      Description

      following on from Puppet Support Call 35676, it would be beneficial to get the Puppet Agent to be a protected server/executable. 

       

      Puppet is a Desired State Configuration tool, however, you can easily stop this by "killing" the process in windows, which you dont need to be an administrator to do. Would it be possible to protect the EXE/service so it can't be stopped like an Antivirus service, so a savvy computer user could disable to the puppet agent.
