is RTProtectionDaemon a legit part of Malwarebytes?

Recommended Posts

There is really no need to install Malwarebytes to disable the RTProtection daemon. That can easily be done from the dashboard. And you don't need to subscribe as long as you don't require premium features.

My trial expires in a few days. However, RTProtectionDeamon is really an issue here as I see it is taking up 90% or more CPU from time to time.

I'm running the latest on macOS 10.14.1 and Malwarebytes 3.4.29

Any help appreciated.

After installing OSX Mojave,  RTProtectionDaemon now uses between 90% and 99% of my CPU and slows my MacBook Pro down so far that Office 365 will not execute.   (It didn’t do this before the OS upgrade from OSX Sierra) .....  Killing the process (RTProtectionDaemon) restores normal function of the Mac …..  Any suggestions?
