Antimalware Service Executable help?

So i currently dont have an anti virus installed for the time and i tried shutting down my pc but it wont shut off when i just simply go and click the shut down option on the computer. This has happened before with other anti viruses such as kaspersky so i think its because the windows defender anti virus is running. The way for it to fix is to do a shutdown using the power button on my case. Why does this happen and is there a way to stop this from happening?

I've been getting this too, except it eats up battery and ramps up disk usage (and noise)

"Antimalware Service Executable" is part of Windows Defender and I believe you will normally see it running when using any antivirus. By any chance do you have a screenshot?
