Setting to stop real-time protection to allow Defender for AV

Recommended Posts

I know malwarebytes does not protect against virus, so I want to deploy Windows Defender,

but can't, as it generates error and warns in action center that it would be competing

with current malware product if it was to be turned on, which can't be forced anyway,

So, what do I do?  What settings can I change to be sure I have both aspects of security

covered?  It starts with Windows and I checked of Self-protection mode, so mwbytes doesn't

quarantine windows files . . . thinking starting with windows is real-time setting?  Not clear, option language!

Hello and :welcome: :
MBAM does not report to the Windows action center and is not an AV.
So, it should not be generating messages about conflicts with Windows Defender (regardless of the OS, as Windows Defender is a very different application in Win7 from Windows Defender in Win8/8.8/10).
Let's get a bit more information, so that we can better assist you.

Please read the following and attach to your next reply the 3 requested logs - Diagnostic Logs (the 3 logs are: FRST.txt, Addition.txt and CheckResults.txt).


Thank you,


P.S. The forum moderator team may move this thread to a more suitable location, such as HERE. No worries, though. ;)


P.P.S. Self-Protection module in MBAM protects MBAM files from modification (e.g. by malware). It has nothing to do with protecting Windows OS files. But we can come back to this later.
