    Well I have Nortons 360 Premier on both my computers, and have Malwarebytes Pro Running right next to it, again on both my computers, been doing it for about year and a half now, with no conflicts with either program.
    You must have one of them shut down as an active scanner, which means it was money spent for no reason. Two active scanners at once has never been a good idea.

    After being informed BitDefender Free wasn't 100% compatible with Windows 10, I reinstalled my license for Norton Internet Security since I still have three months left. After doing that suffered some problems like stalled computer shutdown, the Explorer would lock up, and Chrome would take a few minutes to start. Not sure what that's all about, but as soon as I uninstalled it everything went back to normal.

    It's possible something was left behind from BitDefender that caused a conflict with Norton. AV software have been notorious for having poor uninstallers.

    I used Revo Uninstaller to remove all left over files. It's pretty good about cleansing the system.

    That's what happens when you exchange a bloated AV with other bloated AV in terms of OS integration/hindering it's operation.

    No DeaconFrost BOTH are active and already talked to the techs on Malwarebytes and they assured me that their program would run fine WITH Norton 360. Have had it setup like this on both my computers for like I said over a year and a half. No problems. They run their scans at different times, hours apart.

    Those are scheduled scans. Active scanners also check what needs to be checked, such as a downloaded file. They may have an option to make their software take a back seat if it detects another active scanner. It's never been advised to do so, and there really isn't a reason to do so. One active scanner with a passive second opinion works very well, especially if the user can also help protect the system. If it works for you, great, but it isn't something you'll see advised.

    Thanks, and on your system with Norton 360, do you also have the Free Malwarebytes running on it ??
    Thanks Cliff M.

    Nortons checks all files downloaded, also web sites I visit. If Norton misses something, then Malwarebytes will kick in. Most of the time Norton doesn't miss much, but I have seen Norton do nothing about a file, and Malwarebytes will give me a warning msg.
    THEY do work together. Most of the time Malwarebytes will take a back seat to Norton. Windows 10 does recognize only Norton in the security page as my firewall and virus/spyware protection. Does not even see Malwarebytes. No conflict.
