Can I run both Norton IS and Malwarebytes?
#1
I run Norton Internet Security.
Can I also run malwarebytes also; or will the two clash?

The Malwarebytes website shows that Malwarebytes is compatible with both Norton 360 and Symantec Endpoint Protection. Both use the same technology as Norton Internet Security (just a different feature set), so you can expect it to be compatible as well.

The problem of course, is that Malwarebytes will not eliminate a Norton infection.

I run Malware Bytes and Bitdefender on my laptop without any problems. I have too many issues with Norton over the years with it hogging resources. BTW, also run Bitdefender on my Mac. Told many years ago (by a Symantec rep even) that Norton and Macs don't play well together (even on their Mac product).

Norton is a matter of habit. We ran it in the SCIFs.

Comcast provides Norton to its customers free. I used it until Norton started treating everything as a threat. I finally had to remove it just to let the computer operate.

I have always wondered why anyone outside a corporate network would pay for firewalls and anti-malware tools when Microsoft has a reasonable fair set of tools that come for free.

Respectfully, nothing is truly free from Comcast.

Microsoft did not always do so. Plus, nothing idiot proofs a system/network.

Microsoft has a habit of abandoning their tools in a heartbeat. Used to use Microsoft Money. Had to go back to quicken which is the ultimate POS. Still doesn't work right after all these years. Netmeeting - There are better products now but when they changed it to Windows Live (I think), it never worked right and we scrambled to find ways to get netmeeting to work with 7. Win 7 and 8 users have a decent builtin DVD player. That will go away in 10. Just as well, VLC is a better product but why make users go 3rd party... Bet MS will buy them out and proceed to ruin it. Skype used to be good until MS bought it. Now I won't even run the junk anymore. It's bad when you have to use 3rd party programs to replace something builtin to 7. I dumped IE years ago in favor of firefox. Will never go back to IE or whatever it will be called (edge?) in the next version. Stinks that I have to use IE for work.

Virtual Windows XP Mode was probably the best Windows 7 upgrade they released. I still use it for the Cisco ASDM.
