Windows 7: MSE "Real Time"

Windows 7 64 bit
 
 
MSE "Real Time"

When "Real Time Protection" is turned on, is it protecting just your "C" drive, or all internal drives, or all internal and external drives? I have a 250G "C" drive, and a 1T "E/F" drive. I have my WLM default storage folder on my F partition. I know I can have MSE scan C, E, and F under "custom", but is it scanning everything downloaded to "F" real-time?

Once you do a Full scan, then weekly quick scans should be good enough after that, right?

I may be wrong but as far as I know "real time" means it scans active memory. It does nothing else. You have to scan the drives for things stored.

Real-time protection means that depending on the program's features (and definition files), it is monitoring data as it is coming into the computer, whether it is a download, e-mail, inserting a CD, DVD, USB stick, a Word, Excel or other document already on the computer, or web browsing.
