Malwarebytes


Recommended Posts

I understand that esetNOD32 is an antivirus and Malwarebytes is malware, adware, spyware related. I occassional run the free version of Malwarebytes and it picks up things esetNOD32 doesn't catch. Trouble is, Malwarebytes is finding after they installed. I want to purchase Malwarebytes so it runs and stops intrusions ... my question is ... are the two compatible?

Thanks

Hi LinKot -

Basically Yes, very good together - Some of our senior members /experts run NOD32 as well as Malwarebytes in real time - So far nobody has had any problems that I have seen -

Thank You - :)

EDIT - If you are picking things up After they have bypassed your A/V then you do need the prptection of Malwarebytes full time scanner -

For the cheap price it is a Once only cost - There are No yearly renewal fees as with oyher products -

Plus you also have the forum backup at any time and as a paid customer you get preference if you do have problems -

Thanks so much for answering my question. Thanks too for your footer info! I didn't know the price was a one time purchase! That's a deal maker ... I'll buy two licenses!

Wondering if when obtaining licenses if I can buy one for my son's pc ... doesn't live at home (college) - would that be pushing the discount offer?

Hi Again -

You simply click on the purchase panel on the front of the Walwarebytes , choose how many licenses you wish to purchase then choose your payment method - You then get an email with your license and key# to activate the program -

((Just between us, try Cnet downloader as it was offering an extra 5% discount last week if you downloaded from their site - Not sure if it is still valid - Same program as they are one of our bigger downloaders)) -

EDIT - Your choice as to how you use them - But once it is on one computer you must contact them again to change to another computer - If you buy another computer it is transferable when you get the new unit -

Thank You - :)

EDIT/EDIT - Always keep the codes you are sent in an email as you need these to reactivate if you ever change your computer or Un/Re install the program -

Also please use ADD REPLY tab when replying - Thank you - :)

I'm going to take your advise and run esetNOD32 along with Malwarebytes ... what would I expect if I'm having a conflict?

I would appreciate your advise on eset's comments:

An ESET Customer Care Representative has updated this case with the following information:

Hi there, to use a "Layered Defence" is a very good idea. However using realtime scanning of more than one product may cause issues.

I personally use the following as a backup to my ESET Software:

Please be aware that these programs also detect harmless

I posted more below (my reply from esetNOD32) indicating that it's not a good idea to run them together. I'm going to try running them together based on the information you provided. What might I expect if I run into trouble?

Hi Again -

As I do not remember you listing your Operating System here is a list of items you would add as exclusions to any other anti virus or any other Firewall - This is only to make your A/V realise that MBAM is allowed to do its job along side your other programs - This can be explained step by step if you do have any problems - One of our experts has run this setup for a long time and has no problems --

Exclude Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware's Files and Folders From Other Active Security Programs:

For Windows XP:

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
  • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

For Windows Vista or Windows 7:

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
  • C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

For 64 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
  • C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
  • C:\Windows\SysWoW64\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude them from it as well

The FAQ contains examples of setting file exclusions for some known AV products.

You can read the FAQ above on excluding Malwarebytes from some A/V's but I do not have one listed for NOD32 at this time -

Thank You - :)
