  1. Windows Defender interfering with WinRAR


    So I'm trying to store 60GB worth of data into a .rar file. I'm looking at task manager right now, and I see both WinRAR and "Antimalware Service Executable" (of Windows Defender) both having around the same disk usage, with total disk usage for that disk at 100%. Is Windows Defender scanning my files as they're being read by WinRAR or something? This is a Minecraft world, I don't really see a reason to be scanning it for virus.

    Is there a way to politely tell Windows Defender to let me compress files without hogging half my transfer rate, or perhaps tell it that .mca files are safe and not to be scanned or something? Thanks for reading!

    .rar file to winRAR

    Hi G41axyX

    Do you have WinRAR installed on your PC?

    If so: right click a RAR, choose 'Open With' - Choose Another App

    Important - Check the box marked 'Always use this app to open rar . . .'

    If WinRAR is not in the list, scroll to the bottom and click 'More Apps'

    Again if WinRAR is not in the list, at the bottom, click 'Look for another app on this PC', then navigate to find the WinRAR executable . . .
