    I use McAfee Security Center for my antivirus. Currently, I have the real-time scanner set to ask if I want to scan when I insert a removable drive, because I can't allow it to scan automatically (some of my work-related firmware files may register as viruses), and I can't disable it entirely. The pop-up I get has a box to check to "remember this setting", but it still asks every time. Is there some way to get this thing to remember to not scan a drive once I tell it not to the first time?

    Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes. Only combination you'll ever need.
