It seems ever since I downloaded MalwareBytes from "www.download.com" it's been lagging my computer when it's loading up.
Now..
Download.com has been known to have it's "adware and trojan" infected software on the website, but I heard MalwareBytes wasn't one of them. . .

Has my recent lagging been from MalwareBytes?

Hello Nia(:.

They should be identicle. However, if you feel the copy from Download.com is not right, you'd best reinstall.

With Regards,
The Panda

If you are using the free version, there is no need to have it load at startup. Enabling the Protection Module feature requires reqistration and purchase of a license key. When a license is purchased, Malwarebytes can also be set to update itself automatically and schedule scans automatically on a daily basis.
