    I've just installed Malwarebytes, and it fixes the issue I was talking about here https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=346972


    However Avira jumped up and stated that there maybe a compatibility issue running these 2 together, does anyone else have both installed? If so do you have issues with one/ or both while running side by side :doubt:

    I believe that you would not have gotten that advisory warning if the two products had been installed in the reverse order. I have had MBAM PRO installed since the beginning of 2013 without issue. You might want to do mutual exclusions of each others processes. The only thing I have encountered is that MBAM's url blocker will tend to jump in first and show Avira's as having been blocked in the pop up balloon. You will also see it recorded in MBAM's logs.
