[Resolved] Bitdefender 2017 TS Blocking Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Installation
I am currently using BDTS2016 and have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium, running along side, with exceptions configured. To install the Malwarebytes products, it was necessary to disable the Anti-Virus scanning modules and the Intrusion Detection, but all worked well.
Yesterday, I had a friend purchase a BDTS2017 package and we successfully installed, after carefully and thoroughly removing McAfee, and previously uninstalling his Malwarebytes products. After BDTS2017 was successfully installed, I attempted to reinstall the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but it was repeatedly blocked (Application Blocking) by BDTS2017. I had turned off the Anti-Virus scanning modules and I whitelisted the installer file, but that made no difference.
QUESTION: How do I disable Bitdefender Total Security 2017 "application blocking" module temporarily to permit the installation of Malwarebytes products?
Thank you and have a great day.
