This is an essential part of ESET Smart Security that you must NOT disable! Disabeling this service at startup will render your computer useless in terms of security. In other words: you will be a sitting duck for hackers, trojans, virusses a.s.o. The process itself can not be terminated while running. It is selfprotacted!
