Could not stop mutiple Kaspersky processes in Server 2008R2

Dear Team, our server 2008R2 has many AVP.exe processes (Kaspersky Endpoint Security) that we could not stop. It showed errors when we tried to end task:

avp1.PNG
We also tried some commands on CMD/PowerShell but it did not help. Administrator has FuLL-control right but it keep showing "Access is denied"
taskkill /PID "number" /F
Get-Process -Name "avp" | Stop-Process -Force


Could you please suggest? Many thanks!

I would recommend restarting the server.

You could also try downloading and using Process Hacker to terminate processes.

Kaspersky is a protected service.  Because it is an anti-virus agent.  It is designed to not be able to be shut down.  

If you want to stop it, I'd uninstall it.  

Protected services have everything possible done to prevent them from being able to be shut down.

Since you are using the endpoint service I'd recommend using a special folder group to manage your servers.  Then if you want to edit settings on them rather then mess with the services and potentially damage the engine, I'd modify the configuration on the security center.

ScriotAddict basically answered it. Imagine if AV software was allowed to be shut down easily. Any malware would just target it right off the bat (and quite a bit of malware in the past did do exactly that)

No, my question is why did I have so many Kaspersky processes like that?

I doubt anyone can answer that but Kaspersky.
