Recently, we have repaired a few PCs that have been slow, and they all have had the same thing that slows them down. What's that? Antimalware Service Executable, AKA Windows Defender. When Microsoft introducing Windows 10, they wanted security to be their number one priority, hence the creation of Windows Defender. You probably get a notification saying your PC was scanned and is safe. That is coming from Defender. But this level of automated security comes at a cost: High CPU Usage. Defender is always running, and so it uses a lot of power from your CPU. If you go to Task Manager, you can see that AntimalwareServiceExcutable uses a lot of power, and can also make your CPU bottleneck and run at 99 or 100% load even when using basic software.
Tired of your slow PC? Here's the simple solution: Disable Windows Defender. Before you comment saying that is unsafe, realize that disabling it will only disable it from doing most scans, and can scan if necessary. Below are the simple steps to disable Defender and boost your PC Speed.
Step 1: Open the Windows Menu and search for "Virus & Threat Protection".
Make sure when you type in "Virus & threat protection" that you include the & sign because searching for "Virus and Threat Protection" will fail.
Step 2: Click on "Virus & Threat Protection" to open Windows Defender.
Step 3: Click on "Virus & Threat Protection Settings"
Step 4: Disable Real-Time and Cloud-Delivered Protection.
That's it! Your PC should run faster! If your PC is still slow, please contact us!
