I am using GFI Max Monitoring, and I keep receiving errors that Windows 8 (and 8.1) machines are automatically stopping the Managed Antivirus (MAV) service; resulting in lost communication for the MAV. I have read that Windows 8/8.1 automatically stops services that are not in use after a period of time (most recently the GP Client service).
I would like to know if anyone knows of a way to disable this action. The MAV service is necessary to maintain communications with the monitoring service so that the computer is protected.
This only occurs on Windows 8/8.1 workstations.
Reference on the GP Client service as it pertains to Windows 8/8.1:
Thank you in advance.
