I believe that Antivirus vendors need to be registered with Microsoft in
order to have access to the APIs involved.
Useful information might be:
One of the things the first doc mentions is that apps registered with the
security center must be signed, I believe.

Hi: I know that XP's sec. center detects an antivirus by checking this:
-That effectively an antivirus exists
-That the signatures of it are up to date
-That real time or on demand scanning are active
-That if there is any security server.
This information was obtained from microsoft, but I didn't find how
technically it's implemented, so I wonder if somebody around here knows
to do it (I wonder there are some registry keys).
I want to know this because I want to contribute to "Moon Secure
an open source alternative that would become a serious contender for the
commercial antivirus, and currently does a good job but windows s. center
doesn't detect it. Thanks.
