Malwarebytes Real Time Update


Recommended Posts

I was playing a few online games today and I had a few seconds of lag (latency) issues and I knew from the moment it happened that something was downloading in the background. I have the real time update enabled and checking every 5 minutes. I have seen some other programs before have a way to not scan while CPU usage is above a certain percentage. Since video games obviously require CPU and GPU to play, is it possible to add in a way to have Malwarebytes not update if the usage on either one or separately is above a certain percentage? Hope you guys like this idea because it would be great for me.

Basically, is it possible to have Malwarebytes not update while the CPU or GPU is past a certain percentage.
Hello Xilorator -

We have found that a schedule of searching every 5 minutes for updates is generally a bit too much.

You can limit this to every 1 or even 2 hours, since on average, there will usually be no more than 10 updates per 24 hours.

A very extreme day may have up to 15 + updates, but reality is closer to 10 in most 24 hour periods.

If you are concerned about over-use, please cut back to 2 hourly updates and take some strain off your computer.

I hope this helps, and always feel free to post back if you have other questions :)

Thank You -
