If you close out of the window and let the scan happen in the background it should not use as many resources. I have used CleanMem for a couple of years but finally decided to inactivate it recently : no more problems when I do multitasking because I had such problems at this moment , everything goes faster. To say that this has been resolved is an overstatement when reading businesses that have been affected badly. Very strange though that you're having that problem. For example, I had to kill explorer. Please can you explain, why on earth you did not email your paid up users as a minimum a few days ago or yesterday with details of this issue. Something that compelled the user to manually disable their protection would be a good start.
While connected, I will look at your system to determine the best course of action to take. It seems to be faster than v. It wasn't until I actually disabled every function of the Malwarebytes software on my computer that — glory be! Hope my late night writing makes sense. Now get rid of powershell. You know, the usual stuff one spews from their pedestal. I'll be talking to my consumer customers as time goes on so that they can replace their anti-malware software with something more reliable. I bought two licenses just they switched from lifetime to subscription-based one for my desktop which had lost its registration, and one for my laptop.
Besides this, I can't think of anything else other than trying to speed things up yourself: Works in 10 too! It's hardly a small issue. It was this that prompted me to try later version in Virtual Machine only, and that had no such issues. Memory usage is still pretty high however, especially when compared to the latest 2. So if anyone is getting that, just shut down and start it up again, and it will scan. But here are a few useful ways I suggest that you can use to resolve this irritating issue on your Windows computer: 1.
It turned out however that the update did not resolve the issue for users. Hopefully all affected users has been taken care of by now, if set to auto update, should be fine now. That does still leave the problem that unless a scan was requested by the user, it should remain as unobtrusive as practical. As far as I can recall this is the second time in many many years something went wrong with an update. Now click on Yes to backup the license key and start the cleaning process.
Thought maybe my ram was dying, and I checked event viewer and saw Mbam service using up all my ram. The computer that I do maintenance on for my brother has had a problem with the web protection not enabling for a while. I have waited over 10 minutes for the 'mbamservice. I updated this on Saturday and when I opened Process Explorer highly recommended I could see it opening up hundreds of versions of itself. It installed a number of call home routines and became a major annoyance.
Antimalware Service Executable is a Windows background process that is used by Windows Defender. Another Windows Defender feature that may be responsible for slowing down your system is its Full Scan, which performs a comprehensive check of all files on your computer. However, I gave it a try again recently and the program works well with only one bug for me. I recently reduced my bandwidth to a download speed of 66Mbps and everything is updating without any problems, so far. It uses almost no resources and catches everything. Deactivation before running mbam-clean was the second step in that process.
Turn Off Windows Defender With Registry Editor Now close the registry editor and restart windows to take effect the changes. It takes a short while and then runs the scan. I have used it for several years, but, of course, it's not free. I disabled my Malwarebytes as it was the only way to stop the spike in memory use, which was followed by a crash.

I agree that they could have at least posted something on their web site so we wouldn't waste most of the day trying to fix things that weren't broken. This morning it looked like it had been uninstalled.
It was very buggy at the time, and I removed it all and stuck with the original software for many months, re-instating Anti-Exploit and Anti-Malware as separate installs. For what it is worth, I have had limited success doing repair installs on severely corrupted systems. Clients were pissed, but if this had happened on a weekday there would have been hell to pay. Obviously things like this should not happen. Background scans should be just that.
