If the malwarebytes service is running the computer will lock up after a minute or two. I can stop the service and the computer runs fine. I turned off all services and then turned them back on one at a time, as soon as I turn on Malwarebytes the computer locks up. I even tried to just turn on malwarbytes with all other services off and it locked up.
I'm running Malwarebytes 1.50.1.1100, data base 5782, finger print 300162. Also running AVG 2011 free edition.
Thanks, Fred
