Do I need an Anti-Malware with NOD32?

1) Is NOD32 Antivirus enough or does one need an Anti-Malware also such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware?

 

2) Is NOD32 compatible with MBAM Pro if they're both running actively or is this not recommended?

 

3) If one chooses to run MBAM PRO + NOD32, would this cause a slowdown on the system?

Hello ML. Our good friend Arakasi posted a nice write up over a year ago that you should review.

BTW since then, I do run MBAM Prem (aka PRO) and ESS both in real time without any issues.

Do you notice any slowdowns and did you setup exclusions for both?

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is great product but if you are using well-known antivirus software you don't need Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
I usually recommend to use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free-edition with other well-known antivirus software (ex: ESET, Kaspersky, Emsisoft, Windows defender(w8.1, w10 built-in)...etc)

I do not notice any slowdown. As far as exclusions, I am currently not excluding on either end...you can take a look at this.

I did use exclusions previously, but since reading the post by Marcos I stopped and have not seen any ill effects.

The following is from Firefox at the MBAM forum about exclusions.

So try it without and add them if you need to.

Well, some may disagree, see here: "We have just been hit by the CryptoWall/CryptoLocker virus...ESET did highlight and delete the some of the encryption html/txt files, but the PC that was infected did end up with encrypted files ending in .aaa.I had to run MalwareBytes in order to remove the offending file..."
