Same here guys. What worked for me for switching it off instead of uninstalling is the following: 1.) Open up Malwarebytes 2.) Go to Settings -> Protection 3.) Switch off all 4 real-time protections Malwarebytes might try to re-run after this and you might experience the same RAM usage for 1-2 mins but after then it should disappear/get back to normal. Let me know if it's working for you too!
