windows not recognising malwarebytes as antivirus software


Recommended Posts

title says it all really!

running windows 8 and an old outlook (2007)

just bought and installed malwarebytes pro and so turned off MSE - now get annoying messages when I send emails from Word macros which means I need to change my security in outlook to get my emails sent - can I sort this out by getting windows to accept malwarebytes as antivirus software?

Hi:

 

Welcome.
 

can I sort this out by getting windows to accept malwarebytes as antivirus software?

 
No, I'm afraid Windows does not recognize MBAM as an anti-virus (AV), because it is not an anti-virus.
Does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware replace antivirus software?
 
You need to have a robust, real-time AV (either free or paid) to run alongside MBAM.
MSE (aka  Defender) is no longer recommended, even by MS.
