    On a friends Win XP PC he has Microsoft Security Essentials as the Anti Virus but obviously now keeps getting the message all the time that XP is no longer safe etc etc

    If we change to another free AV which is the easiest to add an exception for AutoKMS so as to avoid those messages from MS??

    Some AV's make it really difficult to add any exceptions.

    Any thoughts?

    TIA

    I installed AVG 2014 Free on a Windows 8.0 X86 VL Enterprise (activated with MSToolkit) and it didn't pick up AutoKMS.exe at all - I was quite surprised as even Microsoft Security Essential does??

    my avast free sometimes detects AutoKMS as virus and moves it to the virus chest :(. I have to add AutoKMS folder to the exception list :D
