A knowledgeable friend suggested I get Malwarebytes as it was better at cleaning up after an infection than most AV software. Instead of MB, I accidently downloaded a Malwarebytes Pro trial. I apparently got a product that includes full-time protection, and scheduled scans. It seems quite nice, but on the surface, not very different from Microsoft Security Essentials. So the question comes up "What is the functional difference between MB Pro and MSE? A virus is a kind of malware, so surely MB Pro protects against and scans for viruses like MSE. If Malwarebytes works better, It seems like I don't need to keep my MSE, but in these forums I find much support for using MB in tandem with MSE and other AV software. So, what gives? Appreciate if someone could shed some light my way. Thanks, Jerry
