Trend Micro wants to remove Malware Bytes before it will download.

Hi and welcome:


This is a very old thread.

But it is still the case that some AVs complain about the presence of other security applications during installation.

This is more about "marketing" than about "compatibility", per se.

(But I've never heard of this happening just to DOWNLOAD the AV.)


So, yes, if need be, just temporarily uninstall MBAM before installing TM or another AV, that's OK.

The best practices are here: MBAM Clean Removal Process 2x

You ought to be able to reinstall it after you get the AV up and running.


If you have trouble, or if you want to set mutual exclusions between MBAM and TM, please post back and we will be happy to help.
