MBAM-n-Antivir


Recommended Posts

does anyone know if it is OK to run MBAM, in realtime, along with "antivir premium 10", with its "webguard" feature?

i would like to try running MBAM in realtime but i have always been concerned that MBAM, with its IP address-blocking feature, might conflict with antivir's "webguard".. having MBAM running, with its IP address-blocking feature, along with antivir's webguard, along with whatever else, might be too much for my computer, messing up its "networking"..

i am running win xpsp3, "system safety monitor", the "windows firewall", the "CHXI" packet-filter, and "antivir premium 10"..

so, i have got antivir's "webguard" hooked into my computer's "networking".. "system safety monitor" is hooked into it.. the CHXI packet-filter is hooked into it.. with MBAM running in realtime, i guess it would be hooked into it too..
