MalwareBytes "Service hogging" RAM


Recommended Posts

Running Windows 10 Pro version 10.0.15063.674 on my X64 PC. The last Win update (today) caused conflict with Malwarebytes, causing VERY slow startup and launching of aps. Using ctrl-alt-del and seeing what was the memory hog, Malwarebytes "service" was the culprit; shutting MWB Service down eliminated the problem, but I lost the real-time protection. Never experienced this before.
