  1. Open Antivirus tab and select Preferences.
  2. Click on Detection.
  3. If you want to disable real-time protection, a warning popup will appear at the bottom of the screen stating System is not secured.  (You must confirm your choice by selecting the specific time frame from the menu for how long you want the real-time protection to be disabled. You can disable real-time protection for 15, 30 minutes and for an hour or until the next system reboot.)
  4. Click OK.
