I cannot find any information on what anti-virus does if real-time protection is switched off. With real-time protection on, I get 3 choices in On-access settings, but none of them seem to be what I want.

I do a lot of copying partitions between drives and between computers on my LAN, and I get the impression that the antivirus is checking every file during those copies. This is pointless and wasteful.

I want browser downloads and incoming email attachments scanned and that's all. Is this possible ?
