  1. Malware bytes compatibility with BitDefender


    Recently upgraded to Bit Defender VPN via support service who in turn deleted existing Malware Bytes protection on the premise that you should not have two security systems on the same unit. Cyber world tells me BD will not update if MB is installed which might explain why the BD icon disappeared from the desk top and appeared to drop BD protection as the few intrusion warnings came from MB. Support Geek Squad assured me MB was not necessary after VPN and full BD program was installed. I'm of the understanding that MB has another layer of protection that BD doesn't?

    Hello Bob

    Thanks for posting Microsoft Community. I'm Marcos Independent Advisor.

    Is Malware Bytes free version or Premiun?

    If it is the Malware Bytes free version there should be no conflict, because they won't be doing the same work.

    Malware Bytes free version runs as a periodic scanner, looking for malware, Windows Defender will be running as a real-time protection.

    I suggest you testing both it should work well with Defender.

    If you have Premiun Malware Bytes then It is not recommended to run more than one real-time Anti-Malware product. You should only chose to use one of them.

    Hope it helps you let me know if you need further assistance.

    Regards.
