Hello Abdulkader,

Welcome to Malwarebytes Technical Support, my name is Chris and I will be assisting you with your ticket #2478736 today.

Here is information below that is Malwarebytes standpoint on running another Anti-Virus along with our product and the exclusions you will need to add if you decide to run both.

Malwarebytes products work well and should run alongside Anti-Virus software without conflicts. In some rare instances, exclusions may need to be set for your specific Anti-Virus product to achieve the best possible system performance. 

Considering you currently have Malwarebytes 3 Premium installed, we believe that the combined layers of protection are a suitable replacement for traditional Anti-Virus programs.

Please check this post in our Forum regarding Malwarebytes 3 AV compatibility and replacement capabilities:


However, if you would like to run them along side each other, you will need to add the following exclusions to your ReadyBoost:

•C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-malware\assistant.exe
•C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-malware\mbam.exe
•C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-malware\mbampt.exe
•C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-malware\mbamservice.exe
•C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-malware\mbamtray.exe
•C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-malware\mbamwsc.exe

Thank you for your patience with this and please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Hello DADER,

Judging by the email query you sent, it seems to have been a misunderstanding on the Agent's part.  Your first sentence seemed to indicate an issue between Malwarbytes and Windows Defender.  

While I understand your frustration with the reply you received, have you mentioned it to the Agent in your ticket?  You don't access the ticket as an employee, you simply reply to the email that was sent.

Please continue in the HelpDesk ticket - I'll be closing this topic so as not to add even more confusion and I will be monitoring your ticket.
