MsMpEng.exe runs constantly using excessive memory RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the simplest way to correct this problem? My computer runs at about 10-20% speed when this thing starts, and it will not stop until I shut the computer down with a reboot.

  • Looks like I will have to reboot! As soon as I hit "Send", my computer instantly slowed and I checked, sure enough!! MsMpEng.exe had kicked in and is eating up my memory at up to 99%!

    I will reboot and be back in a while.

  • As far as I can tell from a quick search, MsMpEng.exe is to do with Microsoft Windows Defender and nothing to do with Bing maps, so why post your question here?

    I think you'd be better off posting in a more relevant forum: http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/windowsliveonecare
