For a while i use Disable Antivirus Auto-Protect Feature, But when I activate this feature I disconnect my PC from the internet.

In the list of options here are: 15 minutes, 1 hour, 5 hours, Until system restart, Permanently

I suggest you to add a new option: Until pc is connected to the internet

Why? Because many times, I connected the computer to the internet and forgot to activate my antivirus protection.

As a programmer, I thought this is easily accomplished. When I turn on the modem, in the corner of the screen of OS I see a change in network card. Antivirus can track / watch this change and can detect that the computer will connect to the internet. And antivirus protection is automatically activated.

Waiting for your answer!
