Windows Defender SmartScreen using ~30% of CPU all the time
I am running windows 10 and my computer has a SSD and Windows Defender SmartScreen will not stop running. I have tried restarting, making an excluded folder for windows defender, doing the full scan in hopes that it would be better after a full scan, and none of that has worked. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Windows Defender running with Norton 360 turned on
Windows Defender turned OFF by Norton 360 still runs and disallows setup.exe to run with no option to run setups. Screen: Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk. The only choice is: Don't run. This results even after Norton 360 turned off Windows Defender. Can't turn off Windows Defender because Norton has already turned it off.

Both links open a tab in Edge with a big red screen saying Danger, don't go there. Seems like Microsoft spammed themselves. This site has been reported as unsafe Hosted by click.email.microsoftrewards.com Microsoft recommends you don't continue to this site. It has been reported to Microsoft for containing phishing threats which may try to steal personal or financial information. Go back More information Microsoft Defender SmartScreen
