As LocalSystem you can though. Not easy to demonstrate (you basically need to become a service), but really really simple for an app to do.

not sure if the same applies to Windows CE, but on desktop Windows some AV programs protect their resident protection service and won't allow it to be stopped with a simple net stop command, or such like.

I'm using NOD32, even if I forcibly kill the process using kill.exe, it respawns again immediately.
