I presently have McAfee on my machine. Will Malwarebytes co-exist with it?

There should no problems, Just try out the 14 day trial for your self.

You might want to add MB to the McAfee exclusion list just in case.

I suggest adding these to the exclusion list in McAfee And exclude McAffe in Malwarebytes.

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbae64.sys
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\MBAMChameleon.sys
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\MBAMSwissArmy.sys
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mwac.sys
C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\farflt.sys

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MbamPt.exe
C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\assistant.exe
C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMWsc.exe
C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbamtray.exe
C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMService.exe

I have Malwarebytes Premium 3. on my Dell PC and McAfee Life Safe - McAfee keeps telling me I need to uninstall the other virus software (Malwarebytes) to fix my current protections by McAfee... The mcAfee window shows that I have AntiVirus and Anti Spyware Real Time Scanning in effect so I don't understand the push to remove Malwarebytes.  Would the files listed above added to the exclusion list from the March 16, 2017 posted by Prothos Techbench correct their so called problem that needs to be fixed?

Possibly.

You can change this setting to never register.
