    By using ATP(Advanced Process Termination),ekrn.exe was terminated successfully without too much efforts(even in user-mode).

    :doubt:

    screenshot is followed.

    This suggests the self-defense must be further improved.

    Hello, with specialized tool you can kill almost everything. You don't know, what was the main point of developer's target. :)

    anything that installs a kernal driver can kill it.
    the trick is to not let anything untrusted install a kernal driver.

    quite agreed.
    and when ekrn/egui panicked like this

    and u cant terminate it with anything, but to reboot.
    that's not going to make the users happy for this extra protection.
