    I have both Malwarebytes and BD Total Security on my two computers, with exceptions set as recommended. Right click BD File Scan works fine for me. You can add BD to task bar via Windows Settings, Personalization, Taskbar, under Notifications, click on "Select which icons appear on the taskbar".

    I have had no problem since 2104 running BD and MBAM Premium together. Make sure also that you unclick, in MBAM settings, Security, Windows Security Center, "Always Register Malwarebytes in the Windows Security Center."

    I hope this helps. Have a great day.
