Hello Win 7 Home premiuim,i5,1T,3,30GHz

I noticed Windows Defener takes up a lot of CPU usage yet the program is turned off by default. I think it is a remnant of a previous os and not useful in Win 7.

I also noticed I have to check "show for all users" for it to be displayed.

I know it is part of Windows but can it be removed without harmful results?
Thank you
