I am just trying the 14 day free trial of the full MWB. Is it OK to run this alongside Kaspersky AV? Thanks.

Why bother? I run Kaspersky and the free version of Malwarebytes never finds anything. I cannot believe the the full version will find anything else. I don't know if the real time element of the pro version would conflict with Kaspersky or not.

0835 Woolwell Thanks. I agree with your comments

I think you need the free version that is active only when scanning

It certainly works fine with my Kaspersky and did find a couple of things when I ran it for the first time

I'd be inclined not to run the active version at the same time as any virus scanner

I have run the free version of Malwarebytes for years and can't remember it finding anything, I don't know if that's because there's nothing to find or some other program has picked it up before.

I do roam around some dodgy sites sometimes so must have been at risk but never had anything show anywhere except cookies.
