Malwarebytes with another program MSE

Recently I downloaded the free version of Microsoft Security Essentials as well as Malwarebytes. It wasn't till recent findings on the internet saying I ran both with their Real Time Protection on. So I turned off Microsoft Security Essentials Real Time Protection, but my computer kept on warning me that i'm not protected. The only reason why I did this was so no conflicting things happen between the two applications. Even though I haven't noticed any slowdown, besides random internet disconnection. (don't know conflict can cause that)


I later found your tips https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/10138-common-questions-issues-and-their-solutions/#entry181018 but had some problems that could have been just not updated. One is I couldn't find & add mbamgui.exe, so I ddn't. Also I couldn't find the Ignore List tab in Malwarebytes, so again I did not do that. The weird part is after doing these things (again beside those that were noted) launching applications like a web browser like chrome took double the time to load up.. Other application also took a bit longer than normal. I don't know if doing those things can do this by conflict.


Note: I have the trial version on Malwarebytes. Although I am purchasing the premium version at the beginning of the month


Thank you for your help

Hello Jverstohlen:
Your computer is not well served running without full-time Anti-Virus protections against malware. The tips you found are for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and somewhat earlier. If your computer is running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, these tips will not match well till an update has been officially written.


Using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.x:
Please exclude the following files from your Anti-Virus software (we are 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 32-bit (x86) versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 & Windows 8:

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamdor.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbampt.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamscheduler.exe

For 64-bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7 & 8:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamdor.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbampt.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamscheduler.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:


Please post back and let us know how it went.
