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.
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
