You can control the maximum amount of processing power Malwarebytes uses during a manual or scheduled system scan.
Go to Settings > Advanced > CPU usage, where you can set the CPU usage to:
- High (Recommended) - Uses up to 100% of a single CPU core for faster scans.
- Medium - Uses approximately 50% of a single CPU core for a slower scan.
- Low - Uses approximately 25% of a single CPU core for the slowest scan.
