Experiencing High Resource Usage in Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection Posted December 5, 2018 Resource usage issues have cropped up over the product's life a few times, but not all causes have been the same thing, despite similar symptoms. One person's solution in this long standing thread may not be applicable to someone else's issue. For those of you reading this in the future, please keep this in mind. @Kernel009, have a look at what starts on the machines. When a delay helps out with resource usage, it is most often due to competing protection software engines trying to load at similar times, or another program starting up that attracts the attention of one or more protection software real time engines into watching it. This sort of behavior can begin before log on, if that is the case, recording the event with a tool called Process Monitor, in a boot logging mode, can help provide visibility into what is happening at that time.
