Looks like I'll have to remove Malwarebytes permanently. This is not the first time I had problems with it. And it's the premium version. I'll just have to find out how well Kaspersky can handle everything on its own. Malwarebytes, you just lost a 5-year customer.:angry:

I had noticed some issues with the top of my browser bar and went to attempt a scan to investigate when i had noticed the real time protection was off and thought something was wrong, so i was doing a full scan with MBAM when i noticed that the memory usage was off the charts and jumped on the forums, which brought me here, i suspect i was very close to my computer crashing, I've killed Malwarebytes in task manager and stopped it from turning itself back on in services. came here to report my experience and hope that something is done about this very soon.

I had to the same issue. I uninstalled for now, and the memory usage issue has gone away.

It also disabled my website protection and would not allow me to turn it back on.

I deactivated the Malwarebyte service in the Windows Computer Management fore the time being after it sucked up 90% of my RAM.

<windows><X> then "Computer Managment", then "Services and applications" at the bottom left and then " Services", select "Malwarebytes Service", right-click and select properties. Select "Start type= Deactivated" and ok. If then still running, kill it in the task manager and it will not restart.

This is obviously no solution but should prevent your computer from crashing until MWB have come back with a solution. You may then need to change it back to "automatic".

I had the same problem. RAM fills up to 98% max, program closes then my computer goes black and froze. First I thought my hard drive was going to die. After reboot, i was able to take this screenshot.

High memory usage here as well.  Never had a problem like this with the program.  My system was running fine last night.  Woke up this morning and it was locked up.  Restarted, and it was almost non-responsive.  When I finally got task manager to come up, I saw it was using 11GB out of 16GB of memory.  My system couldn't breathe.  I killed Malwarebytes from my taskbar and everything returned to normal.  I started it back up again and watched it slowly slurp up all available memory.  I also saw notifications that Malwarebytes protections were being turned off, probably due to not enough memory to run.  I'll be uninstalling this until a fix is made available.
