Brokering a truce between McAfee, Malwarebytes; no need to subject yourself to Windows 8

By Steve Alexander






JewishWorldReview.com | (MCT) QUESTION: You frequently recommend using the Malwarebytes PC security program, but when I try, my McAfee security software blocks me. Why?

—Edna Clayton, Lakeland, Fla.

ANSWER: Some versions of the McAfee security software see Malwarebytes as an intruder that wants too much access to your PC.

You'll need to adjust the McAfee software to exclude the files that make up the Malwarebytes program. This frees Malwarebytes from McAfee's scrutiny and gives it a pass to work on your computer. (Note that this is a good idea only for the free version of Malwarebytes that runs just when you click on it. Never run two full-time security programs at once because at worst they will conflict and at a minimum they will slow your PC.)

To add Malwarebytes to McAfee's exceptions, click the Windows "Start" button, choose "All programs," then "McAfee," then "VirusScan Console." Right-click on "On-Access Scanner" and choose "properties." Then select "all processes."

Depending on which McAfee version you have, select either "Configure different scanning policies for high-risk, low-risk and default processes" or "Use different settings for high-risk and low-risk processes." Select "low-risk processes"; on the "Processes" tab, click "Add," and find the Malwarebytes program in the software list. In the "Detection" tab, unselect the options in the "Scan files" section.


Q: It's time to buy a new computer, and I really don't want to get one with Windows 8, which I don't like. But all the new computers seem to be preloaded with Windows 8. Can I still get a new PC with Windows 7?

—Barbara Brown, Schuylkill Haven, Pa.

A: Yes. Because of the lack of consumer enthusiasm for Windows 8, Windows 7 PCs are still available from computer maker Dell (see http://tinyurl.com/mkpfoeo) and retailer Wal-Mart Stores (see hhttp://tinyurl.com/m5t7hgg.)

NOTE: A note to all readers who want to download the free Malwarebytes program: Be careful, because free software pages are crammed with links to unrelated software that someone wants to promote. After you click the "Download Now" button for Malwarebytes, you must click "save" on the "mbam-setup" box floating above the next Web page (it's in the middle of the page for Firefox, and at bottom of the page for Internet Explorer). Don't click on anything else.
