    AVG Anti-Virus 2013 compatible with Malwarebytes?
    « on: September 11, 2012, 10:14:01 PM »
    I have used AVG Anti-Virus Free for years but the newest 2013 version no longer offers Identity Protection.  I want to maintain a high level of security while web surfing and paying my bills online. So I have decided to pay and switch to AVG Anti-Virus 2013. This antivirus program offers everything AVG Free does plus it adds identity protection, a firewall, and anti-malware capability. My question is: if I install AVG Anti-Virus 2013 with built-in anti-malware protection, can I still use Malwarebytes' AntiMalware? Or would those two programs be incompatible. Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.

    Install MBAM but only use it for the occasional scan. It's not necessary to have it scanning full-time.
