I think you are safe in using Malwarebytes as an added layer of security. I use the free version and scan once or twice a week. I don't use Kaspersky. but I don't think they will clash as long as you don't have too many programs trying to monitor in real time at the same time.

Just using Microsoft Security Essentials and standard Windows Firewall. I don't download illegal software, only browse legitimate websites and don't even waste my time with e-mail from people I don't know.

Sounds like you have got it goin' on. I also use W7 firewall and MSE. I just have a couple of extra layers of security in case something were to slip by or I visit a site that has been hacked, and you never know which one that could be.

Hi, ExplicitUrSelf.

Yes, Malwarebytes (MBAM) is certainly safe. Since you have a security suite, you can use for occasional scans as a check-up. You may want to do a full system scan the first time, but a quick scan is all that will be needed after that.

Avast! Internet Security 2010 v5.0.594

Disabled items:
Windows firewall
Windows defender
User Acount control (UAC)

I even disabled these services: ( these frees some RAM and makes computer run faster, actually these are useless)
Security Accounts Manager
Security Center
