  1. Malwarebytes (MWB) threat scan is driving my PC into 100% utilisation and shutdown, often when I'm away from my desk. It's affecting my work and general computer use big time. There may have been external manipulation of my machine as I've been hacked numerous times, and MWB's settings have been hacked and manipulated numerous times, mainly involving turning off layers of security. I've set a user password in MWB now which has helped me get control of MWB, and now this overheating overutilisation of CPU has started. Even with my fan settings changed to Turbo, my CPU's are overheating and shutting down PC at times. I'm disappointed how easy it is to hack MWB and I've had 2 trojan intrusions recently which I've removed. Rather than data destruction, these trojans seemed to be focussed on monitoring my activity , data mining and getting identity data assumedly for banking access. Windows defender picked up these trojans- not MWB. any help with CPU overload would be appreciated.
  2. Why do my “Real Time Protective Layers” keep shutting off from my Premium Malwarebytes 3.2.2? For a whole week now I am getting 5 or 6 daily warnings that they are “shut off” and that I must manually put them on again.
  3. Lately my PC has been acting suspiciously; performing simple tasks such opening an image very slowly and freezing my games minutes after opening them. Although they would eventually unfreeze, it makes playing games almost impossible. Additionally, sometimes, when I attempt to shutdown my PC, an unnamed program or a program named 'G' will prevent my PC from shutting down, although when I reenter my PC no such my program is running in the task manager. My PC specs are listed below. CPU: Intel i5 4460 GPU: Radeon R9 270 Motherboard: Gigabyte B85M-D3H PSU: Corsair 500M RAM: 8gb hyper x fury ddr3
  4. Hi. Since the new 3.x version i've been experiencing this issue. It does not happen everytime but it does most of the time, whenever i need to reboot or shutdown my computer, with windows 10, i see the screen with the rolling balls saying shuting down or rebooting and then it just freezes and stays like that forever. I need to reset or keep the power button pressed. I assume this is because malwarebytes, i already tried to unninstall it multiple times and when i do that, those freezes no longer happen. I really like malwarebytes but i cant have my computer crashing like this everytime. I'll place my mbamservice log. The last time i had to shutdown the computer was in the 6AM events in the log. I even did it twice, and in one of them i closed the program before shutting down my computer, it still happened. MBAMSERVICE.LOG
  5. If I leave my laptop (hpprobook, Windows 7) idle for a while, it shuts down and I have to reboot it. Also, AVAST somtimes notifies me that a potencially malicious code is preventing the scanning of my browser (Mozilla Firefox).
