  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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: 3.3.1.2183 Component package version: 1.0.262 Update package version: 1.0.4306 Now it
  6. Windows 10 Professional, 64-bits with Malwarebytes 3.3.1.2183, running on a system with i5-330P CPU, 16 GBs memory and Samsung EVO SSD. The system also has Vipre Antivirus version 9.3.4.3. 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...
  7. 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.
