    Thank you for your question and reaching out.

    I understand that you are having problems regarding the Antimalware Service Executable and I am very sorry for this discomfort. I will try to help you as best I can.

    In this case, you will not be able to remove the anti-malware service executable as it is a feature that is intrinsic to the Windows kernel, but you can disable it. However, performing the steps below, all Windows Defender components will be disabled and the computer will be unprotected.

    If you really want to disable it, I suggest you get another antivirus. If you install another antivirus, Windows Defender will be disabled by default.

    Completely disable the feature.

    To carry out the procedure, you must perform the following steps:

    open regedit

    Go to the following path: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Security\HealthService

    Change the Start Type to 3

    Go to Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc), Startup tab, locate the Windows Defender icon, right-click and disable.

    Restart the computer.

    NOTE: All Windows Defender components and others (such as Windows Defender Security Center) will be completely disabled.
