Simultaneous Real-Time Protection modules

Recommended Posts

First, here is my current security setup: Zone Alarm firewall, Microsoft Security Essentials Antivirus, Malwarebytes, and ThreatFire. I have the real-time protection module for Malwarebytes and was wondering if running that in addition to MSE and ThreatFire at the same time is not recommended? I have read that ThreatFire and Malwarebytes are much different, in that ThreatFire protects behavior (zero-day threats). So since it does something different than Malwarebytes, is it okay to run them both in real-time to compliment my regular MSE Antivirus?

Hi -

This FAQ item relates to MSE and if you need to add exclusions to help them work together -

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

Please post back if you have any other questions -

Thank You -

Thanks, that is good information on how to exclude MBAM within MSE. Are there any known conflicts that may occur between MBAM and ThreatFire? Do you think having MSE, MBAM, and ThreatFire all running real-time protection at the same time is overkill? I hope the answer is no, since they all do different things. But I'm wondering if that is just wishful thinking on my behalf?
