How to avvoid automatic updates and scans (I want to decide time of scans and updates)

Recommended Posts


I dont want SAS to start everytime my computer stars. And I dont want scans and updates to start by itself.

I want to start scan manually and dowload updates manually, at times of my choosing, because I run some very computerintensive programems on my computer during work, and having additional programs starting up without me authorizing it can cause things to crash completely.

How do I configure it in that way?

Right now I have unchecked Scheduled scanning and Automatic updates on the "home" page.

I have also unchecked "start SAS when windows starts" in "General and Startup".

I have disabled realtime protection.

Under "updates" I have unchecked everything except notify me when updates have been dowloaded.

Is this enough? Or is there anything else I need to uncheck/check.


Best Regards,
