Hi all, I too got hit by the high memory issue with MBAM3. I finally figured out that it was a mbam issue after many program and pc crashes and freezes... Kudos for mbam staff getting a fix. Here is a suggestion: some sort of alerts for paid users? It could be via email (opt in), or even better, is it difficult to implement an alert notification system from within mbam3 itself? At the moment, I only get notifications regarding protection settings, or if malware is detected or blocked. Why not have a built in alert system, with actual popups on-screen, for critical issues like the memory issue we had today? The issue without notifications like this is what happened to me: I had the issue, and even with mbam3 updating itself automatically to a fixed version didn't fix it. I needed to disable stuff and then restart, but how was I to know to do all this? I only found out as I was about to put in a bug report here, only then to read about the issue and how to fix it. An inbuilt notification popup, such as "there is a critical issue with malwarebytes. Please upgrade to version XX.XX then turn off web protection, disable mbam in services.msc, then reboot". That way I could have saved a day of me thinking my computer or software had major issues. Good idea? Anyway, thanks for the fix. Cheers - Justin.
Hi everyone, I've got a serious problem with my computer after stupidly installing a piece of malware/virus that goes by the name of Tweakbit. I installed the speedtest software from speedtest.org under the guidance of someone who is skilled with computers and I actually had faith in... not anymore. Anyway the issue I'm having is that, after it was installed and ran, malware bytes picked up quite a few pieces of malware including some PUPs. I've gotten rid of them, but currently haven't cleaned up my registry yet. The main problem I am having is that now since that piece of software has been removed, I am having massive spikes in my computers physical memory. Anywhere from 70%-99% of my 32gb of DDR3. I am uncertain as to what is causing these massive spikes as prior to this piece of software I would never have any issues such as this. I am currently running windows 10 and know that it can possibly be a memory leak, but I am concerned that it may be a virus or altered settings due to this piece of malware. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to repair this?
