Hello and Welcome!

What makes you think your install may not be valid?

I'm pretty sure it's valid, just doing some due diligence. I see somewhat high memory usage from time to time. There's a lot of posts on the board about a previous issue related to high CPU/memory usage for mbamservice.exe so I just wanted to make extra sure :)

If you're experiencing an issue like that the quickest way to check the file would be to verify its version info.  Also, I believe such issues were actually caused by the drivers loaded under the service, not the service itself so those would be the files to verify if you're troubleshooting a possible mixed install of the software.  If you use the Malwarebytes Support Tool as mentioned in the first reply to your post to create the requested logs, they will show the version info for all of Malwarebytes' files, including the drivers and the service.

It's not a big issue to be honest (if it's an issue at all). I just happened to notice the service consuming slightly higher memory which led me to do some investigation. One thing led to another and since I'm a little paranoid I thought I'd just ask on the forum if someone can post the file hashes for that file. @exile360 or @Firefox do you mind posting the hashes for me so I can give my paranoia a rest :D

Note that if the hash was wrong, I'm pretty sure most of your protections would fail due to our built-in security checks.

Hello @Steve1982:

You may always make this verification yourself using Virus Total.  The existence and validity Digital Signature may also be verified.

HTH

(Oops, previous post got cut off)

Thanks @1PW !! I did use VirusTotal to check the file previously and that is indeed the exact file I have on my system. I was a bit bothered by the fact that it had a -7 community score because someone (for some reason) downvoted it but I see you just upvoted it. Thanks for checking and confirming :)

Perfect, thanks @dcollins ... that is indeed the exact file I have. Awesome! Love these forums.

I'd still suggest checking the drivers if you're concerned about a performance issue being caused by an improper install.  Those have much more of an effect on resource usage as well as known issues/bugs etc. than the EXE's do because they are what's actually used for protection, they just load under the service as an interface between the system, the drivers and the UI for messaging, alerts and actions like quarantining detected threats, but the drivers do all the heavy lifting.
