I want to disable Anti malware service on windows 11

Hello,

It is not recommended to disable Antimalware Service, if you're using Microsoft Defender as primary anti-virus. If you wish to use third-party AV, Defender should disable itself, and hence the Antimalware Service.

Hope this helps!
Can I ask you to explain why you want to disable the security feature?
Because of high memory usage in the background, I only have 4 GB RAM on my pc. so, I cant run multiple apps. I have tried to run multiple apps but after few seconds the apps get closed.
So, that means if I run any another free AV then the Antimalware service will disable itself automatically.

It really is a bad idea to replace Microsoft Defender with a free antivirus program!
Defender works fine and only takes up resources when scanning, if applications close it is usually an unfinished Windows update that causes this - it has nothing to do with Defender.
