3 or 4 months ago I was using both and I was having a boatload of problems.  I was told that they were not working well together so I nuked Kasp. 

Are they working well together?  I would like to use both.

Hello @ChrisPbass,

We released an update to the standalone Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware that addresses this issue.

We hope to bring this into the latest Malwarebytes version 4 product in an upcoming update. Until that time, the 2020 version of Kaspersky products cannot be run with Malwarebytes version 4 when Ransomware Protection is enabled.

Thank you for your patience with this issue.

Hi ,

Did MB's new version with Component package 1.0.835 already had this update ?

I have not used Malwarebytes since December, when these incompatibility problems started. Today I decided to install MBAM again to see if the problem was solved, and it was only after the installation was finished that the computer crashed again. I uninstalled MBAM and the problem stopped. My license will expire next month and apparently I will not renew.

Regret to read of the trouble & your frustration.   One wishes you had asked for guidance prior to this past install.  The current advice on situation is to turn off the ransomware protection on MB immediately after the install.

My personal view is that the prospective future update is on the near term horizon.

Thanks @Maurice Naggar

Below is what the other post reads for those passing through


Malwarebytes Components Update: version 1.0.854 addresses Certain Ransomware protection incompatibilities with Kaspersky

This release includes, along with other things, the fix for Kaspersky, iTunes and Photoshop

If your PC is already on Version 4  ( regular or beta) you will be updated to it automatically as long as automatic updates are enabled. If you have temporarily disabled them then please enable them to allow this update.


The original Kaspersky conflict issue was due to a change made by Kaspersky on their Antivirus E) programs. As their change was causing issues for our users we took it upon ourselves to work on developing a workaround for this conflict.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 20 version was released on July 24, 2019
Patch E for Kaspersky Anti-Virus version was released on October 23, 2019 which is when the issue was first reported to us.
Patch I for Kaspersky Anti-Virus version was released on February 18, 2020 and is the latest at the time of this posting on 2020-03-19


Please note that although our update works around this issue, at any time in the future another update from Kaspersky could once again potentially create another conflict. This applies to most other security software as well since we do not have control over what other security program changes other vendors make. On Windows 10 the built-in Microsoft Windows Defender has consistently worked pretty well alongside Malwarebytes when enabled for quite a while now for those that have chosen to use it.
