    Patch 9: How to temporarily disable Enhanced Self Protection?

    crashman

      With VirusScan 8.8 Patch 9 (Build 1804) McAfee added an enhanced self protection mechanism. According to KB88263, non McAfee or Microsoft processes are treated as untrusted and will be blocked. That means, own processes cannot disable Access Protection - even if excluded from corresponding access protection rules.

       

      But there should be a way to disable Enhanced Self Protection. BK88263 says: "Uncheck the option Enhanced-Self-Protection to restore pre-Patch 9 behaviour". Where can I find this option?

       

       

      Thx
