Summary

Prevent the OfficeScan client/agent icon from loading in the Windows client desktop system tray through the OfficeScan server management console. This will restrict user access but still keep the client protected. OfficeScan services will remain running except for the pccntmon process.

 
The client will not send virus logs to the server when pccntmon is stopped.
