I've been running Malwarebytes 3 alongside Norton for a couple of years with no problems, however my Norton is expiring so I decided to remove it and use Windows Defender alongside Malwarebytes 3. The recommended Setting for Windows Action Center in Malwarebytes turns off Windows Defender real time protection. I have changed that setting to "Never Register Malwarebytes" which allows real time protection for both. Everything seems to be running fine currently. Am I asking for trouble leaving things this way? Are other users doing the same thing without any issues?

Hello and Welcome

There should be no issues with MB3 and Windows Defender running along side each other....

I use the same setup and have no issues. All of my clients are setup up the same way. I do tell Defender to exclude MB's files just in case.  https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-1123

Thanks Firefox and Porthos for the replies. I've excluded those Malwarebyte 3 files as suggested.

Your welcome, glad we could help
