SEP 12 Settings for Standalones

I recently upgraded to Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 from Symantec 10.  Several of the systems I manage are not on any networks nor connected to the internet.  They are pure standalones.  SEP has many configuration options, of which, many of them aren't needed for these types of systems.  There are several functions (i.e., Proactive Threat, Network Threat, etc.) that do not need to be enabled for my systems.  What other settings in SEP do not need to be enabled/configured?  What specifically should have configured in the Virus and Spyware Protection Settings?

We just go with the antivirus/antispyware - nothing else.  We ran into problems with earlier versions of SEP where all these other functions caused major problems for users.

If you choose to use Proactive Threat, Network Threat and the others, if you are able to, at least give the unmanaged computers the ability to disable these other options, but do force them to keep antivirus running.

What about the settings for the Virus and Spyware Protection?  Did you change any of the default settings under the Auto-Protect Advanced Options?  Some of my users were complaining the scans were almost constant and affecting their work.  I went into the scan logs and I would see multiple scans completed within minutes of each other.
