Greetings and welcome :D

I've run these two together in realtime myself without any issues, but to avoid any conflicts or performance problems I would recommend doing the following:

Set Exclusions for Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti-Virus on 32 bit Windows Versions:

  1. Open Kaspersky and click on Settings in the upper right-hand corner
  2. Click on the right-most icon in the upper left to access Detected Threats and Exclusion Rules
  3. Under Exclusions click on Settings...
  4. In the Trusted zone window that pops up click on the Trusted applications tab
  5. Click on the Add button and select Browse
  6. In the browse window that opens navigate to C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  7. Double-click on mbam.exe and in the window that pops up, click the box next to each of the items listed in the window so that they are all checked and click on OK
  8. Do the same for each of the following:
    • mbamgui.exe
    • mbamservice.exe

[*]Once that is complete, click on OK to close the exclusions window

[*]Click on Apply at the bottom of the Settings window then click on OK

[*]Close the Kaspersky main window

Set Exclusions for Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti-Virus on 64 bit Windows Versions:

  1. Open Kaspersky and click on Settings in the upper right-hand corner
  2. Click on the right-most icon in the upper left to access Detected Threats and Exclusion Rules
  3. Under Exclusions click on Settings...
  4. In the Trusted zone window that pops up click on the Trusted applications tab
  5. Click on the Add button and select Browse
  6. In the browse window that opens navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  7. Double-click on mbam.exe and in the window that pops up, click the box next to each of the items listed in the window so that they are all checked and click on OK
  8. Do the same for each of the following:
    • mbamgui.exe
    • mbamservice.exe

[*]Once that is complete, click on OK to close the exclusions window

[*]Click on Apply at the bottom of the Settings window then click on OK

[*]Close the Kaspersky main window

Set Exclusions for Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Internet Security in Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware:

  • Open Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and click on the Ignore List tab
  • Click the Add button on the lower left
  • In the small browse window that opens, navigate to C:\Program Files and click once on Kaspersky Lab and click OK
  • Close Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or issues.

Thanks ;)

You're welcome ;). The only thing I ever noticed between the two with regards to conflicts was a bit of sluggish system performance, but that was resolved completely once I set the exclusions for them as described above.

hmm. have you ever experienced clash between detections of viruses or malwares?

No, not at all. That's because of the very different ways that the two programs work. Kaspersky scans files as they are accessed/downloaded, while Malwarebytes' only checks files when they attempt to actually run, which is long after Kaspersky has already scanned them in realtime. That means that if a detection is made by Kaspersky and removed, Malwarebytes' never even sees it, but if it makes it to Malwarebytes', that means that Kaspersky simply wasn't capable of detecting the item.

That's how Malwarebytes' is designed to work, as a backup program for your antivirus to catch the threats missed by your AV ;).

As I posted in the FP thread, Malware Bytes detected Trojan.Zbot inside Kaspersky's sandbox folder, after installing Noscript for Firefox. So maybe MB has a problem identifying files inside Kaspersky's Sandbox.

That would not surprise me, since the whole point of the sandbox is to............well, you know, sandbox! :D

That said, I've not had any FP detections with MBAM in the KIS sandbox, also running FF with the same extensions, including NoScript.

I don't use SafeRun for websites routinely, except when doing financial stuff (I don't think it was intended for "routine" browser use, for which it would be a bit of overkill), but I do use the VK quite often.

Have you tried clearing KIS/KAV SafeRun from time to time, to clean out the accumulated files there?

Just a thought,
