Malwarebyte Blocks Avast Services!

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased MBAM PRO and I was told that it can run smooth with Avast Internet Security and SUPERAntiSpyware (paid) without causing any conflicts. But I started getting so many popups from MBAM every few minutes saying it blocked an outgoing connection from process - avastsvc.exe

I'm pretty sure that this is not a threat and I want to know how to stop MBAM from blocking it. I tried putting avastsvc.exe to the ignore list but it did not work! I will attach the 2 logs containing the details and will also copy paste a small part of it below just to make it clear.

Also I got an error message saying it blocked an outgoing connection from skype.exe ( another popup and again it kept popping up pretty often). Does my Skype process contain any form of malware or is this another false positive? if it is, how can i stop it from popping up ?

But I am positive that avast process being blocked it a false positive and Please give me a solution to this soon.

The part of the log file containing the process of avast being blocked is pasted below and the log files are attached.

There might be a connection between these 2 issues. All the required logs are attached there.

It's possible there's a connection, yes. However, the IP protection shouldn't be getting disabled unless either yourself, or MBAM, disables it. AdvancedSetup will help determine what's causing it for you.
