  1. Hello! I am infected with something and I've reached the limit of my knowledge. My memory usage on my computer is high. Partly that' is not an uncommon occasion - I am a tab-a-hollic and can have 20-50 tabs open in Chrome, But I recognize that behavior, Its old and familiar. This is something new and different. The memory compression process is using 400,000k-700,000k on average and I've seen it use as much as 1200k this week. All the time. It's normal to see memory compression pop up when I close a memory greedy tab or two but it goes away after a minute or so. Now it's here all the time. McAfee's Module Core Service and MMSSHOST process are also using a lot of working set memory too. At first, I found the Memory Compression service was using a lot of both working and privet set memory almost mirroring each other. Then I found a bunch of system protected hidden folders on my C:\ drive. There was even one in my recycling bin! I used McAfee's file shredder on what I could, and when the system prevented me from doing so, I switched to using the Comand Line with Admin authority. When I got all of the hidden system folders I hadn't created deleted and rebooted, Memory Compression's Privet Set usage fell from 400,000-700,000k to 999k
  2. Is it reasonable to run Malwarebytes alongside McAfee? Will running the 2 together have any noticeable effect on performance? I'm running Windows 10 64bit and have 16GB of memory. Thanks...
