mc-fw-host.exe taking my whole memory why?

so in past 10 days i noticed the mc-fw-host.exe taking too much memory resources and surprisely same 10 days ago i received a Popup notification about my Subscription going to end  in oct. after getting that notification my system going very slow and even i cant play GTA 5 it's lagging too much before in same system i completed the GTA 5 Story Mode and achieve 120 lvl RP 1b money without lag but in past 10 days the game was lagging too much because of this process when i check my task manager it taking more than GTA 5 Memory resources how it is possible a antivirus service taking more resource than a game. so this happen because of my subscription going to end it is true or not i don't know but you know seriously i'm not gonna purchase this subscription again. i attached the screen shot of task manager so you can check how much memory resources this service take and at the end sorry for my bad english. Thank you for reading this
