FS Protection PC Release 179 and Malwarebytes 3.0
I've been having real problems since upgrading my Malwarebytes to their new version, which happened to coincide with the new release of FSP. Are these two still compatible?
Firstly, MWB refused to start, and I kept getting an error message "Cannot connect to service". One way to get it to start was to restart the running service (right click My Computer > Manage > Services), and then it started, but was 'clunky', to say the least.
I went on to the MWB forums, and lots of people have been having the same problem, which has been present since the beta versions, so I don't even know how this version got to public release - nevertheless, some people found that adding MWB to their Anti-Virus / Security software scanning exceptions list alleviated the issue to some extent, in that at least MWB would now start when it was supposed to.
I therefore added MWB to the Exclusions list in Deepguard and whilst MWB does now start, my machine runs like it's wading through treacle, and I can't even start some applications.
The last version of MWB was compatible with FSP, and both seemed to run happily side by side. The difficulty I have now is that as both products have updated virtually simultaneously, I have no idea which one is causing the problems.
Has anyone else had difficulties with these two products? I'm reluctant to remove either of them, as they both offer different types of protection, but I would happily remove MWB if FSP would offer the same protection against PUPs, Adware, and some spyware which MWB has done.
