  1. My machine has become unusable in the last couple of days. Malwarebytes uses all my memory and makes it virtually impossible to use the machine for anything else. I uninstalled and re-installed Malwarebytes to make sure I had the most up to date version of everything to see if that made a difference and no change. It starts off slowly using more and more RAM until (within about 3 minutes) it is using 97%+ of the memory and making it nearly impossible to open up any other programs. Just to send an email to Malwarebytes tech support using outlook took me over 30 minutes. I switched from Avast to this because I tried it out and it caught some PUPs that Avast missed so I purchased Malwarebytes. Now that my computer has become virtually useless for anything other than running Malwarebytes, I guess you could say it is more secure. If you can't get email or get on the internet with the machine, it's the ultimate in PC security. Since I have thus far received no response from Malwarebytes, I will have to assume that my best course of action is to remove the product and get something else, cancelling my subscription before it renews. Any suggestions on a good replacement? Please post suggestions here. I'm trying to find a good program that will allow me to still use the machine. Thank you.
