Same here.

Ram usage slowly climbs to 15+GB (97%) and cpu is constantly at 13-20% usage (6700k 4.6ghz) and a short time after the ram is full it locks up and blackscreens, after which it either closes itself or windows (10) closes it.

After that it restarts and the cycle continues.

Manually ending the task just causes it to reopen, so I had to uninstall it to make my pc usable again.

PLZ FIX.

Same problem here.

Started around 5:05pm when, according to its log, MB did an update. Since then, the service is using 25% CPU load constantly (one full CPU core), and the memory usage is slowly going up until all physical memory is used.

I killed the service via task manager and disabled the service in Service Manager for now. Please advise what to do.

I can't even quit the program in the task bar. It stays open permanently.  Was shocked to open task manager to see it using 15gb of memory.. it seems to be the latest malware definition update that does it, as before I updated definitions the program only used 300mb. 

 

Can anyone help me close the program? I tried net stop mbamservice.exe and it won't close, I tried right click close mbam and it won't close.

I had to disable and stop the service quite quickly using the Services applet after rebooting otherwise it won't work if you let it go too long.

Literally created an account to say - me too!! 

In the last half hour whilst browsing the web my PC has crashed. Had to manually reboot. Googling the symptoms brought me here, checked Malwarebytes memory usage in task manager and lo and behold, it was climbing sky high! Have quit and disabled, so far so good.

Wonder why it's hit everyone at the same time?!!!

One of my PCs began freezing up and it has 8 GB RAM. My high-end PC has 16 GB RAM and was spared from the lockups, but its RAM usage was approaching 50%. Uninstalled Malwarebytes from both PCs until further notice. I'll let Kaspersky Total Security handle the malware protection going forward. This is unacceptable.

Malwarebytes highjacks all of my 16GB RAM. I can't close Malwarebytes, not even in the task manager. It keeps popping up!

Closing Malwarebytes (right click in task bar, close Malwarebytes) remarkably reduces RAM usage temporarly. It falls down to half of my RAM (around 7GB) and immediatly ramps up so I can do some work during 3-5 minutes. Weird.

Switching off protection against exploits and/or malware doesn't help. Web protection is impossible to switch on.

 

Looking at the speed people call in here it is a major problem. Come on, solve this FAST!

3 hard resets later, and reboots with it saying Malwarebytes protections were shut off (multiple settings were off) and I came looking for answers.  And had to go through the rigamarole to get access here so I could say something! I turned MWB off from the little icon in the box off the taskbar where it stays hidden. I couldn't even move my mouse as it sucked the majority of my RAM until it locked up my system.  I was in the middle of something and lost it.  I couldn't save anything.

This is not a glitch.

I am receiving a warning that the Real-Time Protection option is turned off, and the MBAMService.exe process is gradually consuming all available RAM/Memory available at an alarming rate. It has crashed my system once, after consuming over 26GB of memory. 

I also admin a MWB Business/Enterprise installation at my employer, and am now receiving nearly continuous Malwarebyte Alerts and Notifications of blocked website attempts (office is closed).

Yes, Quit from tray is the fastest way to stop MB madness!  I had to reboot our PCs before I figured out the cause was MB.
