So I've recently freshly installed Windows 10 on my PC. I've disabled all the windows defender settings but still there's this antimalware process which stays on all the time and uses about 250-350Mb of my memory. When I try to end it, it just says cannot end the process permission denied. I've tried searching it in the task list on powershell but there's no such process in the list there. I've also turned off the windows scan schedule. Please tell me how to end this windows antimalware process.

Why do you want to disable all the AV and malware protection?

What are the specs of this system, and what do you use it for?
One of the reasons is that it uses a significant amount of my memory.
And I do regular scans of my pc with malware bytes so security is not an issue. I don't download files from any spam site so there's that.
My specs- i5 7500, gtx 1060 6GB GPU, 8GB DDR4 Ram gigabyte h110 motherboard.
Memory usage is a concern because I am a fps gamer and I don't want any hindrance in my PC's performance.

Actually I also had issue with windows defender it was too aggressive and was slowing down my pc.

If You disable Real Time Protection, then it won't scan in background.

Or

Just download
Defender Control
it gives you simple way to turn on or off Windows Defender. Before downloading you read about it, and take a look at Screenshots.


I used it and had no problems, it didn't damaged any windows file.
I turn on Defender every few weeks to scan for any viruses, malware for safety.
