  1. Hello, I'm on Windows 10 with Norton Security Suite and MalwareBytes 3.3.1. Windows Task Manager shows MalwareBytes consuming anywhere fromb-check-results.zipm 16 to 25% of the CPU. It has been doing this for hours. I attached the results from MbCheck which was run a few hours ago. Can you help?
  2. Hello everyone. First Post here for me. Not going to hound or whine for a fix, just looking for a way to deal with this drag on my PC's performance issue. So some details that others might provide are missing here. I've read a lot of posts on this issue, and it seems to be at least a year since a MB Representative said on this Forum that a fix was "in the works". Obviously MB is not interested in fixing this issue or they CAN'T fix it. Either way, if I can't find a workaround to at least deal with it, it will be time for me to find another scanner. I used to leave my PC turned on 24/7 & just locked the screen when finished for the day. Things like system wide malware scans were never a problem as I just scheduled them when I knew I would be away, usually late at night. I no longer leave the PC on. Problem now is that as soon as I turn it on for the day, Malware Bytes (among others) jump immediately into action and gobble up huge portions of my PC’s resources, causing very noticeable and bothersome lags in performance for the things I want to use the PC for. This in spite of a 4.0 GHz, 6-Core CPU, 16GB of RAM and a SSD System drive. A task as simple as just loading a program can take as long as 2-3 minutes where it normally takes only 7-10 SECONDS! My question is this: Is there a FIX for this? If not, is there a way to setup MB to either limit its use of resources (preferred) OR, if that is not possible, set MB to turn off the PC after I *MANUALLY* initiate a scan? Appreciate whatever help anyone can provide, -Gary MB Premium Version: Component package version: 1.0.262 Update package version: 1.0.4306 Now it
  3. Hello Malwarebytes Forums, I am not sure if this issue has already been reported or known about, but I would like to report an issue regarding the high CPU usage and memory the process MBAMService.exe uses in the premium version of Malwarebytes 3.0. The issue is, everytime you use your web browser, whether it's the web browser loading web pages for example, MBAMService.exe would just hog the CPU usage until the the web browser is complete loading the web page you wanted. This is possibly due to the Web Protection feature in the Malwarebytes 3.0 program, maybe? Anyways, this kind of CPU usage behavior MBAMService.exe is doing can really stress and/or strain a computer with a dual-core only CPU if anyone here is still using those kinds of CPU's, because you have the web browser using the CPU when it's loading web pages, and then you have MBAMService.exe hogging the CPU as well until the web browser is complete loading the web page, making the dual-core only CPU briefly go up to 100% CPU usage. I have Malwarebytes version 3.0.5 installed on this computer, and this CPU Usage issue is still happening on 3.0.5. This never happened at all when I was still using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware version 2.2 on this computer before I upgraded to the new Malwarebytes version 3.0 program, and I hope that this issue can get fixed. Here is a picture of Windows Task Manager in Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit (my laptop computer, with a dual-core only CPU) showing the MBAMService.exe process doing it's high CPU Usage work while Mozilla Firefox, (my main web browser that I use) is loading web pages. There are no scans or updating being ran while doing this. This is between both the web browser, (Mozilla Firefox) & MBAMService.exe. Thanks, - sfermani1996
  4. I don't know if it is normal or not but I guess it is not. My Malwarebytes is Premium. The Malwarebytes of my desktop only consumes total of 70MB and I got this amount of usage on my laptop.
  5. Hi forum! Recently I've noticed huge performance drop on my pc while running games, fps drop below 60 to even 15fps and stay there. GPU usage goes up to 97-99% on idle few minutes after startup and temp around 65-70. I need help identifying the root of high GPU usage. My PC is: i5 4690k GTX 980Ti
  6. MBARW showed high CPU, around 24% - one whole core, in essence. Specifically, the MB3Service did. Stopping and then starting protection resolved this. However, checking on it a few hours later, I see "Your system is fully protected" and "Anti-Ransomware Protection is disabled", with the "Start Protection" link not having any effect. Acronis is currently running its daily backup. Do I expect MBARW to disable its own protection while a backup is running?
  7. So I am running It has been running smoothly without error since install. However this AM it popped up and PC slowed to crawl. Checked task manager, had taken up 4400MB of ram, basically everything left after my other running processes. (just under half of my 8GB) I clicked Stop Protection and it immediately started shrinking and has retreated to 33.9MB I just clicked Start Protection and it now says Your system is fully protected but then it still says AntiRansomware Protection is disabled and the Start Protection button has not changed to Stop Protection. Ram usage us up to 35.1 MB and holding steady. I'm going to go see if there is a new version...
  8. Just out of curiosity,.. what would -roughly- be the 'normal' amount of memory that MBAM would be using? Would some 200MB be normal? Thanks. =
  9. The MBAMService.exe service is taking up 3 GB of my memory and completely slows down my PC. I am running a Windows 7 64 bit OS with McAfee AV and HIPS. Only until I kill the service, can I work on my computer.
  10. Today, I've noticed that mbamservice.exe uses a lot of CPU. I've searched for a solution and all I've seen is that Malicious Website Blocking is the cause. Here is the CPU usage comparison when enabled and when disabled: WHEN ENABLED: WHEN DISABLED: How can I fix this?
  11. Hello, I am not sure if this is a sign of infection or if this is because of something else. The computer that this is happening to only has 2 GB of RAM total, so when svchost.exe RAM usage goes up to 1 GB, it really slows down the entire computer. The hard disk is used after the RAM fills up, which then causes a major slowdown. The owner of the computer has told me that he saw some infections on malwarebytes and he removed them, however after looking at the history in malwarebytes, it turns out that all which was detected were a few PUPs. I ran a HIJackThis and here are the results: Below is the list of PUPs that were detected by malwarebytes and quarantined: And finally, here is an image of the tasklist /svc command ran to show what services are running under the svchost.exe processes: http://i.imgur.com/vIKqGtz.png I couldn't find anything that stood out to me so I thought I would ask here to make sure that this issue isn't caused by some type of malware. If this is not a malware issue then I will tell the person that he needs more RAM. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  12. Hello, I have had high spikes with mbamservice.exe recently and I have been looking around for a few days. In task manager and other similar programs it shows my CPU% used jumping from 2% to 30% every few seconds with no actions by me. (mbamservice.exe is causing the spikes). I've done a full, quick, and flash scan over the past few days and 0 items have been detected. Any help is appreciated! I have seen these asked for on other posts so here are the dds results + specs. dds.txt attach.txt
  13. Hey there, I recently noticed my ping times to local devices such as my router are above 1ms which is obviously not normal. I've finally narrowed it down to the Malicious Website Blocking module on MBAM. Here are my ping times with the module enabled: Reply from bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=64 Reply from bytes=32 time=4ms TTL=64 Reply from bytes=32 time=4ms TTL=64 Reply from bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=64Here are my ping times with the website blocking module disabled and just the file system protection enabled: Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64 Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64 Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64 Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64Is there any way I can fix this? Thank you in advance.
