    Bitdefender and Malwarebytes


    I installed Bitdefender Free 2017 this morning and it said it was incompatible with Malwarebytes 3. Does BD do most of what MBM did or do I need to install another program?

    I have disabled Windows Defender for reasons mentioned in this thread.

    Bitdefender Free 2017 and the latest version of Malwarebytes 3 work well together on my system.

    I use the paid version of Bitdefender Total Security 2017, and do not use anything else and feel that it has everything covered, I still have a valid Malwarebytes Pro licence, but do not use it since the total debacle that is MalwareBytes 3 was released and caused me to have BSODs

    Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is regularly the No1 rated anti-malware solution, and has the same features as Malwarebytes plus others, ( including Mobile Devices), so I don't miss Malwarebytes at all

    yea I can't afford the paid one currently so trying out the free version. I know it's reputation, but I was wondering if the free version is the same and you don't need MBM. I know that the free version uses the same core engine as the paid version.

    Your above article is outdated.....Bitdefender free introduced an updated version in December last year.
    I use it with the separate Mbam Anti Malware plus Mbam Anti-Exploit.

    Thanks for the update

    It's difficult to find a complete comparison due to them having too many versions such a good selection. I just use the Full 10 device Total security which was only about £40 a year and It covers all my devices PC's Laptops, and mobile, (tablet and Phones)

    I set it up on my one system and it's broadcast to the rest - set it to autopilot and forget it, I check the weekly report and investigate any warnings I get, not had many as my surfing is done as safely as I can make it
