  1. Wow - that's pretty eye-opening. Thanks for the follow up and post itman.
  2. Alright, you've convinced me - although I'm still baffled by the contrasting testimony I'm getting between the two forums. Since I bit the bullet and purchased ESET (my 1st commercial product in several years), I'll give it the best chance to perform for me, and will uninstall MBAM - at least for now. Thank you all for your help and the time you took to explain things to me.
  3. I'm not sure when "before" was, but I've been using the premium version of MBAM for around 10 years give or take and in that time it has always had a real time scanner, which was the biggest draw of upgrading. Per MBAM forum user exile360 who has over 27K posts: "With regards to real-time protection, the protection in Malwarebytes functions differently from a traditional AV like ESET. It does not use on-access scanning to check files when they are created or accessed on disk; instead, Malwarebytes looks at each process/thread that attempts to enter memory to determine if it is maliciou
  4. From the earliest I can recall learning about MBAM, they have always prided themselves on being sufficiently different from other AV products that they can run alongside with no issue and to date I have not had any issue with this. However, point made. Thank you for your help.
  5. When you said to force an update, this is what I found that involved the registry: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/Windows/en-US/c55e3f7c-d032-42ea-9171-39a34379e7f5/force-update-to-mbam-server Sounds pretty useless at this point. But in all fairness, MBAM has worked great for me for a very long time, and it's ESET that I'm struggling with and thinking that perhaps I shouldn't have purchased... I did find a user guide to download.
  6. Sooo, I would still like to know how I can allow an individual app thru the firewall - preferably without going into "interactive" mode.
  7. Before I do that (which seems to involve editing the registry), let me ask you this: in your opinion, does ESET cover everything MBAM does? Is there any real value in running both apps?
  8. No MBAM hasn't been involved. I've turned off the real time protection, but changed no other settings (see attached). Is this correct?
  9. @Marcos, I am aware of potential conflicts with protection s/w, but I was assured that MBAM and ESET would work together nicely before I made the purchase. Additionally, I Googled the question and found positive responses for MBAM/ESET on same computer. Have I been advised in error? I am totally unfamiliar with ESET and don't know how to pause the firewall. Is there a user guide? @itman, after having the MBAM install issue, I did find the interactive mode setting and tried it out, but it was very noisy, and I didn't know what to allow and what not, so I reverted to automatic. I
  10. Hello, I've just purchased a 3-year sub to ESET Internet Security (ver 13.2.150) for a new computer after having been away from most commercial products for some years. I also run MBAM Premium, which I installed before ESET with no problem. But MBAM wants to update, and can't install the update. The only thing I can think of is that ESET is blocking it. Can someone help me resolve this issue?
