AVG Antivirus contains a range of components, designed to keep you and your personal data safe online. This article provides instructions to temporarily disable all AVG Antivirus protection, or individual AVG Antivirus components.
IMPORTANT: We recommend following steps in this article only when requested by AVG Support for troubleshooting purposes, as disabling AVG Antivirus protection leaves you vulnerable to attacks.
The slider turns red (OFF), and all AVG Antivirus components are disabled. AVG Antivirus protection will re-enable automatically the next time you reboot your PC.
The slider below the disabled component turns red (OFF). The component automatically re-enables after your chosen time period has passed. You can also re-enable the component manually at any time by following steps 1-2 above, then clicking the red (OFF) slider, so it immediately turns green (ON).
