Malwarebytes 4.1 and Sourcetree


Recommended Posts

Can you please look at how Malwarebytes interacts with Sourcetree?

https://www.sourcetreeapp.com/

 

With Malwarebytes turned on, many of Sourcetree's operations are 5-6x slower. Just bringing up a local repo takes 6 seconds vs. <1 sec if Malwarebytes is off.

Hi,

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes for Windows Help forum.

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following:

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance
  • For use when you don't need or want to create a ticket with Malwarebytes
  • For use when you want to perform local troubleshooting on your own

How to use the Advanced Options:

Spoiler
  1. Download Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Double-click mb-support-X.X.X.XXXX.exe to run the program
    • You may be prompted by User Account Control (UAC) to allow changes to be made to your computer. Click Yes to consent.
  3. Place a checkmark next to Accept License Agreement and click Next
  4. Navigate to the Advanced tab
  5. The Advanced menu page contains four categories:
    • Gather Logs: Collects troubleshooting information from the computer. As part of this process, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) is run to perform a complete diagnosis. The information is saved to a file on the Desktop named mbst-grab-results.zip and can be added as an email attachment or uploaded to a forum post to assist with troubleshooting the issue at hand.
    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.
  6. To provide logs for review click the Gather Logs button
  7. Upon completion, click OK
  8. A file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your Desktop
  9. Please attach the file in your next reply.
  10. To uninstall all Malwarebytes Products, click the Clean button.
  11. Click the Yes button to proceed. 
  12. Save all your work and click OK when you are ready to reboot.
  13. After the reboot, you will have the option to re-install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows.
  14. Select Yes to install Malwarebytes.
  15. Malwarebytes for Windows will open once the installation completes successfully.

I've observed SourceTree performing poorly as well. I thought it was just a SourceTree problem, but it seems the turning off Malwarebytes improves performance for me as well. Perhaps it's not SourceTree that's the problem, but Git since it's very I/O intensive?

Source code for all my projects is in different folders under C:\Repos.  I excluded C:\Repos.

Also exclude the folder where Sourcetree.exe is located.

Also I suggest if the program connects to the web also exclude it (the exe) from apps that connect to the internet.

Okay, this is kind of strange. I turned off ransomware protection and Sourcetree sped up as expected.  But when I turned ransomware protection back on, Sourcetree did not slow back down.  Even when I exited the program and relaunched it, Sourcetree had fast performance.

My guess is something is wrong with the ransomware protection. I'm seeing the Sourcetree issue on Windows 10 v1909, but when I tried to upgrade to v2004, I saw problems with other programs as well.

Yeah, I'm not upgrading to 2004 until things have settled down. 🙂 I'll see if the performance improvement survives a reboot.

Supposedly this will resolve the issue, but I have not tried it yet and therefore cannot confirm it:
