    Antimalware Service Executable High CPU 30%+


    Hi there, I've watched half a million videos and read a million more forum posts on how to resolve this issue such as going into regedit, gpedit disabling real-time protection etc. I'm quite desperate now as 30% CPU of an i7 7700 is quite ridiculous. I have no underlying viruses, I've used Malwarebytes as well as other anti-virus software to fully scan my PC and I can't find anything suggesting there's a virus.


    Please help me resolve this issue, I've tried enabling Windows Defender as well as disabling it; cleaning my temp files all the standard answers you can think of I've done; I need some real experience to help me fix this issue.


    Many thanks,


    James.

  2. Antimalware Service Executable High CPU

    I am experiencing high CPU usage on the Antimalware Service Executable on my Surface Pro i7 1 tb (2017). This has been going on for a couple of months. It makes my computer almost unusable. The CPU sits at 100% any time I try to use it. The CPU has
    over 50% usage when nothing is being run in the foreground all the time (24 hours a day). The April update was just installed and the Antimalware Service Executable is still running at over 40% of the CPU utilization.

    Antimalware Service Executable, high cpu, memory and disk usage

    I'm having the high CPU usage and it appears that antimalware service executable is to blame. Yes, I had Norton installed and used the removal tool. What do you think could be the problem?
