[ Resolved] Off topic It's all your fault!
« on: May 28, 2011, 05:09:15 AM »
To the following...DavidR, Polonus, Essexboy, SafeSurf, Schmidthouse, Tech, Pondus, et al.
With most, if not all suggesting that I upgrade to AIS, SAS Pro, I did both. My next project is to upgrade to MBAM Pro. With each and every upgrade I am gaining one more layer of protection. My thanks go out to each and everyone of you. I am truly sorry if I left anyone name off the above list. I have come a long way since I joined the forum. Thank you!  :)

You are very welcome.  :)  We all learn the longer we are here if not from each other then from the informative posts from many others here on the forum.  I've always been a believer in layers of protection.  Thank you again.

Para,
are you sure they encouraged you to use BOTH SAS PRO and MBAM PRO?  I could see supplementing avast with EITHER SAS PRO or MBAM PRO (your decision which ONE of these two), but keeping the other only in its free (on-demand scanner) form.
My understanding is that there's a lot of duplication... and potential conflict... in resident protection in using the PRO versions of both SAS and MBAM ---- it's NOT simply a matter of "more is better".   In the case of duplicative programs, "more" will at the very least result in slowdowns, and at the very worst, in conflicts/crashes.

EDIT:  I see that jadinolf is using both, so I guess I may have to defer to his first-hand experience...

You will find the more you are on this forum the more you learn. Neither MBAM nor SAS will conflict in any way, shape or form with avast. I would caution you to stay away from Ad-Aware and SpyBot S&D. And from what I have read Zone Alarm may cause a conflict with avast. It isn't a duplication of service it's the right "kind" of layers that counts.

It isn't an issue of conflicting with avast, but two resident anti-spy/malware applications installed. The same general rule would apply for those as we apply to resident anti-virus applications, only on installed.

I have avast! plus SAS Pro and MBAM free (because I had SAS Pro before MBAM came out) on this system. On my other system I have avast and MBAM Pro, no SAS, never got round to installing it and if I do it will only be the SAS free version, to avoid possible conflict.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.1.6049 (build 23.1.7883.774) UI 1.0.746/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

DavidR, I found that having SAS Pro caused a conflict went back to SAS Free but upgraded to MBAM Pro.
SAS Pro left behind traces that forced me to do a major registry clean-up, not to mention a registry defrag. All's well now.  :)
