Question: What is the Anti-Spyware real-time protection and why do I need it?
Answer: The Anti-Spyware real-time protection provides continuous protection to your computer by checking for spyware whenever a file is opened, saved or downloaded. You can turn on or off the real-time protection from the main Anti-Spyware service..
Note: We do not recommend turning off the real-time protection option. Turning off the Anti-Spyware real-time protection will also turn off the Anti-Virus and Proactive Protection services. In order to turn off these services, you will have to click Yes on the confirmation message.
