    Hello,

    I want to temporarily disable or shutdown HMP.A, not the protection, whole program.
    Is it possible?
    Right-click on the tray icon only shows option to hide, no exit.

    Regards.

    I think he does not have that option, If I'm not mistaken.

    There is no option to temporarily disable protections.

    Try manually stopping HMP.A services.

    Go to Services / right click on the HMP.A service, (Not the scheduler if your also running HMP) stop it, then in properties disable it till your done, doing what ever it is you need to do then restart it. It works I do it and it has worked every time for years. PeAcE
    PS: there's only one service you need to stop for HMP.A, the (Scheduler is for HMP only so if your not running HMP you will never see the (Scheduler) process belonging to HMP.
