You are a freakin' God! I started working in this office three weeks ago and inherited a computer teaming with little beasties. I want to run Combo Fix but can't do it with Office Scan enabled!

I've been searching on and off all day for a way to get around the freakin' password and disable the damned thing! Worked like a charm!

Be sure to run cmd as Admin if possible should help if you have issues

it just says "the requested pause or stop is not valid for this service"

the requested pause or stop is not valid for this service..


that appeared :( seens like i'm the only one who haven't got it to work :((((((

"Access Denied", anyone know how to get around this?

Anonymous said...

Access denied mean you do not have sufficient rights to run the command..make sure you are running as administrator or make sure you elevate your rights to admin..

if the command is not valid for this service mean your service state is either is stopping or starting...and not stop or start..basically service has 4 state...start , stop, starting and stopping..

to fix it i suggest reinstall your officescan client if you have trouble starting or stopping it properly,.

I think I love u right now!

That doesn't work anymore as of the latest version.

Can't stop it via cmd, can't stop it via Services.

Any other brilliant ideas?

Can you at least provide the error message in the event viewer?

I have win7 professional OS at my office and so I can't open cmd as administrator coz I don't have the admin username and password. And when I try to run "net stop tmlisten" command on cmd, the message comes up saying "The requested pause, continue, or stop is not valid for this service. More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2191."
I can't even copy a darn movie from the pc to my pen drive. PLEASE HELP!!

I tried what U said but it says that the service is already running, and when I try to run a crack Trend Micro deletes the file. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!! ANYONE

Sorry but even running cmd as admin on Win7 says this: The requested pause, continue, or stop is not valid for this service.

kill the task instead of the service. run this from an elevated command prompt and the Officescan will stop.
taskkill /F /IM TmListen.exe
taskkill /F /IM PccNTMon.exe
taskkill /F /IM OfcPfwSvc.exe
taskkill /F /IM NTRtScan.exe

Thanks, and how do you resume ?

Thanks, that was just what I needed!

If you have Admin rights, and are still getting errors:

Open Start | Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services and locate your OfficeScan NT software. In properties, disable at startup, then reboot.

Or try from the command line:
sc config tmlisten start=disabled
sc config tmproxy start=disabled
sc config ntrtscan start=disabled
shutdown -r

Annoyed downloader said...

I need help!
stopping doesn't work, so I tried disabling it and restarting. Trend micro automatically resets it's service values to be automatic again every time I restart. Then I tried killing the task, but even with cmd running as administrator, the access is still denied! PLEASE HELP!!!

Lucifer said...

Which trendmicro product you are using? OfficeScan which version?

Godfrey Alindi said...

Tried Doing that with the Officescan Version version ling on 10.6. Disabling the services does not work as Trend micro automatically resets it's service values to be automatic again every time I restart. I'm simply trying to copy a 134kb file in a folder but it deems the file a Trojan Virus

Godfrey Alindi said...

Got the same issue as annoyed downloader. Using version 10.6

I guess no one found an answer to the last problem that others and myself were running into.
