i recently was having problems with every part of my laptop it seems and my AVG said all was good but a friend suggested Avast and he was a professor for ITT. I loaded that and Malware Bytes then upgraded to the pay version of both and ran the scans which Malware found several trojans ect. Since then neither has not a one virus or anything in the quarantine areas but constantly I do see a window at the bottom right saying Malware has successfully blocked a incoming threat. when I check the logs here is what I get and it is blocking a outgoing port IP but at the end says Avast.exe are they conflicting with each other?? Please help me determine what's wrong.
Thank you

Simple answer to your question.. yes they are conflicting with eachother. It is only recommend to have ONE live scanner on your computer. I would suggest removing AVG, Avast and keeping the paid version of MBam as your antivirus since it provides active security.

Yeah they probably are conflicting. My recommendation is you kick avg out and keep avast and MBAM.

@Mark: Ummm...NO. MBAM is NOT a replacement for a resident Anti-Virus, it is a supplement. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic380441.html/page__p__2141871#entry2141871

No single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear. Each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes malware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a multi-layered defense using several anti-spyware products (including an effective firewall) to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense, safe computing and safe surfing habits provides the most complete protection.
