Hi again, quietman7!
Thank you for the prompt and insightful reply!
Although the marketing of Malwarebytes 3.x Premium "claims" it can be used as a replacement for an existing anti-virus, it is not an anti-virus and should run alongside your existing antivirus software without problems.
However, EAM will check for additional security software (antivirus/antimalware) during installation and advise accordingly. I have received similar warnings from EAM and just ignore it since I too have never experienced any conflicts. As such, I have never even found the need to exclude them from monitoring each other but doing so is at your own risk.
Older versions of Emsisoft Anti-Malware were designed to be compatible with almost all anti-virus programs. Newer EAM versions are not always fully compatible anymore because of changes in technology and efforts to employ exploit mitigation. That's why Emsisoft updated their Knowledgebase articles some time ago...
With the release and improvements for each new EAM version, I am finding less need for using Malwarebytes and have already removed it from one of my computers.
So you are implying that I should not exclude
them from monitoring each other, which is perfectly fine with me.
However, just a month ago I purchased a 2-year license for Malwarebytes 3 Premium, so are you also implying that I should not automatically renew
my license in December 2019?
And, consequently, are you implying that I instead should renew my license for HitmanPro.Alert, or is HMP.A still redundant?
And lastly, can I still continue to use CryptoPrevent Free, WinPatrol PLUS, SpywareBlaster Free and Unchecky, or are any of these redundant as well?
