Hello and welcome, pit: :)

>>Yes, you can run MBAM PRO alongside your anti-virus (AV). :)

In fact, MBAM PRO is specifically designed to provide layered protection with a robust AV. :)

Does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware replace antivirus software?

In some cases, on some systems, users find it helpful to set mutual exclusions between MBAM PRO and their AV, to optimize performance.

If you tell us the name and version of the AV you use, we can provide some specific guidance for that.

>>Having said that, no security product -- not even MBAM -- can protect you 100% of the time from 100% of the millions of malware variants that exist today.

You mentioned that you use torrents.

Filesharing/downloading from unknown sources is one of the leading causes of transmission of malware.

Here are some helpful articles about that:

>>You also mentioned that you're not sure if you might be infected.
