Can I run Windows Defender and MBAM together?


Recommended Posts

As I understand Win32, user processes run in their own address space should not be able to cause another process to crash.

For this reason, active protection cannot be accomplished on a per-process basis, if you want to be able to manipulate other processes! So you have to use techniques outside the process space.

If both are running and both simultaneously detect a piece of malware, neither will be able to delete it because it will be locked by the other's scanning/detection process. This can cause your system to hang as each one eats up cpu cycles trying to deal with the malware. It's kind of like 2 dogs fighting over the same bone.

Correct :

Run one am/as protection in real time

Run one av protection in real time (= a must !)

Eventualy run an aditional am/as tool "on demand" for a second opinion.

The "on demand" versions are usualy free$ :-)
