  2. I am a technician at a small computer repair shop. We have been installing Malwarebytes on our customer machines for a number of years and recommending them to purchase the full version of the software. Recently, beginning within a week or so ago, we've noticed severe performance issues with the latest version of Malwarebytes. Scans on some machines are taking 16 hours or more, or even multiple days sometimes. The issue does not seem to be with every machine, although I have not been able to discern much of a pattern as to which machines are affected and which are not. Some have had the free version while others the premium. Some have been decent quality hardware while some have been low-budget or old hardware. All have been running version 4.0.4 and all have been running Windows 10 build 1909. I don't know if other versions or builds of Windows are affected, as we don't have a particularly large number of machines come through here to really thoroughly experiment with. Computers that have this issue with Malwarebytes scans have system performance issues overall, causing the computers to run painfully slow, even on good hardware. Malwarebytes refuses to uninstall (The uninstaller freezes), and reinstalling or repairing with the Malwarebytes Support Tool does not fix the issue. Completely removing Malwarebytes with the Support Tool does fix the performance issues system-wide, but reinstalling Malwarebytes afterward then reintroduces the problem. Windows repairs such as DISM, SFC, and in-place upgrade installs also do not resolve the issue. SFC has found corruption on about half of the computers we've seen with this issue with Malwarebytes. This seems to affect perhaps 5-10% of the machines we have seen over the past week or so, but is clearly caused by Malwarebytes. We have been quite happy with Malwarebytes until now and would like to feel good about continuing to recommend it to our customers. However, these issues are making it difficult. We would like to get this resolved. Please advise.
  3. I was looking into PC performance improvement software and was looking at PC Matic specifically. However, after reviewing several topics in the forum and considering the fact that the PC Matic folks never responding when I asked them a pre-sales question, I decided against them. I'm pretty sure the Malwarebytes does not have such software and does not plan on developing it in the future. Is there a suggestion on a source for PC improvement software that coexists well with Malwarebytes. I am happy with Malwarebytes and am not looking for a PC improvement software that also checks for malware, etc. thanks Mike
  4. Hello, I come here to ask about my problem and what type of fix could I get. To start with, I'm currently running Windows 7 In an HP laptop with the safe mode. The issue started a couple weeks ago where I started to notice my pc was acting strangely, I downloaded Avast's free antivirus to try and fix the problem with a full scan. The problem was gone for like an hour then it came back again. I started to notice also that my pc, whenever I started it, had the automatic antivirus protection option disabled and I had to manually enable it, the pc started to run very slowly and the last couple days it began to show problems as strong performance slow downs and they came with some net disconnect issues, I'm not really sure if the performance issue can affect the wi-fi but usually the pc disconnected like a minute or two. However, I uninstalled Avast, and installed Bitdefender, the same issue is giving me problems and it's even stronger lately, I hope I can get an answer about this problem. PD: Whenever the slow downs start I can't even open the task manager or it takes a couple of minutes to show and sometimes, programs like the Bitdefender or Steam do not open.
  5. I recently upgraded from 3.3 to 3.4 and have noticed lag in Borderlands 2 when the game autosaves at a checkpoint. I did not have this issue with the 3.3 version and it only appeared post upgrade to 3.4. It makes the game literally unplayable. I have found other people who recently, as in the last two weeks who are having the same issue. https://steamcommunity.com/app/49520/discussions/0/1698293703772876529/ They also report the issue post 3.4 update considering the timing of the posts being March of this year. They solved it by disabling Malwarebytes Real Time protections. I can confirm that Malwarebytes is indeed the issue and when these protections are disabled the lag disappears. Please fix this, as I don't want to disable my protection just to play a video game.
  6. I'm on the 2 week premium portion of a trial download. Taking my machine out of hibernation, my PC became unusable because something was chewing up CPU cycles, at a rate of 30%. I had to fiddle around and find the resource monitor to find out what was wrong. It was MB running some mysterious process. Then I had to go into MB and turn off the "premium" features in order to restore performance. I was not running a scan (I have this on manual). It was consuming resources related to one of the Premium protections. Often when I turn on my machine, I want to do some quick little thing. I don't want to wait for a hidden process to finish. Is this CPU usage normal? Is there some way to tell MB to postpone whatever it thinks it needs to do until later? I don't think I"m going to be interested in Premium features that actually impair my PC's performance. Thanks -- Mark
  7. 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
  8. Windows 10 Professional, 64-bits with Malwarebytes, running on a system with i5-330P CPU, 16 GBs memory and Samsung EVO SSD. The system also has Vipre Antivirus version The system runs just fine, no issues with Malwarebytes except performance. If and when Malwarebytes protection enabled, MS Office applications, such as Word and Excel, have a substantial delay staring up. I've measured the the time it takes to start up with PassMark AppTimer V1.0 build 1010. With Malwarebytes active, this is the time it showed: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\WINWORD.EXE 0.9636 That's one second that gets even a lot worse, if and when the word document is opened from a network share. Subsequent opening a different word document has no delays, as long as the first document is open. If it's closed, the delay is there. Stopping and disabling the "Malwarebytes Service" in services and re-running the test shows this: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\WINWORD.EXE 0.1556 That's about six times faster, than the previous test and opening up word document from network share is just as fast. Excel shows the same delay at startup, if Malwarebytes enabled. I've just built a system with an i5-8400 CPU, 16 Gbs memory and Samsung NVMe EVO drive with Windows 10 Professional, 64-bits. Adding Malwarebytes slowed the MS applications the same way on this system too. Both systems have licensed installation, as shown in the attached image. Question... Is there a reason why MS Office apps are slowed down with Malwarebytes, at times to a crawl? Windows 10 has a number of built-in memory protections for apps. Could the some of the Malwarebytes memory protection, in "Advance Settings\Advanced Memory Protection" causing the conflict that slows the apps start up time down? TIA... PS: Internet Explorer 11 has an even worse start up time with Malwarebytes...
  9. I have a i7 with 32 GB ram running Windows 10 latest. Recently, accessing files on my SSD has been extremely SLOW, it's slower than a mechanical hard drive. My browsing has been slow. When multi-tasking, my computer mysteriously slows down. Generally, everything slow down to last gen machine. My Q6600 felt much faster than my i7. I play with numerous settings, update driver software, replacing hardware components, nothing helps. Today, thanks to MBAM kills my machine by eating all my RAM, I decided to remove it until they fix it. The side effect is that my machine is now back alive with performance I expected with no other issues what so ever! When I searched the RAM issue, I realized that MBAM has been slowing down computers in the past and I would not have thought about it without today's RAM issue. Hopefully MBAM will have a newer patch than today's to fix not only the RAM leak issue but also performance issue. Looking forward to install MBAM again.
  10. Ever since I installed Malwarebytes 3, I'm noticing it's using a lot more resources than Malwarebytes 2 did. I have a pretty decent computer, so to see this and not be able to do much without applications freezing, especially when I want something to do while I wait for Malwarebytes to finish scanning is pretty annoying. I was wondering, is this intentional or is it just something wrong with my computer? I have a screenshot here, and I've also attached it in case people can't see the screenshot. (EDIT: I just now noticed that for some reason it still shows COMODO Internet Security in Task Manager even though I uninstalled it. Could this be my issue?)
  11. While gaming, if MB starts a scan, fps starts dropping down to 10 even on light games. Not only did this never happen on MB 2, but I'm running an i7 4790k and a radeon 280x with 16 GBs of RAM, an 850 EVO SSD, and nothing else running in the background. MB is the only security software on the computer. I have several computers with win7 and win10 with these problems since the big update. Even when not scanning, links being clicked on different programs are taking a lot longer to open in a browser. Just awful response times between programs. Otherwise everything is fine when I don't start MB 3. I noticed in a previous thread, the reply was something along the lines of "it finishes the scan faster by using more power," which by common sense, should never be a security software feature. Like a good waiter, it should be invisible until you need it. It's starting to seem like a permanent issue since it hasn't been prioritized since launch, so I'm hoping by adding on to the pile of complaints, you get enough requests to change MB 3. Also, big compliments to whoever worked on version 2, that was probably the best security software ever made and we won't see its likes again.
  12. Hi! Since I installed Malwarebytes 3 I never had any problems with it, I think I can consider myself lucky since there are so many posts here reporting so many problems, some of them being recurring problems between versions.... But lately, my Malwarebytes is acting a little weird... It is just taking forever to launch the main application, for example when I open it from the tray, or when I use on-demand scan in context menu to make sure a file is clean before opening it. Sometimes it is taking even 5 MINUTES to open the application and it didn't used to happen before. Yeah well, it always took some time to start, but not so long like what I'm experiencing now. Also, I noticed that I can't add any kind of exclusions anymore...when I try to add exclusions, the wizard finishes but nothing is added to the list. Should I perform a reinstall maybe?
  13. Malware bytes Component Package 1.0.50 Update Version 1.0.1163 Configuration web protection ON, Exploit Protection ON, Malware Protection ON, Ransomeware Protection ON W10 Lenovo X1 / 8GB RAM ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Since updating to I've seen a dramatic performance decrease in all aspects - application launch, browser response, opening Windows Explorer. The previous version of Malwarebytes did not have this impact on performance. I am able to disable MBAM and performance returns to normal. Malware Bytes Service is consuming 238.9 MB RAM / 7.4 percent of memory I performed the update after following "MBAM Clean Removal Process 2X"
  14. Hello, About a week ago and after the Windows 10 update (I already had Windows 10 previously) my desktop was very slow, and only whatever had to do with the programs and the Windows. Using the Internet was fine. It took half an hour for my desktop to completely start up/shut down each time. A couple of time it did shut down faster, but only these one/two times. After about 1 to 2 minutes at the starting up process, the screen went completely black for about 30 seconds or so and only after that black screen disappeared, only then I was able to run anything in my PC (application or to work with Windows), but again all operations were very slow. I was waiting for 5 minutes or more for Windows to load the control panel or any other program! Exactly after the Windows update, I also noticed that the Kaspersky icon appeared again on my desktop, like when we just install a program. I tried to run Malwarebytes from the arrow at the system tray, but nothing happened when I clicked the icon there. I went for a walk with my dog and after half an hour Malwarebytes still didn't launch, nothing happened. Then I went to run Malwarebytes from the installed programs, and a window from Windows opened asking me if I give my permission for this program to allow to make changes in my computer just like when we are about to install a new program … :-o I did run a scan both with Kaspersky Internet Security and with Malwarebytes but they didn't find any threat. Searching for solutions online I came upon a thread somewhere with the following tip to make our Windows much faster: https://m.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/3fm7m8/windows_10_is_very_laggy_and_slow_after_the_update/ After I did that, my desktop run again as normal and perhaps a little faster. But lately, the past two-three days, I have noticed that when I am starting up the chrome browser, it starts from a blank screen and after 2-3 seconds loads gradually the page (I have set it to load the apps page). So, I think that the problem has not been solved, but rather postponed. Also, on the Internet, when I am clicking on something, sometimes there’s a significant lag before I can continue with the selected action. I did run and saved the results from the Event Viewer from Windows 10 and it found 3 critical errors and many other problems, but there’s not any relation to any file/program so I don’t know where to search. Attached are also the results from the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool. Many thanks in advance people! <3 FRST.txt Addition.txt
  15. Hi, Last three days I have been struggling hard and trying to save myself have my system formatted and re-install all my work and softwares. I did purchase Malware bytes, Avast antivirus and already have corporate Mcafee on my PC but all in vain.

I did see miner folder and a service nircmd.exe. I deleted that from services. Need your help to fix my PC. attaching DDS logs. Thanks, Piyush DDS.txt Attach.txt
  16. I'm using Windows 7 on my HP ProBook 4250s. The problem I face is that my system halts for a fraction of second after every 2-3 seconds. These jerks are not letting me concentrate or work properly. This happens even when I'm just typing in notepad while no other application is running. I tried to install every driver from HP's website and there's no item in device manager marked with yellow icon.

  17. Is it just me or what. But I just cant workout when I can practically do a full scan. I dont know to be honest what the time for a full scan in hours would be as I always have to abort it. the last one had reached 5 hours plus but already we are into the third day since I started the scan; I mean I have to pause it because I need to work as well and it is to impacting on system performance for soething that is going to be running for hours. Granted the pause offers some respite and granted the quick scan seems to have dealt with my latest nasty: Trojan-ransome. But have I missed something? Is there someway to run a full scan with it automatically running as a background process, allowing CPU priority to go elsewhere by default and restricting memmory use? To be honest which or if both of those resources are being laboured I havn't checked. I dont care either I just want to be able to work. As things stand it just doesnt seem feasible to do a full scan.
