Hi saud99,

Your question can be answered in better detail by the moderators and other more knowledgeable forum members, but one general recommendation is you should not have two security programs running at the same time on the same computer when both have real-time scanning enabled. Doing so can cause problems.

@saud99:

Personally I would not run BOTH MBAM PRO and SAS PRO alongside PURE2.

SAS PRO is considered to be incompatible with KIS/KAV/PURE: http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208281996 (you will notice that MBAM is NOT on the list of incompatible software.)

SAS has never picked up anything more malicious than a tracking cookie on any of my rigs.

MBAM is not incompatible with KAV/KIS/PURE, but one must be certain to install PURE first, and then to install MBAM, making sure that the proper exclusions and permissions for MBAM are configured in PURE.

I use KIS2011 (haven't yet updated to 2012), MBAM PRO, and SAS Free with no problems.

But I think if you add SAS PRO to PURE2 and MBAM PRO, you are likely to run into slowdowns or conflicts.

If you try it, be sure you set the necessary permissions for both MBAM and SAS in PURE2.

If you run into problems, SAS would definitely be the one I would uninstall first.

@spc3rd:

As you point out, "more" is not necessarily "better" when it comes to running more than one security program on one's system.

That is especially true when it comes to running more than one standard AV suite.

However, MBAM (and SAS) are designed to run alongside the standard AV suites, such as Norton, McAfee, KL, Avast, etc.

Neither MBAM nor SAS is an AV - they work differently to protect the system against threats not covered by the standard AV suites.

So, they complement the AV suite to provide layered protection.

Adding either MBAM PRO or SAS PRO to a standard AV suite is fine, as long as everything is properly configured.

That said, I wouldn't run both with an AV, especially one as robust as PURE2.

While doing so may or may not actually contribute directly to INCREASED system security vulnerability, as one would experience with 2 AVs, it would be unnecessary and may contribute to serious performance issues.

As you point out, I'm sure the experts and mods will have more expert advice on this,

These instructions are for KIS/KAV, but they should be similar or identical for PURE2.

NO, I would absolutely NOT run Counterspy PRO and PURE2 and MBAM PRO and SAS PRO.

There is no need and you will be inviting SERIOUS performance and security issues.

Hi daledoc1,

Where might I find the procedure for setting exclusions, permissions, etc in McAfee in order to be able to use MBAM PRO without any problems? I have seen numerous postings on the McAfee community forums and other sites stating that it is fine to use the free version of MBAM since it does not have the real-time scanning enabled, but not to use MBAM PRO since it does.

Thanks very much for any info!

Hi, spc3rd:

Rather than hijacking (albeit unintentionally) saud99's thread, please start your own new one here at the General forum, and we will assist you there.

Thanks,

thanks daledoc1

i did that

and i found counterspy added there from its self

NO, I would absolutely NOT run Counterspy PRO and PURE2 and MBAM PRO and SAS PRO.

There is no need and you will be inviting SERIOUS performance and security issues.

and there is too: "svchost.exe"

is that normal?

Sorry, but I am not sure I understand your question about svchost.exe.

We may have to wait for advice from someone more expert.

Best regards,

i mean i founded in the Trusted applications in kaspersky those files was added from them self i never add them:

svhost.exe

SBAMUI (the pathfor the file is for the counterspy)

Hi, saud99:

I cannot be sure.

svchost.exe is a "normal" file, but it can be infected by malware.

I am not trained or authorized to assist with malware detection or removal.

So, since this is the MBAM forum, not the Kaspersky forum, I would respectfully suggest the following:

1) Perhaps it would be best to check out This Kaspersky PURE forum. If you can post a screenshot there in a new thread, one of the experts can take a look.

2) Alternatively, if you think your system might be infected (and perhaps that is why you are installing so many security programs?), then it would be best to do this:

1. First, please go to THIS PAGE, print out, read and follow as many instructions as you can, skipping any you are unable to complete.

2. Then, please describe your computer's symptoms as best you can and post the requested logs by starting a new thread at the Malware Removal-HJT forum . (Please use copy/paste to include the scan results directly in the body of your post, rather than attaching the log files.)

One of the authorized, trained experts will then assist you as soon as possible for one-on-one malware detection and removal.

When you post, please be sure to select Track This Topic & choose one of the email options, so that you will be notified when someone responds.

Please be patient and allow at least 24-48 hours before bumping your thread - the "0" reply count helps the experts spot your thread.

Other Support Options:

--- Alternatively, as a paying customer using MBAM PRO, you may wish instead to start a support ticket by contacting support at: support@malwarebytes.org; or

--- Premium, fee-based support options are available here.

Best regards,

Yes it is normal that svchost.exe is there.

@R9R: Thanks!

@saud99:

Correct!

If THAT is the svchost.exe to which you are referring, then yes, it is important NOT to delete it from the list or change the settings.

If you need additional help with PURE2, then it would be best to take your questions to the forum at KL, as I mentioned.

There will be many more members there with direct experience with PURE, as this is the MBAM forum. :)

Best regards,

daledoc1
