Malwarebytes Enterprise Clients - High disk usage on start-up - Windows 10

Recommended Posts


We are having ongoing issues with our Malwarebytes clients on multiple systems where the computers after Malwarebytes client is installed, it grinds the pc's to a holt on start up for a good 5-10minutes causing 99-100% disk usage.

We are positive it is Malwarebytes, as we have tested this on a brand new high end laptop with 7th Gen Intel i7, 32GB ram, solid state drive, fresh up to date Windows 10.  The system was lightening fast upon booting into Windows, we then installed Malwarebytes client, the system was then very slow. After removing Malwarebytes correctly, and rebooting, the system was back to very fast start up as expected.

This is also a problem on a wide range of other Windows 10 systems we have installed the client on, with varying specifications.

It seems worse on systems that have the latest anniversary edition of Windows 10. However, we have also noticed high disk usage from systems with windows 7 and 8.1 with the client installed.

Anyone else experiencing this or have a work around.

We have obviously tried every possible way of reinstalling, delaying the MB service from starting, clean windows installs, removing anti exploit.

We are out of ideas and it is gving us and the product a bad impression when pushing the product onto our customer systems, and causing their systems to run worse than before at start up.
