Windows 10: Malwarebytes Premium and AVG Fee Antivirus Combo

    Malwarebytes Premium and AVG Fee Antivirus Combo

    My Norton Security subscription is close to expiring, and although I do like it, I'm also an experimenter. I was considering using the currently installed Windows firewall, along with Malwarebytes Premium and AVG, running together. Do you think the protection will be adequate? Or, what about Malwarebytes/Windows Defender combo? Or, will malwarebytes turn Defender off?

    It does NOT turn WD protection off. However, you may want to do some forum reading about MBAM - having some problems at this time.

    Yes, I've read those issues and decided to leave MB Premium alone for now. I do like the free addition, though.

    "what about Malwarebytes/Windows Defender combo? Or, will malwarebytes turn Defender off?"

    That's exactly what I use and they run side by side. MBAM Premium includes active web page monitoring, anti-ransomware and anti-exploit, as well as Hyper Scan.

    I may just stick with my Norton suite.It's done a good job thus far. I'll use my MBAM Free for occasional scans. It does a good job there. I get into these moods where I want to experiment. If I had a 2nd PC I'd do just that!
