Malware and AV software compatibility.

Please settle a small disagreement between myself and a friend ... Are MSE and Malwarebytes and/or any other Malware programs compatible when installing and running on the same computer. Thankyou!

Yes MSE and Malwarebytes will run together

the usual rule is One antivirus and as much antimalware as you like.

two antivirus programs may conflict as they detect each others virus blocking signatures.

Many thanks for your input, now perhaps my friend will believe me as this is exactly what I told her!

Doesn't Malwarebytes premium, the paid for Version, have an Antivirus built in?

I am using Malwarebytes Pro and no it is Malware only. I use MSE as my AV protection - have not had any problems with either.
