Too much RAM used...

Recommended Posts


I think Anti-Malware too heavy in terms of RAM used.

In particular, mbamservice.exe uses constantly over 100MB, which is the worst process running on my XP pro SP3 system...

Beside, mbam.exe is equally heavy, but not constantly used.

I'm sorry but at this time that is the amount of resources the program uses. That said though unless you're having actual memory starvation that alone should not cause an issue for your computer.

Please run the following scanner and send back the logs and we'll see if there is anything we can do to possibly reduce resource usage.

Download DDS from one of the locations below and save to your Desktop



Temporarily disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.

How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.

Then double click dds.scr or dds.com to run the tool, on Vista or Win 7 right click and select Run as administrator

Click the Run button if prompted with an Open File - Security Warning dialog box.

A black DOS console should open and run for a moment.

    When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
  1. DDS.txt
  2. Attach.txt

  • Save both reports to your desktop
  • Please include the following logs in your next reply: DDS.txt and Attach.txt
    You can ignore the note about zipping the Attach.txt file in most cases.
