Constant 10% CPU usage since installation of Malwarebytes - Stuttering in games


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon.

 

So Wednesday I decided to buy some licenses of Malwarebytes Premium, but since the installation I noticed that the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (32-bit) process is constantly using 10% of the CPU, even if it's not performing a scan or anything.

 

I've also noticed that if I have it running, every game I play stutters a lot (there are no FPS drops, just stuttering).

 

Is there a reason for the program to be constantly using 10% of the CPU? Is it normal? Even my F-Secure Internet Security has almost no impact whatsoever.
