How To Disable AVG Antivirus

Published on May 24, 2011

Sometimes you need to disable temporarily the anti-virus software from your computer in order to install other application which may require that. AVG does not offer this option directly, with a short link, so you will have to make a few clicks in order to disable it.

1. Double click on AVG icon from system tray to open interface or right click and click Open AVG User Interface


2. Double click on Resident Shield option from main interface

3. Click on Tools/Advanced Settings link

4. Disable or uncheck option Enable Resident Shield

5. After you disable this option click Apply and OK


In this way you have disabled or shut down AVG Antivirus from running on your computer. To re-enable it follow the same steps, but check the option Enable Resident Shield this time.
