MalwareBytes is using all of my RAM? It keeps climbing up rapidly.

So today I was playing some games and I realized that I was dipping in frames quite a lot. I went in to task manager only to find that MalwareBytes was using all of my RAM. I closed it and re-opened it and it just starts climbing up with RAM usage. Here is a video:

I have uninstalled it for the time being, and I don't even know if I remember my password. BTW I have the premium version.

Thank you.

The obvious thing that comes to mind seeing as you said you have the premium version is did you pay for it for real, or is there a hack/crack going on? Because if you downloaded it and used something sketchy to activate it, I'm sure that's the problem.

I am sure I have the right one. I’m not that much of a noob. I’ve been using it for a year and a half, no problems

Yeah, I've uninstalled it for now. I've only got 16GB and it eats it up FAST.
 


Good choice , will slow systems down quite a bit at that rate. I removed it from my wife's computer till it's fixed.
