I'm jumping into this topic with a query and a comment.  My comment relates to Bit Defender.  I have been unable to completely remove all files even using the BD tool.  It trashes my internet connection, and I have tried a myriad of recommended actions in conjunction with experts in another forum.  I have reached the point where BD no longer interferes with my computer, but many files remain in a folder that cannot be removed, as BD refuses to acknowledge my administrator access.  I have grown to hate BD and would never recommend it to anyone.
My query relates to using Malwarebytes concurrently with Panda free version, which seems to be infinitely preferable to BD.  Panda tell me that it will probably be OK to do so.  Does anyone have a more definitive answer?

Malwarebytes is designed to run along side your antivirus so you can use it with Panda.

The best thing to do is try it.

Does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware replace antivirus software?

...It is important to note that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware works well and should run alongside antivirus software without conflicts. In some rare instances, exclusions may need to be set for your specific antivirus product to achieve the best possible system performance.

If any conflicts between Malwarebytes and another security program are reported, suggested solutions are usually provided in these FAQ topics:.
As for Bitdefender...I suggest you check with their support team.
