  1. Oops, I see there is already a thread for this topic. However, I do have some questions. Is Malwarebytes capable of doing the same job as Windows Defender and scan for both malware and viruses? Should I switch Malwarebytes off in the Security Center and use Windows Defender as primary, and if so, will that prevent Malwarebytes from working as well?
  2. I just installed the latest beta for Malwarebytes 4, and it appears to take over as the primary antivirus provider on Windows 10 and turns off Windows Defender. Is this standard behavior and should Malwarebytes being doing this? I thought it was only useful for detection and removal of malware. Is it capable of also being a primary antivirus application?
  3. This problem exists even when Google Chrome is closed.
  4. Experiencing the same problem myself. I've even tried using the "Clean" function in the Support Tool, rebooting, and then reinstalling it. It doesn't make a difference. There's something wrong with MB3.
  5. The issue is still happening. I'm now running Windows 10 1909 18363.356 and am encountering the same behavior with Malwarebytes. If I quit Malwarebytes and re-open it, it temporarily resolves the issue, but then a few hours later it randomly comes back when my computer is sitting idle. Malwarebytes version: Component package version: 1.0.625 Update package version: 1.0.12491
  6. I suppose that's possible, as I am currently in the Release Preview ring. I will check to see if this is still an issue after 1909 is officially released.
  7. Malwarebytes does this even with Chrome closed. I've been restarting constantly to troubleshoot this issue.
  8. Here are the logs from running the support tool. mbst-grab-results.zip
  9. It seems either the new component or update package for MWB 3.8.3 is causing my entire Windows 10 computer to lag very badly. There are constant delays of 3-5 seconds while trying to browse, type, or click anywhere in Windows 10. Additionally, Malwarebytes Service is constantly taking up 10-20% CPU and anywhere from 8.0 MB/s to 10 MB/s disk usage at all times, even though the app is not running any scans or doing anything at all. Uninstalling Malwarebytes fixes the problem, but shortly after reinstalling MWB 3.8.3, the issue starts to occur again. This only started to occur recently, so it might have something to do with Component package version 1.0.625 or Update package version 1.0.12389.
