So I have tried everything I have read but this issue is not going away. So I can't seem to get this program to stop using all my cpu.
I have tried the following I have read in the following order:
1. Told Windows Defender to stop scanning itself.
2. Installed a different Anti-virus so it turns off Windows Defender.
3. Add in that registry key to disable Windows Defender.
Windows Defender is not running for sure as I can't open it anymore due to the registry key but MsMpEng is still running and using all my cpu. I also did do a scan with both Windows Defender and my new antivirus program as well as Malwarebytes. No threats found. Ran CCleaner to see if that could find anything. Nothing.
So I give up. I've tried everything and nothing seems to work. I've also tried to change the affinity of the program but "access is denied".
So anything else I missed? I'm able to get this fixed so I can continue using Windows Defenders as I'm use to that, that would be great, if not and I have to use another anti virus program that is fine too, but then how do I completely get rid of MsMpEng.exe?
