F-secure and malwarebytes

Hi, is it good to have F-secure and malwarebytes with real time scanner?

Thanks

There should be no conflicts running F-Secure and Malwarebytes Pro with real time scanning. Malwarebytes pretty much works with everything. But please keep this in mind: More is not always better when it comes to security products. One anti-virus suite (like F-Secure Internet Security 2013) plus Malwarebytes Pro should work just fine. But throw in a second real time anti-malware product like SuperAntispyware and you may find the computer slowing down or having other issues.

Malwarebytes Pro offers a free 14 day fully functional trial. Use it and see what happens. If you don't have any problems you could always purchase the Pro version. If there are conflicts, just use the Malwarebytes free version. It does not have real time scanning and only operates as an on-demand scanner.

Malwarebytes : Start your trial of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO now and start removing malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans

I already have a malwarebytes license key. And f-secure is client security.

Well speaking for myself I run Kaspersky and it runs fine with the free MBAM but not the paid for version.

Personally I would sooner stick to one good security and use on call scanners as needed. I use MBAM and SuperAntiSpyare on a regular basis and whether it is sheer luck or not have not had any problems.

Unless I'm remembering incorrectly, f-Secure will throw a warning if it's being installed on a machine that has MBAM already on it. That being said, MBAM usually runs just fine in real time with a resident AV installed.

Well, I did say usually. I've never used or even tested Kaspersky, but that's good to know they don't play well together.

Hum well don't think I was having a dig Dbone perhaps I could have worded my reply a little diffrently

If you ever feel the urge to try Kaspersky I have a great config for the program

I found no system slowdown problems with mbam real time and f-secure's realtime scanner so topic is solved.
I will post a new topic if some problem occurs on next year.

Malwarebytes
Am trying to download the free Malwarebytes on a new install and each time I download and install it turns out to be the trial version. I have Kaspersky 2013 installed and after a couple of crashes I am suspecting that the Malwarebytes (trial) is clashing with the Kaspersky so can anyone please...
