mbamservice.exe taking 100mb+ of memory


Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

Hello and :welcome:
 
What are the hardware specs for your computer?  If you have a modern system with 4GB of RAM then it's not a lack of memory that is the issue. 
Many users think that it's a crime to use the memory of the system, well then why buy memory if you're not going to use it?

 

Please run the following scans and we'll see if we can figure out what's going on but if it's memory alone then 100MB is normal.
 
Please create an mbam-check log:

  • Download mbam-check.exe from here and save it to your desktop
  • Double-click on mbam-check.exe to run it, it should then open a log file
  • Please do not copy and paste the entire contents of the log into your next post, instead please attach the log CheckResults.txt file which should now be located on your desktop to your next post

 

 

 

Next, Please run the following scanner and send back the logs.

Download DDS from one of the locations below and save to your Desktop
dds.scr
dds.com

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.
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:
    • DDS.txt
    • Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop
  • Please include the following logs in your next reply as an attachment: DDS.txt and Attach.txt
  • You can ignore the note about zipping the Attach.txt file and just post it or attach it.

Also to add: it's a problem not because of the memory it takes up, but for significantly slowing down the computer while doing simple tasks such as Microsoft Onenote. Also, I just noticed that this problem is reduced when I'm NOT on Skype video chatting with someone. I have a feeling it has to do with the fact that I'm Skyping someone. However, this problem did not occur prior to installing Malwarebytes.

Based on the Event Logs I would say the computer appears to be infected or at least has some heavy software conflicts going on that need to be cleared up.
 
I would suggest following the advice from the topic here Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers and having one of the Experts assist you with looking into your issue.
