    Can someone enlighten this non-techie if one can run multiple products that use a WFP driver?

    I've seen some seemingly conflicting statements around this e.g.
    https://support.emsisoft.com/topic/19289-compatibility-with-malwarebytes-anti-malware/
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/malwarebytes-anti-ransomware-beta.383333/page-9#post-2568231

    I have more than one program that uses a WFP driver, namely Adguard, MBAM (albeit with RT components off), Networx, and depending on the machine, EIS (EAM currently does not have a WFP driver).

    Is this a no-no, or does it depend on what each driver actually does?

    Yes you can, I'm running multiple programs with a WFP driver. SpyShelter and Cisco VPN.
    I do have an active issue with SpyShelter (see the SpyShelter thread) and accessing shared folders over Cisco VPN, but otherwise both run fine.
