HP Sure Run can be enabled locally in HP Client Security Manager. A customized PIN identifies you as the user of the PC and enables HP Sure Run to begin protecting your system.

Yes. You can enable or disable protection for a set list of processes in HP Client Security Manager (or via HP Manageability Integration Kit, if you are in a managed IT environment).

HP Sure Run protects the Windows Security Center, which is compatible with many antivirus solutions. If you choose to install third-party antivirus software, HP Sure Run can ensure that it remains enabled as long as it is integrated with Windows Security Center.

When HP Sure Run detects a threat, it will notify the user. Before attempting to restart the process, HP Sure Run will verify that any files or registry keys associated with it are as expected. This protects against malware that might try to replace a key process. Once it has confirmed its authenticity, HP Sure Run will restart the process. It will continue even against repeated attempts to turn off the process.

You will be notified in the Windows Action Center. The action will also be logged in the Windows® Event Log and can be viewed in the HP Client Security Manager Notification Panel
