If I have expired Norton on my computer, and download MalwareBytes, will a problem occur?

Norton is Anti-virus + firewall. Malwarebytes is an Anti-malware scanner it doesn't have real time protection unless you buy the paid version. It should cause no conflicts.

If Norton is expired you are better off removing it through Control P anel>>Add remove Programs. MBam is not an AV replacement. It will not conflict with Norton or other AV tools.
