malwarebytes real time protection?

ok so i use Avast anti-virus free and i like it very much i was thinking of purchasing malwarebytes pro version and can i use it with a realtime anti-virus or should i just use it with real time protection on its own?

I suggest logging onto their forums (Malwarebytes Forum) and post a question about whether the two will clash in real-time (I doubt theu will though). They are pretty good at answering questions quickly. I think you will find they are perfectly suited to both run in real-time.

I run the licensed version of MBAM alongside Microsoft Security Essentials with NO issues.

Incidentally---I think the normal price is $25 for a lifetime license.

But there is a promo code that will knock off about 10% from that price. I used it successfully. It's just a little 6 or 8 digit code that I did not save.

You can probably find it with Google.

I like the licensed version--it auto-updates definitions 3 or 4 times a day.


Just googled it myself. Look here:
