I had to leave Malwarebytes, I have premium with all protections on. The first I notice is sound delay when deleting email from Microsoft Outlook 2010. After some one day disks is slower. The third day, responce time is slow with every action. Prosessor use is low, PC just waits before doing it work. The third day I have to restart PC, and restart is very slow until it's of. Sound delay starts with Malwarebytes. I have W7-64 with 32Gb ram. Some months ago Malwarebytes was eating all memory, but this is passed now. Haveing a paid version I expect it to work properly.

Are you using the latest version, 3.4.5 of Malwarebytes?  I ask because previous versions, including 3.4.4, were known to have some performance issues similar to those you describe.  If you aren't running version 3.4.5, please download and install it from here, rebooting to complete the installation if prompted.

Let us know if that resolved the issue or not, and if not, then please proceed with posting the logs requested in the above automated reply below where it says technical issues so that we might take a look at your Malwarebytes installation to help us determine what might be causing the issues.

OK, so just to verify, you are running version 3.4.5 of Malwarebytes, is that correct?  You can check the program version by hovering your mouse over the Malwarebytes tray icon, by opening the program and looking at the top of the program window, or by opening the program and going to Settings>About and viewing the information there.  Here are examples from my own system/installation:

I have the latest, and yesterday I was silly and started it up again. Today I pay the price. Outlook refuses to start, Malwarebytes refuses to leave. Taskmanager does not fing the file. Explorer isn't to be found. Other disks does not respond. At restart Windows, 10 minutes (I have SSD) Starting took 15 sec. When things does not work, there is no unnormal use of CPU. I cannot use Malwarebytes until this is fixed. My college also has problems after accessing internet his computer gets slow.

Filedates: mbam.exe  27 Mars.  Most exe and DDL is from this date. And yes, 3.4.5. 3.4.4 was not a problem. An earlier version did eat memory, but else it was nice.
