    I've windows XP on a Dell. Recently I discovered a very annoying problem. my computer slows down when I try to open folders or scroll for files. I checked the Task manager and found that MsMpEng.exe is using as much as 75% CPU while I try to open folders. I understand that MSMpEng is an anti-malware program. Is there a way to fix this problem? Can this program be disable? If so how?

    Remove Windows Defender from your computer and it should solve your problem. The program is useless anyway.

    Thank you for your response. I went to Add/Remove programs in my control panel. I did not find Windows Defender. How do I locate it so I can remove it?

    In that case, it might be coming from Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Also, make sure you have the very latest version of Microsoft Security Essentials. The issue with high CPU usage is well known and may have been addressed in the latest versions.

    What's the model name and model number of that Dell?

    If you don't know for sure, advise what the 7-character "service tag" number on the sticker is.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Right-click MY COMPUTER, then click Properties.

    Advise what's listed in the Computer: section in the "General" tab - exactly as you see it there.

    First of all, make sure you have the very latest version of Microsoft Security Essentials. The issue with high CPU usage is well known and may have been addressed in the latest versions.


    Also, we will need to address this massive amount of running processes and Startup programs. All that can consume a large amount of memory and CPU.

    You might be confusing "software updates" with "virus and spyware definition updates".

    Open Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Click on the drop down arrow next to Help.

    What version of MSE do you see when clicking "About Security Essentials"?

    Click Start > Run > type msconfig

    Press Enter.

    Select the Startup tab.

    In there, you'll see all the applications loading automatically when you boot your computer.

    They don't all need to do so. They can be accessed only when you need them, manually.


    * The following entries should stay checked:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PinnacleDriverCheck] C:\WINDOWS\system32\\PSDrvCheck.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSKDetectorExe] "C:\Program Files\McAfee\SpamKiller\MSKDetct.exe" /uninstall

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Google Desktop Search] "C:\Program Files\Google\Google Desktop Search\GoogleDesktop.exe" /startup

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [itype] "C:\Program Files\Microsoft IntelliType Pro\itype.exe"

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IntelliPoint] "C:\Program Files\Microsoft IntelliPoint\ipoint.exe"

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AS00_WN311B] C:\Program Files\NETGEAR\WN311B\Utility\WN311B.exe -hide

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSC] "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe" -hide -runkey

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Acronis Scheduler2 Service] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\Schedule2\schedhlp.exe"


    * The others can be unchecked.


    Restart the computer.


    After restarting, when the small "System Configuration Utility" window appears, ignore the message. Put a check mark in that window, then click OK.

    O.K. I followed your instructions and unchecked many items at the Startup tab. I already see an improvement when I try to open folders. Do you think I should also stop the MsMpEng.exe process thru the Task Manager? Would that affect the security?
