Installing more than one antivirus, firewall, or other security software may cause unexpected behaviors and performance issues.  Excluding Malwarebytes Endpoint Security file paths can help prevent your other security software from blocking installations, updates, and other operations, allowing them to run simultaneously without issues.

 

If you have an additional security software provider that allows you to add exclusions, exceptions, or ignore specific files, we recommend you add the file paths below.  Exclude the file paths as both a file and a process, if possible.  Refer to the other vendor's documentation for instructions on configuring exclusions.
