Can Malwarebytes run side by side with PCTools Internet Security without any conflicts?

Thanks all!

Hello and

As far as I know there are no conflicts. You could alway go on the safe side and make some exclusions as listed below....

Please exclude the following files from your Antivirus Software (not sure what version of you are using):

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude them from it as well

For Windows XP:

• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

For Windows Vista or Windows 7:

• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

For 64 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7:

• C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
• C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
• C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude MBAM.EXE and MBAMSERVICE.EXE from it as well

Note: Once that's done, please make sure that if either of those programs has any sort of web filter, that you add the following as a trusted site:

`data-cdn.mbamupdates.com`

The FAQ contains examples of setting file exclusions for some known AV products

Please post back and let us know how it went.
