Hi all!

 

For comprehensive multi-layered real-time AV/AM security on MS Win 10 Pro 64-bit, I have Emsisoft Anti-Malware Pro, SpywareBlaster Free, WinPatrol PLUS, HitmanPro.Alert with CryptoGuard, CryptoPrevent Free, along with Windows Firewall.

 

I used to have Malwarebytes 3.0 Free for on-demand scanning, but had to uninstall it because it occasionally corrupted my Windows User Profile, and this issue has already been reported by several other members at their Support Forum, here (but still not fixed).

 

I know about the recommendation for users like me to revert back to version 2, but I did not want to, because I have read that this version displays notifications in SysTray encouraging users to upgrade to version 3.0, and besides, this would only be temporary anyway.

 

So, now I am looking for a durable alternative, and hence, my question is;

 

Is Zemana Anti-Malware Free compatible with HitmanPro.Alert/CryptoGuard?

 

Thank you very much in advance!

 

Regards,

midimusicman79

Zemana is designed to be used as only a scanner. No real time protection. It's only free for 15 days.

...Is Zemana Anti-Malware Free compatible with HitmanPro.Alert/CryptoGuard?...

As far as I know it is compatible. Since Zemana free is just a stand-alone scanning tool there shouldn't be any conflicts.

I used to have Malwarebytes 3.0 Free for on-demand scanning, but had to uninstall it because it occasionally corrupted my Windows User Profile, and this issue has already been reported by several other members at their Support Forum, here (but still not fixed).

 

That was fixed in CU4 in addition to that we are on CU4.1.

Hi, buddy215, quietman7 & Porthos!

Thank you all for the prompt and insightful replies! :)

I have now tried ZAM Free, and it seems to work well, although it flagged three Norwegian Firefox search pages as Suspicious Browser Settings, which I all reported as Safe. :thumbup2:

I know that ZAM Free is based on HitmanPro.Alert, so I actually declined the time-limited Premium Licence Trial offer (featuring real-time protection) while installing in order to not take any unnecessary chances. :whistle:

I stand corrected on that, however it has been quite a while since I still used MB 3.0, which obviously was before Creators Update as well as CU4/CU4.1, but that is certainly nice to hear, though. :thumbup2:
 
And, as matter of fact, I have now reconsidered using MB 3.0 as my primary on-demand anti-malware scanner. :busy:
 
Thank you very much for the help! :) The issue has been successfully resolved! :thumbup2:
