    I'm using virtual XP (VXP) on a Windows 7 machine.

    Malwarebytes mbamservice.exe is using over 220,000K of memory as shown
    in Task Manager (TM).

    CPU usage is 0-8%.

    The following MBAM Advanced Settings are unchecked:
    "Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware with Windows"
    "Enable self-protection module"
    "Reduce priority of scans to improve multitasking"

    MSCONFIG has MBAMService unchecked.

    Questions:

    1. Why is Mbamservice.exe using so much memory?

    2. Is this normal?

    3. If I've unchecked all that I've noted above, why is Mbamservice.exe still loading?

    4. How do I reduce the amount of memory Mbamservice.exe is using?

    5. How can I keep it from loading upon Windows starting up?

    6. Any other suggestions?

    Oh yes,

    HALP !!! :eek:
