But nobody mentioned any torrent program (or anything else for the matter).
Ane even if that were the case, adding an exception is a better choice if it's concluded that it's a false positive.

This driver is also responsible for preventing you from killing its user-mode processes as you want.

What I don't really get is the reason for doing all this.
Of course, I had already disabled the real-time protection of MSE but I can not avoid that MSE is started with the start of Windows.

So, how do I do this?

Thanks

Disabling the latest version of Microsoft Security Essentials

Hi

From the Command Prompt of Windows 7 SP1, is there a way to disable the real-time protection of Microsoft Security Essentials?

Thanks

Please re-read, and stop asking the same question. I have bolded the most important point for you.

There is no reason for any of this to be done anyhow.
