Yes, they should work together just fine, especially if you set exclusions as described in Section K of our FAQ.

Hi, Tinman977:

[[EDIT: OOPS! Exile360 beat me to it. Well, here are the stepwise instructions, if you need them...]] :)

Yes, it will work fine.

MBAM Clean Installation Instructions:

NOTE: You need to be logged in as an administrator.

1. Temporarily disable your Anti-Virus (AV) and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here. (Note: Ignore any promos or ads for other software/products at the mirror sites; and there is no fee to download MBAM Free.)

Note: You will need to activate the program using the license ID & key you were sent via email, if you are using the PRO version.

2. Launch MBAM (and set the Protection and Registration, if you are using the PRO version).

3. Go to the UPDATE tab, if not done during installation, and check for updates.

4. Restart the computer (and, if you are using the PRO version, verify that the MBAM icon is in the system tray).

5. Set up any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications. You may use the guides posted in the FAQs here, or see below for the specific Avast instructions.

6. Restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications.

7. Add the program folder(s) for your AV and FW to MBAM's "Ignore List".(Let us know if you need help with this.)

8. Set up your scheduled updates & scheduled scans (this only applies to the PRO version). Scheduler help is available here.

9. Run an MBAM Quick Scan.
