I also posted this in the VirusScan forum, I wasn't sure which one this would apply more to but now that I think about it, it seems more of a management issue. Sorry for duplicates. (This was removed from the virusscan forum but was not moved to the proper forum)
I am looking for a quick way via the command line or perhaps a registry modification that will allow me to temporarily disable the access protection on my desktop systems. Doing so via the ePo console will not work for me and I can not seem to find any useful information anywhere else. I hope someone can help me out. Thanks.
If you're suitably privileged on the workstations you should be able to use "Net Stop Servicename" to stop the McAfee Processes - don't know if this was the sort of thing you were looking for or if you need the change to remain across reboots.
Default access protection doesn't prevent McAfee Services being stopped you have to specifically enable this additional protection - default does prevent McAfee Processes being killed - this will not prevent you stopping the services using SC command....
...what's the problem with getting the policy change enforced via ePO then ?
