What is triggering the antimalware service executable to start? I want to create an exclusion but I don't know which file(s) is the culprit.

Recommended Posts

The antimalware service executable is hogging up system resources on my work computer such that I can't get my work done. I.T. refuses to disable Windows Defender and install something better, so I'm stuck trying to figure out how to prevent these scans from triggering. Is there a log file somewhere that shows which suspected file(s) caused the full scan to take place?
