Too much trouble with Malwarebytes


Recommended Posts

This is copy of the email I sent to support@malwarebytes.com 6/27/20. I received no reply. I will not again pay for Malwarebytes. I'll just use the free version or just move to Avast or just consider Windows Defender to be good enough.

For no reason that I know of Malwarebytes slowed my computer. Every keystroke takes 1-5 minutes but everything works. My Computer Repair Specialist advised me to uninstall Malwarebytes to find if that was the problem and it was!!. So what do I do now? Otherwise, it has been working fine.

Also, I'm not going to waste any more of my time verifying what version I purchased or anything like that. The reason I did the paid version is I though I would get better support service than the the free version but you guys provide no service at all.

I had mentioned in a previous post in one of your topics that trying to send an email is not the best way to get support. This forum or the support desk are the best ways to get support.

We are always responsive here on the forums and can solve issues faster.

There is a new beta version that corrects the slowness.

I had to uninstall my Malwarebytes so how do I get that downloaded again?

You will have to enable beta updated to get the fixed version after install.

You can opt in to receive beta updates by launching Malwarebytes 4, going to Settings > General > Beta updates and then toggle the switch so the setting is enabled.

After you've opted in to the beta updates, manually check for updates from that same screen: Settings > General > Application Updates and then click the Check for Updates button.

Thanks for that tip. Mine looks like that now. Previously I did extra Check For Updates after enabling beta in Settings. All seems to be well now.

I glad things are working correctly. If you have any further issues come back here (the Forums) for assistance.
