    @bro67, it does make the system safer, running multiple protection software has a greater chance of protecting the system. No multiple AV's, but 1 AV and 1 AM.
    Yes there is a chance of conflicts, but then you simply configure both to skip the files of each other. Although I never have seen that on all dozens of machines I have configured.

    If you want to believe that you can run 1 protection software at a time, fine but you won't convince me that running more is bad and won't increase protection and stuff

    To the OP, unfortunately I have no idea what could cause that, I haven't been able to replicate your problem.

    I agree the first point of security is the user and his or her behaviour and browsing habits.

    But at the same time, having multi-layered, non-conflicting protection is great advice.

    Such as running an AV, MBAM and MBAE.

    Yes it is coded to work alongside another anti-malware/anti-virus product. That still does not stop it from another a/v program conflicting with it.

    This has been discussed before, the discussion is over. Running both Malwarebytes Windows Defender ? - Windows 10 Forums
    That topic mentions no conflicts - just how to potentially prevent it, as it JUST WORKS anyway

    Sounds like we got a little off topic here....

    You can run MBAM with other security products thanks to the Chameleon engine used, however most other products are not happy to run together and Defender will turn off when it see's another AV installed other than MBAM.

    Best security practices say it is pointless to use the same security products which utilize the same scan types such as signature based or heuristic.

    To answer the OP I have two questions...

    1. What is your UAC set at?

    2. Have you edited any of the group policies?
