I have a brand new Dell Inspiron with Windows 10. When Defender is running my computer is extremely slow. It's so slow I have to wait literally seconds for the cursor to catch up with where I want it to be. I tried the System Maintenance "fix" and the program told me no fixes were required.
This is extremely frustrating. I turned Defender off but of course it turns itself back on. I tried to uninstall Defender but there's no option for that.
I want a fix for this ridiculous problem. I spent a lot of money for this computer. My family was pushing me to buy a Mac but I stayed loyal to Windows. Maybe that was a mistake.
I expect a fix for this. Give me a way to either turn Defender off permanently or uninstall it.
