Kaspersky Pure and MalwareBytes


Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome, haleirwin:

I can't speak directly about PURE, but many of us run KIS and MBAM PRO without issues.

Excellent combination!

You may find that "the experts disagree" a bit about the details of installing (especially the order in which to install the 2 programs). :)

KL folks tend to insist on the best practice of temporarily uninstalling MBAM (run the mbam cleanup tool), then install & configure & activate KIS/PURE, then PAUSE protection in KIS, and then reinstall MBAM.

Several folks here have had success installing KIS without going through this MBAM uninstall process first.

But, it is probably the "safest" procedure in order to avoid potential conflicts.

This is the procedure I follow (but I am just a paranoid home user, not a computer geek).

MBAM Clean Re-installation Instructions: (NOTE: If you do not already have MBAM on your computer, start with Step 2.)

NOTE: You need to be logged in as an administrator.

1. Download and run mbam-clean.exe from here.

Note:It will ask to restart your computer; please allow it to do so -- very important!

2. After the computer restarts, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus (AV) and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here. (Note: Ignore any promos or ads for other software/products at the mirror sites; and there is no fee to download MBAM Free.)

Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent via email, if you are using the PRO version.

3. Launch MBAM (and set the Protection and Registration, if you are using the PRO version).

4. Go to the UPDATE tab, if not done during installation, and check for updates.

5. Restart the computer again (and, if you are using the PRO version, verify that the MBAM icon is in the system tray).

6. Set up any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications. You may use the guides posted in the FAQs here, or ask and we'll explain how to do it. (Specific steps depend on the AntiVirus software vendor & version, and on your computer's OS).

7. Restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications.

8. Add the program folder(s) for your AV and FW to MBAM's "Ignore List".(Let us know if you need help with this.)

9. Set up your scheduled updates & scheduled scans (this only applies to the PRO version). Scheduler help is available here.

10. Run an MBAM Quick Scan.

--------------------------------------------

These instructions are for step #6 and step #8 above.

They were written for KIS/KAV 2011, but they should be very similar or identical for PURE.
