In Microsoft Security Essentials, I used to disable "Monitor file and program activity on your computer" but enable "Scan all downloads." Now, Microsoft Security Essentials (MSSE) 4.0 removed the ability to configure sub-options of real-time monitoring. (See complaints about the beta on Microsoft Answers.) Is there a way to eliminate the local file and program activity? I've looked on Google, in Local Group Policy, and the Registry, yet didn't find anything.
I use Firefox 13.0.1. One option is to start using the Download Statusbar add-on again, which in the past allowed me to manually specify a virus scanning program, but I'd rather set this up strictly in MSE if I can.
