if you are running Kaspersky does Malwarebytes at anything significant?

It's always good to have more than one program to check for things the other programs might miss. No one program does it all.
Malwarebytes Anti Malware Professional is my choice to run active with my anti virus.

me too

that's a combination that I've been running for years. I have just been reevaluating a lot of stuff I'm automatically loading and running out of habit.

thanks Larry

I run Malwarebytes pro and Vipre which do not conflict. The pro version of Malwarebytes has saved me several times when I ventured into unknown URL's

I have Kaspersky and I read somewhere online that Malwarebytes conflicts with Kaspersky.
I was thinking about adding Malwarebytes till I read that, but.....??

I never had a conflict problem with MBAM Pro and MSE or Avast as the AV.
Some people do have AV conflicts, so exclusions can be setup to fix the problem.
Here is an MBAM thread about Kaspersky conflicts:
Kaspersky Conflict with MBPRO

You can use the trial option of MBAM to see if you have issues and setting exclusions fixes any conflicts.
Using the trial you get to use the MBAM Pro features for 2 weeks for free.
That way you can test MBAM Pro to make sure it works for you before purchasing it.

I ALWAYS create a System Backup Image before installing programs, major updates, system changes, etc. - especially security changes and patch Tuesday updates.
I can restore the image from before making the change if things don't work out.
That way I don't have to depend on any uninstall utility to insure there are no leftover registry keys, files, settings, tasks, etc.

If you're considering MBAM Pro I suggest deciding sooner rather than later while the lifetime license is available.
Version 2 will be a subscription (annual fee) license.

Well I did post back Dallas but my link wasn't working properly.

Now I have been running Kaspersky for four years on five machines and I found that KISS does not really like MBAM real time but ok with t as on call scanner.
