Not true. Simply open Services (type in "Services" in windows search). Scroll down to find "Malwarebytes Service". RIght-click and select "Properties" and set the "Start-up Type" drop-down to "Disabled". Reboot and you should be good to go. But remember to set this back to "Automatic" to re-enable when they've released a fix/patch version.
Just another Me Too! Computer crashed 3 times in row - straight to black screen and need for power cycle. Luckily tracked it down via task manager to see 16 GB of RAM being consumed in about 5 mins. Went to Services and set "Malwarebytes Service" to Disabled. All good for now.
