Today, open up PC and Defender shield has red x- so opening Windows Defender 10- Windows Antivirus and Threat protection says: MWB installed; then below that: status unknown. Further down, MWB is off, device may me unprotected. Which is it Microsoft? According to MWB, it is ON! Just FYI if nothing else. MWB is set to: Windows Action Center= let MWB apply best Windows Action Center Settings. Signed, I don't know.
I've been running Malwarebytes 3 alongside Norton for a couple of years with no problems, however my Norton is expiring so I decided to remove it and use Windows Defender alongside Malwarebytes 3. The recommended Setting for Windows Action Center in Malwarebytes turns off Windows Defender real time protection. I have changed that setting to "Never Register Malwarebytes" which allows real time protection for both. Everything seems to be running fine currently. Am I asking for trouble leaving things this way? Are other users doing the same thing without any issues?
I recently upgraded from MBAM Premium v2.2.1 to MB Premium v3.1.2 on a 32-bit Vista SP2 computer. I have Norton Security v188.8.131.52 installed and my Windows Security Center now shows both NS and MB as installed virus protection programs. Would it be prudent for me to change Settings | Application | Windows Security Center to Never register Malwarebytes in the Windows Security Center and leave NS as my only registered antivirus? The status indicator for Windows Security Center in my system tray doesn't display a red shield with an "X" through it (at least when I test with my automatic Windows Updates enabled) but the online Malwarebytes Help documentation for this setting seems to imply that Malwarebytes should not be registered if another antivirus program is installed. I'm not sure about the best way to proceed since that documentation only refers to Win 7 or higher machines using Microsoft antivirus products like MSE and Windows Defender. (Note: The built-in Windows Defender on my Vista SP2 machine is an anti-malware scanner that only scans for a small subset of malware programs. My Windows Defender is automatically disabled at boot-up by my Norton antivirus.) ----------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.1.2 * NS Premium v184.108.40.206 * MBAM Premium v3.1.2 HP Pavilion dv6835ca, Intel Core2Duo T5550 @ 1.83 GHz, 3 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
