Unload sysmon driver which causes the system to stop recording sysmon event logs.

Execution

fltMC.exe unload SysmonDrv

Observations

Note how in the last 35 minutes since the driver was unloaded, no further process creation events were recorded, although I spawned new processes during that time:

Note how the system thinks that the sysmon is still running, which it is, but not doing anything useful:
