Windows 7: How to Permently Disable Microsoft Security Essentials Real time prote

How to Permently Disable Microsoft Security Essentials Real time prote

I want to permanently disable Microsoft Security Essentials Real time protection. I've found to to be a major contributing factor to various performance related problems. It can run it's daily scan at 2:00 am, that's fine. I don't need or want real time protection.

The problem is I turn it off, save it, and then by the next day at the latest, it is back on again. I can tell it's on because I will start to see lag if I am typing in a text input box on the web like this forum.

The scanning in the night part of the package is fine, so I don't want to remove it if I don't have to, but this real time junk has to go.

Thanks very much in advance.

Thanks.

I've done that at least 20 different times. I turns off, but within a day, it turns it's self back on.

Update:

I gave up, I uninstalled it. I also found some Microsoft anti-malware thing that was accessing my hd constantly.

Thanks!
