    I do not use NAV, but this seems the standard way to disable the Real Time Monitor of most AV's ;)

    The system tray icon then changes to show this disabling; a large red cross or equivalent. To double-check you can then run Task Manager, looking for the absence of the NAV Monitor process.

    This is indeed correct. The tray icon will then display with a red cross. The only problem is that at times NAV re-enables itself, comes back on. I don't know why it does this, what triggers this, I simply disable it again. o_O
