updated, general question

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome, XRaiderV1:

Until one of the MBAM staff comes along, I don't think one would need to disable one's firewall, just one's AV.

And it's just a precaution to avoid the slight chance that your AV might conflict with MBAM while it is being installed.

MBAM is a security application and some of the AV programs are rather "sensitive" about detecting this sort of application.

While it's probably not 100% necessary to temporarily disable most of the major AVs during MBAM install, it's a "best practice" recommendation to prevent the small chance that your AV might falsely detect/block/conflict with MBAM.

Having said all that, I doubt it would be necessary for an MBAM UPDATE -- it would seem to me that it would more important when installing MBAM on a system where it isn't already installed.

I'm just a home user, so I expect one of the staff or a more expert member will correct me if I am wrong. :)



PS Once MBAM is installed, it's also recommended to set the reciprocal permissions/exclusions between MBAM and your AV, to optimize performance. Examples of how to do that for many of the major AVs are described in the FAQ Section >>HERE<<.
