    Win10 Mar9/2021 update caused Animalware Svc Exec to run continuously


    Ever since the March 9, Windows Windows Update, the Antimalware Service Executable has been running continuously (15+ hours of full scan without terminating). I'm running Windows 10 Home version 20H2. Task Manager doesn't allow me to kill the process, which is significantly slowing down my PC. I've already tried running a Microsoft Defender Offline scan, which terminated normally after 15 minutes and restarted with no scan. But the next morning, the scan again ran interminably. Any ideas?

    I'd try another Antivirus scan......... If you can, download and run Eset "one time (free)": Free Virus Scan | Online Virus Scan from ESET | ESET
