Is Emsisoft Anti-Malware compatible with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've searched through forums to find the answer to my question but haven't been satisfied with what I have found/ read so far.

So I just wanted to ask.. I was running AVG with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Full version) until I came across Carey Holzman's video on youtube about Emsisoft etc. So i got rid of AVG and completely replaced it with Emsisoft Anti-Malware. I love it so far and decided to buy it after my free months trial but I also really like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. So I just wanted to know am i safe enough to run them both side by side? Again... I have a paid full version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware and full paid version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware that you can see from the picture I have included below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just to let you know that EIS will not compatible with MBAM because of the drivers conflict between these two. Since I see you are using Zemana and MBAM, I definitely will say drop MBAM and use Zemana because it lighter, and good file protection.

I dont know about MBAM haves problema whith his driver maybe they have to solve this. As in my case  i dont know if semana antimalware are compatible whith emsi, i am testing for now no crash no interventions whith one and other program, all work ok. Zemana at the same of mbam Premium detects files on execute, emsi detects files on the fly before they was wirte in your disk or in the read and modification (by default and recomended for peromance cuestions). In theory Zemana and emsi or mbam and emsi will be compatible if you not are an experienced user . Just use emsi and the malwarebytes free versión  i see is very rare mbam catch something who emsi dont i test emsi and give my Word  you are safe.  I tell you something What do you thijng have to do when MBAM or emsi tries to quarintine same file or quarintine between they? its acomplex problem and if you dont know how to do exclusoins you maybe have several troubles
