    I didn't have any troubles with Norton scans and MBAM but since I saw the exclusions mentioned in the MBAM forums, I did put them in place in the Norton Internet Security Suite. It maybe wasn't necessary but I think it can't hurt to do so.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mbam.sys
    C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

    The last file entry above isn't present on my W.7 64-bit system. It was copied into Norton exclusions before I knew that. It just sits there redundant and I suppose it could be removed.

    Since Norton products like to disable other AV/AS products, your strategy is wise as a preventive measure. Malwarebytes also has a "Chameleon" folder in its Programs area, and the main executable in that Folder also needs to be excluded from Norton's attentions.

    This is a tired old conspiracy theory that doesn't hold up. Also, users are capable of evaluating the usability of antivirus software, but do not have the resources to properly test technical characteristics such as blocking, detection, and removal. For that we must rely on specialists like PC Magazine, Virus Bulletin, AV-Comparatives, etc.

    'Specialists" have agendas also and as long as they are carrying ads for the products they are evaluating then I believe the possibility for a positive review is skewed in favor of the advertiser.
