Had similar issue. Tried an answer I found on Google: (For MBAM Premium, that I have) : Turn off / quit MBAM . Restart. Then all seems ok

PS thanks for link. My PC, a powerful one, had a sort of BSOD with a message :

the process has terminated because it could not allocate additional memory

Maybe this was due to the MBAM issue? The event viewer said: Error 41 KernelPower System

Any views from other MBAM ers?

Quite a few posts on forum regarding pcs crashing due to high memory usage

They've just issued an update. Will convert back to premium to check. It crashed my old Toshiba twice :(

Looks OK now.

Working ok now for me; update current so not sure when last one was installed as there seems no way of seeing the history of updates such as is quoted on the MBAM forum that martd7 provided.

Do PC's recover, as mine did on restart?

Same problem on all my machines with MWB installed. uninstalled MWB on one and everything seems normal now on that one. Sister in law just rang saying she has same problem. Think I will just leave everything until they have sorted it out tomorrow.

alanrwood they've issued an update lately so just check for updates manually on MBAM.

Just been to MWB web site and downloaded latest version and it is still the old version.
