Why does McAfee Security Center Real Time Scanning keep turning off?

I have McAfee Security Center version 11.0 and Windows 7 Home Premium. My ISP supplies my AV. Until a month ago that was F-Secure, which never gave me problems.

The problem is, I get popup messages warning me that Real Time Scanning is off and my computer is at risk. I click the “turn on” button and things are fine for a while, until it happens again, seemingly at random intervals.

I have followed all the suggestions at the McAfee Communities help forum and still have the problem, although it occurs less frequently than before. I am posting this in hopes that someone reading it has had the same issue and has found a solution.Thanks!
