So,a couple of days back, I installed Windows 8 Pro on a friend' laptop.
Today, he called me and said that he needs to get rid of the Windows Defender.
When inquired about it, I was told that it is randomly spiking up the processor to maximum, even on the newly installed Windows with only a few number of known softwares. I spent some time with it and it was the MsMpEng.exe
I also has had some bad experiences with that thing. Never really understood it completely
So, is there a way to get rid of it? What should be done.
And suggest a good, trusted alternative.
