  1. On Monday, I received the upgrade to Malwarebytes 3.0.6 from the previous one and I have to say, I am not happy with it at all. My main gripe is that it has become more resource-heavy when one of its processes, "MBAMProcess", takes up over 300MB of memory and with that number being higher than "explorer.exe" and "svchost.exe" combined, and even worse when I have Mozilla Firefox open that also consumes memory, and this is because I only have 4GB of memory for this laptop (which is a Dell Inspiron N7010) and when I performed the first scan with it, the laptop is forced to work harder as it causes its fan to spin faster, implicating that the scanning process is now much more intense and to be frank, is not good for a seven-year old machine. Don't want the fan to wear out each time I do a scan. Also, the animations within the program are somewhat choppy even during the scan and from what I've seen and experienced, I feel this is more optimised for Windows 10 but that's solely my opinion. Unhappy with this, I decided to downgrade it back to 2.2.1.1043 but after I did that, I am denied of real-time protection and with the program nagging me to upgrade each time I open it. Even if this has three more months of support, I feel this is entirely not fair unless I done something wrong. According to the FAQ, I didn't know you had to reboot after the removal of the new version and then install the older one. Maybe that's why I'm getting this but, I don't know. I don't really want to part with the software itself as it has been very good to me since I had it, and I hope things will change for the next release even with what I said above.
