Anything using 360 mb of ram is not killing your system. Your specs show 4 gigs

mbam is using 252 meg. my other apps are using another 2.5 gig so in all i'm using 70% of my total ram, which is where things stop moving for me. but i asked if 252 meg of ram usage is normal for mbam; all the comments i've seen say it is not.

Are you sure you understand the difference between MB and GB.
Post the picture I requested so we can take a look.

My system at the present time is using about 2 gigs of ram.

ausdavid I have no way of knowing how knowledgeable you are on such things. You have only been on the forum a short time and we haven't had a chance to learn much about each other.
No insult was intended.

The reason I ask was your concern over 1/4 gig of ram with Malwarebytes Premium.

If it was my computer I would be looking at 108 processes you have running.
That is quite a few. The more processes running the more ram you use.

Just for comparing I have MSE and Malwarebytes Premium active.

Just Foxfire with this forum at the present time and I using 2 gigs of ram.
I do have msconfig Startup to a minimum and Services Non Microsoft to just Malwarebytes.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I believe mbam does check for updates on a interesting auto schedule every 10 minutes last I checked,
You might look at those settings or auto updating tasks,
They can make a network drag a bit as you can imagine any unknown operation that requires internet bandwidth will disrupt other internet operations,
Settings/ Automated scheduling/ Updates/ look at the frequency it's set on,
Cheers.
