Identifies Windows Security Center entries.


WinSecCenter:<type(enum)>,<field(enum)>,<data(string)>[,advanced build parameters]



Detects and removes an antivirus application that has the specified GUID.


Anti virus entries are supported by WSC starting with XP, anti spyware entries starting with Vista.

  1. The first parameter defines the type of application to detect. The two types currently supported are
    • av (anti virus application)
    • as (anti sypware application)
  2. The second parameter specifies the field to look up, which only has only possible value, guid, as of now.
  3. The third parameter contains the data to detect, which since only GUIDs are supported right now, needs to be one such. This is a strict matching, no Algo-Prefix yet.

Scan Results

  • Only a status report, the plugin structure currently doesn't allow a custom fixing type, so the entry will be removed immediately during the scan.
