feature request:  Windows Defender Antivirus -  add "scan running processes" scan for dead/multiple or dangerous processes or clean memory... most virus scanners only check files on drive, not running processes within memory..  and maybe add a rule to block a dangerous process..

Majority of Anti-Malware software including Windows Defender also scan processes . Scanning is not only about files, folder and applications but they scan process and other memory objects. So this feature already exist.
