Is anyone else having issues when pairing Malwarebytes with Sophos Anitivirus? When both are installed windows explorer randomly locks up and everything becomes unresponsive. The machine must be manually powered off to fix this. In order to get both programs working correctly I must disable the on-access scanning feature within Sophos. I've notived that it's only the "read" option for on-access scanning that causes the problem; I can leave the "write' and "rename" options selected.

I have purchased a corporate license to install mbam on all of our machines but need to figure out how to fix this issue before rolling it out.

We are using

Sophos endpoint security ver 10.0 ( also happens on 9.5)

Malwarebytes -

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

Especially if your Windows clients are running XP, be sure to update to latest MBAM release vs

As to Sophos, no direct experience, but use trust exclusion settings in Sophos suite & also in MBAM as per the F.A.Q. MBAM article http://forums.malwar...showtopic=10138 & use section F as a "template example"
