Malawarebytes 3.0.6 very slow

Recommended Posts

Ok, take this anyway you wish but, so far, from what I am reading, I have seen nothing but blaming the computers of others and not much else. I have 2 Ryzen R7 systems, one a 1700 and one a 1700X. Both have 32 GB of ram and run off of SSD's at least 480GB in size. The newest version of Malwarebytes is making my systems both slow to a crawl as well. With the service running, programs load very slowly and boot up times are quite slow as well.

However, once the service is disabled, both systems are extremely fast and programs load instantly. Fix your program or not is entirely up to you but, the program now causes issues like the old version of Norton Internet Security did back in 2006 and 2007. The additional protections should still never cause my systems to operate like they are several years old instead of just a few days old.

They are both Windows 10 Pro and I am in IT which means I have been using your program for years. Going forward, I will not enable it in the background, thanks anyways.

Hello @ManofGod and :welcome:

Sorry to hear you're having issues with the program. We admit when there are issues that are our fault, but yes, I'm also very quick to point out (and when possible help users fix their computer) when it's not our fault.

Not here to play the blame game one way or another, just here to help fix the issue if possible. I don't have any systems with this slowness issue you're having, and I've fixed more computers than I can keep track of with various issues, and yes, sadly in most cases, not all, it was something on the user's computer causing the issue. I'm more than happy to take a look at your system and see if I can determine what's going on to cause this issue, I just need to get some logs, please.

Please read the advice from this link and then post back as an attachment the requested logs

Let me get this log as well please.

Create and obtain an mb-check log:

  1. Download mb-check from here and save to your desktop
  2. Run mb-check and within a few second the command window will open and then close
  3. This will produce one log file on your desktop: mb-checkResult.txt
  4. Attach this log file to your post by clicking on the "Drag files here to attach, or choose files..." or simply drag the file to the attachment area

Thank you
