MsMpEng.exe taking up too much memory
MsMpEng.exe(windows defender) has taken up lots of my computer's ram and cpu usage and is making my computer really slow
But when I try to open windows defender it says that windows defender has been disabled even though MsMpEng is running. Trying to turn on windows defender in order to disable it does not seem to work as when I click on the button to turn windows defender on it just freezes and stops responding
is there any way to externally disable windows defender?

See if this will work for you
Click on the start button click on All Programs locate Microsoft Security Essentials, click on the "Settings" tab. Select "Excluded files and locations"
Browse to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Security Client\MsMpEng.exe", click on Ok and press Add button to add the file to your list of excluded files and locations. Press Save changes button.
In Windows 7 x64 . You will have two Program Files folders . Program Files is where 64-bit applications install to and Program Files (x86) yes you guessed it 32-but applications install to .
