MsMpEng.exe runs eating up computer memory RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • How can I fix problem when at about 10-20% speed when this thing starts, and it will not stop until I shut the computer down with a reboot.  Thanks, 

    Oops! Looks like I will have to reboot! As soon as I hit "Send", my computer was locked up with MsMpEng.exe taking all my computer memory!

    Ok, I am back.
