I run both to get a great level of detection. Mbam is definately faster. But if you run them weekly they both are less than a half hour.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Hi Nia,

After reading some of your posts, I'm a little worried that you may not have sufficient or up to date real-time protection on your computer, or quite possibly too much.

You've previously mentioned expired Norton software and AVG Antivirus etc.


What security software do you currently have on your computer and which of it is actively running?


:thumbsup:

Yes, I have expired Norton software, but NO AVG. I was just thinking about removing Norton, and downloading AVG.
The only security I have running on my computer CURRENTLY is . . . MalwareBytes and Windows Defender.

Get rid of Norton and run either Avast or AVG. I have been using Avast for a very long time , it auto updates sometimes three times a day. When I used AVG , I had problems with it updating. I also run SpywareBlaster and Spybot S&D.

Can you give me a good link to downloading Avast?

The Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Protection Module uses advanced heuristic scanning technology to monitor your system and provide real-time protection to prevent the installation of most new malware. This technology monitors every process and stops malicious processes before they can infect your computer. The database that defines those heuristics is updated as often as there is something to add to it. Enabling the Protection Module feature requires reqistration and purchase of a license key. When a license is purchased, Malwarebytes can also be set to update itself automatically and schedule scans automatically on a daily basis.

Note: MBAM does not act as a real-time protection scanner for every file like an anti-virus program so it is intended to be a supplement, not a substitute.

Will Avast and MalwareBytes go nicely together?

Yes they work and play well together. I see you already got the link. :thumbsup: OH and MalwareBytes only gives you real time protection with the paid version.

I downloaded it from "Download.com" the first time but they have bad software on there.

What is wrong with downloading it from the source. The company that makes the product.
