Side note. Malwarebytes 3.x Pro is more than sufficient as the only security product you have installed. As of 3.x Windows will actually see it as a qualifying AV and not bug you about not having AV installed.

Another side note. I and others have had some issues with 3.x and have reverted back to 2.x, I still run it standalone, no other AV. Will try 3 again before long to see if the issues are fixed.
