  1. Very high memory use with Antimalware Service Executable


    Antimalware Service Executable takes up a very large amount of my computer's memory, over 0.7-0.8 GB. This happened after I ran a full scan; however, I am concerned because the amount continually increases whenever I turn on the computer. I also have a phone that had ~0.7 GB 'dissappear' for no apparent reason, which is the paranoid side of this. Is there a good reason for the memory usage, and will it eventually disappear?

    :)
