I'm thinking I could do that with Avast.
Turn off ALL the real time scanners and the auto update feature and it's pretty much dead.
Update the defs when I want and run a manual scan.
I use my laptop for live performance and am looking for a anti-virus that doesn't run in the background and use system resources. I would like to configure it so I can manually run system scans.
I only access the internet on this laptop very infrequently but it does connect to public wifi.
Is there such an option?
