    After studying my other postings and following other threads, I have tentatively decided to use the following together: Avira Free, MBAM Pro, and Private Firewall--running all in real-time. Each of these has their own HIPS components. Would there be any conflicts or compatibility issues, particularly with the HIPS? Are there any specific settings requirements to make them work together well?

    Thank you for the help.

    I don't know about MBAM Pro, but I've run Private Firewall with Avira Free without any problems....

    I was reading on the Malwarebytes forum that as long as you use the exclusions for each program you should be fine running both together according to the Malwarebytes staff
