Windows 10 defender taking up resources

Recommended Posts

This is killing me.

The other day I noticed that big box was running terribly and I’ve been looking into to “out of ram” crashes I’ve been getting lately.  

I went into the task manager and discovered that windows defender was using 50% of my memory.  

I’ve worked for weeks google searching and trying suggestions to no end.  I’ve disabled services, gone into the registry to try to stop it and nothing works.  If you google “anti malware service executable high memory use” you will get thousands of hits so it isn’t just me.

Has anyone run into this problem?  How did you overcome it?  

I hate windows.
