Windows Security Center AntiVirus Status

Hello all,

I did a bit of searching and couldn't find an answer. What I want to
do is programmaticall y detect if the virus software is enabled or
disabled, just like how the Windows Security Center is able to detect

I'm guessing it's a registry entry, but i'm curious if it's vendor
specific. If so, is there a general area in the registry I can scan
and at least search for popular vendor names?

The code would be run within a Windows Service.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
