"Relevant Knowledge" malware

Here's a success for MB.

My Internet Explorer 8 stopped working and I spent ages trying to find out why. Two successive deep scans with Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 with updated databases failed to reveal problems. In the end, on a tip I ran the free version of MalwareBytes Quick Scan and it immediately flagged 32 items of scum, all related to something called Relevant Knowledge. I allowed MB to delete them and IE started running normally again.

I'm buying MB today.

Thanks for this valuable information.

I've just bought the product and have the ID and key. Do I understand correctly that I don't need to reinstall the MB that I downloaded and installed 2 days ago, just Register it by entering the ID and key, i.e. the free version is the same as the bought version, just not registered.

On the assumption that it would interfere with Kaspersky I had not intended to run the MB Protection, just run MB scans regularly and frequently. Are these concern unfounded ? Should I be running both in Protection mode ?
