  1. Got build 141 automatically today, but I see no announcement nor manual download link. ???
  2. Ok, thanks! I thought it was lower with the previous component package. Best, François
  3. Hi. Updated manually to the new component package. Rebooted twice since then, and memory consumption seems abnormal and maybe related to a conflit with MSE? Running W7 Pro x64 fully updated with MBAM premium and MSE only. Svchost is also high, maybe related to the conflict? MSE and MBAM are fully excluded from each other, by the way. Screenshot show the three most memory consuming apps running at the moment. Thnks!
  4. Do you run the very latest beta? (3.1.1) Did you excluded other security programs, if any? I have no more performance issues at all with this one.
  5. Thanks to you! Glad Malwarebytes finally have what seems to be a winner! You didn't notice anything worth fixing in my machine, with the logs I provided? Thanks again! François
  6. Good morning Ron. I installed the new beta, rebooted and compiled with and without self-protection. (the others were enabled) Congrats! The time was the same, i.e. short! Good work! Best, François
  7. Bingo! It's the self-protection module that causes the slowdown, even with the other four protections disabled! I'm attaching the requested files, but I can't include mbamservice.log in the logs because 7-zip complains it's open into another program. (makes sense) Had to disable self-protection to be able to make a zipfile of the other logs. Addition.txt FRST.txt MB-CheckResult.txt logs.zip
  8. Oh, thanks, missed that one, sorry! I'll check again in a few days and let you know. However, for some reason, MBAM disappeared from the tray a couple of days ago. The service is running but not the tray app. Strange.
  9. Hi Devin. Please read posts #11 and #17 in this thread, to answer your second question.
  10. You'll probably hear from officials here soon, but Malwarebytes suffered from a similar problem a while ago, and they are supposed to have installed everything needed to prevent this from happening again. But as I said, I'm not an official, just a follower.
  11. Thanks Ron. It's a Dell computer with a Broadcom netlink gigabit network adapter. FWIW, I was able to find a newer driver but the compile time went from 3.5 seconds to 4.5, so hardly a success. I had rebooted after installation of the new driver. I'm still puzzled about the throughput beeing the same whether the protection is enabled or disabled though, but can live with slower compile times, since I'm not compiling 8 hours a day... Best regards, François
  12. Of course, but add this to all the other problems since the launch of MBAM 3 and it doesn't help to give a good feeling about the product. This version should not have been publicly released so fast. I hope Malwarebytes won't repeat the same mistakes with version 4.
  13. I second that idea, but how did previous releases behave, can't remember.
  14. Ok, so here's some thought food. I did graphs with Windows performance monitor. (CPU, memory and disk usage) Network compile is about 2.3 times slower than local compile. Disabling all the protections doesn't change anything, profiles are almost exactly the same. (very strange...) Deactivating the license makes the compile very fast, even across the network. Note: all compile target directories were in the exclusions My first impression is that disk I/O speed makes the biggest impact. Network access is slow when MBAM is real-time, even if all protections have been turned off (web, malware, anti-exploit and ransomware), which is really strange. LOCAL COMPILE: NETWORK COMPILE with everything activated: NETWORK COMPILE with everything turned OFF: NETWORK COMPILE in FREE mode:
  15. Thanks, I'll check with resmon tomorrow. Do you know a way to get more than 60 seconds of scrollback?
  16. Yes, I have run the lodctr commands last week. For the moment, all I can say is that the whole compilation process takes several times longer than without MBAM. I'll try to see if I can come up with something more specific. Do you have some in-house supervisor software which can watch MBAM and generate some logfile? Or special command-line options to launch MBAM to get logfiles? Regards, François
  17. Update: Maybe you won't believe me, but disabling *all four* protections (web, malware, anti-exploit and ransomeware) don't change anything, no speed improvement! Sole thing that worked, short of uninstall, was to deactivate the license, converting MBAM to freeware mode and rebooting. Seems MBAM is still slowing the I/O, even with all protection turned off, wow!
  18. Good idea! Will try that and come back with the results after Easter holiday. Best, François
  19. Thanks! Did all this and about an hour after reboot and reinstallation, the computer froze. Upon cold boot (had to to a physical shutdown), ransomware protection had turn off itself. Turned it on. I did a compile after that, but honestly it seemed the same low speed I got before. (excluded the network drive of course) I'm going to install CU4.1 (engine 1.0.103) to see if it helps. Later, François
