MB 2 - Exceptions required for anti-virus and vice-versa?


Recommended Posts

Hi:
 
In addition to fivelive's advice, it's not "required" to set mutual exclusions.
In many/most cases, it's not necessary.
Many users do prefer to proactively set the mutual exclusions.
 
If you would like to do so:
The screen shot below shows how to add the AV folder to MBAM exclusions.
The text below lists the MBAM files to exclude in your AV.
 
Thanks,

Please exclude the following files from your Antivirus Software for your version of Windows:


For 32 bit 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 you are 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
