Windows 10  1903. Was looking through Task Manager/Details and noticed that a2start.exe is disabled. Everything seems to be running ok and rebooted, same.

Is this normal ?

a2start.exe is the main user interface for Emsisoft Anti-Malware. It's pre-loaded by a2guard.exe during login to improve performance, which is why it's always running.

If you can open the Emsisoft Anti-Malware window and interact with it without issues, then everything should be fine.

BTW: Are you seeing "Disabled" in the "UAC virtualization" column of the Task Manager's details tab? If so, then this doesn't mean the process is disabled, and it's normal for a2start.exe and a2guard.exe to say "Disabled" in that column.
