Hey, everyone! I hope you are all doing well!

A few days ago I noticed that when I try to run a scan with Malwarebytes, System Interrupts get a high usage and the PC gets really slow.
Is this normal?

I use Avast as well, and coincidentally, it was at the same period when I activated the firewall feature that Avast now makes available for everyone.
I use Malwarebytes just for scans.

I didn't download anything malicious nor visit any dangerous sites.
I also use ADWCleaner and Rkill to make sure that there are no malware activity, and they, together with Malwarebytes and Avast, reported nothing at all.

Just a quick question to know if this is normal. Thank you for your time.

Yes, it is common to bog the system down a bit while performing a Malwarebytes scan. Not unusual at all.
Thank you, my friend!

I also forgot to mention that the PC runs smoothly too. No problems at all. It was just during the scans. Had me worried a bit so I decided to consult here.
