Should I leave Malwarebytes running in the background.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So my Malwarebytes Premium Trial has just ended and I was wondering whether I should leave it running in the background since all of the premium background features eg. real time protection are not available with the free version of Malwarebytes. 

 

Malwarebytes takes up anywhere form 50mb to 100mb of ram so it is really tempting to stop it from running in the background. 

 

Thanks.

No. No point if you don't have the subscription.

How short of RAM are you that 100MB will be missed?


Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!
