  1. I remembered the performance tweak needed - turn off indexing to most of the drive.
  2. Ok thanks - the slowness is just boot time so I don't think it's scheduled scans but that's definitely a good idea.
  3. Sorry one last thing: Windows Action Center is still showing Windows Defender, although I turned off its real time shield. The system is also really slow but this is on a mechanical hd and it is Win 8.. Should I be concerned? Does it have anything to do with the fact that I turned off registering MBAM in Windows Security Center?
  4. Thank you both. I was wondering about Web protection since BD has it too. The one thing I didn't do yet was the allow list, or at least not all of it - did the program data folders just now which was one for BD and one for BD Agent...
  5. Sorry I guess I spoke too soon and at this point I'm just wondering about two files that I couldn't find from a list of exclusions: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mwac.sys and C:\Windows\System32\drivers\farflt.sys Do I need to be concerned about not having those to add?
  6. ok looks like it finished, I seem to remember BD used to not indicate it finished when it did years ago.. Now as far as smooth co-existence of both - I guess there's a standard set of instructions but here are my versions: BD av free mbam Update Package ver 1.0.29507 Component package version 1.0.1036
  7. Windows 8 here. And after I made the post I figured out you can turn off registering in Windows Security Center, and got BD to start installing. However after leaving the house a while where it was installing at 97% it is still at the same spot after I got back. I had turned off all real time shields on MBAM except Web Protection and now turned it off...
  8. I just tried to install Bitdefender and was disappointed that it won't install with MBAM already installed, even after turning off real-time shields. I don't want to deal with the hassle. Isn't there a few major AV that are MBAM friendly? I wouldn't have minded dealing with exclusions but it's a PITA to uninstall MBAM just to install BD. I have this lifetime license from way back that I've activated and don't want it to go to waste, although I have been a Linux user for years and can just dump Windows again if there isn't a straight forward easy solution.
