can i disable malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

Hello silverlady, and welcome to the forums here at Malwarebytes.org :)

Actually, Malwarebytes is NOT an anti-virus (AVG is an example of an antivirus), and you need to be using an anti-virus in addition to Malwarebytes.

You do NOT need to disable Malwarebytes while using an AntiVirus program... you should add exclusions though:

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to post!

If you don't currently have an anti-virus installed:

The following are my recommendations for antivirus protection along with links to downloads for them (free trials for those that require a purchase so you can try them before deciding):

Note: If you decide to use one of the trial versions of one of the paid antiviruses then you will either need to purchase it or uninstall it completely and install a replacement antivirus before the trial expires so that your PC is not left unprotected.

MSE Downloads:

Definitions Installers:

Note: If installing the definitions in Windows Vista or Windows 7 you MUST right click the definitions installer and select Run as administrator and click Continue at the User Account Control prompt.

Thanks :)
