Windows 10: Is Malwarebytes Premium Redundant With What I Have Going On?

    Is Malwarebytes Premium Redundant With What I Have Going On?

    I have used MB free for some years now. I will use it to scan mostly downloads. I have also always had an AV or Internet Security app running in real time. Right now I have Bitdefender Total Security. I also have Acronis True Image installed which has it's own real time security running in real time. This morning when I did my weekly scan with MB free if offered me an update which I thought was just going to be an update to the free version but instead it gave me another 14 day free premium trial. I rarely hear bad things about MB but I am of the opinion that the premium version might just be redundant. What do you all think? TIA.

    The main difference between the free version and pro is that the pro version runs live full time. Well worth the price. I don't know this but they may be ending the free version you would have to contact their tech support to find out for sure or to reset you back to the free version

    You have to many AV programs running, Bit Defender and Acronis drop one or both.
    Personally, I would go with Windows Defender and Malwarebytes Premium. Mambam Premium is real time protection and is well worth the money.
