What are you saying
I see mbamservice uses "a lot" of CPU when I boot or wake a system...

Can you post a screen print of what you see causing your issue ?

Does FAST SWITCH USER really allow this behavior? I could leave VMWare with Linux running as a server in the background, while allowing other coworkers in the office to use the computer on separate accounts?
