Windows 8 can I use Malwarebytes also

  swapper 10:03 28 Mar 2014

Hello, My friend is using Windows 8.1(?) which has Defender installed. She has been told that she should NOT be using Malwarebytes also as it conflicts with Defender. Any thoughts on this please? Thanks

Malwarebytes will work fine on W 8.1

Personally I would scrap Defender as its the bottom of the list as far as antimalware progs are concerned.

I would also suggest that the MalwareBytes is the latest version, because a new release was issued very recently, and updates might be required.

Yes it is version 2 and is Win 8.x compatible. Still need an anti virus program though.
