In the past I already noticed that the antivirus-software of windows-defender slows down the loading speed of files in MP3Tag dramatically:
At this time my third-party antivirus-software (Avast) had been gotten accidently deactivated and windows-defender activated.
This time I wanted to give windows-defender a second chance, deinstalled Avast and activated the defender.
The same happened as before: Mp3Tag became very slow in loading files in spite of the activated library-function.
I tested some options in defender:
- Exception for MP3Tag
- Exception for the library-folder
- Exception fpr MP3-files (Extension)
- Deactivating real time protection completety
Only the radical deactivating of the real time protection changed the behaviour and the loading-speed was as fast as before.
I am curious if someone has a solution for the problem, that allows to use the defender.
Deactivating real time protection can't be such a solution.
I don't think that this is a singular problem with my system because I don't seem to be alone:
And this defender-problem could also be an explanation for some posts here about slow loading in spite of an active library.
