Greetings sgisme and Welcome to the Forums,
Please do this:
Open Microsoft Security Essentials. Click the Settings
In the left side pane, please locate the link labeled "Excluded files and locations" and click on it, then find the Browse
button in the right pane. There, please navigate to and select "ProgramsFiles (x86)\Malwarebytes'Anti-Malware".
Once you've found and selected that folder, please click the Add
button. This will instruct MSE to ignore any activity that MBAM wants to engage in and prevents any struggles that MBAM may be having with MSE.
Save these changes by clicking the button at the bottom of the MSE GUI, then close the program. Reboot at this point to properly record those changes to the hard disk. When the system comes back up, please do nothing for several minutes until the system is stable.
Open MBAM and click the Ignore List
tab at the top. Click the Add
button at the bottom and navigate to:
C:\ProgramFiles\Microsoft Security Client
...selecting this folder adds it to MBAM's ignore list as well.
Now close the application and reboot once more. When the system comes back up, please allow it to stabilize, then open MBAM again and click the Settings
tab. Locate the options you want to activate and place a check in the appropriate box.
Next, click the Protection
tab and again, make sure any options you want to activate are checked. Close the application and reboot one more time to properly record these changes to the hard disk.
When the system comes back up, MBAM and MSE should at least now be performing as best friends. Let us know if MBAM is now able to be configured to your liking. Thanks!
By the way, that combofix log isn't so alarming but it does indicate that it's from the second time you scanned with the combofix utility. The log from your first scan might be more telling. Would you be able to produce that log for us?
