    Cant turn off Defender or Antimalware.


    I've tried all the ways on the web to turn off Defender and Antimalware. But I can't kill either application. Antimalware runs all the time taking a lot of resources.

  2. WINDOWS DEFENDER is turned off

    Hi Ahmed,

    Since you're not able to turn on Windows Defender as well, we'd like to know if you have made any changes recently prior to this issue. In the meantime, you may follow the steps below on how to turn on Windows Defender manually:

    • Type Windows Defender in the Search bar and press
      Enter.
    • Go to Settings and make sure that the Turn on real-time protection recommended option is turned on.
    Same thing with the other members who are having the same issue, we suggest that you check if the service was setup to
    Automatic in the Services option. Please follow the steps that we've provided last
    September 3, 2017.

    Let us know how if you were able to turn it on properly by changing the Startup type to Automatic.
     
  3. Antimalware Service Executable taking up high CPU for several hours!

    No, it usually did not for me either, until today.

    Posting system specs is a little off-topic, because my problem is that even though I do this step:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...nder-antivirus

    - The Antimalware Service Executable still runs high. I have a pretty good CPU and this has never been a problem until today.

    My computer is neither new or old. It was installed 1½ years ago. I never had any problems until today.

    I did this step:

    That "note" is my problem... it still scans, and it is still scanning while I am writing this.

    I already set the Exclusions to the Windows Defender path. Did not work either.
