    Unlike ekrn.exe, egui.exe is not a process responsible for protecting you against threats.

    Once again - terminating egui.exe does NOT affect your realtime protection in any way.

    I think egui.exe is protected as of v. 4.2

    Running 4.2.40.0. Was able to kill egui.exe from Task Manager with no problems. Restarted egui.exe from the Start Menu. Doesn't look like it's protected to me...

    Maybe you are working on non-administrative account? System automatically protects processes launched from NT Authority\SYSTEM account from terminating by standard user.

    Do you actually have self-defense enabled?
