  1. Why Windows Defender processes suddenly became so "heavy"?


    For years I never noticed any sort of slowdown, but recently (I'd say in the last 1-2 months) when Real Time Protection is running, computer gets terrible performances. For example, every time I plug a trusted usb device like an external soundcard or a MIDI keyboard, Defender starts scanning bringing the CPU usage at 100% making the computer inoperable for several minutes straight. Why does Defender affect performances like this just now? What is changed?

    Why Windows Defender processes suddenly became so "heavy"?

    Unable to Remove Exclusions from Windows Defender

    Thank you for posting back. If you trust a file, file type, folder, or a process that Windows Defender Antivirus has detected as malicious, you can stop Windows Defender Antivirus from alerting you or blocking the program by adding the file to
    the exclusion list. It seems that it was added automatically. We suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings and select Update & security.
    • Click Windows Defender.
    • Look for Exclusions and select Add an exclusion.
    • Navigate to the file, folder, or process, and select Exclude this file.

    If the steps provided did not work, we recommend that you boot your device to
    Safe Mode
    and redo the process.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
