  1. Seems like every company is trying to improve their product some how.  I think  they know what they are doing. Almost everyone is

    behind a router today. If some of them have real logging, users would know all the junk being blocked. My problem is, are the combo boxes 

    as effective as a separate router. Sorry, I lost a lot of trust with Microsoft utilities.

    I just got a laptop that came with McAfee for a year. Talk about no settings. Only day two so have to research.

  2. Trying to get a private network setup wired desktop and one or more laptops on wireless.

    Prefer to use a work group which I set up in System > Control Panel.

    Still much to set up,but do I have to set up a firewall allow rule. I think allow port 443 in/out.

    Just got my own Comcast network and been 4-5 years since last set up.,,,Forgot stuff.


  3. Why not ?   I have been running both on two Windows 10 desktops for quite some time. I do program each to ignore the other. Have not noticed a problem. I run Zemana and EIS on this laptop.

    If you are referring to the the way MBAM said that they are a antivirus replacement when version 3 came out, that was not the

    case. MBAM and an antivirus program do not do their jobs the same way.

  4. #1 get rid of McAfee.

    #2 Emsisoft Internet Security is what I have and happy with it.

    #3 I use Malwarebytes Premium on two desktops and  Zemana Antimalware in addition to EIS on this laptop.

    #3 1/2 Malwarebytes is NOT an antivirus program or replacement for one no matter what you may hear or read.

    #4 When it comes to security additional programs are a good idea because no one program is perfect.

    #5 Never have two antivirus programs active at the same time. You can have EIS active and another for on demand scanning.

  5. You cannot run two antivirus programs at the same time, dump McAfee. Malwarebytes can be used along with EIS. I always exclude security software from another,  security program to prevent any conflicts. One license for each computer.

    security program to prevent any conflicts. One license for each computer.

    If you post what the problems are, the regular helpers here can help with those.
