Whenever I have Malwarebytes 3.1.2 (component package 1.0.139) running, it makes launching the Atom text editor by GitHub painfully slow. When I disable ALL 4 protection types in Malwarebytes, it helps slightly but not enough. I have even added an exception for Atom.exe as well as the entire Atom text editor folder. I have noticed that when I launch a text editor such as Sublime Text 3, it launches full speed and instantly regardless of whether I have Malwarebytes running or not. I am really hoping that this is something that can be fixed.
I will now post some pictures showing the launch speeds of Atom text editor at various points.
Malwarebytes running with all protections:
Malwarebytes not running:
