[CLOSED] Does Panda Free in Windows XP have self protection?

Post by davexnet » Thu, 23 Feb 2017, 19:26

I attempted to set up and boot to diagnostic mode in Windows XP via MSCONFIG.
This mode disables all services and startup items except those need to boot the PC.

But I get this message, "An access denied error was returned while attempting to change a service"

I suspect this is the A/V protecting it's services.

Can this action be temporarily disabled so I can get to the diagnostic mode properly ?

You will need to reboot into safe mode to be able to temporarily disable our services
