Have been happily using KIS and MBAM Pro (pre 3) and MBAE for some time.
Against better judgement (waiting for comments and bug fixes), I upgraded to MB Premium 3 . I have MB as ALLOWED in KIS. Started having issues where often a real-time protection component would fail to start. Could only correct with laptop reboot.
MB tech support is good and responded quickly- recommended their uninstall tool followed by a clean install. All went ok for a few days. then while reading email. Web Protection component shut off. Another reboot.
Next tech support email presented the problem as a conflict with KIS (duplication?). MB support recommended that I open KIS and:
-disable advanced disinfection
-disable rootkit scan
-delay Kaspersky startup
Don't feel very comfortable with this. The new MB version 3 is a new kid on the block with compatibility issues (I guess due to taking over some Suites tasks) even though they clam they can run alongside other security apps. Not sure how it fits in with Suites...Or do you now forgo suites and go simple AV + MB 3? But then you miss out on other protection.
Is there a fix? Is there a way to revert back to an older MBAM version along with old Anti-Exploit (and is it recommended? Also, re: AE's how does Hitman Pro.A compare lately?). I run Zemana on demand also. But the comparison tests that I've seen showed fairly good results for both with an equal amount of nasties getting through on both.
Actually, with clean install only had the one occurrence (so far) not the frequent issues. Any reason not to leave things as is (even with overlapping functions)?
Any recommendations? Was very happy with both MBAM & KIS.
