  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 f
  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 malwar
  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 c
  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.
  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
  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 &a
  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
  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 w
  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 Mana
  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 M
  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

  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
  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. One fine day the pC c drive space reduced from 70 to 55 GB :-( I am nuts..have run Malwarbytes, AVG and it removed few viruses like bit coiner and AutoRun, its much better now but still slow. 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 At
  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. Following are my system specs: Machine: HP ProBook 4250s OS: Windows 7 professional RAM: 2GB Processor: Intel Core i3 2.27GHz Following is my HijackThis Log: Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1 Scan saved a
  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
