  1. My machine has become unusable in the last couple of days. Malwarebytes uses all my memory and makes it virtually impossible to use the machine for anything else. I uninstalled and re-installed Malwarebytes to make sure I had the most up to date version of everything to see if that made a difference and no change.

  2. I am having an issue where the MalwareBytes service is using ALL of my (32GB) memory and 25% of CPU (per Process Explorer).

Attached are the three files you usually want to diagnose problems. FRST.txt Addition.txt CheckResults.txt
  4. My Girlfriends laptop is getting error messages saying it is running low on virtual memory despite not many if any programmes being open. In general it is just running much slower than it should considering the spec of the laptop/memory available so i'm pretty sure there is a virus hogging resources. Any help is much appreciated!
