Using too much memory ... malwarebytes becoming a Virus?

Recommended Posts

The two Malwarebytes processes take roughly 265MB on a Windows 7 machine, and a bit more on a Windows 10 machine, and 50-70% more when a scan is in progress.  If yours takes more, you might want to go over to the Malware Removal forum and see what they can do for you.

I should take this down .... it was not Malwarebytes and I apologize for the accusation.

the malware process was using the most memory, but, i actually had a Virtual Machine going in the background (I forgot was going) and blamed it on my top memory hog.

Not sure why the virtual machine wasn't at the top ... at least i have solved this and put MWB back on ... sorry.  delete this thread if you want.  Gonzo .. going for BEER tomorrow ... ;)
