Twice this week I have encountered an issue with one of my customer's machines I manage in that something we're trying to install isn't working only to eventually figure out it is Acronis that was blocking it. It would be helpful if we had some type of alert that it's blocking the process(es). Today I was trying to install an antivirus product for another vendor and it kept failing. It appears it is the Windows Service named AcronisCyberProtectionService that is causing the interference but we cannot stop or disable this service.
Further, we do not use the Acronis antivirus product, nor do we have the Acronis "Active Protect" feature enabled in the Backup Plans.
The only way I have found to proceed with what I needed to do was to uninstall the Acronis Agent, install the needed software, then reinstall Acronis (for backups). We just need Acronis for backups, so how do we disable the other antivirus functions (even temporarily)?
