  1. Question though... I notice Windows Defender real time is not ON and I can't find a way to turn it on. Is Windows Defender needed with the latest malwarebytes or should I figure out how to make both run at the same time. I'm okay with using just Malwarebytes if we have to...but....
  2. My wife's Windows 10 laptop unbearably slow. Did everything I could to optimize it. Finally I removed Kaspersky and replaced it with Malwarebytes. Ten times faster. This computer will get by with Windows defender and malwarebytes. Not sure why Kaspersky slowed the computer down so much. I have no problems with Kasperksy on my other computers...maybe its gremlins.
  3. Thanks. I'm guessing the only way it could do that is by constantly having spiders scanning the web, which is so large, must be very powerful software to do that.
  4. I'm also curious because I am again using malwarebytes alongside Kaspersky, where for a long time I relied only on Kaspersky. But Kaspersky let me down for the first time. I went to a site for information, and a minute or two later, Kaspersky warned me I had been infected with fileless software. Kaspersky detected the virus, successfully deleted it, but in the process I found I had some corrupt Windows files which I could not repair with a Scan or any other way, so ultimately I had to reinstall Windows. So if Malwarebytes would have prevented the infection to begin with, that would be a bi
  5. Exactly what does Malwarebytes do? I went to a legit website to purchase a product, submitted my credit card number, sent it, got a thank you and then all of a sudden I got a Malwarebytes blocked site due to Trojan alert. I don't think it was the site I was on, but apparently something on that site threw me to a rogue site? Which got me thinking, I know malwarebytes has a data base of bad ip addresses, but there must be thousands of sites added every day that have dangerous links or exploits, so does malwarebytes scan every website you go to for malware before giving you an alert, or is it
  6. Just installed Kaspersky Office Security 8, the newest version. It required deletion of malwarebytes claiming incompatibility. I know it was months before I could use malwarebytes with Kaspersky 7. I suppose I will need to wait again with this newest kaspersky version?
  7. If I understand it, Version 4.1 is now compatible with Kaspersky? do I need to worry about exclusions?. I want the secondary protection of malwarebytes if at all possible. I caught a fileless malware from visiting a website the other day, and although Kasperky stopped it while in memory, I still wasted time as kaspersky used advanced processes to disinfect the computer. Then I had to reset my Chrome account to stop popups. Kaspersky worked well but I was a little irritated it allowed the exploit onto the machine to begin with.
  8. Unless or until Malwarebytes and Kaspersky reach an agreement on compatibility, I have learned to just go with Kaspersky. I have several long term licenses available for malwarebytes and two of them are used on my daughters' apple computers. The others simply will lie inactive. I use windows though and I just don't think anything can beat Kaspersky for overall solid protection. I still use Malwarebytes free to scan but it never finds anything because I assume Kaspersky lets nothing in. I would love to use Malwarebytes as secondary protection, but if they are not compatible they are not co
  9. Thank you Exile. Can you keep us updated when there is compatibility again? For now, I am just going to go with Kaspersky, but would still prefer Malwarebytes too, not only as secondary, but because I noticed it warned about about and blocked exploits from some web pages that Kaspersky seemed to miss, or at least Malwarebytes detected the exploits first.. Thanks.
  10. Same thing just happened to me. I uninstalled malwarebytes this time. No matter what I did in the past, no matter what exclusions I put in, Malwarebytes still was blocking kaspersky in some of its applications. They both seemed to be working okay anyway, and would like to continue using Malwarebytes...but not if somehow it impairs the performance of Kaspersky.
  11. I have used every possible exclusion, but no matter what I have done I have to accept Kaspersky and Malwarebytes are not compatible per the attached screenshot. So my question is with Malwarebytes services being blocked by Kaspersky, is Malwarebytes doing me any good? All of the modules are green and appear to be functioning, and malwarebytes has blocked malicious websites on my computer. So what am I losing? If Malwarebytes is being blocked from doing its primary job, maybe I should simply remove it from my computer and live with Kaspersky by itself? I liked the secondary backup of malw
  12. The answer really comes down to what you want to protect imho. My daughters use only Malwarebytes on their macs...and that likely is good enough. But I would never rely solely on malwarebytes on my windows computer...why? because I use my computer for work and not only would downtime cost me money, but would make available confidential information for my clients. I can't and won't take that chance..so I use malwarebytes for secondary protection and rely on what I believe is the best security out there...kaspersky, with 30 levels of protection..far better than windows defender as far as I a
  13. Exile, I will say one thing with the caveat that I know Kaspersky is a much larger company with far many more "experts" on its programming staff...but having been using it for years now....I never recall a time when an update caused a problem with my computer. Once a year I upload the new program, always flawlessly...other than that it updates itself behind the scenes. Just saying. Last January the issue with Malwarebytes is old news now, but caused quite a problem at the time, and then there was a small blip what, a month ago or so on some Win 7 computers? There is nothing that hur
  14. Thanks folks...I do have advanced disinfection technology enabled in Kaspersky as well as rootkit scan and safe money. I am unwilling to turn any of these off...I use Safe Money all of the time, and not sure what advanced disinfection technology does, not a clear description on the web, but if it works on memory processes and prevents malware from taking hold, it is obviously important. Interestingly, I went to this site to test malwarebytes web protection, ip block notification, http://iptest.malwarebytes.org and that seems to work on my computer too...see below... So bottom line,
  15. Really, If every computer user on the planet knows this, why don't the experts at malwarebytes know this? Thank you exile, but I have to assume that HIPS is part of Kaspersky's "system watcher" and sure it can be turned off...but best as I can tell there is no way to exclude anything...anyway, that is the part of the program that protects malicious activity, like Ransomware, from infecting your computer ..stops it cold and rolls back the damages...so I guess I will continue using both and not worry about whatever Kaspersky is blocking. I know that Malwarebytes still works because it has
