If that does not fix it, then we will need a bit more information in order to better assist you.

Brand name of antivirus is ??

Antivirus app & or its firewall component might be causing (interference) with our real-time protection.

Please let us know right away the Brand-name of antivirus on this machine.  Is it McAfee, TrendMicro, Norton / Symantec, Security Essentials, Avast, BitDefender,  Kaspersky, or some other brand, which one exactly?

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware works well and should run alongside antivirus software without conflicts. In some rare instances, exclusions may need to be set for your specific antivirus product to achieve the best possible system performance.
I suggest putting in trust settings in your antivirus, as follows:
Please "put as Trusted" (i.e., put Trust settings ) for the following MBAM exe files within your Antivirus Software **whitelist** :

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 Windows Vista or Windows 7, 8.1, 10, or Windows XP:

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 or Windows 8.1, 10:

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:
data-cdn.mbamupdates.com

Check your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security application to see if you can add exclusions for specific applications/files to ignore.
You may need to check their support website for instructions.
You will need to set your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security to ignore/exclude the files I listed above.

Do not go without a antivirus.   McAfee is a good a-v.

 

To exclude known safe files and applications within the settings of MCAFEE:

Open your McAfee Security suite.
Click Real-Time Scanning: On.
Click Excluded Files.
Click Add file.
Browse to, and select, the file or .exe you want to exclude from scans.

IF you have Avast  and since you uninstalled McAfee, it is a good idea to make sure all of McAfee is removed.

Get, save, and then run the McAfee product removal tool

That would insure all traces are removed.  And then reboot the pc.

For Avast, make these adjustments:

Set Exclusions for Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in Avast! Antivirus:

Open Avast! antivirus and click on REAL-TIME SHIELDS on the left
Click on File System Shield on the left and click on Expert Settings
Click the Exclusions section
Click on Browse next to the blank entry at the bottom of the list (this will be the only entry if no other exclusions have been set yet)

In the Select the areas window click on the + next to C:
Click the + next to Program Files (x86)  Note: For 64 bit Windows versions this will be Program Files (x86)
Click the box next to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and click on OK
Click OK again
Click on Web Shield on the left and click Expert Settings
Click on Exclusions and check the box next to URLs to exclude:
Type or copy/paste the following address:

*.mbamupdates.com
Click on OK

Also, for Avast! Internet Security:
Click on Behavior Shield on the left and click Expert Settings
Click on Trusted Processes
Click on Browse next to the blank entry at the bottom of the list (this will be the only entry if no other exclusions have been set yet)
Navigate to C:Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and click once on mbam.exe and click Open Note: For 64 bit Windows versions this will be Program Files (x86)
Do the same for the following files:

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
 
Click on OK
Close Avast! antivirus
