I have Malwarebytes and MSE both, and they are doing their jobs well.
Almost forgot....ThreatFire 4.7 is also installed.

I would not rely on MWB as your primary line of defense. Have something like MSE for primary resident defense and spybot and then MWB for non resident malware protection. I say this because to date MWB has not found a single item where the other two have.

You dont need 2 anti virus programs running together. Needless use of resources and could cause conflictions.

Unless I am mistaken, swarfega does not have two antivirus programs actively running.

Malwarebytes is an anti-malware software.
MSE is an antivirus software
ThreatFire is a system monitor (Even though PC Tools AntiVirus is included for On-demand Scanning, the a/v is not active.)

Nope, you're not mistaken. The combination works just fine.
