Xxaxie replied to sfermani1996's topic in Malwarebytes 3.0Can anyone recommend a replacement for Mbam? I can't use it the way it is and I'm certainly not going to recommend it to my customers any longer.
Xxaxie replied to sfermani1996's topic in Malwarebytes 3.0Same here with the CPU issues. Since updating to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 3.0 my computer has become extremely slow while browsing the Internet. If I exit Mbam, it runs normally again. When it is running slow, the resource monitor always shows Mbam using the most CPU time - in the range of 21-28%. This is much higher than Mbam 2. I also have ESET Smart Security 9.0.408.0. running as my main security software... I've monitored CPU usage and verified that Mbam and/or ESET are not scanning files or running updates during slowdowns. I use Chrome exclusively and have tried running without extensions and incognito mode with no change as long as Mbam is active. I tried MS Edge and Firefox and both are very slow when Mbam is active. Both Mbam (2.x) and ESET have been working together well for over a year without a problem but since upgrading to Mbam 3, my computer is almost too slow for Internet use. Questions: Can ESET and Mbam be fighting each other for CPU time? Do I still need to run both or is Mbam 3 now enough protection by itself? Could this slowness be due to bugs in Mbam 3? Lastly, I've been using Mbam and recommending it to my customers for at least 10 years and have always been happy with it. What did you do to make version 3 such a resource hog?
