  1. So my nightmare begins again. First off my machine crashed while playing a game. I reboot and run chkdsk and a scan just for the heck( it ran yesterday with unnoted issues.. I notice mbamservice creeping up and up in memory usage to over 8GB of memory. I rebooted before I ran out of RAM as I wasn't sure what my virtual memory was set to, possibly none. As the machine reboots I notice mbamservice running and already up to and over 2gb of memory. So what the hell, uninstall and reinstall. 3 times to reinstall as the license server is not responding. Nor are the updates. I can access other sites fine so it isn't an internet issue. I haven't installed any new software on my machine in months. Now I'm stuck with the fresh install with no updates which I'm sure that they will fix by next week. My question is why is mbamservice eating up such an absurd amount of memory. ever?!?!? Updated: Btw the web protection issue is still there. It won't turn on. IT turned itself off when I had to reboot and I can't get it to work again. Probably because the servers that it uses from malwarebytes are down and it can't communicate with them. Wish I had thought about this before I started to try and fix this mess.
