Antimalware Executable (Windows 10)

This is a process which can run wild with resultant performance problems.

If you are running a decent security product then you don’t need this.

This may be disabled via the Registry.

Create or amend the following entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Policies/Microsoft/Windows Defender/DisableAntiSpyware = 1

This is a DWORD type value.

Reboot and the process should be gone from your machine (hurrah!)
