Windows 7: Malwarebytes 3 conflicts

Malwarebytes 3 conflicts

Hello Folks. I replaced the premium versions of MBAM & MBAEX with the new MB3 Premium.
I have since noticed occasions when my processor is running at 100% which is not something that ever happened before.
You can see what else I am running and what MB I had previously.
I put MB3 into MSSE exclusions and vice versa.
Are there now conflicts and should I scrap anything?

Hello spaceman mate am no expert and am also a little confused as to what you are asking as a Google of the MBAEX came up with nothing and MB3 show up that it was an Apple software and I know the MBAM is Malwarebytes so what I don't understand is what is the relationship between MBAM and those other two soaftwares

All I can say is my ex partner used to be iTunes and other Apple products mad and I was frequently undoing the wretched state of the Windows OS. The only thing I can think of is that one or the other is running automatically and hogging the CPU.

For several months now, MB3 has been causing various issues for many people. The general consensus is the folks at Malwarebytes pushed out a new product with too many new features way too soon. MB2 is supposed to lose support in June 2017 but as of now MB 2.2.1.1043 is still available for download from Malwarebytes. A lot of people I know have gone back to MB 2.x and individually installed MB anti exploit and MB anti-ransomware.

This Forum thread has a lot more info about the problems with MB3. It starts on Page 112 (lots to read.) The post from MoxieMomma (#1156) on Page 116 has some additional info.

Latest Version of Malwarebytes

If you want to uninstall MB3 and go back to MB2 for the next few months, suggest you follow the uninstall instructions posted on the Malwarebytes Forum. Hope some of this info helps.

Thank-you; I have subsequently discovered what you have pointed out: MB3 is too much, too soon; I have certainly been forced to spend a lot of time trying to sort it out. I uninstalled MSE completely, as I felt maybe it was conflicting and I was also uncertain if both were necessary. It seemed to me that MB3 was such a comprehensive suite I could maybe do without MSE but I didn't know and was hoping one of you folks might alert me when you read my post. However, just to be on the safe side, while I was waiting, I tried to re-install MSE and it would not allow the 'Real-Time' element of the suite to activate. It seems, having two real-time malware scanners running is no longer possible but who is blocking what remains a mystery. As it happens, everything has now settled down, and all appears to be well. Windows Firewall remains in place and MSE continues to run daily scans after up-dating, so I'm sort of half-happy. Any comments welcome.

Well take a pick from this Free Windows Desktop Software Security List | Gizmo's Freeware
and the link from that is this Free Windows Desktop Software Security List - Realtime Protection | Gizmo's Freeware
Lots of real time and free. I do advise folks though not to touch AVG, Baidu, MuckAfee, or Comodo (only because the latter can be an awful nagger. The picks I would suggest are Bitdefender, Avast, Avira, Panda, Sophos, and to others MSE but as you have problems with it - no.

I have tested these on my desktop testing machine and found them all really quite acceptable though I would still say use MBAM and SAS as add on scanners.

still uncertain

I have to confess to a degree of ignorance here: what is missing from MB3? Do I need additional security (beyond Windows Firewall which is running). Is that what your list is for? Should I add an additional layer, and if so, precisely what do I need if MSE is uninstalled?

If you remove MSE, which is a anti virus program, I recommend installing another anti virus program of your choice. Their are many to choose from.

Could any of you suggest why MSE real-time protection refuses to turn on? In the settings menu it shows it as 'on' but the 'Home' page shows the big red X.

I would just go with another mate as Jack says and there are plenty in that link/s I sent you and those that I have tested out and would use myself if I were not using a paid for AV.

I'm not sure what MSE home page has got to do with your computer. Do you have MSE installed on your computer?
If so have you updated the it and run a scan?
