Is it okay to run malwarebytes anti malware trial version, real time protection alongside an existing anti virus ?

Would they conflict?
I have MBAM free version but there is an option to use the trial pro version which is real time protection. I am just wondernig if real time protection would oonflict with my microsoft security essentials anti virus ?

They will work good together. What you do not want is more than one anti-virus program running.

I forgot to mention that I am using the PRO version of Malwarebytes and it works great. It has alerted me a few times. You would not go wrong using it. Sometimes the website www.newegg.com has it on sale.

The Protection Module is not intrusive as it utilizes few system resources and should not conflict with other scanners or anti-virus programs. If any conflicts between Malwarebytes and another security program are reported, suggested solutions are usually provided in the Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions, FAQs thread.
