Depends on your antivirus, but mine has the ability to be postponed for several hours, and the ability to ignore an entire directory.

When I first had TS2 Uni installed, I had to bypass scanning any of those files while the game was playing.

Check the scan or protection settings to see what you can tell it to ignore if you don't leave your machine on at a time when you aren't playing on it.
