Hello everyone.

I'm planning to run MBAM on my other computer that runs a modified version of NIS 2007. But I wanted to find out first if MBAM can run with NIS 2007.

Can MBAM run fine with NIS 2007 or will they try to fight each other?

Thanks...

Forgot to clarify - I run a modified version of NIS 2007 provided by my ISP (by modified, I mean adding the company name in some places).

Thanks for the reply, frankp316. I forgot that your ISP is also Rogers.

I'll try to run MBAM when I have the time. I'm sure that Norton Security Online (that's what Rogers calls it) is missing some things.

I don't know if it's missing anything. It has a firewall, virus & spyware protection. I do check my history periodically and Norton does pick up stuff but it doesn't notify you so that's why I check the history. But it doesn't hurt to have extra stuff and Super Anti Spyware & Malware Bytes have both found nasties on my system in the past.
