Since I paid the license of Malwarebytes, my PC became heavy. While free/trial, it was not, not at all. There is too much hard disk activity durig Windows boot up and still a while later. It slurp my battery. My notebook is a HP Pavilion x360, Intel Core-M 2.0GHz, 4 GB ram, 1 TB HD. Before the license, Windows loading process was not that fast but now is that slow. Sometimes, Malwarebytes stays doing scans without I ask. I'd like an option to override obligatory scans.
New user here. I was told by my company that I had Malware on my computer. So the IT folks installed Malware Bytes. Thought that would fix things, but it doesn't seem to have had any effect. It does a scan every day and it doesn't find anything. I've even done a full scan, and nothing comes up. But every day, sometimes more than once, it finds and stops an exploit. It says it's a .dll file error, a file that I can't delete. So I ran a SFC scan (system file checker) that is supposed to allow Microsoft the opportunity to fix any corrupt file. But that scan said nothing was wrong. How can there be nothing wrong, yet the exploit still runs daily? Running Windows 10, Intel Core i57300U, 64-bit OS. Any clues or help would be appreciated.
We have a computer with scheduled update and scans (screen capture attached). The schedule is for one update and one scan daily.

Alright so recently I' came across some news about a 'legitimate' service for e-sport gamers which have been accused of implementing malware into their Anti-cheat client, so a part of their own client they manifested the malware as support tool for their service. Some of you may heard of this already, either way at this point i wish to know if there is any analyzers at all that take requests of applications that has been verified or are not yet tagged/flagged as unsafe. Malwarebytes forum has a subforum for people who know they are infected but i can't find any subforum for people who wish to get check-ups for their system or just files they want to be analyzed. The esport service i described above is https://gamersclub.com.br/ Also another one that i wish to know more about is: https://www.nptunnel.com/ Nptunnel or also known as "NoPing" is a routing service for gamers. The reason why i wonder about nptunnel is because no one has analyzed it and verified it. The problem is that both of these companies are under Brazilian law which do not abide by EU laws or EU rulings nor American laws which lack the safety of internet laws in many aspects which make intrusions such as implementing malware into their users computers not illegal. As both of these companies has been accused of implementing malicious/intrusive code into their clients and haven't seen any public in-depth evidence nor news service reporting about it i wish to know if there is any place or people that could maybe look into it and report back? As Malwarebytes is on the front lines of defending people and their systems i find it to be related to this board. Any feedback about this will be appreciated! Thanks in advance add: If you wish me to censor the brands, please tell me to do so or moderators could do it. =)
