There's seems to be some issues about Malwarebytes and BitDefender playing nice together. It seems that the latest free version of BitDefender apparently does a forced uninstall of Malwarebytes Pro and it doesn't have a way to add Malwarebytes Pro to the BitDefender exclusion list. Presumably this is because Malwarebytes Pro does real-time scanning. If you're using the free version of Malwarebytes (without real-time scanning) there probably won't be any issues. From the Malwarebytes forum:

EDIT: I just found an official BitDefender tech support statement that BitDefender 2013 will work with the free Malwarebytes (without real-time scanning.) See post # 7 from this BitDefender forum thread.
