No mate as long as you set MBAM scan settings to as per pic and I like to keep it (MBAM) as the free version and not as set to as the main security - just an addon scanner. Leave that to KIS it's ok on it's own.

Ooops sorry meant to ask what do you mean exactly by uploading?

You can set exclusions for Kaspersky and MBAM if you have a conflict problem with these programs.
MalwareBytes Compatibility: Kaspersky PURE - Malwarebytes Forum

I schedule scans to not run at the same time...
It also makes a difference what type of scans you are running, Quick-Scan, Full-Scan, etc.
For me, Quick Scans take minutes to run, Full Scans take hours.

Regarding your "Upload" question, are you sure the MBAM page you looked at does not show "Upgrade"?
Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer

If you can schedule scans and updates in MBAM, i assume you are using the PRO (paid) version...
MBAM PRO also includes real-time protection.

Mate what I meant was that if you run the full version of Malwarebytes - just in case you didn't know what MBAM means - it will conflict with the Kaspersky. If you look at the settings in the pic it unticks the filesystem for scanning with Malwarebytes because Kaspersky does not like being scanned in that manner.

By an add on scanner I mean you run it on an ad hoc basis and not as a online / on call scanner.

The upload is just if you want to have the full paid for version.

Now just for your info I ran the full version of Malwarebytes a few years back before I knew better and Kaspersky did not like it.

I was advised by a very experienced software fellow who did a lot of development work on the Kaspersky security suite and he put me right on what the problem was with the Malwarebytes running alongside it and the problem with the filesystem scan issue.

Anyway I have said enough each to his own you must do what you think is best.

1st MSE NO and NO to any others 2nd MBAM YES only keep it to the free shortened version and as an on call scanner only.

After being Kaspersky (KIS) for some years now I found it also as well to disable (untick) the Scan Filesystem objects in the scanner settings as I find KIS doesn't like that particular feature and it makes the scan quicker - but thats just my own preference - probably many would disagree with me but...

KIS is a anti virus
MSE is a anti virus
Use one or the other but not both at the same time. Remove one of them.
MSE and MAM Pro run on my computer active at the same time without any problems.
I have also run MSE and the free on demand MAM at the same time without any problems.
