Mitigation steps for Windows OS 7-10
Steps taken from the Intel-SA-00075 Mitigation Guide
1. Open a command prompt with admin rights and check if the LMS service is installed and running
If it comes back stating "the specified service does not exist as an installed service" you are not affected by this issue.
If however, it finds an LMS service proceed to step 2.
2. Disable Windows from starting and running LMS as a service
sc config LMS start=disabled
3. Remove the LMS service itself
4. Uninstall Intel Management Engine Components
Do this from the Control Panel's Add/Remove programs as per normal. If prompted to reboot, do it.
5. Check in Windows Explorer for any left overs in the C:\Programs\Intel or if your Windows is 64-bit
the C:\Programs(x86)\Intel\ folder. Any sub-directory named Intel Management Engine... should now be deleted.
If you aren't sure of the exact location, open the file C:\Intel\Logs\AMTLog.txt and scroll towards the end to see where the LMS file was stored and supposedly removed from.
6. You can also check in UEFI or BIOS for the ME subsystem entry. Some (not all) allow it to be disabled. It isn't recommended to just disable this without turning LMS off at service level in Windows first as it causes problems with some systems. Additionally, if the operating system service is left active then disabling ME in BIOS has no effect as it can be remotely turned back on again.
Don't try the above with Powershell in W10 as it fails to parse the sc command properly. Instead press the start button and type cmd.exe. right click the command prompt app and run that as admin.
Run the command in step 1 again when you are finished to make sure there are no LMS services running. It should return the "does not exist" message.
Step 2 for some reason didn't work in W7 on one 32-bit install. However the service was deleted successfully since it wasn't actually running.
