How to cancel a2service.exe

Recommended Posts


I recently installed version 5.0 Emsisoft Anti-Malware on Windows XP with free licence. I want to start it manually only.

So I want to get rid of process a2service.exe and its 14 threads.

How can I do that, please?

Thank you

Yves B.

Hi Yves B., welcome to the forum

The short answer:

1) In this new version (5) you cannot disable the service even for Free edition and if you are under account with Admin privileges as it was possible previously;

2) You can use Emsisoft Emergency Kit for on-demand scan only – it doesn't use the service.


But if you are willing to learn more, then please use Search feature of the forum and you will find some answers

For example, read this thread and the subsequent link (to the “reply #4”) inside

Hope that will answer you question

At the same time please be more specific what do you mean by “ its 14 threads”? only one instance of the service is running

My regards

P.S. when posting please provide more detailed information about your System Environment as in Forum Posting Rules #2)
