    Windows Defender hogs memory, what is best solution?


    I have always used Windows Defender until I found my PC running too slow. I looked at the operations and Defender was near the top of the list. I read about it hogging memory and shut it off. My PC ran like a dream.

    I stay clear from Bitdefender, Avast and others because of malware and advertising hi-jinx.

    I found the following post on the issue (It appears dangerous to try without better directions)

    Thanks,

    I solved "audiodg.exe is leaking memory on HP Zbook Windows 7"

    I think I solved "audiodg.exe is leaking memory on HP Zbook Windows 7".

    Here's what I discovered and performed:

    1. Do not use Zbook’s [Fn] [f8] button to turn off microphone – as it will trigger audiodg.exe to increasingly hog memory to as much as 8GB on Windows 7.
    2. Websites such as youtube.com running on browser will also trigger audiodg.exe to increasingly hog memory to as much as 8GB.
    3. If you need to turn off microphone, use Windows 7 “Speakers” /”Volume Mixer” to mute it or to mute sounds.
    4. If audiodg.exe hogs over 200 MB of memory – shut it down using Windows task manager -> “Services tab” -> stop AudioSrv.
      Then restart it. Audiodg.exe memory usage will drop back down to 25MB.

    1. Run Windows app “DTS Audio Control Panel”
      . Disable “Beam Forming” and “Audio Enhancement”.
