Adding MBAM Files To MSE Exclusions

Recommended Posts

Since I installed MSE last December, I have been running MBAM with realtime protection disabled, as advised by MSE, less the two

programs conflict with each other.

I have seen one or two posts on this subject where the advice has been that MBAM realtime protection can be enabled if MBAM files

are added to "Excluded Files & Locations" in the settings tab. I have attempted this but in trying to add the three relevant Program

Files (mbam.exe,mbamgui.exe and mbamservice.exe), the only resultant setting is a pretty general C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\

Anti-Malware,would this setting be sufficient to stop MSE totally scanning MBAM?

Additionally, I cannot seem to be able to find how to enter exclusions for Documents & Settings and Windows\System32\drivers. I

would be grateful for any advice on how I can resolve this issue, as since I have the paid version of MBAM, it is a shame not to run

realtime protection, especially with 1.45 which is great (no hiccups), congratulations guys!

OS: Vista SP2 Home Premium; MSE; Windows/Router Firewalls; MBAM and Diskeeper2010.

Many thanks,

I have MSE and have added the exclusions no problem. They both work well together too. Here are the exclusions you'll need:

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' 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
