    Ok, I run benchmarks for competition but I also use my rig for normal stuff. I know from experience removing ESS and EAV that these programs cost you from 300-500 points if left installed while benchmarking. Is there a way to completely stop all processes without actually removing the program? I am not just real worried about a Virus during this time mainly because all access to the machine is shutdown as well either by being unplugged or disabled in the Device Manager.

    In Safe Mode , goto Control Panel > Administrative tools > Services . Find the ESET service , which is generally set to Automatic . Right click it , choose Properties and change the service to Disabled .

    Reboot . When the computer restarts , you'll notice the interface/splashscreen (egui.exe) hang . You can open the Task Manager and kill egui.exe

    By doing this , the kernel will not load and program will not work . Note , that after your work , you should turn back the ESET service back to Automatic (and re-start the service) so that protection is activated

    For the above to work with v4, you'll first need to disable Self-defense and restart the computer.

    FYI

    After these recommendations were made I thought of another way to avoid booting knowing that errors would pop up once I logged in. I used MSCONFIG to disable the ESET startup entries after I disabled both of the Services. That worked great!

    Thanks again,
