Agreed, I use windows defender in conjunction with Malwarebytes and common sense, never had an issue. In fact, I just bought a Malwarebytes premium key for my laptop because I have it for my desktop and it's well worth the few dollars I paid on shoppy.

Malwarebytes is always having official sales so it's well worth it to support the company I think. If it's cheap elsewhere, why not I guess. I had the same setup until Windows Defender kept deleting the file in my PDF acrobat pro that let me have it for free. It would not allow the exception I kept putting so I disabled it. I did like it otherwise :/

Yeah, it always gives you trouble with keygens and cracking tools, as a workaround I disable my internet connection, turn off real-time protection when attempting to launch the app, then run it sandboxed or in a VM. Usually fixes my issue.
