I just logged on today and found a process running in task manager called MpCmdRun.exe, I researched online and found it to be a part of windows defender, which is included on the windows 8.1 laptop on which this is occuring, BUT this laptop doesn't use windows defender as it's antivirus, I uses avast on it, so shouldn't windows defender be disabled and not running anything in the background? What is gong on here, is it normal for this utitlity to run when a user has another antivirus installed?
The fle is found in C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\
It is 378KB in size (380KB on disk), it was "created" 12th auagust 2015 and modified 7th july 2015, it has two digital signatures, a sha1 and a sha256 from microsoft.
