Something I'm trying to wrap my head around here. If I check the box that says run in the background without starting SAS at windows startup the SAS real time protection doesn't work , correct? So what I have to do is start SAS with windows for the real time protection to work, but doesn't SAS always run in the background anyway? What is the advantage to checking the box run in the background? Trying to figure out what boxes I need to have checked in order for the SAS real time protection to work in conjunction with MSEssentials Anti-Virus, without having problems.
