Hello,

Avira should be compatible with Malwarebytes Premium and SAS. You can add exclusions of each program to each other just in case.

Hi there,

Emsisoft does have a free version, but it does not have real time protection. Emsisoft Anti-Malware is compatible with other AVs and AMs, but Emsisoft Internet Security is not compatible with other AVs.

If you only want to use it as a standalone scanner then I recommend you use Emsisoft Emergency Kit instead. It is a portable version of the Emsisoft scanning and cleaning technologies.

Hi there,

Emsisoft products can be used alongside SAS. Since Emsisoft is both an antivirus and antimalware and SAS is antimalware only, I cannot really compare them.

Ok, so its not overkill to have Avira, Emisoft, MBAM, SAS? Also, is there any other programs I need to set exclusions in like emisoft? Or do I need to set any more in Avira.

THANK YOU SO MUCH THIS WEBSITE HAS THE FASTEST RESPONCES

If you do not use the paid version of Emsisoft (which has real time protection) then exclusions are not necessary.

Excluding the Avira folder in Program Files (or Program Files (x86) on 64-bit systems) in Malwarebytes should do the trick.

If you run SAS Free as an on-demand scanner only then there is no need for exclusions.

So SAS will cause conflicts with the paid version?
