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 & just locked the screen when finished for the day. Things like system wide malware scans were never a problem as I just scheduled them when I knew I would be away, usually late at night. I no longer leave the PC on. Problem now is that as soon as I turn it on for the day, Malware Bytes (among others) jump immediately into action and gobble up huge portions of my PC’s resources, causing very noticeable and bothersome lags in performance for the things I want to use the PC for. This in spite of a 4.0 GHz, 6-Core CPU, 16GB of RAM and a SSD System drive. A task as simple as just loading a program can take as long as 2-3 minutes where it normally takes only 7-10 SECONDS! My question is this: Is there a FIX for this? If not, is there a way to setup MB to either limit its use of resources (preferred) OR, if that is not possible, set MB to turn off the PC after I *MANUALLY* initiate a scan?

Hi I'm having some really strange issues with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware... I'm running W7 64: A few days ago I saw my MW wasn't on the system tray and I wasn't getting any warning for any prohibited websites, so I decided to do a clean re-install using mbam-clean-126.96.36.1991.exe and activate the newly installed version using my key and, only one day later I'm right back where I started, which is: I can't see the icon in the system tray I can see that mbam.exe *32 AND MBAMService.exe are running in the Task Manager but... I don't get any warnings at all. When I execute the desktop icon, nothing happens. Malwarebytes also disappeared from my wife's PC a couple of weeks ago (she just had it reinstalled and we'll see how that goes) I think I'm not protected now and this is really frustrating because I feel like I need to be vigilant constantly so that "something" doesn't go wrong... Can someone help me please? Thanks
