Trying to do some tests and I need to disable McAfee Real-time Scanner/mcshield.exe for a few minutes, but I am unable to do so via the SC command, or through services.msc. I can run both as an administrator, but still says access denied.
Where in the registry is the key locking me out from being able to disable this for a few minutes?
Please give answer, not questions. I don't wish to go to another product, but I will if I get played with.
Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center Click Advanced Menu (bottom left) Click Configure (left) Click Computer & Files (top left) Disable VirusScan in the right-hand module and tell it for how long.
Firewall can be disabled similarly just substitute Internet & Network for Computer & Files above.
Wrong, this doesn't disable the service. I need it disabled as in "sc config mcshield start= disable" kind of disabled. Doing that doesn't stop any services, or processes, just stops the processes/services from doing anything, yet keeping them running.
Again, real answer please, not the standard "computer stupid" user crap.
