  1. Antimalware Service executable using up to 70% of my cpu


    Hey, so I was playing a game geometry dash yesturday and the game started to randomly stutter and get really laggy even though I was apparently still running at a really high fps. I open my task manager and see the the "Antimalware Service executable" is using 70% of my cpu. It usually sits around 10 - 15% which to me still seems odd but frequently it will jump to the 70's and 80's and cause my games to badly lag. Any way to stop this?"Normal" usage while playing my game has higher cpu and ram usage then my game

    :)

    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.
