    Deleting Emails- Defender slows up the process / CPU use jumps way up


    I decided to give Defender a try about a week ago and deleted Avast A/V.I use Pegasus for my email software and when I delete a group of emails, the CPU usage jumps way up and Pegasus says NOT RESPONDING for quite a while. Task manager shows that Antimalware Service Executable / Defender starts using significant CPU!I'm not downloading emails which is clearly something I need A/V protection for, I'm just moving emails from one folder to the Deleted Folder.Is this normal?Is there a way to stop this?Thanks

    :)

  2. deleting emails

    Hi Cammy,

    There are ways to delete all of your email messages at once. One of these is by using the functions or controls on your keyboard, which also applies when deleting a large number of files for our other Office products.

    You may follow the steps below to complete the deletion process of your emails:

    • Press the Ctrl+A button on your keyboard.
    • Once everything is highlighted, it means your emails are ready to be deleted.
    • Press the Delete button.

    Let us know if you have other questions.

    Windows Defender - high CPU and disk usage

    Thank you very much for your quick response. I've taken all steps you suggested. This is the outcome:

    • Add a process exclusion

      Unfortunately, this didn't work. I added both a path and a process exclusion now.The task scheduler for
    • Defender looks like this for me:

      Deleting Emails- Defender slows up the process / CPU use jumps way up 500e27c6-8f11-48d6-9b5f-12b278352fcf.png

    • It seems no Defender tasks have run since June 30th, yet the process continues to hog the CPU
    • I re-ran SFC /scannow. SFC could not find any integrity violations
    • I tried disabling behaviour monitoring. The setting did not persist across a reboot, and turning it off did not make a difference while my system was still running.


      This was the output for Powershell:

    PS C:\Windows\system32> Set-MpPreference -DisableBehaviorMonitoring $True

    PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-MpPreference | findstr "Behavior"

    DisableBehaviorMonitoring : True

    PS C:\Windows\system32>

    • Scanning for viruses and leftover antivirus software. This was interesting (yet unfruitful):

      Neither Kaspersky nor Emisoft could find any threats. MalwareBytes did find 5 executables in my temp folder, although Virustotal.com reported no danger for the files. This could mean it's a false positive, but I removed all traces of them anyway.

      It also found two installers (PUPs) for a Spigot toolbar, I removed those as well. They probably came with some free software package, I try to prevent installing toolbars.
    • In installed AVG Anti Virus (the free version). When I rebooted after the installation, Defender was still running and taking up 25-30% of my CPU. I disabled Defender using the Group Policy editor and the service finally stopped.

    AVG works for me, but like most free anti virus programs it's full of ads and "free offers" and fishy SSL/TLS interception ("web protection").

    I'd like to keep using Windows Defender because it's neatly integrated into Windows 10, doesn't take a lot of resources and doesn't show annoying ads.

    I hope anyone can suggest another way to fix this weird Windows Defender problem.

  4. Deleting Emails- Defender slows up the process / CPU use jumps way up

    How to delete suggested email addresses in Windows 10 APP 2023

    There are tons of suggested email addresses that show up in a drop down menu when I am starting to type an email address into the "To:" field, when composing a new email, in Windows 10 app. They are not listed on my contacts. How can I delete these so that only the ones I use often show up? Redirecting.
    This thread is obsolete, and the steps DO NOT apply.

    When following step 1) you begin typing the email address to have the suggested emails pop up - and you cannot right click, select, open contact properties at all.

    When following step 2) This step is entirely ignorant of the fact that these "suggested" emails that pop up - are NOT in the contacts list.

    Can someone please explain how to remove this woefully annoying "Suggested" contact, with a current method, please?
