Does MM clash with Vipre AV/AS

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to the Malwarebytes forums.

Usually, Malwarebytes does not conflict with your anti-virus program. Although rare, issue can arise. The most common of these is your resident firewall preventing Malwarebytes from updating. If you experience any conflict between your anti-virus and Malwarebytes, you can follow the instructions below to solve the problem.

This issue is commonly fixed by configuring your firewall to allow the following file to access the Internet:

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref



For further assistance doing this, and for specific instructions for each operating system, go ahead and go to the website shown below, section H, and follow the firewall whitelisting/ignore settings. Ignore that the post says AVG, these instructions are usually universal for whatever anti-virus that you may have.


If you are using VIPRE PREMIUM:

- open VIPRE

- click Web Filter Settings

- click Allowed Web Sites

- add "data-cdn.mbamupdates.com" (without the quotes)

- click OK

- close VIPRE

- update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
