  1. Just an old school habit I suppose. I also have a gaming rig and whenever a game reaches 60% ram I get a little worried lol. I guess I’m a little misconceited in that sense. I should be able to remove the Lenovo software, thanks for the catch! I really appreciate your help, thank you for your time and effort. I’m sorry you had to deal with my rambling.
  2. Fair enough, I can respect that. In regards to the “Lenovo” program, I’m not quite sure what it is. My computer is a Lenovo laptop and it has been on there since day 1. Do you think it could be something to worry about? My computer has 8gb of DDR4-3200 ram.
  3. I apologize! I did not see where you said that it was inline with the expected value. My question about the process not truly stopping is still valid. To answer your question, I'm running both Malwarebytes and Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control along with CCleaner and Simple DNSCrypt. They are all using less than 1% of memory combined. Most of the memory lag is probably due to Chrome if we're being honest here... lol
  4. Thank you for the speedy response! I've attached the screenshot, I hope it helps.
  5. Hi, first let me introduce the way I discovered this issue. I noticed that my memory usage was quite high at the fault of "Malwarebytes Service". So, naturally, I tried to change the memory priority to low (I'm not sure if this is a good idea to do, if it isn't, please let me know). It wouldn't allow me to change the priority because the service was running, I'm assuming (again correct me if I'm wrong). So I tried to end the process from both the task manager and the process tray. It wouldn't let me close it from the task manager, but closing it from the tray seemed to work. After I ended the process from the tray, the process was still eating up memory even though it wasn't appearing in the tray any longer. I went to the Windows Service manager and looked for "Malwarebytes service" and it was perpetually "stopping". I waited 10-15 minutes on this screen waiting for the process to stop like it said it would, and it never did. All of this is to try and change the process priority, so I have two questions: firstly, is it a good idea to even change the process priority in the first place? If so, what level should I put it on? My other question- if it is safe to change the process priority, how do I truly end the service? I've tried restarting my computer multiple times and the same problem keeps occurring. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I love this service, it's the best of it's kind in my opinion; I just can't deal with the memory load. Thank you for your time.
