Re: Manually Disable ENS process

First of all you´ll want to disable Access-Protection so you are able to kill the tasks.

Afterwards just fetch the PID of the process you want to end and run taskkill.exe with the PID from you commandline.

You can also do that remotely with the use of psexec.exe. All tools from the Sysintenals Suite from Microsoft.

Hello,

why don`t you use the easy to go Taskmanager to get a first idea of what is causing the high CPU load, instead of killing the security in first instance? With Windows Server 2008 and above you can furthermore look deeper into the processes and what they are dooing but the Taskmanager will do fine for the first lookup-.

Regards

If you really have to policy disabled, then it can only be due to a lack of rights. Maybe you can change the user with which you are running your taskkill?
