When I perform a net stop command or using services.msc stop the service 'McAfee McShield' the service basically restarts automatically.
The registry key is set to value of 0
The check marks on the 'Enable Access Protection' and 'Prevent McAfee services from being stopped' are off.
In my case I am looking to stop the services during backup operation. I use Computer Associates Brightstor. When the AV is running I loose significaint throughput.
I realize that their is an accepted soluiton, however, I do not believe that the problem was resolved with the solution accepted based on my results.
