How do you set Malwarebytes exclusions in Norton. I have Norton Internet Security v 17.8.0.5, and am running Malwarebytes (pro) for the realtime scans.

Ever since installing Malwarebytes (pro), my system occasionally runs extremely slow, with the screen freezing for minutes at a time. I don't want to remove Norton if I don't have to, and this was suggested to me in another forum topic.

Thank you,

There may be issues (such as freezing, loss of performance, etc), with the following anti-virus programs and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware real-time protection:

E - McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.x
F - Trend Internet Security Pro
H - AVG Anti-Virus
I - Microsoft Security Essentials on Windows XP
J - Norton 360 version 4

If you are experiencing such issues, please read the appropriate section in Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions which explains how to add file exclusions in order to aid in compatibility.

Thank you, quietman7. I added the exclusions per Section J for Norton 360. The NIS screens aren't quite the same but close enough to know where to go. So far so good. But I want to give it a few days before I'm satisfied it's fixed. -Econguy
