Disable protection for a set time

I thought I came across an option to disable webroot for a set period of time. I.E. for 10 minutes, 1 hour.

If not it would be useful.

Sometimes when installing something it needs to be off and I have a game I play that needs it to be off. But I always seem to forget to turn it back on so on option to auto turn on after a set period of time would be nice.

@TommyZ ,

I would recommend you do not turn off protection at any time. If an installation or game needs Webroot to be off in order to work, it is likely either hiding some malicious code, or can be whitelisted via Webroot settings. With games in particular, I would go ahead and whitelist any games within Webroot. You can read about how to do that here:
