Command line way to disable (and then reenable) the Real-Time scanner?

Recommended Posts

This is related to my Office vs. 6.7.900 issue.

Is there a command-line way to disable the Real-Time scanner and then another command to re-enable it?


That would be a better (and faster) short-term solution we might be able to push out to our 8000+ system fleet to address the problem with 6.7.900

OK -- we figured out how to do this.   If anybody else is interested:

Two preinstall steps:

sudo killall esets_gui

sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.eset.esets_daemon.plist


Install the application (in our case either Office 2016 or 2019)


then two post-install steps:

sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.eset.esets_daemon.plist

open -a “/Applications/ESET Endpoint Antivirus.app”


Not the best solution -- but Office installs are taking *at a minimum* 4 times longer with 6.7.900, so we had to do something...
