Isn't it weird that A is a care-giver AND a caretaker!?
A: Care-giver (gives care)
B: Caretaker (says "thanks you" and takes the care given by A)
Also, why does one have a hyphen while the other doesn't?
None of this makes sense
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.
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.
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?

A couple of months back, found W10 to be painfully slow. I did not looked up if it is hardware or OS or some other software. I made the computer dual boot with Linux. Speaker volume is low on ubuntu but everything else is fine. Now I do not face any of these issues.
I still use W10 at work though and apart from BSODs it is OK.
sooooo, he is silly for reporting what he sees, and you're not.
well that's fair. Not.
and BTW: he did say "the whole system was lagging badly ... defender is using lots of CPU" - it's you that's pinning it on win10 (in fact later he names his antivirus app suggesting the problem may lie between it and win10, not just win10 on it's own).
different people have different experiences,
why take it so personally to the point of calling people "silly" (it's a gentle word but abuse is abuse) just because people have a different experience than you? that IS silly.
Windows Defender is hogging CPU because it's trying to resolve the "Windows is the virus" paradox.
