    Windows Defender is using too much CPU


    Antimalware Service Executable process is using way too much CPU (55-60%) and my total CPU usage never falls under 90% unless I stop it manually and everything's back to normal again.

    I really don't wanna keep disabling it, but I have no choice currently.

    Anything I can do about this?
