First Malwarebytes Pro will clash with Mcafee guaranteed. MWB pro has a real;time scanner and when it and Mcafee try to check teh same file things happen. The free 1 works fine with Mcafee IF you install it after Mcafee as Mcafee objects to it being present.
Are you saying that MWB alone is better than both together? MWB is a backup seebelow from 1 of the MWB developers
· As far as why MBAM is very good at dealing with this infection, that is simple.MBAM is designed to be very good at dealing with malware that the AVs seem to be having problems with. I do not spend my time making MBAM detect millions of infections that any decent AV already detects as MBAM is DESIGNED to work alongside antivirus software, not replace it. A huge chunk of the research that goes into MBAM revolves around what we see making it into HJT threads as the vast majority of these threads involve antivirus software that was in some waybypassed.
Lets settle this now and avoid any further misinformation. MBAM is now a very good backup to any antivirus software and will only get better in the future. MBAM will NEVER add antivirus abilities to its core app and is always advised to be used WITH antivirus software. We actually get this question a lot in the forums and I assure you that we always say :
"No, MBAM can't replace your existing antivirus software and is not designed to."
Try a couple of the scanners mentioned here especially stinger and getsusp.
Did the registered version actually find anything? I thought both detect the same just the pro is doind it in real time.
You got XP? Also by Mcafee host you mean Mcafee host (mchost.exe) or mcsvhost?
Finally what are your PC specs. Cpu and ram?
