I just noticed this today because I was having trouble with my Google Chrome browser on this computer. I checked task manager and noticed mbamservice.exe is running at over 106,000 k of memory. On my laptop, it runs at about 34,000. I rebooted the computer and Google Chrome now works again, but mbamservice.exe is still running high.

Windows XP SP3, Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Firewall (behind a router with a firewall). All exceptions have been added to MSE and MBAM so they're supposed to be ignoring each other.

So...clean uninstall/reinstall route?
