To re-enable the Real-Time Protection feature after it has been disabled, proceed through the following steps:
- With the Command Prompt, go to the folder in which you installed your adaware antivirus, type the first letters of the adawareCommandLine.exe file name (for example, "ad"), and then press the Tab key. Or type the full name.
- Type " --enable-realtime-protection" and press ENTER.
To check whether the Real-Time Protection feature was enabled in the program interface, follow these steps:
1. Double-click the adaware antivirus icon on your desktop or the tray application in the system tray to launch adaware antivirus.
2. On the left navigation menu, click Real-Time Protection.
Single click the slider to switch between two positions. The green color stands for Enabled, which means that the Real-Time Protection security service is active and fully functional. The grey color represents the Disabled status, i.e. the service is deactivated. If you do not have a good reason to deactivate the service, we strictly recommend that you keep the Real-Time Protection feature turned on.
You can also enable/disable the Real-Time Protection feature from the Home tab.
