    May I ask what MWB is? Sorry if obvious. I'm new to forum, but am looking for information on solving a problem I'm having with my Vipre Internet Security program since I updated to Windows 10. Won't scan correctly. I've been very happy with it to date, but feeling my systems vulnerable without the scan.

    I'm guessing it's Malwarebytes. It's usually shortened to MBAM though. (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware)

    Hi Leona, and welcome to TenForums!

    MWB, or MBAM as it is normally called, refers to Malwarebytes AntiMalware. They have a free and paid version. They also have an anti-exploit program as well, for mitigating zero-day attacks.

    Note that the free version of MBAM is not an "active" version, and requires being manually run, and should be used in conjunction with an active anti-virus program; at least Windows Defender.

    Thank you for all that information. I am researching other programs, but hope I can get Vipre working with Windows 10. I like Vipre and tech support is working with me too. I think Windows 10 dumped a lot of items that take up space that I didn't want or need.

    First thing to check is that Windows Defender is disabled since you can't run two AV's at once. Go to Settings/Update & Security/Windows Defender to check status. Assuming that is off, do you have Viper 2015? My Tuneup Utilities 2014 did not work but 2015 did.
    Malwarebytes has a free scan tool which can also remove anything it finds. The Pro version will be active in background and not let malware get on in the first place.

    Thank you. I do have Windows Defender turned off, also windows smart screen. I have Vipre 2015 premium version with the latest update. I just now saw on Vipre support pages that others are experiencing the same issues, and a Vipre tech wrote that they are aware of the issues and are working on it.

    I download Microsoft safety scanner, that I have used before and trust, and no problems exist to date. And Vipre is catching email spam, so I guess it will be a matter of a patch for the cookie issue.

    Anybody know if BitDefender 2015 Antivirus free and/or Total Security works on the big 10? I love Bitdefender products but after the install of windows 10, it disabled my antivirus of choice & Windows Defender became active. I will keep defender but only if MS has made it better than defender of 8.1 and old. Then it didnt fare as good as third party anti-virus in testing for malwares.

    I've used BD TS 2015 on W10. You can download W10 compatible BD products here:
