Greetings. Hope I'm in the right forum. I recently upgrade for Windows 7 to 10. I had Premium on the old 7 machine. I did not uninstall Premium before I switched to the new computer. I would like to transfer the old subscription to my new 10 computer. I have read some posts online that stated that if I do transfer the subscription that it will override the Edge browser and turn off Defender. Not sure if I want to do that.

1: If I do transfer can I still have Defender with Premium running in the background?

2: Will it slow my computer down?

3: Can someone tell me step by step how I would go about this procedure.

 

Many thanks in advance for any input .....

Greetings,

You can still use Windows Defender alongside Malwarebytes.  To do so, open Malwarebytes and go to settings by clicking the small gear icon in the upper right then select the Security tab and switch the setting under Windows Security Center to Off and then restart your system and both Malwarebytes and Defender should now be running together.

Hello @Chasbo47  

To your # 3 above, see this support article about the steps to transfer a License

https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360038522574-Transfer-or-Deactivate-Malwarebytes-Premium-license-key

 

P.S.   Malwarebytes does not "override" Edge.  Though the meaning of your short note on that is not clear.
