    Good afternoon all,

    I was curious if anyone is using WSA antivirus with MBAM Pro (1.75 version still) and also the recent addition of MBAE free edition? Would this be a little overkill and/or overlap? I would figure that WSA antivirus blocks most exploits anyway while MBAM pro is more of a 'filter'

    Thank you for the suggestions!

    My vote would be be for running WSA alone as I do myself. I run a MBAM scan once a week and I save on my system RAM. WSA with the Windows 7 Firewall is so light. MBAM Pro in real time is not overkill but it's real strength has never been in it's webfilter. Nonetheless it's a fine setup you have and needs no changes unless wanted.

    I can only agree...ran all three together that you mentioned...eventually decided to use MBAM-Pro as an on demand scan a few times a week. I never had any conflicts running all three.

    I'm currently running WSC, with MBAE premium and MBAM V2 and everything is running well.

    I too am running this exact combination and it does, indeed, run quite well. :)
