Malwarebytes Trial using 70% of my CPU

Recommended Posts

So i decided to enable the free trial of the Pro, that lets it run as a background process. Since then, ive noticed that it is using an absurdly large amount of my CPU (sits at 70% from first boot). I ran several scans with it, both in safe mode and in chameleon, and it hasnt found anything. I clicked on a bad link a few days ago, and ran scans as a percaution. The only thing it found were some old install files when i use to use ZoneAlarm firewall (which i never installed on this computer). 


I am running MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) and have added both MAB to that, and MSE to MB, but it doesnt seem to have affected the high CPU useage from mbam.exe. The I/O Other (within task manager) is constantly counting up. I dono what its doing but it seems to be doing far more than it should be. 


Can anyone help me figure out whats going on?

Hello lyianx and :welcome:
To begin, the experts will likely want to analyze the following logs:

  1. Please read the topic Diagnostic Logs and then individually ATTACH the 3 requested logs in your next reply to this thread only.
  2. The 3 files, from Step 1, to be individually ATTACHED from your desktop are CheckResults.txt, FRST.txt and Addition.txt. Please do not Zip or Copy and Paste them into a reply. Please do not alter, any FRST categories as the configuration is well suited for this forum.

Thank You.
