    SmartScreen and Antimalware Service running Very High Power Usage


    I just set up a new Workstation use the HP Win10 software to do initial install (local account) They signed in to Insider and upgrade to 2036.1005. While I do NOT observe and notice and slow down (Workstatoin has Optane drive, lots of Memory) the task manager is constanly have the Windows Defender SmartScreen and Antimalware Service at the top of the list with VERY HIGH Power usage.

    I did a little online searching for solutions and most do not align with the Defender version on here. The only thing that fixes it is to complete turn off RealTime protection.

    Open to trying whatever you feel might help.

    Again....if I do NOT look at the task manager, I woudl never know I have something going on.

    PC has been setup and running now for three days.

    Antimalware Service Executable very high disk usage

    For me, the Antimalware Service Executable still eats up my disk usage, but since the above suggestion made it so that it only happens while the machine is idle, that is okay for me. I haven't noticed any annoyance from it since.

    (Of course, if I had programs running while not on the machine that also needed a lot of disk operations, the solution would not have worked for me, since then Antimalware Service Executable would interfere with those programs.)

    If you are still experiencing problems, perhaps try disabling Antimalware Service Executable and the other service you mentioned (that I don't know) completely? Of course, that is assuming you can live with not having them.

    (I don't think there is a way to change how much disk operations the program needs, so when it runs, it'll always have high disk usage if your disk is quite slow)
