to that i saw the quote on.
Anyone who has issues running their AV side-by-side with MBAM should visit this link - https://www.howtogeek.com/230158/how-to-run-malwarebytes-alongside-another-antivirus/
spoiler - it basicly tells you to run MBAM the way I said i did in an earlier post in this thread. I.E. turn off the toggle for registering of MBAM in windows security center.
If my suggestion gets added, then I would defintitly have it registered as an Web Protection software since not not even the software i currently use ESET Smart Security Premium or even Defender are able to register as Web Protection. by default windows has no web protection providers, and as far as I'm able to tell, the link in security center for "Find Security Providers" do not exist in the Windows Store.
