G'day nastybloodlust, and Welcome to BC

 

Malwarebytes (MBAM) is not an AV...it is an anti malware.

 

having this installed with something like Kapersky or Bitdefender or Emsisoft is a good idea.  Personally I use Bitdefender Free

 

Keep it simple. One AV.(bitdefender, Avast, avira, etc combined with MBAM is a good combination.

 

The next best thing to have after that is good surfing habits.......watch what you click on

 

Install an adblocker in your browser as well

 

Only 1 AV program should be installed at any time. They tend to "fight" with each other and this leads to some weird happenings.

 

Viruses are a specific type of malware designed to replicate and spread.....

 

malware is a broad term used to describe all sorts of unwanted or malicious code....potentially unwanted programs etc

I would also add - make sure your " Status Bar "is shown within your Browser ,its usually above the Taskbar within the browser ,  that way anything you highlight eg: url with your cursor or pointer will tell you where it is going to take you { The URL } or if it is an .exe file , or a bad link.

I find this a good practise before you click something , to have some knowledge first of what it is and where it will take you.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not an anti-virus program nor should it be used as a replacement. Malwarebytes does not act as a real-time protection scanner for every file like anti-virus software so it is intended to be a supplement, not a substitute. The following quote is a statement from the Malwarebytes Team.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not meant to be a replacement for antivirus software. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a complementary but essential program which detects and removes zero-day malware and "Malware in the Wild". This includes malicious programs and files, such as viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, dialers, spyware, and rogue applications that many antivirus programs do not detect or cannot fully remove. 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.

Larry Tate

A similar statement is in this Malwarebytes HelpDesk Article: Does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware replace antivirus software?

 

In simplistic terms, Anti-virus programs generally scan for infectious malware which includes viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkis and bots.
Anti-Malware programs generally scan for adware, spyware, unwanted toolbars, browser hijackers, potentially unwanted programs and potentially unsafe applications which are classified differently and do not fall into any of those categories...that is the primary reason some anti-virus programs do not detect or remove them.
