Tim, I hate to start a new thread but my latest post was buried and I didn'tTim Meddick said:Jeff,
The "Microsoft Antimalware Service" is not found in Task Manager
under the name "msseces.exe " (that's the process name for the
user-interface program) - the actual service-name of the running process
is called "MsMpEng.exe".
But I trust that by telling you this, you won't follow the useless advice
to simply stop the process from Task Manager but follow the procedure I
outlined in my first post to this thread.
That is; to use "Start" > "Run" > "services.msc" to stop the Microsoft
Antimalware Service" [MsMpSvc] by clicking on it and pressing the "Stop"
service button. Then disable it (Startup-Type > choose "disabled" from
the drop-down list).
Finally delete the service (un-register) with the "sc" command from a
Command Prompt window :
sc delete MsMpSvc
(if you get "sc is not a recognized...." or "could not find..." you can
download the "sc" command [sc.exe] from the link below)
(open the ZIP-file (by clicking on it in Explorer, then copy the file
"sc.exe" to a folder in your "path", such as your [c:\windows] )
Cheers, Tim Meddick, Peckham, London.

Windows Task Manager...to stop MSE just end process for
Msseces.exe...you do need help.
Yes, I do need help. ==Msseces.exe isn't in the task manager.
think you'd see it.
What do you mean by a command prompt window.
I'm a little hesitant to do all this, I'm afraid I'll screw something up
again! Is there much chance of that?
