Windows 7: Malwarebytes Premium issues

ps
My updates are all scheduled for 11 - 11:30pm when my computer is generally on but idle; my MSE and MBAM scans are set for the same period. Most other auto updates are turned off anyway and done manually like the Bear does.

Running scanners at the same time is a big mistake,
Cheers.

As already pointed out MSE and CP are both Antivirus programs,
Choose Only One and Uninstall the other.

Yes: running scanners together, intuitively, seemed wrong - so I don't. Regarding your reference to previous indications that CryptoPrevent is an anti-virus program - I'm afraid you've lost me there: I don't remember being told this. I do remember when I first installed CP being assured that it would not conflict with any other protection I had running, but that was the basic, entry-level, first release of CP and maybe it has become more comprehensive in its recent incarnation. Anyway, it now wipes out my gadgets so I'm not using it; but I am concerned that I have de-activated an important piece of protection. Most importantly however: MBAM is now ticking away quietly in the background and my system activity has returned to normal; so it looks like David's suspicion that it was CP conflicting was bang-on target; thank-you.

I do agree with ThrashZone post # 12.


One anti virus on one computer at one time is just a basic rule I think should always be followed.

Run one scanning program on one computer at one time is another golden rule.

The programs have a good chance of auguring with each other run at the same time whether schedule or done manually. Their is also a good chance that running two programs something might be missed.

One anti virus program will see the other anti virus program as a possible infection and all other kinds of problems can and will arise. This isn't news shattering; it has been known for over a decade.

Hello Bear. Thank-you: you're confirming my intuitive understanding.
Thrash-Zone's post said that it had already been indicated that CP was an anti-virus program but I was not aware of such an announcement and indeed, as I said, was assured at the beginning of the year that CP would run comfortably alongside MSE.
What is now my issue of concern is that CP (which I assumed was developed purely to counteract a specific threat) has been de-activated, potentially leaving me vulnerable to CryptoLocker etc.

I'm no security expert but my thinking is that most quality anti virus and anti malware protect from this CryptoLocker.

Please read this in total.

Hi Bear. Thank-you: it appears I have covered most bases by upgrading to MBAM Premium which is splendid news; I'll dump CP and rest easy. As ever, I am much obliged to all you Folks for your help.

I would recommend checking in Setting/Adavance settings that Auto quarantine is unchecked.

Everything in Advanced settings was checked except the delay protection option. I've unchecked Auto Quarantine; I would never have considered it relevant but I do see how it could be problematic now you mention it. What about 'Self Protection' is that desirable or not?

Hi sorry for the confusion on cp being an antivirus program,

Self protection is only an issue if your attempting to remove/ uninstall mbam
If all is well and you haven't been instructed to remove mbam self protect will not hurt anything,
But it is something to remember is activated
Cheers.
