    Preventing the Microsoft Antimalware Service to start automatically

    Hi

    From the Command Prompt, what would be the proper procedure to prevent the Microsoft Antimalware Service (the latest version) to start automatically during startup of Windows 7 SP1?

    Thanks

    Bye

    I doubt if you can as AV programs are designed to give full protection and reinstate themselves even when unchecked in msconfig - but why do you want to stop it from auto starting as JoeP517 has asked ?

    You can go into the program's settings (right-click on the icon on the taskbar and open the program) and disable real-time protection, but like the others I'm not quite clear what you want to do and why.

    To try to disable MSE when Windows starts, I created this bat file:

    Code:
    @echo off
    taskkill /im msseces.exe /f /t
    taskkill /im MsMpEng.exe /f /t
    net stop MsMpSvc
    sc config "MsMpSvc" start= disabled
    Next, I created a scheduled task

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
    <Task version="1.3" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/windows/2004/02/mit/task">

    so that it goes running with the System's rights when the system starts up.

    When, however, I rebooted the system, the MSE service is still active. How come?

    Where did I do wrong?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Are you confusing Security Essentials with Defender? In W7, you can only disable Defender by installing a different AV which stops it automatically.

    Isn't this the same question as your last thread (about using command prompt on Windows 7 to stop MSE) which you were still updating yesterday?

    Preventing the Microsoft Antimalware Service to start automatically

    Could you answer the last question in that thread which was trying to help you?

    (Not sure why you've started a new thread; if there's no reason I'll delete or merge it.)
