This may need to be forwarded to Malwarebytes' engineers, as there's nothing about it anywhere on the internet. I'm currently running a virus scan after getting a disturbingly accurate spam email, conclusively proving that someone put a keylogger on my computer. At this moment, Malwarebytes has scanned 1,876,069 files, over the past 186:22:04 hours. The scan managed to complete the first 400,000 files in the first 5 or so hours, but was only up to 750,000 files by 23 hours. Currently, the scan is managing a little better than one file per second, scanning speed. If I pause the scanner for a while, when I resume, it goes back to the full 1000 files/second scanning speed, but only manages to maintain that for a few seconds, with the number of seconds dependent on how many minutes I paused the scanner. I'm curious to know what causes the slowdown, and why the sudden boost in speed when a scan is unpaused. I wonder if this information would help Malwarebytes' engineers design a faster scan, or if this is simply a limitation of the hardware "caching" on my system's processor, etc. My processor is currently only using about 16%, and my hard drive is seeing widely fluctuating usage (and that's with a lot of browser tabs open). I'm wondering why, since the scanner is set to use "maximum system resources", it slows down and leaves so many system resources unused. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. :)
Good afternoon, lately my internet connection started being really slow so I thought it could be caused by a malware, then I decided to install and run Malwarebytes on my PC since Windows Defender didn't help me at all. This problem only occurs temporally, then my connection works normally for a few hours, so I don't think it's about hardware. Malwarebytes found many threats which I've already deleted, but I'll post its scan log anyway. It solved an issue that made the Google website be slow, but my internet is still failing a lot. Of course, I've been talking to my internet provider company, but they found no issues, and my speed should be 300 Mb/s as it's shown by the speed tests but it's clearly not. Furthermore this is not happening to any other devices connected via Wi-Fi. At this point I'm totally lost, so I'd be grateful if you could help me. Thank you very much.
