    I am using SmartScreen, but not the other Defender features. It is constantly using about 30% of my CPU, even when nothing is downloading. Can anything be done about this?

    :)

  2. SmartScreen not so smart.

    Hi,

    I would like to inform that Windows SmartScreen helps keep your PC safe by checking downloaded files and web content within apps to help protect you from malicious software and potentially unsafe web content. Before an unknown or potentially
    unsafe downloaded file is opened, Windows will display a warning. If SmartScreen detects potentially unsafe web content in an app, Windows will display a warning in place of the content. To disable SmartScreen, follow the steps below:

    • Type SmartScreen settings in the Search box and press Enter.
    • Click on Change Windows SmartScreen Settings in the left navigation pane.
    • Select the option, Don't do anything (turn off Windows SmartScreen) and click on OK.

    If you would like to develop a program, then suggest you to post your query in MSDN forums in the link provided below:

    Msdn forums - Visual Studio General Questions



    Hope the information provided is helpful. Feel free to write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we'll be glad to assist you.

    Hello sammiG8,

    To better assist you with your concern, kindly provide the following information:

    • Confirm which build is currently installed on your device. To check, follow the steps below:
    1. Press Windows key + R, then type in winver.
    2. Click OK.
    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Were there any recent changes made prior to this issue?

    Meanwhile, since your internet connection is working fine, try to turn off the SmartScreen feature:

    1. Click on Start, search for Security and Maintenance and click on it.

    2. In the Security and Maintenance window, click on
    Change Windows SmartScreen settings
    .

    3. Select Don't do anything (turn off Windows SmartScreen) and click
    OK to save changes.

    4. You may receive a pop-up message telling how unsafe your PC is, to turn off that notification. Under
    Security, click on Turn off messages about Windows SmartScreen.

    In addition, I'd recommend that you run the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool to make sure that all possible malicious software is removed from your computer. Refer to the steps in this
    article

    Looking forward to your response.

    Regards.
