Don't run both of them. This can lead to problems. Decide for one, deactivate the other.

You can run both,  but turn off active scanning or on- access scanning on one (I would turn  off MSE's component -that is how I used to run it).

They will not conflict if you setup exclusion to scan esch of theitlr executables. See this for actual steps.

 First off, you can try a clean reinstall of MSE and MBAM.

 Then install MSE and then set up the exclusions and permissions (as described in the below posts) to exclude MBAM files before installing MBAM.

 Thereafter in MBAM set up the exclusion for MSE (as described in the below posts).
 
Verify both MSE and MBAM for updates and they should ran quick scans normally.
