...which should be a good thing, unless you have games that depend on it as they wont work.
This is, as far as i know, for Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 and Windows 10

To enable/disable:

Code:
type the following commands at an elevated command prompt. You should press Enter after you type each command.

    To disable the driver's service, type the following command:

    sc config secdrv start= disabled

    To set the driver's service to manual, type the following command:

    sc config secdrv start= demand

    To enable the driver's service (and to set it to automatic), type the following command:

    sc config secdrv start=auto

    To manually start the driver's service, type the following command:

    sc start secdrv

    To manually stop the driver's service, type the following command:

    sc stop secdrv

Code:
Or, you can edit the registry directly. To do this, follow these steps:

    Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
    Locate and then click the following subkey in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\secdrv
    Right-click Start, and then click Modify.
    In the Value data box, do one of the following:
        Type 4 to disable the driver's service, and then click OK.
        Type 3 to set the driver's service to manual, and then click OK.
        Type 2 to set the driver's service to automatic, and then click OK.
    Exit Registry Editor.
