Malware antibytes program error updating
I override it's objection (TT has suggested this in the past) and the update works fine. I have been running Malwarebytes with all active protection on; however, I am getting an error on Vipre firewall which reads "Firewall protection in error". Here is the Malwarebytes info: I've used both Malwarebytes and Vipre together since 2012 (used Malwarebytes a lot longer than that).Vipre has Edge protection / Malwarebytes has WEB protection module.
I also schedule their scans for different times of day so they *never* overlap.Genetrex, I have had what seems like possibly related experience with Malwarebytes and Vipre running side by side. I had experienced my browser performance being affected, with the browser too often slowing down and coming to its knees. I had turned Web Protection on again to see if the problem was fixed in MB 3.6.1. Some websites would not download in the browser; others did just fine. I subsequently observed in the MB Forums the Malwarebytes had managed to reproduce the problem, analyze it, and created a fix via component package 1.0.508 (apparently pushed out with def updates) for affected Win 7 32 bit systems.Per perusal of the MB User Forums I found a short thread dealing with this issue. Some emails would not download in my email client; others did just fine. After checking and finding I already had component package 1.0.508 in place, I gingerly turned Web Protection back ON.With both apps having active protection enabled they seem to coexist quite peaceably.
I have always felt two opinions are better than one.
Start up Vipre and add Malwarebytes installation directory (default: C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware) and cache directory (default: C:\Users\USERNAME\App Data\Local\mbam\cache\qmlcache) to Vipres exclusion list. Open Vipre (ver.2016) , With "Antivirus" highlighted on the left, click manage from the top menu, scroll down about 2/3rds of the window, click the "Manage Excluded Items" button, click "add New Location or File" I've has some recent problems with lockups.
