REALTEK HD AUDIO UNIVERSAL SERVICE continuously attempts to both hook and terminate mcafee processes
For some reason, the realtek audio driver keeps attempting to both hook and terminate mcafee processes on a consistent basis. I've placed some details below to get a better understanding of the issue. This happens over 2,000 times a day per system. Has anyone run into an issue like this? I really don't want to allow an audio driver to perform these actions (terminate or hook into mcafee processes)

Third party software can do driver injection into McAfee software and the self-protection functionality would block it, but is this causing an actual issue in either software? If not, then continue to block it within the McAfee software. The third party vendor (Realtek in this example) would need to explain why audio drivers (RTKAUDUSERVICE64.EXE; or its related software) are trying to hook McAfee software drivers. Modifications to this to exclude the McAfee drivers would need to be implemented by the vendor (if they choose to do so).
