MWB and Avast
« on: October 03, 2018, 05:29:57 PM »
Had to get a new computer as the hard drive failed in the old one.  So have Windows 10 now; it is fully updated.   I have the newest version of Avast Free running on here with no issues.  I know in the past, there was a problem with Avast and Malwarebytes playing well together on the same machine.  Will the free version of MWB and free version of Avast play together nicely?    I have searched online and I find conflicting answers on this.  I don't want to mess anything up!   Thanks in advance for any advice you may have for me.

I am using the free version of MalwareBytes for scans, and Avast Internet Security without issue.  As long as the paid version of MalwareBytes isn't running resident there should be no conflict.
AMD A6-5350M APU with Radeon HD Graphics, 8.0GB RAM, Win7 Pro SP1 64bit, IE11
i7-3610QM 2.3GHZ, 8.0GB Ram,  Nvidia GeForce GT 630M 2GB, Win7 Pro SP1 64bit, IE 11
Common to both: Avast Premium Security 19.7.2388, WinPatrol Plus, SpywareBlaster 5.5, Opera 12.18, Firefox 68.0.2, MBam Free, CCleaner

Thank you so much!  I will just be using the free version for scans.  I appreciate your time.
