    How to Disable Windows 10 real time scan of removable drives...?


    How to Disable Windows 10 real time scan of removable drives when inserted? Each time, I plug it in. I get a notice that there is a virus. I already know what the files do, they are just a couple of pups. I know I can disable after inserted but I want any removable drive I plug in disable from the real-time scan. I don't share removable drives.







    Just a side note, I have the creator update installed. Intel video or realtek ethernet got on the ball and fixed the horrid blinking issue. I have been using windows 10 so far without any sort of blinking for a few day. I re-upgrade from windows 7 sp1.
