I am inquiring about Malwarebytes real time protection. I had another third party antivirus software on my MAC. The antivirus had an update which partially caused a Kernal Panic. I had to have my MAC wiped clean and then have a fresh reinstall of Mojave. The third party antivirus apparently clashed with the already built-in malware and antivirus in the OS. I have been reading and told due to the already built-in security, third party security can cause conflicts in the OS. Apple Technicians highly recommend Malwarebytes and told me using the free version and running an occasional scan will suffice. I am curious about if real time protection is really necessary and how this would be different from any other third party antivirus.
At intermittent intervals, I get a message that the Real Time Protection has been turned off. This lasts for probable under 1 second and after the message shuts down and I check the application, everything shows as enabled. I contacted on line chat and they put the start up of the program as delayed. This did not solve the issue. I then sent a support request, and 3 days later, not even an acknowledgment that the ticket was submitted. My version of Windows is Windows 10 Pro and it is fully updated. Can anyone shed any light on this? I'm concerned that the machine could be infected during that short time that the real time protection has been disabled.
