Hi @RBator ,
Turning off the RTS will not affect your device unless you download and open any files from internet. The McAfee firewall and web-advisor will be protecting your device when you are browsing internet. Real Time Scanning (RTS) feature blocks files which have virus or unidentified signature files. Therefore your device will be safe even though the RTS feature is off if you are not opening any files downloaded from internet.
