Last night I updated my main desktop from W10 1803 to 1903. The update finished a bit after midnight. When I got to the desktop afterwards problems were immediately apparent; the whole system was lagging badly.

I fiddled around a bit before going to bed without any idea what the problem was. I continued this morning, and found the root cause right before I had to stop and head to work. Windows Defender AV was running and hogging two cores. OMG | :OMG: WTF | :WTF:

As a few of you might remember, a bit over a year ago Defender blew up on my desktop and despite trouble shooting help from a few people here I was never able to get it to go back to using a tiny sliver of CPU time like it's supposed to. Eventually I cut my losses and bought an F-Secure license (free versions of commercial AV are too nagy, I'm willing to pay not to be bothered); and everything had been working well until the update.

I only had a minute or two of time at that point; but the AV Settings page is showing my AV as F-Secure and "Run occasional Defender scans as a second check" is off. The registry key that's also supposed to serve as an off switch was set but obviously not working.

Agenda for when I'm home is to try a reboot (just because it's an easy thing to try), and then go through a turn off/back on cycle with F-Secure to see if that prods Defender into turning itself off. If that doesn't work I'll probably resume ranting here while trying other things. Mad | :mad:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
