Do mbam.exe & MsMpEng.exe conflict?MsMpEng.exe
Posted 15 August 2012 - 05:47 PM
First time poster - long time user. When you've been using a product for a year but never logged into the forum that usually means it's a pretty good product.
I have Microsoft Security Essentials running along side Malwarebytes (1.62) & have noticed a few times in the past month that MsMpEng seems to be knocking mbam.exe out of the way (according to the Resource Monitor) while mbam.exe is performing a quick scan. This only happens right after start-up. I will see mbam's scan stop & "not responding" msgs in Resource Montior & MSE appears to be very busy doing something. The mbam scan does eventually finish in 3 or so minutes.
In fact it seems like MSE is very interested in just about anything MB or any other process is doing. Setup.exe is running & MSE is busy then too. Also Googleupdater & a few other tasks I can't remember right now. Perhaps this is good? MSE is just doing it's job.
If I wait 5 mins & run the mbam scan again it runs in 30 or 40 seconds without any problems. Perhaps I should wait 10 mins after the system is started before running any scans. Just curious if there are any known issues with MSE & MB running together? Is Avast the prefered primary anti-virus/anti-spyware with Malwarebytes?

Please read the FAQ link below if you are having any problems with M.S.E. and Malwarebytes > Section I -
This is very unusual, as many members use MSE as their preferred Antivirus program without problems.
I have used both for several years now and never had any problems.
Just make sure that when you schedule the daily scans, that they are at least 2 hours apart -
Thank You -

Will follow the instructions in section I for sure. Failed to mention that the PC did freeze & was just on it's way back up. Pretty important info to leave out I imagine.
Did just find this in the event log: Not sure if this caused the crash or was a symptom of but the system stopped responding @ 3:52:

Not everyone has to enter exceptions for MSE, but it sure can't hurt to enter them. I always enter mine to be on the safe side....
Also your antivirus software will also spike up a bit, due to that fact that files are being accessed by Malwarebytes.
I could be wrong about that but if I am I am sure someone on the staff/development team will correct me.
